This is the best sisig I have ever tasted — it’s healthy, certified vegetarian, and as yummy as the original version. 🙂 V Deli serves it shawarma-style, wrapped in pita, and can be eaten on the go.

I’m excited that vegetarian food won the #5 spot in Ultimate Taste Test XI! They have proven that vegetarian food can be fun and yummy, and not bland and boring as some expect it to be.

Schmidt’s serves the best hotdogs in town, with different variations inspired by the famous hotdog flavors around the world! Our favorite hotdogs are Wagamama and Coney Island.

We first discovered them when Cucina Andare opened last December. 🙂 They’ve outlived the other hotdog food stalls in the market, and continue to satisfy any foodie wherever they go.

Congratulations for winning the #6 spot in the Main Dish category at Ultimate Taste Test XI!

Manila’s Favorite Sisig (circa 1986) has been reincarnated into a new brand called Dennis The Grill Boy, with a crispier and yummier version of sisig on a sizzling plate. 🙂

This is one of those fast food chains that offers affordable food without sacrificing quality. Most of the foodies agree that it is still the yummiest sisig in Manila. 🙂

Congratulations for winning the #7 spot at the Ultimate Taste Test’s Main Dish category!

STUFFED! A Thanksgiving Food Festival for the Benefit of Typhoon Yolanda Victims @TheGrovebyRockwell

STUFFED!-A-Thanksgiving-Food-Festival

 Celebrating Life at Stuffed: A Thanksgiving Food Festival

It may not be common for Filipinos to bring out the turkey and pumpkin pie when November rolls around, but that doesn’t stop The Grove by Rockwell and Our Awesome Planet from throwing a one-of-a-kind Thanksgiving get-together. Celebrating the best of family, food, and community at Stuffed: A Thanksgiving Food Festival, over 20 concessionaries curated by Our Awesome Planet will line The Grove by Rockwell Community Center on November 15-17.

In light of the recent tragedy that has ravaged the Visayas region, diners also have the choice to help out, with The Grove serving as a receiving station for donations for victims of Typhoon Yolanda. The community and guests are invited to bring items such as rice, canned goods, noodles, coffee, water, toiletries, and medicine, which will benefit those affected by the storm, through the ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya Foundation and the Lopez Group Foundation.

What’s great about The Plaza Premium Baked Ham is how they were able to keep the quality of their ham consistent for 40+ years. It’s smoked, baked, boiled, and never too salty.

There are people and corporations who make sure they include The Plaza Premium Baked Ham in their Christmas giveaways for the Holiday Season. It, indeed, tastes like Christmas!

Congratulations to Karla Reyes of The Plaza for winning in the Ultimate Taste Test XI!

TU’KA is the yummiest vinegar I have ever tasted! It’s an all-natural dipping sauce with a little bit of sweetness and spice. The flavor is addicting and is best paired with meat, fried dishes, or crackers. Indeed, Mauutal Ka Ta Talap!

You’ve got to have this on your Christmas table this Holiday Season. It’s also a great foodie gift. 🙂

Congratulations for winning over plenty of foodie fans at the Ultimate Taste Test XI!

I love meeting fresh new talents who are passionate about food and introduce innovative ways of enjoying the eating experience. Chef Polo Chua is one such talent, and his entry in UTT XI, a homemade ravioli topped with homemade sauce, fried on one side to give it that nice crunch, promises a burst of flavor with each bite.

We like it and it’s a certified favorite of my son Raphael. 🙂  

Congratulations for winning the #10 spot in the UTT XI Main Dish Category!
