GOLDEN DUCK BURGER is one of our best discoveries in the Ultimate Taste Test Series! 🙂

GENERAL’S LECHON is the winner of the Battle of Lechons in the recent UTT XI. 🙂 It is a Negros Lechon, which does not need sauce like the Cebu Lechon, and also differs in its use of a unique mix of spices. 

It is considered to be one of the best lechons in Manila!  I like the Original Garlic version. 🙂 Order this to satisfy your lechon cravings this Holiday Season. 🙂

Check out: General’s Lechon Private Kitchen Taste Test

Congratulations for winning the #4 spot in Ultimate Taste Test!

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!
