Merry Moo, a 5-time UTT winner, is very consistent in introducing new ice cream flavors that foodies rave about. It’s proudly Filipino-made and supports the local communities.

I love the Scandalously Chocolate made from our very own Malagos Chocolate in Davao, and it actually tastes like and has the texture of Royce Chocolate. Matcha lovers would surely love the unique White Choco and Matcha Green Tea flavor combination.

Congratulations to Kelvin Ngo of Merry Moo for winning the top overall spot and grand prize in the Ultimate Taste Test 12 series!

Almost all the foodies during the Rockwell UTT were raving about the Crispy Pork Belly con Chorizo Paella by Kulinarya Kitchen. Some people also liked the Seafood Salad in maki form. Kulinarya understands the Pinoy palate and creates simple comfort food dishes to crave for. 

This Pinoy-inspired paella and seafood maki are great potluck options to bring to your family reunion or celebration this holiday season.

Good Job to Kulinarya Kitchen for winning the #2 top spot in Ultimate Taste Test 12!

We like Dulcelin Gourmet‘s Red Rice with Shrimp Shiso & Quail Eggs, which is similar to Thailand’s Miang Kham snack. It comes with different flavors that complement and balanced each other out, in a small, bite size form. This is a popular appetizer in their restaurant at UP Town Center. 

Dulcelin is famous for their Mango Torte, but foodies also love their Cacao con Leche. 🙂

Congratulations to Ricky and Mico Morelos for winning the #3 top spot in Ultimate Taste Test 12!

Blue Bell ice cream is extra creamy and quite addicting. I personally like their Sea Salt Caramel flavor.

Ever since Sonja’s introduced the Red Velvet flavor in 2006, Filipinos have fallen in love with it. 🙂 Blue Bell produces the best Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream we’ve ever tasted in Manila. 

Order the Blue Bell Red Velvet Cake & Sea Salt Caramel flavors for a unique ice cream experience this coming holiday season.

Congratulations, Blue Bell Ice Cream for winning the 4th spot in the Rockwell UTT 2014!

Ultimate Taste Test 12-19.jpg

Foodies agree that this is one of the best lasagna dishes in Manila. 🙂 It’s creamy, cheesy, and a little salty. The cheese can be overpowering though, so adding a bit more meat could help balance it out.

This is a good dish to order for potluck parties or for your celebrations this Christmas season.

Congratulations to Ms. Bhe for winning in the 4th Rockwell UTT!

Ultimate Taste Test 12-30.jpg

Most foodies raved about the Boneless Lechon Belly de Cebu from Belly Bob’s. The lechon belly was cooked in authentic Cebu-style–crispy skin, a bit salty, no need for lechon sauce, and best paired with vinegar.

The sisig they offer got mixed reaction because it’s too oily, and reminded people of how fatty it is.

Instead of serving a whole lechon this Christmas season, consider serving Boneless Lechon Belly.

Congratulations to Belly Bob’s for winning in the Ultimate Taste Test 12 in Rockwell!
