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!

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!

Jameson is the latest Gelato player that most foodies raved about in the recent UTT series. An ice cream maker even praised Jameson as having the best gelato, beating all the other ice creams in the event. 

I like their Salted Caramel & Pistachio. And because it has less butterfat than regular ice cream, you can enjoy more of the natural flavors of the ingredients.

Congrats to Jameson and good luck with the gelato business!

I love this new ice cream player because they are an advocate of showcasing the best ingredients and flavors of the Philippines. They ensure that they only use natural ingredients available locally, such as Carabao’s milk. I like their bold combinations of Sulu Coffee with Salted Muscovado Swirl, and Malunggay & Langka. 

Congratulations to Cream of the Crop for winning the #3 spot in the UTT XI series!

We love CINQ’s tarts because they’re proudly made using natural and local ingredients, the caramel and sponges are made from scratch, and they come in a unique form and presentation. They’re a great dessert gift for this holiday season. 🙂

Congratulations to Angela Villoria for winning the #4 spot in the UTT XI competition!
