Pinakbest is one of the most popular food vendors (and a personal favorite of mine) at Midnight Mercato. With their offerings of Bagnet, Ilocos Norte Empanada and Longganiza, they are doing a great job of promoting Ilocos Food. This is as close as you can get to authentic Bagnet and Ilocos Empanada in Manila!

At Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test, they had one of the longest lines. 🙂 I’m happy they met the cut-off rating of 3.5.  Congratulations to Pinakbest!

My Cheers Moments @ Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test

This was a very special Ultimate Taste Test (UTT) for us.

For background info, please read these first:

We loved collaborating with Rockwell for the 6th staging of this taste test series (in just 3 years!). We had a total of 1,000+ foodies, 53 food vendors and Manila’s top food bloggers who supported this event.

This was the first time that we held it in Rockwell and the first time we had a 9-hour UTT.

Here are my Cheers Moments in photos of the ultimate gastronomic taste event in Manila…

The Foodies’ Guide to Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test

UPDATED: 9/2 – Final List of 55 Food Vendors. 

Here are some foodie tips for the upcoming Ultimate Taste Test Event at Rockwell:

1. Make it memorable by sharing the experience with your closest friends or family.

It is best to enjoy the tasting event with your family and friends who enjoy food. This is a good venue to reunite with long-lost friends or to celebrate a special occasion with your family.

2. Take your time and savor each bite.

We are making the event the entire day so that you can avoid the long queues and come at whatever’s the most convenient time for you. We have enough food for 1,000 foodies, so take your time going from one food vendor to another.

It is recommended to talk to the owners themselves to understand the story behind the food you’re tasting.

The ticket comes with a San Miguel beer of your choice: Premium All Malt, Cerveza Negra or Super Dry.  Pair and savor it with whatever you have on hand — appetizer, main dish or a sweet dessert!  An experience you may want to try (only for those 18 years old and above!)
