It was a truly tummy-filling day last September 14, 2013, at the Ultimate Taste Test, which took place at the Rockwell Tent, where a thousand foodies gathered to taste and critique food offerings from over 50 food vendors. Having attended a couple of similar food events these past months, I was ecstatic because it was my first time to attend UTT.
I was truly impressed with most of the food offered, but here are the 20 food stalls that impressed me during my 5-hour binge. Yes, I was a saint and tried everything.
1. Hamwich by The Plaza Premium Baked Ham
An old favorite, I always The Plaza at SM Megamall. They now have an awesome selection of sauces like Premium Glaze, Wasabe Mayo, Sweet Mustard, and Gutsy Garlic. I'm planning to get one for my family this Christmas.
2. Peanut Butter Oreo Dip by Cakeworks
Peanut Butter + Oreo? Deliriously yummy dip in a jar! Goes well with crackers, bread, and even fruit slices. :)
3. Wagamama by Schmidt's Gourmet Hotdogs
Schmidt's had done it again. I was first impressed by the Wagamama at Foodgasm 3 and it hasn't failed in impressing me again and again!
4. Pata Bihon by Shifu Master's Kitchen
The Pata Bihon is sweet and saucy with lots of pork slices, just the way I like my pancit to be.
5. Diplahan Lechon
Diplahan Lechon is from Zamboanga, best partnered with vinegar as sawsawan.
6. Garlic Lechon by General's Lechon
Negros' version has this tempting aroma that you can smell from a distance.
7. Duck Burgers and Salted Eggs from GoldenducK's
Freshly-cooked 100% duck meat patties and salted eggs prepared by cute guys? Who would say no to that? :)
8. Sultry Roast Beef with Saucy Gravy by The Sultry Chef
Roast beef is one of the greatest weaknesses and I do love former Pinoy Masterchef Ivory Yat's version. Tender and flavorful, yeah, sultry. :)
9. Crispy Pork Sisig by Dennis The Grillboy
Sisig is one of the most wonderful dishes the Kapampangans ever invented.
10. King Kong Apple Pie by The Juice Barista
I loved their Green Cayenne Reboot at Foodgasm 3, but I loved them more with the King Kong Apple Pie, which is sweeter and friendlier to my tastebuds.
