Thank you Ultimate Taste Test. Hello Best Food Forward!

The much awaited 12th series of the ULTIMATE TASTE TEST has just concluded. This is the 4th time for UTT to be held at The Rockwell Tent and as expected, it was very well attended by foodies all over the metro. We got there at 11 AM on the dot & it was already swarming with eager, hungry people waiting to taste.. taste.. and taste more from over 50 concessionaires. Headcount reached 1,000 so it was a another successful event for Mr. Our Awesome Planet.

Ultimate Taste Test is all about tasting. Not eating. So don’t expect to get a huge serving. But still, I frowned on some (not all) concessionaires who gave so little that it was borderline insulting. So my advice if you want your money’s worth is: if you’re in a group, accept their samples even if you don’t like it -then just trade with a friend. Coz your passport gets stamped once & that’s it. No seconds for you. That’s what my girls & I did. They gave me what they didn’t particularly like & I gave them bits & pieces that I couldn’t eat. I must say, it worked out quite nicely. ;)

Our handsome bossman, SPANKY ENRIQUEZ was the host so of course, the KTG members came in droves to cheer him on & just generally hang with him & make him kulit. ;))

For you ladies out there looking for a Prince Charming, the Bossman is SINGLE & READY TO MINGLE! ;)

I was able to bump into some foodie friends & it was like a reunion of sorts. With plenty of chatting & eating in between picture taking. :P

The new mommah (round 4) doesn’t look like she just gave birth & was super blooming. Hi RACHE a.k.a. Mrs. Awesome Planet! <3 She was taking care of her 3 boys (okay, plus Anton so that makes it 4) but she did it with so much class & grace. Talk about grace under pressure.

Although the tasting bits were really very small (like 1 toothpick with 3 meats skewered in per person!) I found this lamb ham good & unique. Regardless the size I got, this lamb ham deserves a round of applause.

Now these people had the charm AND they were so generous with their samples too! Service with a smile, and a plateful that will also make you smile. Pefect combination. They definitely get a 10! <3 Of course, the porchetta being so crispy on the outside and succulent & tasty on the inside are added plus points!

Please don’t forget to visit my friends at the Best Food Forward:

Indulgence by Irene Cheesecakes. Loved by many.

To name a few of the top bloggers who swear by it: My Mom Friday / Food Reviews Manila / Blogalag / Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice/ EricJaz Foodies / Dude For Food / The Mommist / Food In The Bag / En Route / Between Bites / Hearty’s Haven / That Girl Trixie / Yedylicious / The Tummy Traveler / The Purple Doll / Trip or Treats / Ask Me Whats / When in Manila / The Paolo Project / Shoot First Eat Later / Dementia Foodista / Pinoy Cuisine / Glich’s Life / Jin Loves to Eat / The Food Alphabet / Juice.ph / The Food Scout / The Pickiest Eater in The World / Dencio / The Candishhh Tales / Frannywanny / Foodiemanila.

Need I say more? Available in 9 inch – P1000; and 4 inch – P220

These beautiful cheesecakes (photos below couresy of my very talented friend, Guia Obsum of foodreviewsmanila) are easily the YUMMIEST cheesecake I’ve ever had. And the price is also unbeatable especially since each cheesecake is packed with the pricey Philadelphia Cream Cheese filling.

I was actually surprised that a heavy (some “cheesecakes” are light & airy) & creamy quality cheesecake can come in a 220 php box! Not bad! Definitely in my Christmas gift list.  My favorite is the QDB, I can’t stop with just a forkful. But the new Calamansi flavor comes really close. Sweet, salty & tangy. Just the perfect combination. The Chocnut comes 3rd, and the Ube & Tablea vying for 4th -but only because I LOVE clean cheese.

For Orders:
0922-8303900 and 0917-6225800. Place your orders at least 2 days in advance.
Pick up Points:
Astoria Plaza, Ortigas &
Aseana City – early mornings and late afternoons.
