Best of Pinoy Streetfood Cook-Off Grand Finals At SM Hypermarket

Last November 28, 2014, the finalists from the different SM Hypermarket branches compete for the Grand Finals of SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Streetfood 2014. From the numerous contestants, only 10 made it to the finals which was held at the SM Hypermarket Cubao branch along EDSA.


The popular Chef Boy Logro of Kusina Master was one of the chef judges during the finals.


These are the finalists from different SM Hypermarket branches.


The 10 finalists are grouped into 5 pairs and was tasked to create a delicious meal of pancit. They were given an hour to shop and cook for about 100 pax. Only two groups will be selected from this elimination round who will vie for the grand finals. Goodluck guys!


They all had a blast shopping for ingredients inside SM Hypermarket Cubao. Each pair was assisted with Hypermarket staff so that getting the items off the shelves will be easier and faster.






At the counter, they're suppose to stay within their P1,000 budget.






And the cooking frenzy begins ...






















Aside from the chef judges, a group of culinary students and people from the audience (bloggers included) were tasked to have a bite (or two) of the pancit prepapred by the finalists. Each plate is color-coded. Afterwards, all the judges lined up on stage to drop their tokens on which pancit is the best for them.





































So who are the lucky ones who will vie for the title of "Best Pinoy Streetfood Chef?" Stay tuned.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.
