It’s been long since I posted here, so let me tell you my experience during the 20th of February, the day where I was supposed to go to UP Diliman for AME Fair X:
In anticipation of the upcoming World Street Food Congress this April, Singapore-based food guide Makansutra, the Department of Tourism and Ayala Malls presented the 15-Hour Food Frenzy Safari, which took the local and international media present to a five-city trip throughout Pampanga and Metro Manila to taste the delicacies these cities can offer. Our Awesome Planet’s Anton Diaz also brief the participants what to expect on the tour.
The tour has crossed through four locations in Pampanga and five locations around the Metro, starting at Recovery Food at the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig which served their Tapa de Morning. The tour then went to Pampanga, and the first destination is Everybody’s Café in the City of San Fernando, which has been running since 1946 and is dubbed as a home to Kapampangan cuisine.
The next stop is the famous Aling Lucing’s sisig at the City of Angeles where the dish was invented in 1974. Following that, the tour rushed over to Café Fleur of Chef Sau Del Rosario for a lunch of avant-garde Kapampangan dishes with an international twist. The last stop in the tour is the Ayala Marquee Mall in Pampanga wherein everyone got a taste of the delicious classic Ensaimada.
You read it right — 15 hours of food, travel, and good times.
You may be wondering as well where currently I am — I’m currently an events coordinator at Ex-Link Events, where you can see more about the Food Frenzy Safari tour (Read more here).
I also have updates on Twitter (@JayAgonoy) about this.
