During the long break last weekend, I opted to stay in the more serene Metro Manila, while everyone else was out of town. This enabled me to go to some foodie events, including the biggest street food fest of SM Hypermarket.
This was held at the activity center of Mall of Asia.
When I arrived, it was the celebrity chef, Boy Logro on stage. He was then whipping up his own version of street food in front of a big crowd. The Kusina Master was funny, entertaining his audience while making them hungry at the same time. He made it a point though to share some of his cooking samples. I missed my chance while I was going around visiting several stalls.
The event featured over 50 food establishments, some of them were big brands that have been part of our kitchen all our lives. I spotted some Ilocos empanada, takoyaki, sisig, crispy crablets, lechon, kakanin, chicharon, kwek kwek and many more! SM Eats was also around with their famous National Meryenda, turon with langka for just Php 20!
The brands that joined in like Nestle, San Miguel, Unilever, Alaska, Century, Del Monte, P&G, Monde, Bounty Fresh, CDO, Farm Fresh and Mekeni were around to sell their products at a discounted price and also conducted fun activities in the form of games.
There were also other celebrities that were present but I missed them when I left for another event. They were Marian Rivera, JM de Guzman, Rayver Cruz, JC Santos, Kalad Karen and the PGT Baby Boys!
