Ultimate Taste Test 4.0 — Don’t miss it! :)

Our Awesome Planet and San Miguel Lifestyle Brews invite you to the Biggest Ultimate Taste Test ever in the Philippines!

Finally, the Ultimate Taste Test Event we’ve all been waiting for… 🙂 I’m excited because we are now staging it in the NBC Tent with 50 suppliers (see list below) and as many as 1,000 Foodies. We will accept walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis until the 1,000th foodie slot.

You can taste ANY of the latest food in Manila and even pair it with San Miguel Super Dry, Premium All-Malt or Cerveza Negra. 🙂 Technically, it is not a buffet. Just imagine yourself going inside the kitchens of these home-based food businesses and getting a taste of their food. The best thing about this experience is that you can rate them and provide feedback to these food/drink suppliers. 🙂

  1. We already did reserve two slots a month ago thru paypal and just by giving our email address as our only ID, like you instructed/ mentioned on your previous blog. Do we need to reconfirm it?? Im just kinda worried, because the price for the pre-registration wasn’t 230 before, there might be some discrepancy with our reservations.

  2. Wheeeeee! So excited it was moved. I would’ve missed it if it pushed through last April. I’m just waiting for confirmation from Rache. The last UTT was wonderful, but I know this will be even better. Cannot wait!

  3. im just wondering, only 1,000 foodie slots for this event? would it be late if i register by tomorrow? i’m a bit excited coz it’s my 1st time to attend if ever?? pls enlighten…

  4. 1,000 slots? better invite my friends now! I just hope that my hectic schedule would allow me. Thank you very much for sharing this Anton! Hope I would be able to meet you when I decide to join!

  5. anton, pls save a slot for me and about three other foodies.. we’ll deposit the fee tomorrow. thanks!

  6. Good luck, Anton! Looks like another success! Really wish we could go! 🙁 Hopefully, we get to go in the next UTT!

  7. I just made my deposit for 2 slots. see you. 😀
    btw, how do you choose the suppliers? or do they just apply?

  8. They just apply and we see if this is something worth tasting 🙂 Some are previous winners in the Taste Test and they offer new products 🙂

  9. We can probably offer the P30 option for the first beer for those who pre-registered. We were able to fix the pricing  just recently. Beer will be available for tasting but you can purchase a bottle for P50 of San Miguel Super Dry / Cerveza Negra / San Miguel Premium All-Malt 

  10. Hi! The +P30 is optional, right? I deposited only 400 for 2 slots since we are not beer drinkers. I hope it’s ok!

  11. Hi Anton! In case we don’t really drink beer, is the contribution fee still P230/head? Or are there any other drinks offered besides the beer? Thank you!

  12. Hi Anton! Just wondering, how many slots are still available? What if I deposit tomorrow and it turns out there are no more slots left? Thanks!

  13. Hi Anton! Ted Capacillo here – remember me as the winner of the free tickets to the recent RENT restaging? My wife Joyce and I have been waiting for UTT 4.0 all this time. More so now that CHILE VITAS is one of the suppliers – the owner is a marketing consultancy client of my wife who practically developed the brand. Unfortunately I got to read your post only now so I have the same concern as the guy before me – I plan to deposit my payment tomorrow morning, but what if there are no more slots left? Considering your current readership base, 1000 slots can be easily filled up in a jiffy. We’ve already missed the previous 3 tasting events (the latest by merely about a dozen slots past the cut-off) so we don’t intend to be left out this time around – not if we can help it. A wee bit of an S.O.S. distress call here?

  14. Hi Kar,
    There are still a lot of slots left because we will only count reservation once it is paid. We are still expecting to accommodate some walk-ins next week. 

  15. Hi Ted,
    We are just nearing the 500 mark for those who paid and pre-register. There are a lot who wants to reserve a slot but we only official include it in the list once it is paid. We expect to get full after elections 🙂

  16. Hello Anton.
    My friends and i would love to go to this event unfortunately we didnt make it on time at the bank, are there still slots available if we will deposit first thing in the morning? we are around 6.

  17. Thanks Anton. We probably won’t avail the P30.00 beer since most of us are not beer drinker.Will deposit the money on tuesday first thing in the morning.

  18. Yes we will still have slots until next week since there are some people who would deposit next week pa. Thanks Crystal!

  19. Hi! I’d like to register right away. If I don’t want to wait until the banks open up on Tuesday, Paypal would be an option right? Since my Paypal skills are a bit rusty at the moment, could you help me out with the steps?

  20. Hi Anton, kindly reserve 1 slot for me (reserving for someone else as I already have my own reservation). Will deposit payment on Tuesday and email your wife right after. Thanks!

  21. Yes, we still have 250 slots left and we expect to close registration on Wednesday. So OK pa if you deposit on Tuesday…
    See you Lauren!

  22. Last 250 slots with lots of people depositing tomorrow… We estimate that as long as you can deposit tomorrow, then you should be able to secure a slot. We are closing registration hopefully on Wednesday.

  23. Hi Anton, are the food supplier slots still available? I just sent Rache an email. Will also be reserving 3 foodie slots by tomorrow. Thanks.

  24. Hi Anton! Is it possible to pay on the day itself? I’m not sure if I’ll be back in time but I really want to go..

  25. Ella, 
    Well we can accept food supplier slots until today. We are 50 na but can accept last minute but until today na lang…

  26. Hi! I’ll be paying for a group of 4 today. This would be our first UTT event 🙂
    Btw, will both the tasting and program start at 7pm?

  27. Hello Anton, I deposited P460 last may 6, and emailed your wife.. if i dont get a confirmation thru email, can i just present the deposit slip at the event’s gate?

  28. Anton, made the payment already this morning. We’re 7 na 🙂 sent an email to Rache as well. Thanks 🙂

  29. Hi Anton! My wife deposited P600 for 3 persons today at 9:33 A.M. I wanted the P30 beer promo for myself but she forgot about it. At any rate, I already emailed Rache the details. Just in case I don’t receive a confirmation email, I will just present the deposit slip on Friday. Can hardly wait – see you then!

  30. For now, we only require suppliers to supply taste test portions (1 bite) to 1,000 foodies and for those bringing in electrical stuff, there is a minimum fee. 

  31. hi,
    just made our deposit this morning. Wanted to ask if these suppliers will also be selling their specialties in case “one bite” isn’t enough?

  32. Hi Anton, we’d like to reserve 4-5 slots. Are there still slots available? We might get to deposit tomorrow or Thursday pa 🙁 Hope that’s ok! Please please let us know.
    Oh and if we don’t want to get the beer, do we pay P200 or is the P230 rate fixed?

  33. Hi Anton, I already paid last Friday and emailed your wife to reserve for 10 slots. I hope you can send a confirmation email.
    Thanks! 🙂

  34. Hi, Anton! We’d like to pre-register 2 slots for this event. Are there still slots available? Many thanks 🙂

  35. Hi anton, I deposited a reservation for 10 slots last friday and emailed your wife already but no confirmation email received yet :I I’ll just email her again at rachediaz@gmail.com as you suggested to the other commenter. See you on friday but I hope you can send a confirmation email as well 🙂

  36. hello.. I emailed both email add but i still havent received the confirmation also, baka marami nag eemail kaya napuno na inbox ni miss rache .. i know i can just bring the deposit slip but somehow for my peace of mind im looking for some reassurance that my deposit reached its proper destination. 🙂

  37. Hi anton, we reserved 4 slots and we sent the details to the email you gave, but we haven’t received any replies yet. we’re kinda worried… 🙁

  38. hi guys. i also emailed last thursday, may 6. i’ll just bring the deposit slip. see you guys 🙂

  39. Hi anton, just so now that pre-reg was closed yesterday? Sadly, wasnt able to make it to the bank before it closed. Is there any other way to secure 2 slots? Can I still pre-register today?

  40. Hi Melo,
    As much as we want to accommodate all foodies, we are overbooked. We wanted to ensure we have enough taste test portions for those who pre-register. 
    We will invite super early for the UTT5.0 event in August.

  41. Hello.
    Is it just me who’s not getting a confirmation? ive emailed 3x already in both email addresses. im worried that i’m not included in the reserved slots. ive deposited early last May 6.

  42. Hi Anton, have deposited yesterday for 7 slots and havent received confirmation from Rache. Just wanted to make sure we are reserved for tomorrow 🙂 will just bring the deposit slip. see you, thanks!

  43. Hi Anton,
    I also deposited and no confirmation yet. Will just bring deposit slip. Thank you!

  44. hi! can we come as walk-in foodies and pay during the reg? i think it’s a bit late for us to deposit the money.

  45. I sent my email last Friday and another one last Tuesday. But I never received an email confirmation. How do I know if the 7 of us are confirmed?

  46. Hi Gibo,
    We won't allow walk-ins during the event because we are overbooked as it is… We will invite earlier next time.

  47. i paid for pre registration via paypal last wed morning, and i havent gotten a confirmation yet. can i just print the online receipt and bring it tonight?

  48. aug dapat ang next utt pero you havent really posted who won or featured it yet just wondering why ganun ba talaga yun?

  49. Hi Anton,
    Can you send me the link of the ratings during the event? Because I’m searching for it and can’t find it… was expecting that you’ll be posting it one week after the event.
    sent it to ininsports@yahoo.com
