  2. Awww gee shucks! Tickets already up for grabs among waitlisted foodies and still I can’t make it – no thanks to it coinciding with our desserts bazaar participation at The Venice Piazza. Life just ain’t fair at times. ūüôĀ
    But no participation this time by Dulcellin, Tina Raines, Divine Desserts, Denim Kitchen, Chile Vitas and a few other faves from past UTT events? Hmmm… Based on the aforementioned list of suppliers, the sense of anticipation has somewhat gone a bit down compared to UTT 4.0 IMHO. But still a formidable roster nevertheless.
    I can personally vouch for Tres Amores Home-made Apple Pie – Amor’s creations are the closest thing to honest-to-goodness apple pies hereabouts.
    At any rate, congratulations on this latest feather to your cap, Anton and Rache! And OAP TV? It’s about time – nay, long overdue! ūüôā

  3. Hi there, I hope this is allowed [if it isn’t, please just delete my comment, so sorry]. I can’t go to UTT 5. I was really, really excited to, but something important came up.
    I’ve got four tickets that I’m willing to sell for PhP350 each. Please do text me at 09175153381 or email me at if you’d like to buy them. ūüôā

  4. ERRATUM: I saw just now that Dulcellin is participating after all – they’re # 34 on the above list. Sorry, my bad – and now I feel even worse that I can’t go. ūüôĀ

  5. Thanks for the comment Ted as always ūüôā It has always been the vision of the Ultimate Taste Test to give a break to new foodie suppliers ūüôā
    Also, one of the reasons why your favorites are not joining is that they are preparing for the opening of Mercato Centrale ūüôā

  6. Hello! Any reminders for the folks coming later? (Also, do we bring our own water bottles like last year, and can we bring a camera to document our experience?

  7. Hi Anton! Just want to ask where else can I buy the Oktoberfest San Miguel Beer Limited Edition Pack? I wanted to attend UTT 5.0 but the tickets were sold out
    right away!
    Thanks anyways!

  8. Congratulations to Anton for the success of the UTT 5.0! My husband and I had a blast last night!
    Congrats also on the OAP TV! Can’t Wait! On which channel will it be shown?
    More power! Cheers!

  9. I hope OAP TV will be something that can rival Discovery’s TLC. There are so many talented Filipinos who can do to OAP what others have done to TLC. Congratulations Anton! I have been a follower of OAP since the early years.

  10. OAP TV will be shown in The Filipino Channel and choosing where to air it either in ANC or Studio 23. We are limited to ABS-CBN sites…

  11. successful event. congrats anton. although i had one comment though, i was expecting something like Sitti, Richard Poon, and OPM jazz artist(Johnny Alegre or Brass Monkeys) to perform, and not the likes of Salbakuta.
