Rockwell’s 3rd Ultimate Taste Test was the BEST ever because of the quality selection of over 50 innovative food vendors, and a fun-filled food tasting experience overall.
Let’s look back at this recent Rockwell UTT, held last September 14, 2013…
This sold-out taste test event is the 11th in the UTT series overall, and the 3rd straight year it’s been held at Rockwell.
There was a good mix of appetizers, mains, and desserts spread throughout the whole venue, with no long queues at any point during the event.
It was great to open the festivities with my good friend Spanx, who also hosted this memorable UTT event. 🙂
We had the Battle of Lechon: Generals Lechon…
…vs. Diplahan Lechon.
Just in time for the Christmas Season — The Plaza Premium Baked Ham.
I also loved the Battle of the Sisig between Dennis The Grill Boy Crispy Pork Sisig…
…and V Deli’s Veggie Sisig Shawarma. 🙂
Most foodies praised this Tu’Ka as the best vinegar they ever tasted! 🙂
One of the most raved about main dishes: Yuan’s Chicken Wings. 🙂
Which is best paired with San Miguel Super Dry. 🙂
It was great to see Chef Jam Melchor, who is starting his own restaurant venture after Villa Cafe.
Thanks to Generals Lechon’s Bryan and Lynn, sister Chef Jyn, and Chef Sau for the awesome support for UTT!
Celebrity Chef Shar hung out at the UTT with our favorite foodie blogger, Jin Loves to Eat 🙂
Chef Raphael wearing Chef’s Garbs enjoyed his Ultimate Taste Test experience all day.
The latest creation from Enchanted Farm — Duck Burger from Golden Duck Enterprises. 🙂
It was fun seeing young, innovative chefs prepare their offerings, like this ricemeal stuffed in a sausage by Big Jack’s.
3 Jimenez Sisters and a daughter enjoying their UTT experience.
Much love to the young and vibrant foodies in Manila who supported this UTT event.
It was good to see newly-weds Em and Eugene Chua having their date at UTT XI. Sweet!

For dessert, our favorite was the Puentespina Family’s Malagos 65% Dark Chocolate. This was highly rated by the US-based C-Spot Chocolate rating site.
But I like their 75% Dark Chocolate better, which they tested with foodies during the event.
One of the best foodie hits — the home-based Bronuts!
Catherine’s Apple Pie was surpringly very good, too. 🙂
There was the three-way battle of ice cream: Jameson’s Gelato…
…vs. Cream of the Crop…
…vs. Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream.
Pam’s Everyday Mom is known for having the best healthy cakes — butter-free, baked in stainless steel pans, natural ingredients, real flavors, and no preservatives.
Did you know that you can pair the Black & White Cupcake with Cerveza Negra?
This looks simple but one of the yummiest we’ve tried — Uni-Chefs’ Ube Macapuno Cake!
Another favorite of mine — Green Baker’s Choco dipped Malunggay Cookies! 🙂
Shmallows anyone? It’s marshmallow in spread form.
This is the only dessert that I always come back for — Hacienda Macalauan’s Greek Yogurt!
Introducing…The Original Monkey Bread!
Indeed, the BEST flavored Taho I’ve ever tasted – Everything with Soya Chilled Taho. It was very smooth, balanced sweetness and good flavor.
As evening approached, the ambiance turned into that of a big cocktail party. 🙂
One of my favorite segments during the UTT was the panel discussion with the Top Food Bloggers in Manila.
Meet sexy food blogger Jane Chua of Between Bites.
Chef Michelle Adrilliana of Flavors on Fire cooks for the audience.
This was a fun segment — determining the flavor of beer you are drinking. 🙂
