Top 3 Winners of Ultimate Taste Test Masters Edition 2018 1. LA CARNITA Nachos Ala Bomba Overall Rating: 4.04 BEST APPETIZER OVERALL WINNER https://flic.kr/p/2cRAB2G About La Carnita La Carnita Modern Mexican Cantina started January 2017 in The Food Hive food park on Visayas Avenue. The stall offers Mexican products such as Quesadilla and Burrito wrap, but the flavors are quite adaptive to the Filipino palate. Above all, the people behind the Cantina make sure that they provide a “ UNIQUE REAL GOOD PRODUCT” that only La Carnita can offer. https://www.flickr.com/photos/diaz/45899691411/in/album-72157702143328801/ For the UTT Masters Edition, La Cantina served their nachos redefined in a modern way. Nachos ala Bomba is a grilled nacho dish with Beef, Salsa, Beans, Cheddar shavings, Mozzarella and Homemade La Carnita Cheese sauce grilled together and poured on top of very thin and crispy nacho chips. I was elated to find out that La Carnita won Best Appetizer for UTT Masters Edition. Whenever newcomers would arrive at the event, the first thing they would ask was: “What should we try first?” La Carnita was always part of my answer as it really was the best light dish to start with.

2. CHANG THAI Overall Rating: 4.02 BEST MAIN DISH OVERALL WINNER! https://flic.kr/p/2cVZoMR About Chang Thai
Aof Suwannalert (not pictured), a Thai Chef from Chiang Mai, founded Chang Thai. She has been in Manila for the past 5 years and has worked both as chef consultant and chef under Chef Sau Del Rosario. She is being assisted by her husband Carlo.
With the vision of introducing honest, fresh and authentic Thai food in Manila, she decided to start Chang Thai at the Legazpi Sunday Market in Makati a couple of years ago and has since opened stalls in Makati and BGC. Chang Thai has also started to do private caterings and has been chosen as one of the food providers and event caterers for the Royal Thai Embassy of Manila.
https://flic.kr/p/PaTuoP Can’t say I’m surprised that Chang Thai won best Main Dish! I wanted to get second helpings of the Catfish Salad and the Pad Thai but I needed to make sure that the other samplers also got a taste of them.
