For those who weren’t able to participate, there was an exciting raffle draw that offered guests the chance to win coveted prizes. Enjoy the festival by grooving to live music. So bring your friends out for some roarin’ good fun! Without exaggerating, Oktoberfest food is one of the most satisfying, indulgent grub you’ll ever experience. All the better when you pair it with liters of beer. Menu Authentic German bread and pretzels in baskets in platters were served. The Germans may be known for their pork dishes, but it was hard to ignore the tantalizing rows of roast chicken all over Oktoberfest. Rip a roast chicken with your fingers after a few liters of beer. One of my favorite treats was devouring roasted pork knuckles served in a pool of gravy. The best part was the crispy skin, but the juicy slabs of meat were also as good. Weisswurst or Munich-style poached veal & pork sausage placed in very hot water. Unlike most German sausages its color is white and the texture is smooth. Best paired with traditional sweet mustard. A must try! Live cooking stations by no-less than Okada’s award-winning chefs. Fresh off the grill pork sausages are the best! Steckerlfisch or grilled mackerel—very fatty and grilled to perfection. I had two servings of this. A must try! Bavarian meat loaf with potato salad. To end the meal, try the classic desserts like the apple strudel with vanilla sauce and kaiserschmarn—a dish made of shredded rum raisin pancakes with berry compote and vanilla sauce. The weeklong celebration starts on Sept 23-28, 2019 from 7pm to 1am. Tickets are at priced Php 4,500 for regular access and Php 10,000 for VIP access.
