Sabroso’s Native Lechon

ULTIMATE TASTE TEST DISCOVERIES (Last of the Series) Having lechon in the Ultimate Taste Test was a very good idea. One whole native lechon was served by Sabroso Lechon, which got a rating of 3.6 out of 5.0. Most people liked it because of its crispy skin and flavorful meat (which was a bit salty) … Continue reading Sabroso’s Native Lechon

Sans Rival by Star Reyes

Personally, I didn’t notice any difference. Most of the people in the Ultimate Taste Test liked it and it got a rating of 3.6 out of 5.0. It was a bit too sweet and the tasting portions were a bit too big for people to enjoy. The most important thing, my wife (who is a sans rival-monster) loves both the Sans Rival and Silvannas.

The Kefir Culture by Jeren

Kefir is starting to become a buzzword in the Healthy Circle. “It is cultured, enzyme-rich, and filled with micro-organisms that help balance your ‘inner ecosystem’. It is 100% probiotic and supplies the body with complete protein, essential minerals, and valuable B vitamins.” Kefir Power, promoted by Cory Quirino, was the first one to offer Kefir in the local market and then Kefir Culture by Jeren Cabral from the Healthy Store, Arama in Serendra.

The Best Fresh Milk and Yogurt in the Philippines?

Rizal Dairy Farms produces the best fresh milk products and fresh yogurts in the Philippines. Its greek yogurt has a cult following in the foodie circle. I love their plain yogurts with Mango or Strawberry because of the rich and creamy consistency. Best of all, they are locally produced in the Philippines!

Bangga’s Special Bagoong

Even before the UTT Event, we were already enjoying Bangga’s special bagoong. It is different because the first impression is that it is sweet. But it has a lingering salty taste at the back of your mouth and is highlighted by chili spikes in the end. You can actually eat the bagoong on its own and it is quite addicting. We find it a perfect companion to an extremely sour green mango. It can also make simple rice into something you can finish even without other ulam (dishes).

PIGOUT Quick Meal Packs

I love the concept of lutong-bahay dishes in a clean, hygienic package that you can store for months and cook in just 5 minutes.
PIGOUT Food Corp is looking for dealers/ distributors who can sell it to the right target market.

Bakes Homemade Granola and Bread Pudding

I love the homemade granola with the different textures of fruits, nuts and chocolate chips. Instead of junk food, you can munch on this healthier alternative (you can specify to have the chocolate removed if you like).
The bread pudding seems ordinary but it is made extraordinary by its wicked sauce — using combinations of liquor, caramel, and custard. You have to try it one of these days.

Mira Angeles Dips and Dressings

After the 4.6 rating of Dulcelin Gourmet in the Ultimate Taste Test, Mira Angeles Dips and Dressings was a distant second at 3.7 out of 5.0. One taste tester commented, “I think the taste is subtle, maybe because everything is homemade… price is reasonable. It’s good, hindi addicting.” Personally, I like the dense Herbed Cream Cheese balanced with the taste of Sundried tomatoes. Try the homemade Cheese Pimiento for a nostalgic trip to your childhood days. For a different kind of salad dressing, try Mira’s Strawberry Vinaigrette, which most people commented on as healthy and yummy.

Ultimate Taste Test Event

Thanks to all those who attended the 1st Ultimate Taste Test Event! Overall, it was a success because it was rated 4.3 in the survey between “4 rating- I Love It!” and “5 rating – Awesome! I would recommend it!” We also learned a lot from this experimental event on what people like about it and how we can improve it further. And yes, we are organizing another one soon in August/ Early September. 🙂 (Please contact Rache if you want to participate in the next event —
