Last July, I had the chance to attend the Yummy Eats 2014 held at Metrotent in Ortigas. It was my first time to attend this food fair and I was really excited because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
There were already a lot of people at the venue at 10A.M., which was the scheduled opening of the gates and the booths. Upon registration, you get your wrist tag, passport, token (for Best Booth vote) and a tray which you could use for all the samples. There were 75 concessionaires participating this year, so your trays are sure to overflow even before you reach half of the fair.
For only Php250.00, we were able to sample a lot of different products. I did notice that cupcakes, salted caramel flavors and macarons are the three most prevalent themes during the fair. I enjoy eating sweets, although I was hoping for more variety to choose from.
There were several brands/ items which became instant personal favorites, like Pepito’s Pinoy Sorbet and their Sampalok sorbet,
Alchemy and their chocolate ganache macarons, The Butchery and their organic sausages, and Blue Toque and their delicious chocolate cake. Old favorites like Merry Moo and Theo and Philo were also there to share their goodies to the public.
I’m looking forward to the next Yummy Eats fair, but I hope the venue for the next one will be more spacious so that attendees can navigate the area more comfortably. It was, in my opinion, the biggest challenge we encountered while we were there. We would’ve stayed longer if the crowd wasn’t making it difficult to breathe. :p
