Yummy Eats 2012


I would like to start by thanking the Yummy Magazine team for organizing another successful Yummy Eats.  We had such a great time at the event, our tummies were stuffed and we left with happy and satisfied smiles on our faces.

Once again my camera decided to go bonkers today, I think I need to really think about replacing it, so I apologize I have no pictures to share but I assure everything looked and tasted delicious.  Some of my favorites are:

Chicken Delish  - I know there are plenty of double-fried chicken outlets these days, but Chicken Delish is now one of my favorites.  I like that they offer different types of sauces or should I say glaze.  We chose to have the sweet-chili and pinoy barbecue sauces which were both very flavorful, and the chicken wings were super duper crunchy.

Chuck's Grub - This is probably the best tasting fish and chips I have ever had.  The battered covered dory is crunchy on the outside but remains moist inside.  The fish was so flavorful you really do not need the dip anymore.  

Eat My GF -I have been a fan of this since I discovered them in Alabang Town Center, was so happy they were at the event so that many more people can discover the joys of eating garlic fries and virgin chips.  A lot of people were lining up for the fries and chips even though the Eat My GF booth was located in the area of the venue where it was extremely warm because it was not air-conditioned. I assure you this is really worth the unbearable heat and the long lines.

Pepita's Lechon -  Guys and Girls its lechon de leche so it will always be a winner, but what made this extra special is it was stuffed with truffle rice, so yummy.

Crunchy Belly - This is a favorite of mine, so happy to see them at the event.  I love their thin crunchy bacon like deep-fried liempo bits.  I know it is quite high in fat and cholesterol but every time I take that first bite it makes me forget about all of that and I am just happy to enjoy this guilty pleasure.

There were plenty of sweet treats too, but since I don't have much of a sweet tooth I left the sampling to the Little Ones because they love sweets.   Here are some of their favorites:

Cukay's -  these are super cute mini cupcakes that the Little Ones gobbled up really fast

Kate Bakes Manila -  the owner Kate was there and offered the Little Ones several sweet treats that they were happy to take.  They liked everything and they made sure that I got Kate's calling card so that I can order if ever they have cravings for her sweet treats. 

The Little Ones also sampled and enjoyed all the ice cream concessionaires - Fog City Creamery, Mochiko, Pinkerton Ice Cream, and Pint Homemade Ice Cream.   

If you have not gone to Yummy Eats 2012 you still have time they will be at the Rockwell Tent in Makati up to 9PM tonight.  So head on over there is plenty of yummy food, fun activities and even giveaways.

Again my congratulations and thanks to the Yummy Team.  So looking forward to Yummy Eats 2013 :)

Hi, Eileen!
I was there, too... we must've bumped into each other. :) Pepita's Lechon and Chicken Delish are two of my few favorites at the event as well.

I was there yesterday and I agree with a lot of your choices (truffle lechon was yummy!). I also liked the Crack Pie, too bad they were positioned in the hot tent so I couldn't stay too long to take photos.

Marie said...

CC said...

Waaah too bad I missed this. :( I love Mochiko and I'm always craving for it! Too bad it's availability is sorta limited here in Makati. I want to try Chicken Delish since it's the first thing you mentioned. I like Manang's Chicken, but only in events such as this. Their sauce is quite different in the malls. T_T
