When Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), the Department of Tourism (DOT), Makansutra restaurant and Ayala Malls team up to launch the World Street Food Congress (WSFC) 2016, the result was a 15-hour food safari frenzy.
Everything kicked off early at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, and then proceeded to food stops at Pampanga, Binondo and back to BGC in the evening. The itinerary included Recovery Food, Everybody’s Cafe, Aling Lucing’s Sisig, Cafe Fleur, Sarsa Kitchen + Bar and Mercato Centrale Night Market. While traditional favorites like tapsilog, sisig, kare-kare, lumpia and lechon were among the numerous iconic Filipino dishes the participants sampled during the jam-packed trip.
Among those who participated in the food tour were Makansutra’s KF Seetoh, Indonesia’s culinary ambassador Chef William Wongso, Our Awesome Planet’s Anton Diaz, Chef Sau del Rosario, RJ Ledesma of Mercato Centrale and Singapore’s DJ Rosalyn Lee.
Happening from April 20 to 24 at the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig, WSFC is an international culinary affair hosted by Singapore for two consecutive years. Besides the congress, it will also stage a food dialogue, food jamboree, and food awards.
