BGC Eats 2014: Something's Cooking at Bonifacio Global City


Wazzup Pilipinas!

I got a tasty invite to the 2nd run of a culinary tour within a continuously developing but balanced mixed-use district of residential, office, and commercial establishments with more than 240-hectare of urban development.

They say the Bonifacio Global City BGC EATS citywide food tour was cooked up by Passionate Minds for passionate Stomachs. I may have to agree, as we all experienced a very creative and scientific way of  exploring the sights. There was Science in everywhere that we went to.

From the first stop at Gustare kitchen or commissary where their elite customers can also dine on not just sweet treats like the Strawberry Lemon juice, Canonigo w/ custard sauce, Calamansi sans rival but also on uniwue food like the Salabat cookies, the shamporado cookies, and the Santol Bagoong.

The second destination we visited was another delightful feast. Prost German pub was a great choice to dine on splendid sausages of all kinds - from the lengthy to the most stout! I heard there were also a lot of kinds of beers served especially during night time while watching your favorite sports on TV.

Our third and last stop was at the Mind Museum where everyone were treated to the weird stuff. Imagine biting on a jelly added with a whole locust prepared by Adobo Queen Chef Nancy Reyes Lumen, eating earthworms hidden within the banana bread prepared by Chefs Erik Capaque and Claudette Uy, trying out the milk and ice cream made from nuts, tasting the seaweed and cassava starch of Kyle Imao of Kyle's Lab, and feasting on soy and moringa treats, otherwise known as malunggay, prepared by tukayo Chef Sau Del Rosario.

Incidentally, there's going to be an event called Future Feast to be held at the Mind Museum on July 26, 2014 Saturday from 12 noon to 7 pm.
