Food Glorious Food

November 16, 2015
Awesome Food Fair

It is said that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. And in the case of bon vivant Anton Diaz – founder of the Philippines’ number one restaurant and travel blog, Our Awesome Planet, and co-founder of the city’s successful weekend night market, Mercato Centrale – that’s almost certainly true.

However, Diaz believes there’s a little more to it than that, arguing that not only men are easily seduced by food; women and children are prone to a little belt-loosening indulgence too. And that’s why he has launched the first ever Awesome Food Fair – to spread the love and fill the willing bellies of Filipino foodies across the Metro.

Presented in association with Ayala Malls, this bud-beguiling bazaar arrives just in time for the holiday season, which is no coincidence. According to Diaz the greatest gift one can give is – you guessed it – of the delectably dishy variety.

With that in mind, expect a veritable smorgasbord of epicurean offerings, from artisanal eats to innovative produce perfect for the gastronomist in your life. Whether you want to bequeath a familiar flave from a local province or a tasty treat from further afield, you’ll find something to please every palate.

And best yet, everything comes creatively wrapped – meaning you can avoid the usual yuletide wrestle with scissors and a roll of sticky tape. Tuck in!
