Best Food Forward 2012: It's back with a travel flair (Spoiler Alert)

Due to the success of Best Food Forward last year, it is now back with a travel flair to boot.  Best Food Forward will be held at the NBC Tent, Bonifacio Global City on March 24-25, 2012 10am to 8 pm.

I was fortunate enough to be invited by Nuffnang in a pre-event of the Best Food Forward.  So, here's my share of spoilers!

What I Had

fruit garden
The Fruit Garden's Mango Durian Jam 
The Mango Durian Jam had the perfect blending of Mango and Durian.  It was not too sweet unlike the commercialized jam.  It was actually fruity in taste and I loved that!  I intend to grab a bottle of  The Fruit Garden's jam for our household soon.  I'm sure my family will enjoy it.

Simply Pie's Mushroom and Sour Cream Quiche and Spinach, Feta and Sundried TOmato Quiche (Top from Left to Right)
Quantum Cafe's Four Cheese Pizza and Vegetarian Pizza (Bottom from Left to Right)
Quantum Cafe's Four Cheese Pizza is amazingly delicious!  The Vegetarian Pizza was worth trying for me since it's the first time I've encounter a pizza like that.  But, I found the garlic too overwhelming.  I liked that their pizza crust is made of whole wheat which is healthy and high in fiber. =)

crunchy belly
Carlo's Kitchen's Crunchy Belly
I find the Crunchy Belly sinfully irresistible every time. =)

angus beef kebab
Skew U Skews and Sizzlers Angus Beef Kebab and Chicken Kebab with Biriani Rice
I was surpised with the tenderness of Skew U's Angus Beef Kebab and Chicken Kebab!  Don't miss this in the upcoming Best Food Forward.  The softness and the flavor is exactly how a kebab should be.

suman tsokolate
Choco ATBP's Suman at Tsokolate
Aside from the Suman at Tsokolate, I also tried the dark chocolate muffin which was moist and has a rich smooth bitter-sweet taste.  I also learned that the chocolate tablets I buy at the groceries are not capable of preserving the chocolates at their best quality.  Choco ATBP sells Sindikato de Cacao which is bottled pure cocoa paste.  Since its pure cocoa, it's even safe for diabetics to drink.  

Last but certainly not the least that I tried is Pint Ice Cream's Pistachio Ice Cream.  It was creamy and tasty that I could not stop munching on it.  Since the Pistachio Ice Cream was not too sweet or syrup-y like other ice creams, it was really addictive.  

Oops! Sorry for such a lengthy spoiler.  Let's not get ahead of ourselves.  I'm sure there will be more selections in the on March 24-25, 2012 so save the date and see you there! =)
