 Where else can you try a number of dishes for just 550Php? It's like a tasting buffet and you get to rate each one of them. That's the concept behind the ULTIMATE TASTE TEST. It's like a number of vendors and home cooks gather together to showcase their dishes and other tasty stuff.
For this year, the ULTIMATE TASTE TEST PRO edition was held in Glorietta on September 2-3, 2017. As many as 30 stalls were set up. Starting 11am, foodies could enter and try out each of the dishes they serve in tasting portion for just Php 550. At around 5pm, each stall has the chance to sell their dishes full size to the public as well. Here are a few of the must try dishes.
Go for CHARLIE'S PRITCHON. A whole pig is deep fried and prepared ala pecking duck. Charlie's has been the forefront of this idea since the early 2000's. You could pair this dish with a number of San Miguel premium beers available at the venue.
 This time around, Charlie's prepared flavored wraps to try out. Be sure to try each one of them and put the sauce based on your liking.
 A rich yet savory dish that one might enjoy would be from CONNOR'S CHICKEN and WAFFLES. Deep fried chicken bits are thrown on top of waffles and drizzled with 3 types of sauces giving it a unique flavor. I was pretty impressed with the set up granted this was their first time going at it.
 The flat bread from PIZZA GRIGLIATA MANILA was something unusual. The crust is really thin and the toppings created perfect for the dish. One could try out the margherita or even the one with prosciutto.
 Something different would be the gyozas from KIRUNCH served with laksa ramen, these babies are of different flavors that would make them stand out.
 A personal favorite though would be JAM FOODS newest creation. The BACON TOCINO. The meat is imported from France and is cured right here at home. It's like Bakwa but it gives off a bit more of that Filipino Flavor. This would go well with Jam Foods tapa and of course garlic rice and egg.
There are a lot more dishes to try at the ULTIMATE TASTE TEST. Broken Oven's Sisig and Truffle balls were pretty good. Home grown comfort food from AUNTIE MAY'S (get more of the Salpicao) were also perfect to partner with rice. A foodie favorite such as the Satay and the Beef Rendang from BAKMI NONYA is a must try as well. Chips and unorthodox baos from DON BAO in Kapitolyo.
There was even a refreshing BLENDED FRUITS and HERBS that gave interesting juice mixes to try over and over again.  Gawad Kalinga was well represented with their PUTO which I personally liked.

I wish all of these establishments luck and hope that the foodie public get to enjoy everything that they offer. This year is definitely the Best Eddition of UTT.
