For the second consecutive year, Foodgasm, the biggest food-tasting in the metro, will be held at Maginhawa Street, a three-kilometer gastronomic hotspot for foodies in Quezon City.
The October 15 event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., is co-sponsored by the University of the Philippines Economics Society and Barangay Sikatuna Village.
Guests have to purchase a ticket for P250 (P200 for pre-selling) that will allow them to try dishes from all participating concessionaires and rate these using their Foodgasm “passport” booklet.
During last year’s Foodgasm, one of the restaurants that stood out was Friuli Trattoria, an Italian restaurant that serves authentic pizza and pasta at affordable prices. The restaurant, which allows guests to order two flavors in one pizza, made it to the “Top 20 restaurants that won 2015” list of The Booky Report.
Its best sellers include the Viva Venezia pizza topped with lean ground beef, olives, mushrooms, green bell peppers and onions and the Hot Sausage and Pepper pizza with Italian sausage, bell peppers, tomatoes, cheeses and extra hot pizza sauce.
Foodgasm, which is now on its seventh year, has become a yearly tradition for many food lovers.
Aside from the food-tasting competition, this year’s second stint in Maginhawa will also feature a food-eating contest, a shop-’til-you-drop bazaar and a mini-concert.
