Before we proceed with the winners from Foodgasm 4 Craving 4 More, Foodamn PH voted for:
Expert's Choice - Ruby Red Kitchen
This potatoes pull-apart bread, I do know how they come up with it but the result are fantastic. Although monkey bread is not an original Filipino recipe but our love for pastries makes this heavenly bread smacked right to our taste buds. I'd asked Mr. Mario McDermott why "Monkey Bread?" The bread can be eaten the way monkey eats. I believe him so, back home once the bread was served in our table "should we sliced it?" Maybe not because the essence of being a monkey bread will not served its purpose. :) This is good, I love to have them on breakfast. Can you teach our local panaderos?
Most Innovative - Niku Niku
I breathe Japanese food (charot!) that's why when I saw Niku Niku prepping I said to myself I have to get bigger parts! LOL Good thing I brought my child along so in case she doesn't like she'll pass it on me but most probably not because she just loves anything with Nori :) The thing about Niku Niku there's this guy (I presumed his name was Niku?) who patiently explains the process, the ingredients with fishcake being pure fishcake compare to low class method. Impressive how he curates his product! He sells it well and deserves a prize for that!
Hunger Buster is the next best thing maybe because we have so much fascination with burgers, and that mini buns captures the heart of a hungry judge. In fairness the burgers are tender, juicy, cheesy and is worth buying if I were to choose what to buy from Foodgasm.
The last food that captures my delight was that from Babci Kuchnia's Polish Peirogi. It's actually a steamed dumpling and then fried, sauced. I tasted the cheese rum raisin with sweet filling. Yeah it looks ordinary but then I said there something special the way they cook it. This one also deserves an award if given a chance. I'm looking forward to BK's savoury fillings (potato onion, cheese/beef veggies and cheese / beef and sauerkraut).
Foodgasm 3 Champion - Hunger Buster
Hunger Buster the mini and yet tasteful burgers from Foodgasm 4. Prepared closely by the handsome hands, they captured the diners with delight and gusto.
Expert's Choice Award - Ruby Red Kitchen's Original Cinnamon Monkey Bread and Parmesan Herb Monkey Bread
People's Choice Award - Niku Niku's Crabstick wrapped in Fishcake
Most Innovative Award - Country Fries (not in picture)Detailed blog about Foodgam 4 can be access here - http://www.foodamn.com/2014/03/foodamn-ph-foodgasm-4-participants.html
And wait! As I said earlier my plus one for Foodgasm event is my 7-year old child and here's her take for the Top 3 Choice (kid's version LOL)
#1 Mau's Cupcake Cafe - Yema filled Crinkle Sandwich
#2 Hunger Buster - Dying Burger
#3 Buenavi Food & Beverage - Pescado Gourmet Tuyo
Hmmm she said her #1 was the crinkle sandwich because "Kuya gave me before the start of food tasting." So I said very good si kuya when it comes to marketing sales. :) But what about the Baking Bad's Bacon Cookies those kuya's from there gave you extra cookies for being cute and "takaw" :)
For Hunger Buster, she finished the whole serving. Some food items I can't pushed her to taste coz she sways away, "hindi nya yata type!" Surprisingly included to her Top 3 was the only pasta dish of the night. Imagine sya pa namili nun! Yun daw pasta! So adorable, maybe because I taught her how to cook actual spaghetti, hence she appreciates it more.
