What to Prepare Yourself For
Food Congress 2017
If you’ve been keeping up with the news involving the local food scene, you’d know that the annual World Street Food Congress has already begun. Organized by Makasutra and presented by the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, this five-day gastronomic event that commenced on May 31, Wednesday has so far been treating its guests to the satisfying must-eat street food of various places across the globe.
WSFC is only running until June 4, Sunday so if you’re planning on heading to SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds to get a taste of different cultures, here’s what you should know:
There are 28 food stalls to visit
There will be pop-up stalls of restaurants from across the world, six of which are from the Philippines while the rest are from USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, Mexico and more.
Well-known and Michelin-starred chefs are attending
WSFC 2017 has also invited a star-studded lineup of guest speakers including Anthony Bourdain, Chef Malcolm Lee of Candlenut in Singapore, and Chef Claude Tayag of Bale Datung in Pampanga. Although their talks during the Dialogues session of the congress are already over, there are chances that you might still run into them this weekend!
You can watch live cooking demonstrations by chefs
Speaking of well-known chefs, you can witness them and other participating chefs prepare their dishes in front of you at the outdoor food demo kitchen!
There’s a San Miguel Beer Park to quench your thirst
When there’s street food, there’s got to be ice cold beers. Say cheers to the gastronomic weekend at the San Miguel Beer Park!
