The UP Economics Society and Barangay Teachers Village East held Foodgasm Goes to Maginhawa along a closed strip of the Maginhawa Street.

The event aims to highlight various food businesses whereby 40 Foodgasm participants were given the chance to showcase a few of their best bite-sized dishes on the Food Tasting Competition judged by 16 food bloggers, 4 chef judges, and the event attendees. The dishes vary from appetizers, breakfast meals, burgers, pastries, special beverages, desserts, and more.

We have selected our own Top Picks as well: Churros by Sancho, Hangovurger by Big B, Beef Kebab by Mandi Persian Grill and our top choice, the Honey Bagoong Wings by Griddle – juicy chicken meat with a really strong delicious zest. The flavor was so captivatingly strong that I reminisce its aroma with a smile on my face. The best part about this is, the dish is served while it is still hot.
