I love going to museums and being immersed in historical artifacts and beautiful art pieces. But my crazy food blogging schedule always get in the way. But an event this coming Friday gives me no excuse to skip art appreciation day.
Gavel & Block, Salcedo Auctions' new subsidiary, brings together art and food as it collaborates with the premium weekend market, The Gourmand Market. And we got a sneak peek of what to expect this coming weekend at Green Sun.
I first tried Monkeyspeak Coffee's coffee latte with mild beans.
Though it was good, it was a bit too weak for my liking. I'll definitely try a stronger brew next time.
The Lasagna Cups were pretty good. The bite size treats make it great for an event like Gavel & Block. And if you think that these cheesy goodies are too small, you'd surely think twice after one bite. Each cup is oozing with flavor that a few cups would be enough to satisfy your cravings.
It was love at first bite with Ka Poke's fresh salmon and tuna poke shots. Well, they will be serving it in bowls during the event with rice or salad at PHP200. This would be perfect for those looking for a heavy meal while appreciating art.
I also sampled some salted egg and adobo pot stickers and liked it too.
If I were to choose between the two, I'd go with adobo.
Oh, and that reminds me, the salted egg chips of Crackle Chips were great!
I got so curious with the localized xiao long bao. Just when I thought Paradise Dynasty offers extensive flavors, I discovered xiao long bao in tinola, bulalo, leche flan and tablea flavors. And each one tasted just like it!
Just make sure to eat it fast for tinola and bulalo as the soup tends to thicken when kept waiting.
For health conscious foodies, there's also Just Coco to quench your thirst.
But I'm not counting calories so I went with wine, iced tea and... Carte D'or.
I was so curious with pistachio as everyone was raving about it. And true enough, it was good! From texture to flavor, you'd think that its price per pint is a steal!
But my favorite was double dark chocolate. It was stellar! I also liked that it was rather chunky.
Other two flavors available were hazelnut and salted caramel.
I can't wait for Friday and indulge in more awesome finds from The Gourmand Market while admiring the works of BenCab, Mauro Santos, Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso.
