Festa del Vino Stop #1: Sauceria

I am no wine connoisseur but I am always fascinated by the elegance this drink adds to any meal. I normally have a glass or two of red wine whenever I indulge in a succulent piece of steak. But McKinley Hill’s Festa del Vino (Wine Festival) exposed me to other pairings and I loved it!

Hello, McKinley Hill!
This bustling area of Taguig is another gem waiting to be explored by foodies. With its numerous establishments offering mouthwatering dishes, you’ll never run out of options. I have to admit though, I am stuck with Nihonkai Tsukiji whenever I visit this place. But thanks to Megaworld Lifestlyle Malls team, I got to explore the other lovely restaurants around the area. 

Our first Festa del Vino food crawl stop was Sauceria, a quaint restaurant that serves comfort dishes such as chicken wings, sandwiches and pizza. During my visit, I was able to try its Char Siu or Roast Pork Pizza (PHP405) along with a glass of Barefoot Merlot’s Dark Berries. We were also given some pork and chicken skewers in classic and chipotle sauces.
The wine served to us came from California and I actually liked that it had light tones of berries and that it wasn’t very strong. It was odd though that I let out some sweat beads while gulping down my share of wine. Then again, it could be because the place was packed with bloggers trying to capture a nice shot of the wine and food served.
I enjoyed the flavorful char siu pizza which went really well with the wine we sampled. It was a beautiful blend of sweet mangoes and salty roast pork
I wasn’t able to try the skewers in chipotle sauce as everyone reacted that it was really spicy. I took the safer route for my tastebuds and took a chicken skewer in classic sauce. It was very tender and effortless to chew. 
I’d love to go back here for more of the char siu pizza and perhaps enjoy it with a glass of wine.

Make sure that you visit Sauceria (and other partner establishments) this week in order to score great deals on its wine pairings! Festa del Vino runs until October 9, 2016. 
P.S. They also have a Wine and Gondola promo bundles this weekend! Do drop by the Venice Grand Canal Mall if you want to have this romantic experience. 

Sauceria is located at Tuscany Estates, McKinley Hill, Taguig City.
