World Street Food Congress 2016: A 15-hour Culinary Adventure
It was a whole day filled with fun, friendship
and gastronomic delights as the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB), the Department
of Tourism (DOT), Makansutra and Ayala Malls launched the World Street Food
Congress (WSFC) 2016 via a 15-hour food frenzy safari.
WSFC is an international culinary affair
and will be held in the Philippines for the first time after being hosted by
Singapore for the past two years. The five day event will take place at
Bonifacio Global City (BGC) from 20-24 April 2016 and will feature the World
Street Food Dialogue, World Street Food Jamboree, and World Street Food Awards.
Registration for the World Street Food Dialogue is done online at www.wsfcongress.com.
Among those who participated in the food
tour were Makansutra’s KF Seetoh, Indonesia’s culinary ambassador Chef William
Wongso, Our Awesome Planet’s Anton Diaz, Chef Sau del Rosario, RJ Ledesma of
Mercato Centrale and Singapore’s DJ Rosalyn Lee.
The street food safari kicked off at
7:00 AM at BGC then proceeded to food stops at Pampanga, Binondo and back to
BGC at around 10:00 PM. The itinerary included Recovery Food, Everybody’s Cafe,
Aling Lucing’s Sisig, Cafe Fleur, Sarsa Kitchen + Bar and Mercato Centrale
Night Market. Traditional favorites such as tapsilog, sisig, kare-kare, lumpia
and lechon were among the numerous iconic Filipino dishes the participants
sampled during the jam-packed trip.
“We are very excited that the
Philippines will be hosting the WSFC 2016.This will once again highlight our
country as one of the best culinary destinations in the world, and it is an
opportunity for us to share to the global audience the richness and
contemporary edge of Filipino gastronomy,” shares TPB COO Domingo Ramon C.
Considered as Philippine Food Month, April
is packed with other major culinary events such as the Madrid Fusión Manila
2016, the biggest and most important gastronomic
event in Asia in the 21st century; and Flavors of the
Philippines, a month-long food extravaganza that showcases the unique tastes of
