After a round of drinks in Draft Rockwell, my friends and I went to Cucina Andare, the first food truck market in the Philippines at the Glorietta Open Park. It opened yesterday, December 14, from 4pm - 3am and will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Chicken Shawarma Plate (P150)
The first thing we tried was the Chicken Shawarma Plate from Shawarma Bros. Actually one of my friend ordered it and we just took a bite. The spices are a little bit overpowering at first and leaves a strong after taste of curry but it’s really good that you want to eat more.
C+W Sandwich (Half - P80)
Waffle Bites (P80)
The next thing we tried were the C+W Sandwich and the Waffle Bites from Chicken+Waffle Haus. The sandwich was really good but I wish that the waffles are made fresh. The Korean vendor who was preparing the dish for me is drunk but he’s the goofy kind of drunk so it’s all good. The sandwich is kinda messy to eat because the coleslaw falls whenever you pick up the sandwich. The Waffle Bites on the other hand was also good but the chocolate syrup was too sweet.
Puto Bumbong, Merry Moo Ice Cream, and a Saksi news segment about Cucina Andare after the cut.
One day, I was going through my contacts in YM and I saw the status of my brother that says “wag maging dayuhan sa sariling ice cream”. I got curious and I asked him what’s up with the status. He forwarded this commercial to me.
You see, we don’t have a TV in our place. So I’m not really up to date with the current commercials. Actually, we’re always looking forward to see the new commercials when we go home to Olongapo and watch TV.
Anyway, I just thought that this commercial was a great way to market the local products. The flavors are Ube Keso (Baguio), Tsokolate Tablea, Coffee Crumble, (Batangas), Mangoes & Cream (Guimaras), Macapuno Langka, and Macapuno Banana (Laguna). I would really like to try the Coffee Crumble flavor since I’m a coffee lover.
How about you? What would you like to try from those flavors?
