Our last weekend could have never been any better. My youngest daughter and I bechanced this primeval take of street eating, one that is worth earmarking by better foodies, last Saturday. Thanks btw, to Spanky Enriquez of Juice.ph for inviting me and putting me in the VIP list with my daughter.
Valero Eat St. was presented by Ampers and Collective, Mothership F&B, The Fat Kid Inside, Robinson’s Signa Designer Residences, and McCormick Philippines with partners Globe Tattoo Platinum and Oh Happy Day. Valero Eat Street’s media partners are ACTIVshow, Appetite Magazine, Manila Eat Up, ClickTheCity.com, WhenInManila.com, and Juice.ph.
Not a moment too soon, my daughter found herself in the midst of good food that are picture perfect and I have to say worth every penny. Food purveyors, artisans and restaurants collaborated and popped up with all their kitchen wits to serve delectable and above the ordinary food offerings.

I love how they have made the floor plan into a spacious living space best for yuppies working around or for small start up families. My daughter even recognized Kenneth Cobonpue, Royal Pineda and Budji Layug the poster own in one of the showrooms. Apparently, these renowned names in arts and architecture have joined forces to design Makati's luxurious residential property as living works of art.
Most of the furniture used in the showrooms are pieces made and design by Kenneth Cobonpue.tall
We didn't spend much time on the rooms as we were there for the food, so off we went down and made the tour from the lobby to the event venue really, really quick as my Danica was insisting to have a tall glass of Starbucks frap.
Our first pit stop was at Cy's cookie-loco table set up. Cy Ynares is the genius behind The Bald Baker, a pastry home-bakeshop that whipped up crazy yet uber-licious cookie varieties. I was glad to see him there as I've been meaning to try his banana cake.
A couple of booths away from The Bald Baker's was Manila Eat Up's. Too bad I wasn't able to meet the "Lady" behind Boqueria, whom I had bought some pieces from.
Manila Eat Up was one of the media partners of the event and they offered intimate workshops for the foodies who might want to enhance their food styling and mobile photography. Boqueria stuff and linens provided by Townes Fabric were ready to help members of Manila Eat Up do that.
So, I did the honor of taking some photos of the food offered at the Valero Eat Street event.
