Tasting the World with the Appetite Restaurant Festival

In celebration of Appetite’s 7th Anniversary this October, Appetite Magazine brings back the most delicious event of the year—the Appetite Restaurant Festival 2011!  Together with Shangri-La Plaza and MasterCard, Appetite presented the launching last October 13 at the Atrium of Shangri La Plaza.  The Festival is  a unique dining experience where you can let your taste buds travel all over the world, all in one fabulous place.   Foodies  converged to  indulge in international cuisines from different restaurants.
The stellar reputation of  Appetite Magazine have magnificently  carried out a launching that was grand to the point that I could almost go in food coma, even without having to sample all of it.   Yep, it was too magnanimous for me to handle.   I think I just had three rounds, with about just 5 of the different participants out of the 13.

Each restaurant's spot served as a fascinating vignette and all-together they weave the foodies through a world where eating is a spectacular matter, where common food is a thing of the past and where some Ginny (in a bottle) could have magically grant any dining pleasure.    Let me clearly explain this to you in pictures.

Since 2004, Appetite Magazine has been giving its readers the most delicious experience in making and sharing food. Packed with easy, doable and excellent recipes, delectable dining stories and other unique features, it continues to allow people to indulge in their passion for food. The magazine pioneered their first restaurant festival in 2007 called The Tasting Room to treat readers and fellow friends to special degustation menus, inspired by food festivals in New York and London. This year’s Appetite Restaurant Festival is better than ever, as the magazine celebrates a great year with a new editorial board (headed by editor-in-chief Nina Daza-Puyat), a Philippine Webby Award for their website and a nomination for Best Family-Oriented Magazine by the Catholic Mass Media Awards. So many reasons to celebrate, and so much Appetite menus to be enjoyed in the Appetite Restaurant Festival. 
From October 14 to November 30, 2011, participating restaurants at Shangri-La Plaza will offer specially-created Appetite Menus with an appetizer, entrées and dessert all for under P1000! Check out all the appetizing and mouth-watering meals carefully put together by Café Provencal, Claw Daddy, Cravings, Crustasia, Cyma, C2, Green Tomato, Lemongrass, Pages Deli, Pepper Lunch, Pho Hoa, Secret Recipe and Sing Hainanese Chicken!
