Around 70 foodies, bloggers, and critics gathered at Bonifacio High Street for the BGC Passion Fest Food Tour on May 1. We were to go around Bonifacio Global City and sample the food of seven of BGC’s top food shops.
The tour started at Serendra, home to fine dining, shopping, and some of the best residences in BGC.
The park-like setting is a great place to begin our adventure. (Why I suddenly imagined playing “Crisis Zone” is beyond me, but I digress.)
Choco Cream Pie (Belgian chocolate cream in Oreo crust and topped with whipped cream and Oreo bits),
and Vanilla Sunshine (a classic yellow cupcake topped with vanilla butter cream).
My personal favorite was the Melt In Your Mouth Flourless Chocolate Cupcake, which was so soft to the palate and velvety too. The chocolate was not so sweet, but the cupcake base gives a hint of richness in it.
The Red Velvet Vixen has a sugary taste to it, while the Vanilla Sunshine’s flavor was more subtle. The Choco Cream Pie was delicious through and through. The Chocolate Overload? It’s so mouth-watering and chocolatey, it leaves a giddy feeling similar to falling in love, or having love-induced diabetes.
I heard from Ivan Man Dy that the Red Velvet Vixen is also called the Red Cross Cupcake, simply because part of Sonja’s sales from the cupcake goes to the Philippine National Red Cross. How’s that for a good cause?
Up next: The second food stop! Still craving for more desserts?!
