Getting in on the Secret: Pinoy Eats World
We do love those dinners out. I mean this is Manila, right? If we happen to have rubbed elbows while on a food trip through Greenbelt or Fort or wherever the hottest new place is, it wouldn’t surprise me at all.
But sometimes, it pays to steer clear of the usual routine. Which is exactly what I did last week when I decided to invade Manila’s underground world of secret suppers. Ok, maybe secret is too strong a word. I’ve heard enough about Pinoy Eats World and their mysterious guerrilla dinners to know that I wanted to try the experience.
And it really is one PEW’s business is pretty much turning your 7-course meal into a major production. The dinner I was invited to was certainly no exception.
Check out The menu conceptualized in honor of dinner host, Meralco.
This kind of humor basically sets the tone for the entire evening.
Ready to serve? Here we go!
The spread includes surprise favorites and some very memorable mashed potatoes. (Hover over each photo for one-line reviews).
A couple of contests to amuse a group already entertained…
Two lucky people at guessing games actually came home with induction cookers!
Plus the requisite appearance of a beauty queen to make things more interesting.
Shamcey Supsup was there to eat, but more importantly to carry out her official duties as a Meralco Ambassador of Light for its bright ideas campaign.
I don’t think I’ve had a dinner as interesting as this one in a long time. Big thanks to Meralco for the invite, and for collaborating with PEW to create such a fun get-together. My first one, by the way, that’s allowed me to meet a whole bunch of other bloggers that do the same things we do at LMT:)
