Top 10 picks at Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test (a.k.a. UTT10)!

Last Sept. 15, I went to check out Ultimate Taste Test Rockwell, also known as Ultimate Taste Test 10. My date for the day was my daughter. 😀

Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test

Like me, she was given her own tray for the food samples, a pen, and a score sheet… hehe! I usually go alone because my hubby and kids can get impatient but this year, my daughter is turning 8 so I figured she’s now old enough to appreciate the event. We were there by opening time, which was 11am. I like being early to avoid the crowd plus it’s a lot easier to get food samples. The following picks were determined by both my daughter and I and are listed in no particular order:

Aligue Rice by Kusina Reyes at Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test
#1 Aligue Rice by Kusina Reyes

This was the second food sample my daughter and I tried and wow, we were blown away by how yummy it was! I thought it was paella but it’s not. It’s very tasty and flavorful… I can’t explain it!

My daughter polished off her serving in a jiffy. She doesn’t like green peas but she ate them all with Kusina Reyes’ Aligue Rice! I’m so amazed! For orders and inquiries contact Kusina Reyes at 0926-7151152 or 466-2716.

Masatami Shave Ice at Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test
#2 Masatami Shave Ice
I blogged about Masatami Shave Ice in Robinsons Galleria some time ago. For this event however, we got to try something we haven’t had before.

Presenting… Swiss Cheese flavored Masatami Shave Ice! My friend and fellow blogger Mymomfriday had been raving about this so yeah, it was a good chance to try it out at last. It tastes like frozen cream cheese… yum! I can’t wait for Masatami Shave Ice’s Robinsons Magnolia branch to open, hehe!

Maria's Ilocos Empanada at Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test
#3 Maria’s Ilocos Empanada
I have fond memories of eating delicious Ilokano empanada from last year’s Ultimate Taste Test and so I wasn’t going to miss trying this. The empanada are freshly made onsite, it was actually kind of fun to watch.

Each attendee gets one big piece each. I actually forgot to get the dipping sauce but it didn’t matter because it was so yummy! They put fried eggs and cheese inside along with the veggies and ground Ilocos longganisa filling! It’s served hot and crisp too. Yum! Best empanada ever. My daughter wolfed it all down and she’s usually quite picky with food. Call 806-9357 for inquiries.

Mama Lou's Panzarotti at Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test
#4 Mama Lou’s Panzarotti
My daughter loved these pizza-like dumplings called panzarotti. The variant we tried was filled with tomato sauce, ham, and cheese. Tasty and appealing to kids especially! Call 519-1977 or 0917-834MAMA (6262) for inquiries.
Carlo's Kitchen Crunchy Belly at Rockwell's Ultimate Taste Test
#5 Carlo’s Kitchen Crunchy Belly

My daughter didn’t want to taste this because she thought it looked hard to bite but I loved these delicously crunchy chicharon-ish slices of pork belly served with vinegar on the side. For inquiries, call or text 0927-3062738.
