7-11's Chef Creations featuring Premium Filipino Food by Chef Claude Tayag

If there is one event that I became so excited about, it will be this one. Do you remember those earlier days of our childhood when we didn't want or couldn't sleep even if we tried? Yup, it was just pure excitement that resulted to our restlessness, and that's how I felt when I got the invite.

A Not-So-Popular Kid with his Excitement
The reason why I got excited was because of two main things. First, I really love Filipino food and the way they are going to make it readily available overjoyed me. Second, the launching will take place in Pampanga home of the great cooks!
7 Eleven's Chef Creations - Affordable yet Premium Filipino Food
Latest from one of the largest convenience store chain, 7 Eleven - Chef Creations
What was this event all about?
Held in the beautiful home turned restaurant of Chef Claude Tayag and his wife called Bale Dutung, 7 Eleven gave a sneak peek of the soon-to-be launched Chef Creations! This is a new collection (containing 3 varieties) of authentic Filipino meals!

More than that, every meal contains a good portion of the viand and a generous serving of rice perfect for the typical Filipino appetite.There will be 3 varieties of Chef Creations to choose from, namely:
  1. Pulled Pork with Adobo Dip || P95
  2. Pork Sinigang sa Kamias || P75
  3. Pakbet with Bagnet || P89
Alright, so let's explore each of them!

Pulled Pork with Adobo Dip || P95
This is not the ordinary Adobo that you encounter daily everywhere. This twice cooked dish has all the oomph to satisfy your craving

The label is telling the truth! It was really not your ordinary Pork Adobo!  

This Pulled Pork with Adobo Dip was notably tender and savory (malinamnam) at the same time. The marination process as well as the double-cooking made all the flavors seep into the meat fibers resulting to a very fine taste. Although it is already good on its own, you may still want to dip the meat into the seasoned sauce for more distinct tang.

Pork Sinigang sa Kamias || P75 
Slow-cooked to extract the tastiest broth. Soured with real fresh kamias and served with gabi and kangkong with ample soup to keep you warm and satisfied

The Pork Sinigang with a bountiful amount of meat and veggy serving
This Sinigang had a  really suave taste that was noticeably free of preservatives or anything unnatural. In fact, it was one of the greatest sinigang I've tasted so far! The meat was tender and soft, and the kangkong was crunchy telling me it was indeed fresh. On top of all, this one just costs P75! Wow! I felt like a true winner here!

For veggy lovers, you will definitely adore the pakbet with all its generous serving. As for the taste, the home-made bagoong blended well (i.e. didn't overpower) with the greens making things just light! Plus, the ampalaya used wasn't bitter as it appeared, which definitely was a major plus!

Note: Chef Claude Tayag claims this as the healthiest among the 3 in the Chef Creations.

Is it considerably fresh? 
7-11 claims to have state-of-the-art commissary where they prepare the food, so right on the spot, we can be ensured of great quality. Accordingly, they have forecasted the demand in each store, so they promise to order on time to make sure that food is fresh from the commissary. In this way, 7-11 is giving us a guarantee about the quality and freshness of the Chef Creations.

Wrapping things up
I feel strongly about the success of the creations because I believe it is something new and something good at the same time! In fact, in case I get home, and I find nothing to eat, I might go to 7-11 (which is very near our place) and have the Pork Sinigang, my most favorite among the three!
