FOODGASM III List of Food Businesses || Mercato Centrale

Foodgasm III Collection of Food Buisnesses

Just before we welcomed September 2013, UP Economics Society held its awesome Foodgasm fund-raising activity in Mercato Centrale, BGC. This year's the third time they held this event which had the official title of Foodgasm III - Triple the Flavor!

I was fortunate enough to be invited as a food-blogger-judge, and so here I am sharing my fantastic experience with you! Anyway, part of this blog will focus on my experience in general, but the bulk of this post will be the presentation of the food businesses (which you may click on to view a separate blog post about it).

The Event - Foodgasm III: Triple the Flavor!

I was able to arrive their 5 minutes after 6:00 pm when everyone was still trying to get everything set. The official briefing happened around 6:25 pm. Afterwards, we were given the opportunity to take photos of the food! 

Finally, I was given the full right to take photos, unlike in other restaurants (especially those offering buffets) where I needed to sneakily take some shots. At 7:00 pm, they began the feast, and let the participants enter the venue. This was how it looked like after the participants came in - a typical Mercato scene, if you'll ask me to describe it:

Before I end this blog post, I want to share with photo. This event for me is memorable, since it was my first time to be invited in an event. Although, this may not be entirely considered as something big, this small step is still made me an inch closer to being a successful food blogger!
