The Ultimate Taste Test 2017 - List of 30+ Food Vendors

The Ultimate Taste Test (UTT) Pro Edition 2017 was recently held on September 2 and 3 of Glorietta Activity Center, Palm Drive. More than 30 home-based food vendors participated in this year's UTT, and foodies started to rave about how this could be the best UTT so far. Let's take a look!

How does UTT works? 
Foodies who like to try unique and interesting dishes are invited to sample all the food offered by the vendors. They are given a passport to have an access to the food-tasting event. The passport also serves as a scoreboard to provide insights over the sampled dishes (rating scale of 1-5, with 5 being the highest).
