We had fun attending the launch of SM Hypermarket Street Food Festival 2018 in the Mall of Asia last August 24. For those not familiar, this is the biggest street food festival in the indoor setting and we like this because we not only get to sample truly Pinoy culinary delights but we also get great discounts and freebies from top brands participating. Highly recommended to all budget-conscious moms and shoppers out there who want to get value for their money.
SM Street Food Fest has since done the rounds in different locations, namely SM City Clark on September 1-2, SM City Baliwag on September 15-16, and SM City Fairview on September 29-30. The festival will unravel in SM Center Pulilan on October 12-14, before the grand finale on November 2-3, to be held again at SM Mall of Asia. We urge you not to miss this forthcoming big event. So many exciting things to expect:
FOOD TRIP GALORE
As many of you know by now, the Hypermarket is the home of the ultra-affordable SM Eats where they sell the popular Turon with Langka, cheesy corn, ginataan bilo-bilo, cheap rice meals, kwek-

as the Philippines’ biggest brands’ sous chefs are lined up to have cooking demos where they will share creative ways in using everyday ingredients. They will also show exciting twists on favorite products guaranteed to bring much needed variety to the dinner table.
During the MOA launch, we spotted model & celeb Daniel Matsunaga taking the time to have a selfie with his fans. Other in-demand personalities are scheduled for the roadshows where the shoppers can interact with them and take home exciting prizes.
