Have you ever tried tasting 20 different kinds of food in 30 minutes? Amazing but true, and we do just that every year at the World Food Expo. Even though am not from the food industry, I make sure I take my annual dose of Wofex because it’s Manila’s ultimate foodie event – a whole pavilion of booths showcasing the latest food offerings, culinary trends, kitchen equipment and cooking demos.Even though I decide to do it alone, I bump into Mark of the Inquirer who also kept bumping into other people, including this action star who is now a food franchisee. People were lining up for Eng Bee Tin’s hopia like there’s no tomorrow, ditto with the stalls for chicharon, prawn crackers, dalandan juice and soft-serve ice cream. Since am trying to stay off my caffeine fix, I bought a pack of coffee which claimed to have beta carotene and anti-oxidant properties. After sampling red wine,four seasons juice,hot chocolate, nachos, ensaymada, brownies, dried squid, baked mac, sardines and corned beef with crackers in quick succession, my tummy was ready to start a revolution. Till next year’s foodie event!
