Have you ever tried eating in 8 restaurants in 3 hours?
Sounds crazy? Oh yeah!
I don’t really know how you define food trips but let me share with you how we define food trips, the Tuscany way. 😉
Megaworld, Anton Diaz of Our Awesome Planet and RJ Ledesma of Mercato Centrale bring you the ultimate food trip of the season, “An Awesome Secret Foodies Tour”.
Few days ago, I joined Anton, RJ and some friends from the media for the launch of their foodie tour. I planned my breakfast and lunch already to make room for the foodie tour at night. Knowing I had to visit 8 restaurants in 1 night, I really had to be conscious of what I eat before the night. Well, that’s in order to appreciate more of my dinner by reducing flavors I try during daytime.
I know you are excited to find out what this foodie tour is all about. So here it goes, take a peek of what to expect at this Tuscany foodie tour.
|1) Prosciutto con Melone
2) Crespella del Poggio Antico
3) Pomodoro en Mozzarella Crostini & assorted pizzetas
4) Oyster Sur Pate di Fegato
8 restaurants in line. One of the restaurants that will start to gain your appetite is Trattoria Poggio Antico. An Italian restaurant that serves must-try appetizers.
Out of the 4 appetizers served, I found Oyster on Liver Pate the weirdest yet the yummiest. It was my first time to try this experimental appetizer of oyster mixed with liver pate. But of course, it’s never a disappointment to try Mozzarella Crostini.
A Mexican restaurant worth trying is B&T Mexican Kitchen.
On my plate is a crowd of all Mexican delights.
B&T didn’t sound new to me. In fact, their first branch at San Juan is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the area. I used to go for their Mango Glazed Habanero Chicken. Until now, I have to admit it is still my favorite from them. On your Tuscany foodie tour, that mango chicken will be part of your plate as well.

|B&T Wet Burrito
Next stop, we didn’t need to sit down and feel cozy. All we had to do is reach out for the ready-made Bagel with assorted Cream Cheese Filling
by Les Bagels
Les Bagels is owned by a Jewish American who brought New York bagels to the Philippines.
Turo-turo style in a sosyal
|Bagel with Sundried Tomato and Basil
Highlight of my night is this!
The bagels and cream cheese fillings are insanely good!!!
It was that good that before leaving Tuscany, I bought some cream cheese fillings for myself! :))
|Bagel with Bacon Cheddar
Bacon satisfaction for you. Bacon bits swimming in your mouth together with luscious cream cheese.
Sauceria’s first branch is at Bonny Serrano near Camp Crame. I visited that branch way back in 2011. This Artisan restaurant is known for being crafty and artistic. Sauceria
is proud of their dishes as they make everything from scratch, including their condiments like ketchup, mayo and the like.
|Feta Cilantro Tomato Cocas
At the Tuscany tour
, I only got to try 2 dishes. But if you want to know more about Sauceria, you can visit my old post
back in 2011.
