Not many people know this, but the month of May actually celebrates Europe Month. And to commemorate the festivity, EU-Philippines Business Network (EPBN) hosted the first ever European Food Festival in the country. It’s definitely a perfect way to appreciate or promote the exquisite flavors of Europe and, in a way, give us a few insights about their culture.
This food festival isn’t like the ones you have in mind, though. You’re probably thinking about one venue having different booths where you could taste everything within a day or hours, even– no. The European Food Festival intended for people to visit different partner restaurants themselves; that’s why it’s also a month long. It would give foodies the opportunity to really savor the country the restaurant represents in terms of ambiance and food quality (since it will be served fresh and hot, as compared to booths during usual food bazaars).
Partner restaurants are:
- Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano
- Maria Luisa’s Garden Room
- Restaurant 101
- Oktoberfest 365
- Paul Boulangerie
- Poco Deli
- Salvatore Cuomo
- Tauro by Society Lounge
- The Cafe Mediterranean
- Wagner German Bakery
You might think that winning the round trip ticket is a long shot and you can just eat at these restaurants anytime, but the European Food Festival want to make the experience more unique by coming up with a special menu just for the month. My personal favorite is Italian cuisine, and I think Carpaccio Ristorante Italiano can satisfy your taste buds if you’re into that, too.
How do I win those raffle tickets?
Simple: Just visit any of those restaurants and get a raffle coupon by purchasing from their special menu with a minimum of PHP 400.00. Fill out the coupon and put it in their drop box. Winners will be announced on June 14, 2017, 4:00 PM, at the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines in 19F Philippine AXA Life Centre, Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., Makati City.
Other than the round trip ticket to Europe, multiple people can win Gift Certificates from the partner restaurants.
Make this month a chance to get a feel of Europe and participate in this first ever European Food Festival. So call your friends, family, and loved one, have a fancy night, and enjoy possible exciting prizes!
