Will you go for the popular restaurant, or your type of restaurant?

The expensive restaurant that draws celebrities, or the one that you'd rather go to with your family?

The restaurant that's the much awaited franchise to raid the Philippines, or the one that's been serving home-cooked meals for so long???

Yup. YOU will be the one to tell us which restaurant deserves...


DAN! DAN! DAN!!!!!!!!!!!

OH YOU BET I AM you cute Koala eating leaves!!!!

I have been a food lover (so much that I almost wanted to marry it) that whenever I try to open a decent conversation with people about POLITICS, ECONOMICS, BUSINESS, THE WORLD (Tee hee).... they would still veer me this question....

Grabbed from the net

"I HEAR YOU but what do you recommend if I want to eat BLANK in BLANK?"

Like what THE PICKIEST EATER posted recently, when I am asked that question, I am left blank. At first I thought it was alzheimers (yep! Time to get out that NOTEBOOK), but then I realized there were so many choices that I cannot just narrow it down to BLANK and BLANK.

Besides, taste is very subjective that what I may be pigging out in is something that disgusts you. 

And in today's cuisine, there is just a LOT to choose from that you will love!

What do you usually pig out on?

Korean Ban Chan?




Oh and Ramen again (favorite... tee hee!)



Yup and I haven't really started yet.


With that, OUR AWESOME PLANET and THE KAIN TULOG GANG (or the KTG)  with WORLD FOOD EXPO (WOFEX) joined forces to bring you THE ONE AND ONLY People's Choice Awards for your FAVORITE FOOD, RESTAURANTS, BARS...

And you could do that by participating in THIS survey that matters...

Just click on it!

THE CHOICE !!!!!!!!!!!!

What is "THE CHOICE" award???? 

We conducted an intense first round of voting among ourselves, and our resulting finalists have made us very pleased:  we feel it's a very diverse and fair representation of all our Metro Manila favorites. The categories are very broad, as they should be in a democratic vote. 

However, we'd like to emphasize that this is NOT a "Best of..." list. Our good friends and respected colleagues from The MBKRS are doing an excellent job of recognizing the restaurants and restaurateurs in their prestigious bi-annual awards.

The MBKRS are rightly regarded as the Oscars of our ever growing foodie community. So we'd like "The Choice" to be the Golden Globes~ a bit more irreverent, surely less formal, and yes, it ought to be greatly biased. After all, YOU will be voting for your favorites, this is YOUR CHOICE!!!

We had a total of 2,075 respondents during the inaugural The Choice 2015 survey; 
here's a look back at our inaugural awards held at the SMX Mall of Asia in August of 2015:

So with that...


You can vote your favorite restaurants here:

VOTE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Now did you say that in Captain Planet's voice?)

The Choice 2016 Voting is open for 2 weeks starting from 
August 15 and ends on August 31, 2016 12 midnight. 

The Choice Restaurant Awarding will happen on
September 17, Saturday during the Ultimate Taste Test 2016!

Now, please remember these SURVEY PARAMETERS...

1. For the Favorite New Restaurant category, our coverage period includes restaurants that opened between June 1, 2015 to July 31, 2016.

2. There are 50 questions in this survey and answering this survey should take around 5-10 minutes. It is best to give a definitive answer on each question and feel free to skip if you can't decide.

3. All answers are treated confidential and final once you click on the submit button. One survey response for one person only.

4. Please give us your name and email address for our random validation of the survey responses.

5. For the Favorite Out-of-Town Destination category, we now changed it to have a more detailed Favorite Restaurant Category for each foodie destination

Now just in case you're confused and can't remember the delicious burger you ate 3 days ago in goodness knows where, check out the blogs of THE KAIN TULOG GANG (THE KTG)!!!

Now who are THE KTG??? 

The KTG is a group of friends who are not just crazy about food but they all just happened to be some of the top food and lifestyle bloggers in the Philippines!!!!

Every one of their individual blogs ranks among the highest ranking and most influential online publications dedicated to food, entertainment, and travel.

Too bad they do not have a negative number in ranking (BOO HOO) so I do not join them in THAT aspect. 

BUT, I'm still the number one stalker of my fellow KTG guys though!!!!

The KTG is composed of some of the more senior food bloggers in the country that I have been stalking for some time, including Richie Zamora of "The Pickiest Eater in the World', Spanky Enriquez of "Manila Boy", Jill Bantang of "The Food Scout". 

And  representing the younger generation are "The Hungry Kat", "Food in the Bag", and "Nines vs. Food". And from the world of showbiz, Mr. Chuckie Dreyfus, a dedicated foodie who's also a respected tech blogger.

Of course, the KTG have more purpose in life than just eating and sleeping. While we do playfully call ourselves THE KAIN TULOG GANG, we have officially participated in relief efforts in Tacloban and Iloilo after Yolanda; and in Metro Manila.

KTG could also be called as KAPATIRAN SA TULONG AT GINHAWA because our group has a constant mission to contribute in providing joy and comfort to the less fortunate.


and our fantastic foodie friends from:


Philippine Star's "Let's Eat" monthly magazine and television show.


Or STRANGER THINGS will happen....

(I don't know if that connects but the font is just SO EFFIN COOL.)


Let me post the link again just in case you forget...

(Malayo pa... Ang umaga......)

So we'll see YOU on September 17, 2016, 1;00pm at SMX AURA!!!!!!
