Kulinaria at Portico

| 0 comments

For the second time this year, patrons reveled in sumptuous food and good music at Kulinaria at Portico, a familiar food event for Alveo Land’s developing property.

In tents lined with colorful lights, wooden picnic tables were laid out in columns for the eager crowds that came and sampled the concessionaires in bounding the food fair. Those who arrived early in the afternoon after a long journey by car or commute perked up with their choice of refreshment, a cold glass of Lemoon’s Lemonade, a quenching fruit smoothie from Thirsty Turtle, or a shot of Local Edition’s cold brew caffeine shakes. As the night went on, energized gastronomers then snacked on their pick of finger foods, a plate of chili cheese fries from Birdmen, a hot handful of Bigg Rigg’s 2-for-1 Shawarma, or a gourmet chili dog from Mad Mustard. Those who developed bigger cravings went and devoured a plate of Rodrigo’s Roast Beef, or a crisp helping of Tatang’s Boneless Lechon. Those who still had room ended the day on a sweet note as they enjoyed a unique dessert with a serving of Buccino’s unorthodox Ice Cream flavors, or a cleansing helping of fruits with oats from Makai Bowls, or even one of Pouf’s Colorful Cotton Candy animals.

Performers went up on stage to set the mood throughout the day. The tribal jazz band Dayaw got the hungry patrons going to the rhythm of their songs. As the rains pattered down, Ourselves the Elves played their chill jams to help people settle as the night went on. As the fair came to a close, Paincake Patrol took the stage and played the event off with his ambient electronic beats and synths.

A percentage of the proceeds of the concessionaires were donated to our partner organization Compassion And Responsibility for Animals or CARA Welfare. With a booth in front, CARA’s representative rescued dog Queenie welcomed onlookers while snacking on treats of her own. Interested fair-goers were encouraged to help and adopt animals in need and offered brochures promoting the organization’s advocacies.

This event was brought to you by Northern Living magazine and Alveo Land with official media partners Inquirer.net, Inquirer Plus, Preen.ph, ClickTheCity, When in Manila,Scout, and Coconuts Manila.
