SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Street Food 2015

Another spaghetti that won my vote..

SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Street Food 2015

This version is okay too

SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Street Food 2015

Lots of judges loved this tuna spaghetti, I agree with everyone, but I didn’t vote for it because I was looking for a spaghetti that we usually love – with tomatoes, cheese and meat.

SM Hypermarket Best Pinoy Street Food 2015

At the grand finals, they tasted the food prepared by Chef Boy Logro, the task is that they need to cook the same food using the recipe of it. Its like a blind cook off, because you don’t know what recipe to use, and you need to trust your taste buds and senses to determine the taste of it.

Chef Boy Logro gave hints that its like a courdon with abalone.
I didn’t got a chance to taste it hahha.but I will leave it to them.

They are challenge to shop for 30 minutes and go back at the cooking area to finish it within 30 minutes.
