Beyond Manila Bites: CBTL

Here's the second event of the Beyond Manila Bites food crawl series: Global Meets Local! The event was held at UP Town Center where we featured EIGHT of the metro's international and local best comfort food stores!

Last August 13, 2016, Global Meets Local brought together people from different fields of the food industry and other influencers for a whole day food celebration at UP Town Center! Through this series, ForkSpoonManila (Alexis Manuel Deocaris) overhauled the traditional food crawl where the media and influencers can share their experiences and impressions regarding the food, through of course, social media. During the event, we not only got to socialize with each other, but more importantly, we met a lot of the people behind these restaurants and discovered the stories behind their dishes and store concepts.

For me, the event was also a great way to sharpen my photography skills. Even though people were technically taking pictures of the same dishes, all our photos came out so differently! So yes, I definitely learned a few things from people like Cy Ynares (@thebaldbakerph), Iza Gallego (@iza.gram), Mark and Bianca Tan (@eatsplorations), JP Gonzaga (@chubbyperohappy), and Lucky Alabado (@discovermnl)! Check out the posts on Instagram tagged #BeyondManilaBites to see for yourself :)
Born and brewed in Southern California in 1963, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf takes pride in serving expertly crafted coffee and tea beverages and various cakes, pastries, and gourmet options. "We take our passion beyond the cup, carefully selecting only the top two leaves and a bud for our teas, and only the top 1% arabica beans for our coffee, all while dedicating ourselves to cultivating a sunny attitude and good-hearted relationships. We pour everything we have into everything we serve, from carefully selecting what we harvest, to our roasting process, to giving you the perfect cup!

What we had: Nono's Chocolate Oblivion, Blueberry Cheesecake, Brewed Coffee, and Tea.
My new favorite chocolate cake!
P.S. I highly recommend trying their Honey Apple Chai Tea Latte!
