Food Diary - Appetite Restaurant Festival at Shangri-La Plaza

Appetite Restaurant Festival at Shangri-La Plaza

Brew of The Day attends another Food Trip Galore! This time the challenge was to "Taste The World" thanks to Appetite Magazine's 7th Anniversary most delicious event of the year - the Appetite Restaurant Festival 2011! Together with Shangri-La Plaza and MasterCard, Appetite presents a unique dining experience where you can let your taste buds travel all over the world -- all in one fabulous place. Foodies can indulge in international cuisines from different restaurants for irresistibly affordable prices!

Unveiling of the beginning of the Appetite Restaurant Festival
Hosted by Sam Oh dressed as a Flight Stewardess!
Thanks to Mega Publishing and Appetite Magazine, we were given a treat and was able to have a foretaste of what foodies can expect when they "Travel the World" by trying out the specially-made Appetite Sampler Menu platters from the participating restaurants at Shangri-La Plaza up til the end of November. I swear, I have never tasted so much food in such a short amount of time.My taste buds were overwhelmed and extremely satisfied with the samples that the participating restaurants showcased. Here are some of the food that I sampled.


CLAWDADDY Barbeque Baby Back Ribs
was absolutely DELICIOUS!
Its a MUST TRY for those meatlovers out there!
This was my favorite pick out of everything I ate during the whole event.
Yes, it was THAT memorable!

I LOVE PASTA and this Tom Yum Spaghetti is THE BOMB!
I LOVE it! I wanted to eat more of this but I can't coz then there wouldn't be anymore room
to taste the other dishes. lol. But this is definitely FILLING! I love love the pasta its super worth it!

The Chocolate Indulgence Cake was perfect! It wasn't too sweet and yes I definitely indulged in 
this cake and ate it with no guilt feelings whatsoever. hihi, goodbye diet!

One of the best salads that I tasted during the whole event! 
I love the tropical feel to the salad and it just reminded me of breezy summer
days when our yaya would mix something like this for us to eat.. 
I guess the memory trigger was due to the seaweeds included here.
Promise, it tastes nice and refreshing! Love it!

Anyone up for a different kind of dessert?
Try out C2's Durian Brulee!

After all the heavy meat and rice meals, I found an oasis of light delicious sandwiches
that really appealed to me basically because it looked appetizing. But also I was intrigued by the 
name of their sandwiches. In the end, I ended up tasting ALL of the sandwiches there.. (ahahaha.. yes I literally STUFFED myself!) and also couldn't resist a bite of the Bolognese pasta being served.
My verdict? LOVE IT!
Animal Farm sandwiches!
Journey to the Center of the Earth sandwiches!
The New York Times Best Seller Sandwich
(Signature Triple Decker)
Bolognese Pasta
I know you are probably wondering, how on earth was I able to consume everything?
Simple, I only took a bite. LITERALLY! lol. It was very hard though coz the Bolognese pasta was sooo light that I wanted to eat more!

So now I have a confession to make, I stopped taking photos after a while and just concentrated on tasting and eating! LOL. I really wanted to know how good the fare was. I was able to try out 10 out of the 13 participating restaurants. AGAIN, I promise I didn't overindulge (swear! lol) but I just took bites out of the others.
