If we only lived in a foodie world, that would be the headline of the Daily News Today… Heeheehee. “Following the second Market Manila Eyeball held at Gourdo’s last night, admitting doctors in the emergency room of General Hospital said they thought this was the first and only recorded case of sugar overdose in the hospital’s 40 year history, until a steady stream of roughly 70 more individuals showed up throughout the night with the same symptoms!” OH MY GOSH!!! Thank you everyone for bringing that incredible array of desserts to the Eyeball! From the three spectacular sapin-sapins to the frozen brazo de mercedes, buko pie from los banos to kakanin from cainta, tira misu, beautiful cupcakes and cakes, brownies, food for the gods, and flavors of macadamias, caramel, chocolate, fruit, oats, etc… the list is simply too long to remember and I just didn’t keep track! So please, if you were present at the Eyeball last night, kindly leave a comment here and name the dessert that you brought and if it was homemade or commercially produced. If you purchased it, kindly provide the name of the source and contact details so that we can start to build a Marketmanila “blackbook” of the finest sources for take-away food in Manila! Mr. Marketman, Mrs. Marketman and The Kid are still recovering from the evening and since a friend took photos, I have to wait until I get to see them before I put a full post on the Second Eyeball…but please record the desserts here so we don’t lose track of it. And if you weren’t at the Eyeball and are wondering what these little packets of goodies are, they were the budbud kabog (millet cakes/suman) that all of the guests took home with them…how did they taste, by the way??? More on the Eyeball coming up soon! Thanks again to everyone who helped make it happen and all of you who attended the event!
