Finally got the chance to "escape" my DLSU bazaar stall last night and attend a blog event for Tokyo Tokyo. Mom allowed to me to go out even on a weekday na bazaar week pa (I know I'm such a baby haha) just because it's only for dinner in Shang. Went to a 5pm meeting with Pax, and we went straight from the exciting project in Ortigas to Shang Mall's Le Coeur de France for some "supposed snack time". Kape kape lang! But we ended up so full na even before our food event even started! ;P Tigas ng ulo. LOL.
When we reached the venue (ang laki ng Tokyo Tokyo dito!), we saw that bloggers and Tokyo Tokyo chef were in the middle of making their own California Maki! :D
Cutie Jill of The Food Scout, amused with her work! :D
The cute (ang hunk lang) DJ Gino of RX hosted the event!
They asked for more volunteers, but slightly tamad-mode ako that time (nagsisisi nako). Here's Ms. Lace of Style and Relax! :) Donned in a kimono dahil asa invi na "best in Japanese costume" wins MUJI gifts and GCs! :P
Since I came from my bazaar, I only got to bring my white Hello Kitty frames which I got from a market in SG. Ang cute, papagraduhan ko to! Nakakatuwa because I see the youngsters in Singapore train stations and streets wearing these, and walang pakels ang mga tao as if normal lang na ganito suot mo, hehe:
Also wore another SG find: An "origami airplane" ring which I scored in what I call "Bloggers United ng SG". Cute!
Anyway, the second batch of blogger volunteers made American Maki naman, cool kasi may cream cheese and spam! :)
I am not sure if you've been to a Tokyo Tokyo branch lately and noticed that they are more than a bento place. Tokyo Tokyo has always been known for its Japanese dishes with a unique twist to appeal to the Filipino taste buds--offering complete meals in a box at may refillable rice pa! Now, they also serve California Maki and other Japanese rolls, which costs less than P100 lang so sulit na for me! :) Anyway, this event introduced another addition to their growing menu..
After the demo, we went to our seats for more Tokyo Tokyo Talks:
Most of the other guests are food bloggers! :)
With my super kulit and fun company: Aisa Ipac! :)
"Maka picture lang!" Lol.
What we had:
Introducing the new Tokyo Tokyo Burgers!!! Japanese premium burgers that you can afford, my meat-loving sisterettes will love these!!!
Shogun literally means commander in chief, and the Tokyo Tokyo Shogun Burger definitely commands your appetite with its crunchy onion rings, and premium beef patty with savory Tonkatsu sauce!
Shiitake mushroom has been a well known classic delicacy in Asia for centuries, and they made it even better with this delectable Shiitake Mushroom Burger with Teriyaki sauce and shiitake mushrooms.
The other burgers they served that night:
One of my favorite blogger couples: Sir Azrael and Ms. Lace enjoying their Japanese burgers!
At dahil busog kami, si Pax naman, enjoying her take homes (hahaha!)...My family LOVES me when I went home with these baon!
After awhile, they showed their new Tokyo Tokyo TV ad for Shogun Burger, featuring Daniel Matsunaga!
