I invaded Marketman's Kitchen

Would you believe me? I literally invaded Marketman's kitchen during the Market Manila Lechon Eyeball in Cebu just a few hours ago!

While bloggers, guests and some media people do the usual chitchats and hi-hellos, I found comfort in the kitchen, Marketman's kitchen! I wish I could get some pictures of myself while I assisted in the preparations. Anyways, here are some I took when nobody was minding me. More pics can be seen through this link.





Marketman himself doing the stuff we love. Why blurred pics? He doesn't want to be clearly seen hehehehe. Sorry sir, it was actually a bad hand but I am making your "invisibility" an excuse.



The not-so secret ingredients I found at the kitchen.




The reason why we have come and meet everyone...





And some other treats!




And of course the meal would not be complete without the desserts! dessertsss! dessertssssss!





The place? A good 5-minute walk from my apartment in East Capitol Site. And this was where Anthony Bourdain had a great time in Cebu!


And as if the Lechon Eyeball was not enough, Marketman gave each one of us Broas from Osang's of Baclayon, Bohol and Silvanas from Mrs U.



And a souvenir from Lee of Bacolod(?).



What a very good day! Thanks Marketman.

Edik said...

yes melody- you should not miss the next one hehehe. i think there would be one in manila too.

and Grace- i don't usually each lechon but i had a few and it was yummy. i'm not sure of the mango though. i had the "dirty ice cream" as dessert. i came back for four more helpings.

Edik said...

Edik said...

hi pulutan- i've seen the lechon sauce MM had to make the day before. but i didn't like the way it looked hahaha. so i didn't took a pic.

jenny- the souvenir from lee is a picture souvenir worth framing hehehe. it says, my arteries survived the marketmanila lechon eyeball.

thanks for the visit guys.

ivy said...

the experience talaga was really great. finally meeting marketman... as well as our readers and bloggers.. and nakakatawa c waitlisted joey..

moni said...

Edik, I was looking for you at the Lechon Eyeball. I sat next to Millet of Davao and we kept on looking around. In the end, we said, "Basin wa moabot." Didto ka diay sa kitchen.

Edik said...

hey Moni- I was there but hid myself in the kitchen. I have a problem dealing with new faces and the kitchen was a good excuse not to be seen. MM's staff already knew me from an activity before so I felt at home with them...

But I went out really and stayed near the ordered lechons which the group barely touched.

joan said...

edik! did we meet??? grabe na the cholesterol, i can't put the names and the faces together! hahahaha i remember meeting you though...i'm the photo with my husband! thanks for the pics, i hope you can send me some. i found the time too short to get to know everyone on a more personal basis so i hope we can again meet up soon.

Lee said...

eeeey edik!

I see you posted a pic with me expanding my muscular abs! plus I see my orange bag near joan. Thanks for the quick post, will upload my photos soon.

Looks good! Now, I am craving for Lechon!!!!!!

kidpawan said...

thanks for the pics Edik... not quite like being there in person pero pwede na rin... you're a bit shy pala preferring to stay in the kitchen rather than mingle.. good pics!

Edik said...

Ms Joan- i think you said Hi to me hehehe.

you're right. i can't really figure out who's who in the crowd except those who say a few words like you and Lee and Mrs MM.

ang dami kaya and the time is so short hehehe.

Kidpawan- i'm shy on the first meeting pero madaldal na thereafter.

joan said...

Edik, if you don't mind, where are you connected? you have a mighty interesting blog...

Isagani Sabado said...

edik suya ko kay naka adto ka sa MM Lechon EB, i wish i have the money to go but sadly wala. hay kalami sa mga pagkaon oi! galaway na ko heheheh

Edik said...

Ms Joan-

i am disconnected hahaha. actually i'm a freelance graphic designer (daw) and been staying in cebu for quite sometime na.

i live just 5 houses away from the eyeball site.

Edik said...

hoy isagani mianhi ka pa. mag gujod jod ka sa imong tiyan pag-uli hahahah. haskang daghana sa pagkaon.

it was worth attending.

moni said...

Edik, usika ooi nga wa ka namo makita ni Millet. Didto ra ba sa end of the table nga duol sa food nanlingkod ang mga Bisaya.

Graphics designer ka ra ba and I'm a communication consultant. I hope we get to meet you next time. I have a niche blog, http://devcompage.com. My recent post is about "the making of a yin-yang logo" which is relevant to somebody with your expertise. Perhaps you can share a comment. Thanks for the pics that you uploaded.

Millet said...

Edik said...
