It was my first time being invited as a food blogger-judge for Foodgasm IV. I was very honored and happy because it would be the first time my personal blog would be out in the public. As a food blogger-judge, we were given a chance to have a friend come with us and share the experience. I came with Soshi with butterflies in our stomach, anticipating what food to expect.
Foodgasm opened to the public at around 7pm but as a food-blogger judge, our call time is 6PM, giving us enough time to scan the stalls, take pictures and talk to merchants. We didn’t have any strategy, we just tried the stalls with less people so we could chat with the merchants. But come 7PM, a lot of people flocked in and continued until 9-10PM.
A short intro of Soshi’s palate
He is the pickiest eater I know that long. As you know, I love experimenting and re-creating food (as you can see with a lot of my blog posts here). Most of the time, He is my food taster. He seemed to not like most of the dishes I recreated. He’s not adventurous with food, would ask a lot, nitpicking information about the food, and usually ending up not eating the food. He loves carb-loaded, fat-ladden foods, but veers away with sweets.
Here are the food merchants present that night and what we thought of their food products:
Chili Chili Bang Bang’s Original Chili and Bite in the Bullet Chili

Chili Chili Bang Bang’s Chili was your typical home-made chili served with nachos. They sell their chilis in jars or you can buy both chilis and nachos from them.
Verdict: It was good, but our giddy stomaches were expecting something different and/or unique. The Bite in the Bullet Chili was the spicier version which appealed better to me because I love spicy food. Soshi finished the nachos.
