Join’s Food Challenge amid home quarantine

“Bahala’g pobre basta hilas” 

This statement has resurfaced again during the quarantine period. A famous line in the Visayas and Mindanao, it points to how Filipinos take a sad or bad thing and turn it into something fun. As we always do.

At, we are initiating a food challenge that will surely awaken your creativity and turn simple home dishes into the most elegant piece of cuisine.

From appetizer to main course to the dessert, you are free to be as imaginative as you can be.  

Show us a presentation worthy of the gram and that master chef you always watch. You can use sardines, anchovies, fruits, noodles and even dried fish.
