Avida Food Hunt discovers great food finds in Manila. Avida land successfully launched its first ever Avida Food Hunt last March, led by renowned Chef, JJ Yulo, guests were treated to a thrilling epicurean adventure as they sampled amazing restaurants and and cafes within the area of one of Avida's prime developments in Makati.

For its second leg, I am so happy to experience what Avida Food Hunt has to offer.  I felt like I am student again, reminiscing my teenage life, especially on the food what I ate before with my classmate and barkadas.

The Avida Food Hunt brings its unique food challenge to the streets of Taft Avenue in Pasay, the site of Avida Towers Prime Taft.  Located just minutes away from premier schools in Manila such as De La Salle University, Arellano Unviersity, Philippine Women's University, De La Salle - College of  Saint Benilde, San Isidro Catholic School and St. Scholastica's College, Avid Towers Prime Taft also has the advantage of being the condominium development in the area nearest to three major cities, Taft Avenue, Makati's central business district and the top commercial centers in Pasay.

With students, families and young urban professionals converging in Taft, it has become a priority for these homeowners to find amazing dining destinations that will suit their budget and tastes. The Avida Food Hunt takes on this challenge as participants embark on an exciting trip to discover affordable yet great food finds within the vicinity of Avida Towers Prime Taft.

Just in time for back-to-back school season, the dishes and restaurants featured int his Food Hunt will surely give students and parents alike great ideas on how they can maximize their allowance.

The first stop is at BLACK and WHITE Cafeteria located just right beside Avida Towers Prime Taft. This spacious and inviting restaurant, with its signature black and while floors, serves yummy and budget friendly meals that families and students will surely love. Black and White's famous Burger & Bacon Extra Special is a must-try along with a refreshing glass of their special red iced tea. 

Well, sometime if there was an ample time or break time during merienda, burger is the best food while having chit chat with your friends or reviewing your lesson because the next subject have a long quiz. Oh, I miss being a student.

The next destination is one of the longest-running Japanese restaurants in  Buendia-Pasay area, NEMOTO JAPANESE RESTAURANT. The restaurant offers authentic Japanese dishes from freshly sourced ingredients. Nemoto's regular customers favor their Special Mix Maki. Their variety of must-try fares are the maguro (tuna) sashimi, ebi (prawn) and kisu (fish) tempura, and yasi itame (stir fry vegetables)

My blogger friend Jing Javier of loves Japanese food, look she enjoyed the food and she like it very much. A very suggestive resto to those exchange student or to those Filipino students like Japanese food very much.

The third stop is the Rap's Steakhouse along Dagohoy Street. This meat lovers' paradise is an ideal choice for budget conscious diners. Sample their wide array of grilled steaks, including the highly recommended succulent porterhouse and T-bone steak at a fraction of the cost. But, what really makes Rap's b byword is their specialty sauces. Available in various selections, including Bordelaise (bone marrow,) red wine, and cream peppercorn, these sauces will perfectly complement any chose steak.

I love steak, so I ate much at Rap's, their sauce gave more appetizing that I can eat maybe 2 orders of rice now, hahaha, but for sure, when I am a student I can eat lots of rice with the steak and the sauce combine at Rap's. Well, all I can say is "Sauce pa lang ulam na, hahaha".

The Agno Food Court is the fourth destination of the Food Hunt. This open-spaced canteen has become an institution among students in Taft. Located in Agno street, just beside De La Salle University, the Agno Food Court boasts of numerous concessionaires that serves affordable food choice for students. Dimsums, doughnuts, Belgian waffles, and grilled rice meals are just some of the food stall that you can find in Agno Food Court.

Well, the organizer of the Food Hunt gave us a challenge they gave a money to buy food that you need to eat in 20 minutes because you will have an exam afterward. For me as student before, I will eat rice so that it will boast my brain to answer all the questions in the test. But since it's our fourth destination, I just chose Panini, a bread and fruit shake.

The final stop is at Noriter Cafe in Taft Avenue. This Korean-inspired coffee shop situated at the heart of the DLSU and SCB are is another favorite hangout spot among students. Try their famous Honey Bread and Java chip Frapuccino and relax  within its artsy interiors.

Love the cozyness of the place, its perfect to have a review. I just want to imagine, way back in my high school and college years, if digital cameras were present already, oh I'm sure I will have plenty of memorable captured moments.
