Here my experience of Tour 1 – Science with Chef JJ Yulo and Artha Ting of The Mind Museum
First stop was Gustare, I’ve actually heard a lot of good things about this place but was never able to find it. It is located behind The Goose Station, both house in W Tower, a couple of buildings away from VASK. Gustare is owned by Ginny de Guzman, former owner of Sugar House, which started out as a commissary for outsourced desserts. It has evolved to be so much more, an experimental space with ready to eat food, cakes and even host private dinners.
We sampled Ginny’s Calamansi Sansrival, Canonigo and the super addicting Meringue Kisses.
The last stop was at the Mind Museum for the Future Feast, a collaboration between the museum and selected chefs to create dishes that we might be eating in 2050.
We sampled Chef Ian Carandang’s Nut Milk Ice Cream Bar, Chef Sau del Rosario’s Togu Moringa and Aloe Vera Panna Cotta, Kyle Imao’s Croquek and Seaweed Tempura, Nancy Lumen Reyes’ Jello Insekto and Jeepers Creepers and EAT’s Banana Bread made from earthworms.
