Ever tried the handcrafted burgers at 8Cuts? How about Din Tai Fung’s xiao long bao, or the creative take on your favorite sushi at Ooma? These, among other brands, operate under Moment Group, which celebrated its fifth year of offering unique culinary experiences last month.
The Moment Group, with the help of long time Bonifacio Global City resident and food curator JJ Yulo, hosted a food crawl and guided tour around BGC. While it was more than our tummies could handle, the experience left a smile on our lips and a feeling of gustatory satisfaction.
In no particular order, here are Super’s Moment Group favorites and why we insist that you try them.
