Entrepreneurs, foodies, and culinary enthusiasts everywhere can finally let out a deep sigh of relief, heavy with anticipation (as we did too) because organizer Makansutra has begun posting on their Facebook once more – with their first post for the year 2019 bearing good news: World Street Food Congress (WSFC) in the Philippines is returning to Manila this October.
Following with the late celebrity chef, TV food personality, and author Anthony Bourdain’s message and vision to the WSFC in 2013 about building the ‘Bourdain Market’ and in World Street Food Congress Philippines 2017 regarding ‘the potentials and opportunities in heritage street food culture’, organizers also announced on their social media last February 21 that “Street Food Roads to Success” will be the theme for World Street Food Congress 2019; “at the World Street Food Dialogue will be about inspirations and opportunities because there is a universe of platforms and offers out there for talents in this field.”
The organizers are thankful to the DoT and the TPB for their fervent belief on the movement that “The Philippines is a culinary wonder that is in the midst of erupting onto every dining table in the world. It will happen and turn it into a true culinary culture that offers jobs, entrepreneurship, tourism, lifestyle touches, trade, and industry potentials.” and thrilled that attendees will experience and learn from people who have traversed the path to success and have delicious stories to share at Bonifacio Global City (we are as well, and we couldn’t agree more). Are you as excited as we are for WSFC? For regular updates and more information, check their Facebook Page.
