Masarap Nga! Meet and Eat at Novotel Manila Araneta Center is a food event you shouldn't miss

Satisfy your inner foodie with these 17 local food products from the country's most promising Small and Medium-sized Food Enterprises (SMEs)! Kat Abaan, a.ka. MasarapBa​, personally handpicked these mouthwatering food products.

The next 17 days are the best days to dine at Novotel Manila because of the “MASARAP NGA! MEET AND EAT”—a food festival showcasing seventeen products from the most promising Small and Medium-sized Food and Agribusiness Enterprises (SMEs) in the Philippines.

Thrown together by the country's famous online food critic who goes by the alias "Kat Abaan Jr." a.k.a. MasarapBa, the Masarap Nga! Meet and Eat is a reverberation of the MasarapBa online community's clamor for a grand foodie event. Thanks to Novotel Manila Araneta Center, the outcry was (promptly) heard.
“Finally, it’s happening. We can realize this project that has been popularly in demand by both my online followers and consumers who have been yearning for food that they are comfortable with and yet offer innovative concepts and experiences,” Kat said.
Months of preparation led to this day. According to MasarapBa on an interview with ABS-CBN, the challenge was to coordinate with a number of people but satisfyingly, getting the chefs of Novotel to approve the "ingredients" from the SMEs went smoothly.

For Kat, the main goal of Masarap Nga! Meet and Eat! is to open opportunities for and empower the SMEs, so getting an institution like Novotel to agree with the collaboration is truly beneficial.

Novotel Manila Araneta Center’s General Manager, Mike Brown, strongly supports MasarapBa's ambition for small and medium-sized entrepreneurs who clearly have potential. He affirms Novotel is aligned to creatively promoting these small businesses through the property. He then expressed his gratitude towards the SMEs and MasarapBa at the official launch of the Masarap Nga! meet and Eat! 
“Novotel Manila is not just a fun global brand that provides the best for its guests but it’s also a cooperative member of the community. We are grateful that Masarap Ba? chose us for this creative collaboration which also includes some of our food products. This innovative move brings out the best of both local players and our hotel’s global culinary team,” he said.
