Last Independence Day, June 12th, people from across age groups trooped to NutriAsia’s Joy Ride! food truck at Luneta Park to have a taste of both traditional and new Filipino comfort dishes created with quality products by NutriAsia.
According to Dang de Leon, corporate marketing consultant at Nutri-Asia Inc., the food truck goes around the metro offering reimagined local food fare.
“We tweak classic Pinoy comfort food to make the taste more appealing to millennials,” she said, adding that the brand has partnered with GalaStars Culinary, which is headed by renowned chef Ernest Reynoso Gala.
Chef Gala is very excited about collaborating with NutriAsia.
“They have so many wonderful products and as a chef, I have a lot of fun being creative with the recipes I am developing.”
Chef appreciates the fact that the leading condiments brand in the Philippines includes kitchen essentials like Datu Puti and Mang Tomas, plus excellent pre-mixes that make cooking a lot easier.
Served at NutriAsia’s Joy Ride! were Adoburrito, with a choice of Spicy Adobo and Humba Adobo, a dish popular in the Visayas.
De Leon recommends the Pinoy Chicken Slider served with pan de sal and the Siga Bagnet Wrap, which is prepared using Mang Tomas Siga, a spicy version of the regular Mang Tomas sauce.
It also has Datu Puti vinegar and cucumber for that added kick.
Meantime, the crowd favorite, Skinny Chix, is street food made crunchier and more flavorful by using NutriAsia’s recently launched, first-in-the-market Golden Fiesta Big Crunch Fry and Shake, a breading mix in smoked barbeque, cheese, and sour cream variants.
Food preparation was done from GalaStars Culinary then brought into the food truck. “We cook everything onsite so that food is fresh when served,” said Chef Gala.
Chef Gala has nothing but compliments for NutriAsia’s products. “When one has excellent condiments to work with, it is easy to adjust the taste and formulate the recipes. Cooking becomes ‘masarap masaya’.”
Prices at Joy Ride! range from Php 40 to Php 80. The brand makes offerings as affordable as they can so that want can taste their food creations. Serving portions are likewise larger than average, perfect for sharing.
Apart from making condiments and sauces, NutriAsia, de Leon reveals, has ventured into beverages. “We have pick-me-ups in mangosteen, guyabano, kamias, dalandan and kalamansi. These are locally sourced Pinoy fruits that we have bottled into natural juices.”
Watch for the Joy Ride! by NutriAsia, which started rolling out in Metro Manila this month, serving people at food parks, employees of business process outsourcing (BPO) companies, and customers at bazaars, events, and universities.
