Hausgemachter Leberkase // Homemade Meat Loaf with potato salad and pretzel.

It was Friday afternoon with a gloomy weather but who cares, it’s Friday and should be spent wisely! Thus, spending the night with my blogger friends in the comfort of great and authentic German foods was worthy enough to stay longer despite of traffic and possible floods on the way home.

A new bakery slash restaurant opens in the heart of Makati Central Business District to offer a great fare of authentic German cuisines and pastries. Well, I am talking about Wagner German Bakery which is located at Ground Floor of Two Central Building, Valero St., Makati City. Wagner German Bakery serves authentic German dishes plus serving the food incorporating its culture. Stepping inside the restaurant made you feel like you are in an Octoberfest celebration due to the way staffs dressed up. Plus, I had a chance to used one of their coveted hand-made stone mug! Best mug ever for beers! I know, beer-lovers you got to agree with me on this.


The restaurant has this cozy ambiance, neat, and the wonderful smell of breads would delight your nose to make your visit even more interesting. The wooden tables and chairs elegantly placed on the right corners that give justice to its space. The walls are painted white with some interesting decors – Olga and Angelo’s certificates are also mounted in the wall. By the way, they’re the chefs of Wagner German Bakery.

What enticed me upon entering the restaurant were the big pretzels on the counter top! They look so yummy and that was my first time to eat a real pretzel – not that sweet and very different of the usual pretzels available in the Philippines which are mostly sweetened and flavored. Of course, Wagner German Bakery’s breads are best paired with coffee. Speaking of culture, in Germany coffee is served in a steel tray with a placemat then a cup of coffee and a small glass of water with a teaspoon on top of it. So, yeah dining at Wagner German Bakery would also gives you a glimpse of what Germans usually do.  

What I loved and liked about this restaurant was that, everything they serve was made from their kitchen. Thus, it only deals with freshness and of good quality ingredients. And the serving is good for sharing. I was already full and was like in a food coma when I thought that we’re already done with our eating adventure but truly, the best is save for last! By far, Wagner German Bakery had the best pistachio gelato in town. Guys, it is a must-try!

So for now, let me indulge you of what this authentic German restaurant can offer. Enjoy!

Think: mouthwatering Adobo and an appetite for friendly fun. The Datu Puti Adobo Movement is cooking up an exciting lineup of challenges and events to support its thrust to get Adobo its due accolade. Part of this gastronomic lineup of events is the Adobo Challenge, Datu Puti’s search for the best version of the Adobo among a lineup of budding food entrepreneurs.

The Datu Puti Adobo Movement was initially created to push for Adobo to be our pambansang ulam. It is a movement that celebrates the cultural heritage of the Adobo dish. According to the Datu Puti Adobo Movement, all Filipinos across the regions have their own take on the dish, inspired by how the traditional comfort food is prepared by their families based on the their flavor preferences and their access to local ingredients.

Friendly Competition

The Datu Puti Adobo Challenge represents the next phase in the Datu Puti Adobo Movement. After the warm response to the advocacy in 2015, 2016’s Datu Puti Adobo Challenge is poised to drive more enthusiasm and sustain support for the cult fave dish. More specifically, the Datu Puti Adobo Challenge dares Mercato Centrale’s food vendors to stake their claim for the best Adobo dish in town.

To qualify, the vendor’s adobo dish must use any type of meat or vegetable, and marinated in or cooked with at least two of the three main Datu Puti products: vinegar, soy sauce, and patis (fish sauce). Accepted entries will be evaluated based on the various criteria, including: creativity of concept, which looks at the story behind the dish as well as originality, branding, and cooking technique; innovation, noting the use of unique special ingredients and Datu Puti products; and Philippine culinary heritage, including how it adopts and represents regional cooking styles.

Celebrating Adobo’s Best Mercato Centrale’s finest vendors will showcase their Adobo recipes at a gastronomic showdown at the Mercato Central Saturday market in Bonifacio Global City on June 11, 2016, the culmination of the Datu Puti Adobo Challenge.

Join the Movement on June 11 and enjoy the taste fest during the Datu Puti Adobo Challenge. Rate sheets will be tallied based on the sampling served to a select pool of judges. Then, at the end of the Datu Puti Adobo Challenge, three winners will be declared, taking into the account the flavor, story, and heart behind their Adobo masterpieces. In addition, a People’s Choice Award will also be given to the crowd favorite, based on the preferences of the foodies on site.

All Adobo winners will be awarded start-up funds in cash, so they can include their winning dishes in their regular Mercato menu for at least 12 nights. The People’s Choice awardee, on the other hand, will receive over Php 3,000 worth of Datu Puti goods.

Aside from the Datu Puti Adobo Challenge, the celebrations at Mercato Centrale on June 11 will also feature a celebration of homegrown talent, all in full support of the advocacy behind the Adobo Movement. The party will be hosted by familiar foodie Tonipet Gaba, and the feast will be made even more festive with musical performances by musical idols UpDharma Down and Ebe Dancel
