Yesterday afternoon, Keri and I got to check out The Gourmand Market by Trish Panlilio, Dara David-Roa, and Dong Ronquillo.

Keri and I went straight to the Moët & Chandon area where we were treated to their latest offering. According to Moët & Chandon, Ice Imperial, the first and only champagne especially created to be enjoyed over ice. A new champagne experience combining fun, fresh and free sensations while remaining true to the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.

Poke bowls by Pololi We got to chat with the young lady behind it who grew up in Hawaii. Pololi is also available in Hong Kong and it's nice that they're here to test the market.
