Berliners got a taste of Filipino food this Christmas through the Philippine Embassy stand at the Weihnachtsrodeo Christmas Bazaar, held from December 7 to 8, in Berlin’s trendy Kreuzberg District.
With its participation, the Embassy and its partners put on display food products that are not only of good quality, but also sustainably-produced.
Health-conscious and eco-friendly Berliners took their pick from a wide-variety of products on offer, such as black and red rice, coconut vinegar and sugar, and banana chips courtesy of Loop Products, a Dutch distributor of fair-trade products sourced directly from Filipino farmers and cooperatives.
Curious shoppers were served Filipino Christmas staple bibingka and beef empanada, as well as ube (purple yam) waffle, and adobo from Ayan Filipino Streetfood Restaurant based in Berlin.
Those looking for holiday presents were also in for a treat with a selection of pearl jewelry, fashion accessories, and handicraft items from the Little Big Box Project of the International Bazaar Foundation and the Department of Foreign Affairs Special Projects Unit.END
