“We created Sarsaya Oyster Sauce in such a unique way to suit the Filipino palate, thereby making more dishes like ginisang kangkong and adobo more flavorful and delicious,” says Pen Alvina, Ajinomoto;s Category Manager for Menu Seasonings.

Coco also shared that he feels delighted to be chosen as Ajinomoto’s brand ambassador for Sarsaya Oyster Sauce. A Hotel and Restaurant Management graduate in real life, Coco says he’s really into cooking. “I’m rarely at home because my job requires me to always be on my toes. But each time I do, I make sure to cook for my family. Unknown to many, I’m passionate about cooking in the same way I am with my craft (acting).”

During the said launch, there was a live cooking demonstration facilitated by Chef Mcryan Rodrigo who whipped up Ginisarsayang Kangkong with Tokwa and the Thai-Style Stir Fried Chicken cooked using Sarsaya Oyster Sauce. There was even a cook-off between two volunteer guests (mom bloggers), Macy Santos and Tina Perez. Coco gamely helped the two moms as they cooked and even rewarded them with photo opportunities.

Coco sites Beef Broccoli in Oyster sauce, Ampalaya con Carne and Kangkong in Oyster as his favorite dishes. “My grandma taught us to cook on our own. That way, we will never go hungry because we know how to prepare dishes by ourselves,” shares Coco.
“I love Sarsaya Oyster Sauce because it turns any simple dish into something extra special and it enhances the dish into something more flavorful too,” exclaimed Coco.

Lastly, because my Mom and my entire household are fans of “Ang Probinsyano” and Coco Martin, I wouldn’t want the said launch to end without my selfie with Mr. Coco Martin. Luckily, he obliged with a smile on his face. Coco Martin is no doubt, the perfect endorser for Ajinomoto because just like him, it’s been a brand loved and trusted by so many Filipino families.
