Let’s face it, we all love to eat out. As much as we try to stay healthy and save money, spending cash on some good food is always a good idea. If you’re like me, you don’t like being left with the decision of choosing where to grub. With so many choices out there, I can never decide. I always get stuck between two or more options. For situations like this, a food park or food hall is a wise solution. Not only will you be able to order from different vendors but everyone is sure to find something they enjoy. You can order from various cuisines, get some drinks, and my favorite part: Ordering more than one kind of dessert. If you’re looking for somewhere to spend your money, check out these food parks and food halls around the metro.
It’s safe to say Poblacion has been popping recently with bars and restaurants coming out left and right. If you and your friends can’t agree on just one place, however, you can check out this food park. Among the mural paintings and bold colors, there are many food choices. Pick a stuffed crust pizza, vegan noodle bowl, and some refreshing cocktails. Located at 5770 Ebro Street, Poblacion, Makati City
If you’re looking for a mix of savory and sweet treats, check out The Lokal Food Park. Order a seafood meal like shrimp and rice from Iseafood or a burrito from El Bigotilyo Taqueria. For dessert, pick between Tutti Frutti milkshakes and a s’mores pizza from Pizzeria Manila. Located at Shaw Boulevard corner Lawson Street, Mandaluyong City.
After a long day at work, gather your officemates and head over to Buendia Food By The Court. Order filling rice meals from Jack’s Joint or finger food by Keso Kumpadre. To really unwind, get some drinks to match like your favorite bottle of beer. Located at 3630 Buendia Street, Makati City.
The latest food hall to open in Metro Manila is The Corner Market Food Hall in The Podium. Aside from the different food stalls, there is also an indoor farmer’s market. You can get fresh produce and flowers at the Gusto Fast and Fresh Food stall. Located at 2/F The Podium, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong City.
Another easy and casual food park option is at Madison Commons. Tackle Big Guys Pizza’s 36-inch pie and wash it down with a bucket of sangria from Bangers & Buckets. Cool after a heavy meal with rolled ice cream or an ice cream sandwich from The Daily Grind. Located at 1 Brixton Street, Pasig City.
If you find yourself in Uptown Place Mall, grab a bite to eat at their food hall. They have a variety of tenants so you can get some Báhn Mì’s from Báhn Mì Kitchen or a salted egg chicken sandwich from Birdhouse. Located at 4/F Uptown Place Mall, Uptown Bonifacio, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
