Each Friday we report on something interesting that we see on the streets of Bonifacio Global City.
What: Mercato Centrale @ BGC, open starting at 6pm as of July 29, 2014
Location: 8th Avenue corner 38th Street, Bonifacio Global City
Date observed: August 01, 2014 | Time: 10:00 PM
Bad weather could not stop people from going to Mercato Centrale @ BGC to have a quick midnight snack, chill and enjoy the amazing food that bring people closer together.
Manila Q’s bagwang is just one of the favorites of many people who come to Mercato Centrale, especially if they’re craving for Lechon Kawali (Crispy Pan-Fried Roasted Pork). This mouth-watering strip of meat looks like bacon but crunchy and tasty like bagnet. When combined with fried rice, egg and spicy vinegar, it is simply delicious! This is also my favorite!
What is Mercato Centrale without these popular street food like isaw, calamares, dugo, kwek-kwek, and more? Well, they’re awesomely tasty but exotic! Other interesting stalls included one that sold ice cream made from dry ice, and chili dogs sold from US-styled food truck (btw, food truck seems to be the next in-thing in the food fair sector). One stall was selling US steak at P190 per serving. Has anyone tried it?
Don’t you love soup especially in bad weather like this? Mercato Centrale has Shabu-shabu at one of the corners of the venue. With many ingredients to choose from, make your own aromatic broth, and happy tummy! Also, there’s plenty of drinks to choose from, enjoy and eat well!
The new location of Mercato Centrale is at 26th Street corner 7th Avenue, BGC, The Fort.
