One of the new food bazaar in Metro Manila is the Baga Manila. I heard about this food bazaar lately and they ha D also branch in Cavite, Alabang etc.

Went here last May 8 in the evening. Pre-Mothers day dinner treat for me.! Hubby was very eager to eat in this place as he always see this when passing Libis.

There were many food stalls, from drinks, dessert and main dishes. We had bagnet but it's not crispy, then cupcake for dessert and the top was good but the bread of the cupcake was not. Price is not affordable.

Never thought I'd love it here. Had 2pc BBQ with rice for 60php and Chicken Pasta for 100.

Chicken Pasta was a little expensive.

This is a good place to drink and eat and listen to music from a live band. Plus they have a tiangge on the side.

Got food poisoned here so better be careful to everything you eat here and make sure they really reheat it to lessen the bacterias.

Ate here last saturday and this branch is in libis are near shopwise.
I think i got poisoned by the dinakdakan. Just be very cautious guys about the food you eat.

Baga Manila is another pop-up food market place ala Banchetto in the area. What i like about Baga are the choices and non-mainstream food places you can eat at. Also, this place is open almost everyday usually from four in the afternoon to twelve midnight (and even later). Baga has branches beside Shopwise Libis, Lake Front Sunset Grill in Sucat, Daang Hari Alabang, and All Home in Imus Cavite.

My friends and I were able to try a few items from the different merchants like different kinds of barbecue, Ilocos empanada, Milo dinosaur, fresh lemonade, sisig rice, and bacoooon.

Things we loved were the different kinds of barbecue like isaw-manok, isaw-baboy, betamax, and balunbalunan. Also the bacon-liempo was good with rice and suka.

The lemonade from "John Lemon" was okay - it was a bit watered down and had too much sugar. The Milo dinosaur was forgettable. The sisig rice was mostly rice with bits of sisig, but very filling and (what did i expect naman ba for 35bucks :p) cheap.

Really did not care for the Ilocos empanada. Worst Ilocos empanada i have had. The wrapper broke, the egg was uncooked, and the "longganisa" was not not longganisa at all but just ground pork.

Last thing i noticed is that the cashier was centralized. You ordered from the stalls, then have to line up again at the cashier. It was a tad bit inefficient IMHO, especially when there were only two poeple manning the payment booth.

Still with its ups and downs, Baga Manila is a great place to hang out and have a beer after work.

After watching The Equalizer, my friends thought it was still early to go home and call it a day. To be honest, I was really tired and wanted to go home na; but they were all persuading me to stay and hangout with them. I was a bit skeptical about their ideas like moving to a bar and have a drink. But we ended up at BAGA MANILA for good.

It was a weekend market like Greenfield’s, but the choices were a bit fewer and focused largely on the grilled food. Isaw, bbq, lamang-loob, betamax are the most common food you can see here. But you can also find some others like lechon, sisig, some Pinoy favorites and even desserts like ice cream and cupcakes. There were also some clothing stalls but not too many. My friends also spotted a tattoo shop inside the perimeter.

We bought some isaw (Php20,00 each) and bbqs to accompany our bottle of beer (Php70,00 each, if I recall it right). There’s also a pocket stage setup for bands, but not sure where the band is or what time will they play though. Not bad at all, but we all end up amoy-usok after.

Normal day at Baga Manila. They're open on weekdays only.

Lots of cuisines to explore: there's Pinoy food of course–ihaw-ihaw style, mediterranean, Korean, also desserts and so many others to choose from. The sizzling bulalo is the most interesting thing I've tried here.

There are also food trucks on some days, for Philly cheesesteak lovers, truffle fries, etc.

Walking distance from our place. Nice place to hang-out on weekends (even weekdays) esp if you're not picky with bands/performers, drinks, crowd and food. Before it used to be majority food stalls but now they have clothes bazaar too (i like the the idea of numerous food selection). Try the adam's apple drink (you have to ask the bartender for this since it's not seen in the bat list), my choice of cocktail whenever i'm here. Love their grilled food esp the isaw and hotdogs. Mercato has wider selection of food but BAGA offers live band music and more relaxed dine-in feeling.

Nice hangout place if you are not picky. We usually go here on Fridays. Good band playing and cheap beer and beer chow. You can also have you dinner here alfresco. You can park your car at the basement of A. Venue. Parking fee is 40 bucks flat rate and is good until 2am.

BAGA Manila (Barbecuers and Grillers Association) is not much of a food centrale. The food options are few, and they're nothing special. But I like coming here because it is such a convenient place to grab a quick dinner and get my isaw fix. 128513

The best items I've tried here are their special bulalo and papaitan (both served piping hot, perfect for the cuddle weather we've been having lately). Honorable mention, the Ilocos empanada. Everything else is your usual lutong bahay and ihaw ihaw street food.

Pros and cons:

128077Live entertainment! They have singers on week nights, and a band on Saturday nights. My eyes are not 20/20 but my friend says the Saturday night band members are gwapo (their covers are pretty good too!). 128514
128077Ice cold beers at P40. They also have cocktails and hookahs!
128077They have tiangge stalls (selling mostly accessories and clothes for girls). One stall sells signature scents in tester bottles! 128516
128077Sometimes they also have bingo and karaoke nights. Sounds corny dba, but the prizes are BAGA Manila GCs worth P100-P500!128076

128078Very few food options. They don't even have dessert.
128078Mosquitoes 128542
128078It's in an open parking space. No aircon + hassle when it rains.

In sum, I wouldn't go here for the food, unless you just want street food. Go for the live entertainment and cheap beer. 128522
