There are loads of reasons why people look forward to weekends—sleeping in, family time, get-togethers with friends, and eating out are just some of them. At the Greenfield Weekend Market, which is just a few blocks away from the MRT Shaw Boulevard station, you get a taste of all the goodness the weekend promises.

The official market day in Greenfield District’s Central Park may only be on Saturdays, but starting Thursday, different sellers begin to line its perimeter. That’s not all—there is always chill music come nighttime. Each day has its own theme: Jazz Fest for Thursdays, Kaleidoscope pop for Fridays, while Saturdays and Sundays take up a more relaxed family-friendly atmosphere.

Expect piles of pre-loved books and vinyl records to scavenge through and various Asian cuisines to try here. Whether you feel like sipping coffee or chugging booze, this weekend market is the place to be. Make sure you wouldn’t let your tastebuds miss these crave-worthy bites:

1. Sisig Sticks

Sisig bits and chopped up fresh ingredients are rolled into thick, deep-fried sticks (P99 for three pieces). Fruity Fried Chicken Company’s golden creation comes with a mayo, red onion and chili dip that completes the signature taste of this Filipino favorite. But unlike your usual sisig, these snackable sticks actually won’t give you a heart attack—it’s made completely out of chicken breast chunks. Interestingly, soft chicken white tendons are added into the sisig mixture to add crunch and texture, tricking eaters into thinking it’s a porky treat.

The Sisig Sticks can be any way you want it—a light snack on-the-go as you explore the rest of the weekend market, or the ultimate go-to beer chow. They also have much-spicier sticks available, so go ahead and ask for that additional zing.

You should also try Fruity’s double-fried chicken. They serve chicken drumsticks, thighs and whole breast fillets with fresh fruit strawberry and pineapple jams and orange marmalade as dips. After tasting this unlikely combo, you might just ditch your usual ketchup and gravy options for good. For regular customers, instead of treating it like dips, they like to have their crispy chicken drenched in these different sweet and tarty sauces which take an entire day to make from scratch.

2. Tokyo-style Takoyaki

Takoyaki might be a regular food stall sight, but Kentako flies in the Tokyo street experience. Their grills are shipped straight from the home of takoyaki, Osaka, but they cook takoyaki in Tokyo fashion—golden and crispy on the outside with a gooey explosion waiting inside. Even its cook is a legit Japanese—and that’s how you’re sure it’s as authentic as it gets. Fresh octopus bits, puffed tenkasu (tempura bread crumbs), beni shōga (red pickled ginger) and onion leaks make it to the takoyaki batter. The Original (P168) takoyaki boat is then topped with smokey bonito flakes and Japanese mayo.

Kentako also cooks their takoyaki the traditional way: Non-stop. While it’s a sight to watch them prepare this Nihon treat, always grab the ready and guaranteed-fresh takoyaki boats on the side so you no longer have to wait for it to cool. The trick is to devour the entire takoyaki ball in one bite to enjoy all its textures. They say if you want to really get to appreciate the octopus ball’s taste on its own, go for Tetsuyu takoyaki (P188) that has less frills and just good ol’ tempura sauce as a dip.

3. Korean Boneless Chicken Poppers

The moment they greet you “ososeyo!” (or “welcome” in Korean), you feel transported to the Seoul streets of Myeong-dong. K-fry sells chicken pops (P150) with an extremely loud crunch that you’ll be surprised it’s not double-fried like most Korean chicken street finds. It comes in two flavors: Soy Garlic and Sweet Chilli. It also has bits of fried sweet potato that adds an interesting texture in each bite. K-Fry also serves their chicken as part of heavy meal, which includes sides of japchae noodles and rice (P170). Their Japche (P130) is ideal for vegetarians as well. The tossed glass noodles in a simple mix of soy sauce and sesame oil are topped off with buttered cabbage and carrot strips before sprinkled with sesame seeds.

4. Green Coffee

This isn’t your regular cup of joe. It uses unroasted arabica beans, maintaining much of its earthy flavors and, more importantly, chlorogenic acid which is said to help in weight loss. Ultra Green Coffee (P85 a cup) looks like your regular coffee with cream, but it has a bunch of organic ingredients like guyabano, ampalaya, and moringa extracts. With a lot of leafy add-ins and unroasted beans, a cup of Ultra Green Coffee is washed with the taste of matcha and leaves a dash of a chestnut aftertaste on the tastebuds.

5. Dutch Stroopwafel

Bakery Bakery Asia’s Dutch Stroopwafels (P60 per piece) are best enjoyed when served fresh. It’s notably crusty when you munch on it the moment it gets off the pizzelle iron. But don’t let the name fool you, though—they don’t actually use that famed thick and dark Dutch stroop, a tough contender to the Canadian maple syrup. In between the thin and delectably crispy waffles is a scant layer of caramel with cinnamon notes. Overall, it tastes a lot like the usual ice cream cone, but this popular Netherlands delicacy plays it up with other flavors like blueberry, strawberry and peanut butter.

The ends of the Stroopwafel are also trimmed to get that perfect circle shape, and the excess waffle bits end up being sold in 200-gram packs (P40). Just like the favorite Famous Amos cookie crumbs, these are perfect with regular or frozen yogurt and ice cream. The Carmen’s Best “Stroopwafel” flavor is the perfect example of this cinnamon-spiced combo, and Bakery Bakery Asia actually supplies the biscuit bits for this ice cream concoction.

6. Smoked Beef Brisket

One look at Carnivore Cookery’s Smoked Beef Brisket (P170 with rice), and you’ll already see the red badge of honor of any good barbecue. The smoke ring is one of the things you’ll first notice on this 12-hour smoked meat. The second one you’ll note is how much of the charred barbecue taste has seeped in the deliciously chewy beef. Carnivore’s secret rub was inspired by Pittsburg barbecue flavors, and its meat is cooked in makeshift smokers that Carnivore build themselves. The guys at this stall also recognize their usual customers, and, as a bonus treat, gives them more beefy bits—being a true carnivore does have its rewards.

7. Steak Nachos

This is probably the sauciest nachos you’ll ever see. It’s not because Qrazy Quesadilla pours generous amounts of a single dressing, it actually combines four different sauce flavors. Qrazy Nachos (P150) starts with an upgraded salsa, where tomato slices are roasted for a juicier and spiced bite. Three other sauces are then added: Jalapeño Quezo, Sriracha Mayo and Garlic-lime Mayo. To top this towering nacho perfection are herbed carne asada strips and a heavenly melted combination of mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.

8. Pad Thai

There’s an actual word in the Thai language when you can’t find the right words to describe how good a dish is (because sometimes “delicious” just doesn’t cut it)—that word is “zaap.” The Pad Thai (starts at P150) by Zaap by Good Meal Hunting uses rice noodles enveloped in sweet and sour tamarind sauce. The secret to enjoy a good serving of pad thai is to eat it immediately after it’s cooked, with a little bit of fresh ground chilli paste to achieve that traditional Thai spiciness.

Complete your meal with Thai milk tea (P50), it uses the number one Cha Yen brand in Thailand which is Cha Tra Mue.

9. Shabu-shabu

If you happen to crave for a warm bowl of soup, give Ramen Bar’s shabu-shabu noodles (P100) a try. It’s totally different from what they offer in their dine-in ramen joint. In the weekend market, there are 20 different ingredients to build your shabu-shabu bowl from, and their bestselling picks are the cheese ball and crab roe sticks. Each stick only has a few pieces and costs P40. If chicken broth soup isn’t what you’re in the mood for, you can order these seafood and dumpling skewers on its own. There’s beef and pork siomai, snow shrimp, and tofu among the choices.

10. Native Suman

Made fresh every Friday, the kakanin you find in the Saturday weekend market comes all the way from Lipa, Batangas. If you didn’t know there are different kinds of suman, now’s the time to try each of them. Ka Narcing’s glutinous rice cakes are made special by using extra ingredients in your usual suman like cassava, gata, and ube. These sticky treats have just the right amount of sweetness that goes well with a hot cup of drink of your choice.

(This might just be the longest looloo review you'll ever read on my account. I tend to take food reviews a tad bit seriously sometimes 🤗 Congratulations if you read this all the way to this part! Enjoy the Weekend Market!)

I think the market setup has been around for a while, and it has gone through changes. But its latest incarnation is one really worth giving a try for late afternoon to late evening chillax time. I would think that they really want to make it a place for families and extended families as well as barkadas. This is inherent with most of the tables and chairs that can accommodate at least four persons. So many leisure stuff they have setup here like large sized games like bingo chess, dominoes and tic tac toe for people to enjoy. Made me wish they incorporate our very own games like step-no, piko, chinese garter, etc. The park is a near square with most of it covered by tents. The edges of the square are filled with smaller tents occupied mostly by food concessionaires and a few arts and crafts. Live band playing jazz music on a Saturday.

Went here specifically to have my authentic Japanese takoyaki fix from Kentako Takoyaki. I have tried their takoyaki many times, but this is my first review.

I will just put it here now, this joint deserves the highest rating. My experience is nothing less than satisfying. The generous serving of large takoyaki balls that I cannot eat in one go. I always have to slice the balls into halves before eating. You can really see how much effort the people at Kentako put into making this gastronomic delight a reality here in Manila. The painstaking attention to the cooking process, the addition of sauces and extra ingredients is the large portion of making the food really something you return for.

Their latest offering is their best yet! I couldn't help but eat the whole order and crave for more!

A must try! Come visit Greenfield Weekend market which happens late afternoon until late evening Thursday to Saturday. And look for KENTAKO TAKOYAKI. Truly the best Takoyaki in Manila.

My college close friend, V, wanted to put up a stall in a food park / weekend market, so we went to Greenfield Weekend Market to research and do an occular visit.

We went there quite early: I think we were already there by 4+ pm, so there were still lots of seats available. We went around to check the stalls first, and we were glad that most of the food are affordable. Since we were four that day, we ordered a lot of food and we shared them with each other, so we can try more dishes.

The most noteworthy stall for me was Viet Taste. I love their Goi Cuon aka Fresh Spring Rolls (Php 149). An order has 4 big pieces (pardopn my photo hihi), with their spiced vinegar on the side. Each piece is around 6 inches long, and each bite is bursting with flavor! The authenticity of the flavors really made me giddy with each bite. 128525 The wrapper was not too thick, and the amount of vegetables and shrimps as filling were very generous. The vermicelli noodles were also cooked perfectly. The vinegar made each bite taste even better! I prefer having my spring rolls with vinegar instead of peanut sauce. 128513

I love how authentic their food is as the owners are Vietnamese nationals (a mix of students and professionals), and apart from that, I learned that they sell these food items to raise money for charity! How great is that, right? Each purchase will make your tummy happy, and your heart even happier when you realize that your payment will be put to good use. 128076

I love the ambiance of the place, it's more chill that most weekend markets, as the area is quite spacious and there are lots of tables where you can eat your food. There is also live jazz music playing in the background, which adds to the chill vibe of the place. 128156

Overall, this is a weekend market you should check out! 128077

I was still in bed at 9PM and already prepared to go out that night, but most invites were MOA, Valk, & bf pque. Then friends were in Greenfield Weekend Market for the second time in second week, reminded me of this authentic Pho Bo from VIET TASTE Stall. I was sold right at the moment! Got my bag and headed to Crossing from San Mateo, Rizal in an hour (commute ride).

Ordered their PHO BO (BEEF NOODLES) P149 (cheap right?!) they asked if i like to add sriracha sauce. I liked their broth (friend was kidding about how much MSG they put in it. Cuz she worked in Vietnam for 2-3yrs and it was widely known that they put alot of it), noodles were firm, and a lot of BEEF SLICES! (I realized it when I ate it the following day - takeout!)

and I also ordered FRIED SPRING ROLLS for P119 (fresh spring rolls were soldout) - It tasted authentic spring rolls (from BUN CHA we ate in Hanoi) I liked the viet taste better than all "fastfood" vietnamese restaurants like PHO HOA (meh!). Tho the wrapper is not as crispy.

Basically, Im happy they have served and offered "AUTHENTIC" Vietnamese Cuisine here at Greenfield District, cooked and served by VIET NATIONALS!

Worth the visit!

Look at the dramatic effect of lightning on this very filling toasted waffle sandwich (bacon, cheese, pineapple, breaded chicken fillet, and etc) !!!! 128518 This one's pretty good (though not mine) but I'd like it more with less mayo and mustard(?) 128517 My waffle sandwich was basic - chicken fillet with TLC. We were too full for dessert 128517

The variety of food choices, the option of having a picnic kind of set up, with a live playlist of jazz and blues - it's one sweet escape from restaurants and malls in the city 128524

Quite a lot of finds here too! Paintings, accessories and trinkets, vintage collections, notebooks and etc, and organic goodies!

FINGERFOOD : Nachos overload, jalapeno sticks, wings (try the whisky wings), fish n' chips, ++

Went to Greenfield last last Saturday. Glad we were able to find it. It's our first time there. We went there because I'm going to buy lanterns from our fave Xmas lantern supplier , it's our third year now and this time they have a stall here so we have to go here all the way from Marikina.

Glad I saw their stall after I go down the car. The place was nice actually , feels like at BGC too but we didn't stay long. After 15 minutes we left the place already because we still have to go to Powerplant. I heard from my supplier that there were bands at night and hope I could go back again so we can see the whole area but it catch my attention because the place was clean , not that crowded when we get there

I came here with a friend last Saturday to have some good food/good time. Unluckily, I was really hungry when we came here and we’re looking for some places to eat but we couldn’t find any good seats so we settled first at Pancake House for our dinner.

Later on, we came back here to check out some other food. We tried some and one of those would be the Red velvet cake by Cakes by K, which I find good but somehow lacked some kick. Of course, that’s based on my taste. We also had some other snacks around but were just okay or so-so.

I quickly noticed that the string quintet was now accompanied by digital music DJs which makes me miss the pure sound of violin, viola and cello; and then sometimes accompanied by soft piano depending on the song. But anyway, the DJs last night were also playing some nice stuff, and I think they put some modern touch to engage the age of youth with their music choices. Still, nothing can replace the soulful and honest sound of strings in my opinion.

More and more stalls were opening around, maybe because it’s almost Christmas time so people were starting to buy some stuff. Some of the stuff you can see and buy there aside from food and drink are the paintings, some plants, fruits & veggies, indie clothing and other kind of artworks like papier- mâché and customized drawings.

Live jazz band + foodie time with family or friends...it can be fun to spend the evening here once in a while:) Nothing fancy, but oh the simple joys of lights, good music, and a picnic-y set up. There's a mini bar btw, for those who'd like to enjoy a bottle or 2.

2nd time here.

DO NOT MISS :
128525 Fancy Donuts' : ChocolateCookie-something-ball. It's better than DD's munchkins I promise! More like KK's glazed chocolate cake which I love. Soft and chewy, quite grainy and not too sweet.
128525 Bagnet == Bagnet !!!
128525 SGD coffee's espresso
128525 Wings (I forgot the name) but Whiskey is awesome!

FILLING FOOD :
128516 Wrap Battle : very generous portions of fillers! We tried beef nachos and chicken pesto. Nothing special, but hey for 100? This one's huge!

SKIP :
128552 Sisig, not really worth the putokbatok experience

I've been to 3 editions of the Greenfield weekend market on the past weekends. You can taste different cuisines from different food brands all around the metro. They also sell different stuff and art paintings which were all amazing! Also, to avoid boredom, there we have a string quartet serenading the visitors with some classics. You guys should check this out!!! 128522

Went ALL OUT last night (bought tickets for sept 27's concert. bands like Up Dharma Down, Sponge Cola & Silent Sanctuary will be playing! Old school y'all)

Downpour was heavy, which made the experience cool! Bought 3 sets of wings (50/set, 4pcs) Awesome sauce! Whiskey was delicious! and Dynamite Rolls for 75 128076

Wanted to buy more but we were so full already 128517 The selection of food is good - shawarma, pizza, mex wraps, bagnet, steak, etc. 128561 Sadly, it was raining last night and we didn't have the chance to feast on different picks.

PS: There's a live jazz band by the way. Saxin' playing all night 128525

Had a chance to drop by one evening and check out their weekend bazaar. They have fewer food choices compared to Mercato but I loved those that we tried. We had authentic Turkish Shawarma, Ribeye Steak, Dynamite, and fresh fruit juices. :)

We were able to sample homemade donuts, crispy belly, and other stuff.

It's a must visit if you're near the area. Besides food stalls, they also have fresh produce, art, clothes and accessories for sale among others. You can bring mats to sit by the grass as they are limited tables and chairs. Oh they have good music too. They had a string quartet playing good covers of pop songs the night we visited. ;)
