THIS PLACE + LOCAL 127866127866 = 100841008410084

F and I ended Octoberfest here surrounded by our very own local beer brewers 128522 I was both excited for the beer and the food. The food actually can be a little overwhelming #nalulaakosadami #angsaraplahat 128517128517

🔹 Takoyaki (70php) -- 110881108811088️ Four pcs. Taste was okay, it had more batter than squid or whatever savory na dapat meron

🔹California Maki (80php) -- 11088110881108811088️ It's affordable and filling.

🔹Joe's Brew: Sierra Madre -- 1108811088110881108811088

🔹Merry Moo's Avocado Ice Cream -- 11088110881108811088️ Very creamy and the avocado taste is very flavorful

Great ambiance and live music 128521 127926

Late nights on a weeknight calls for some good midnight snacks! Whenever I'm around the area, I like visiting Mercato for their wide variety of delicious food.

At first I wanted to go for their soup noodles 127836 but on second thought, I didn't want to feel bloated because it was so late. Maybe I'll try it next time.

I ordered the following:
While strolling around, I saw a long line on the 128025 TAKOYAKI stall and made the line longer 128514
Batter • Octopus • Tempura scraps • Pickled Ginger • Green Onions
Takoyaki is ball shaped Japanese 🇯🇵 snack made of wheat flour based batter and cooked in a special moulded pan. It's similar to the okonomiyaki but in a mini size version. I loved everything about it. Maybe because I'm biased since I love Japanese food so much. Also, you get four big pieces for only P70. Not bad for a fulfilling snack 128077🏻

128036ISAW [P35 Single • 3 for P100]
Their isaw is GIGANTIC! At one point in time, I stopped eating this because I had an experience wherein the isaw was not fresh anymore so the texture felt too sandy and the taste was too bitter. But this one doesn't have any of those characteristics at all. It was very clean and the marinate was delicious 128069

127846MERRY MOO ICE CREAM
Merry Moo had a lot of flavors I haven't tried before like 127856 Strawberry Shortcake, 127851Salted Chocolate, and 127821 Toasted Almonds and Pineapple. But I wasn't on the adventurous mode that time so got something familiar: Sea Salt Caramel and Earl Grey Tea. Their sea salt caramel wasn't the best I've tried so I'm going to pass on that the next time. But I loved the Earl Grey Tea flavor! It was so light and yummy. It also leaves a nice after taste that I liked 128524

If you guys do want something heavier than what I had, I heard their ribs, frank sandwiches, and noodles were good too. Price is quite affordable as well. Place was packed as usual. Somehow this place doesn't die down. Good job Mercato 128077🏻

1 hashtag: #baconfestph!!! Pwede rin #BAEcon haha

How can you not love bacon??? It goes with alnost anything! Awesome event with almost every stall selling a bacon variant of their typical fare. And some even came up with totally new limited offer dishes just for the evening. For a bacon lover like me this was a treat! Though i think i tasted too much bacon for one evening, naumay narin ako. 128517

From top to bottom, left to right:
Bacon Cheese Fries by Ultimate Cheesesteak
Bacon Rolled Lasagna by Bhest Lasagna
Bacon Bomb by Surfries
Bacon Cup by Ace Cuisine
Bacon BBQ by Dadding's Kitchenette
Fluffy Puffy by Creamco Creamery
Liege Waffle w/ marshmallow, almonds, caramel, oreos, and bacon bits by Pastry Shack

My favorites would be the:
Bacon cup - a literal cup made of bacon, filled to the brim with mac n cheese, then topped with mashed potato "frosting" (like an actual cupcake!)
Bacon BBQ - bacon cooked pinoy bbq style, ingenius!
Liege Waffle - this waffle was loaded with toppings, and the waffle itself was good. Surprised at how they used torched marshmallow instead of whipped cream.

The second pic shows what i had on my previous visit, pre-baconfest haha.

Cheesy hungarian sausage in charcoal baguette by Fronen
Chalupa by Julio's

The sausage was really good. Though i didnt really taste the difference of the charcoal baguette. Tasted like an ordinary baguette to me. Only difference was my 128169 turned black after 128586128517

The chalupa was basically just like a taco but instead of a hard corn shell, you have this fried empanada type of taco shell holding everything together. Worth a try!

Hey Mercato! Its been a while! More than 2 years i think 128562

Glad to be back now that the office is conveniently a few minutes away. Noticed the vendors have changed since then, which is a good thing! More new interesting things to try!

2 booths caught my attention since sila ung pinipilaan that evening. Hence, they must be good! Both had interesting gimmicks that can really catch your attention, but ultimately i think its the quality of their food that deserves a thumbs up.

1.) Cheese Scraper
Ahhhh raclette! I havent had this in a while and missed this sorely. These guys prepare your raclette on the spot with a block of swiss cheese! There are several options and modern twists but i kept mine traditional with boiled potatoes and antipasto. I wasnt disappointed at all. The gooey cheese was and is always the star of the show for this one. Also tried the 7 cheese raclette on their spicy aglio olio pasta. Another winner! 128077

2.) Creamco Creamery
I remember a video that went viral on Facebook of a Thai woman preparing custard on an iced metal sheet by flattening the mixture, mixing in flavors, then making edible mini rolls out of it. Well, this is exactly it! Had the Pocky Road flavor which was custard mixed with a chopped oreo and nutella. Then the rolls are garnished with Pocky sticks and drizzled with a bit more Nutella.

Haha i had my cold custard while waiting for my order from Cheese Scraper right next door. If anything, it does take a while before you get your raclette since they do it on the spot.

Lots of new finds from mercato centrale BGC 128525128523

I. Cheese scraper

I remember an insider post about this from new york and Im glad that we have this now in manila 128524

They heat the raclette cheese wheel from the top until it gets gooey and bubbly and then they scrape off the cheesy goodness all over your pasta or salad 128557128525128523

All cheese lovers will definitely drool on this cheesy scenario 128514

It was my first time to try a raclette cheese and it was good. It has this distinct aroma and taste that goes well with your salad/pasta.

I wish they invest on more heating machines though because the line gets too long. We've waited more than 2 hours for this 128514

Price range is 200-250 for a half scrape and 300-350 for the full scrape.

II. Cream co.

This one is an instant favorite. Crushed banana and cream base and nutella goes really well together 128524.

There was also an insider post about this from japan if I'm not mistaken.

Price range is 130-150 128523

I'm really happy to see the diversity of the food choices now in our food market places. Theres always something new to try and experience 128524128523

Friday nights are food coma nights. So tonight, I ordered my regular fave, isaw, which costs 3 for 100. Not a bad deal huh? Great food at a very affordable price. Can't get any better than that!

It took us a long time before Ony and I went here again because of our not so nice experience before when his laptop got stolen (in their old location). 128557128557 Anyway, we like that their new location is more open now, it's brighter, and I think more safe (hopefully!). We don't really enjoy the food at Mercato because they are mostly just the usual food. Plus they're not really cheap/affordable but there's just something about night markets like this, open spaces, the smell of those grilled barbeque sticks, isaw, the sight of different types of food like shawarma, burgers, rice meals, pasta, bagnet, and crispy bacon. There are also a lot of drinks (fruit shakes, beers, etc.) available. These make us enjoy eating here. I guess it's the chill and carefree vibe. You don't need to dress up here, you can stay here as long as you want after a loooong tiring and stressful work week. It's a great place to just chill, unwind, eat, and enjoy!! 128518

Just look at that lechon belly. Juicy and tender meat, crispy skin, all the right flavors and aroma of lemongrass. I bet you're craving for some right now. It was love at first sight with this baby. I mean, who can say no to it?!

Mercato Centrale moved to a new location by the way just beside Forum in BGC. It's not hard to miss. You'll see tents and different kiosks. For drinks, try the Strawberry Lemonade (35 pesos)

Our last Mercato BGC experience was several years ago when they were still located near S&R. They have moved to the empty lot in front of that building with the astronaut painting. Since we were in the area, we decided to check it out.

There were so many food stalls that we circled around several times before getting anything. We were still full so we had to pass on the rice meals which looked so tempting.

On the table
🔹Dying Burger from Hunger Buster - big, juicy and tasty burger w/ bacon, mushrooms and cheese. Although I couldn't taste the bacon, it was so worth the P100 we paid for it.
🔹Fish Balls, Pork Bbq and Isaw - ordered from the stall w/ brown wooden trays where you put the items that you want. It took more than 10 minutes and they seemed confused and disorganized. The fish balls were oily and not toasted like we requested. All of the things we got weren't hot anymore. This was challenging to eat standing up since food were on sticks, paper plates and the small glass of vinegar was soft. I had to use my teeth to slide down the meat to the end of the stick to dip them in vinegar.
🔹Edgys Foodtrip - they served cold bottled juice at p35 a bottle or 3 for P100. The Dalandan Juice and Wintermelon were great! Wintermelon was kinda sweet.
🔹Wadoughs - gravitated towards this stall because they served Liquor Infused Desserts. Their That's My Bae-leys was rich and moist. Loved the cute plastic injection that you could squeeze for an extra boost of Baileys

We were too full to eat anything else so we called it a night. I would love to have dinner here one of these days. I just hope we would be able to snag a table.

*BBQ smell stuck to my clothes and hair for waiting too long in that area.
**nearest parking area is The Fort Strip.
***it was breezy and comfortably cool last weekend
****that blackboard was a cute touch. You could declare your fave food finds.

P.S. I wish I had better photos 128513

This was at Mercato Centrale at the open grounds of Glorietta, every Thursday and Friday.
Don't judge ung dami ng order 128584 at kung hindi bagay ung mga dish combo 128518 . Hubby and I wanted to try out a lot , food trip kung food trip 128540.
Shawarma rice and Angus burger (from different stalls) - hubby approved!
I always go to the Vietnamese stall . Their Bahn mi is good, esp the bread. According to the owner, they get their bread from a Vietnamese supplier. Their Iced coffee is yummm! just the right sweetness, not too strong, and its creamy too128523128523128523.
Didn't like the vanilla-caramel crepe cake from the lone cake stall there 128527128078

My college friends and I had a Fear Factor dinner last weekend. The original plan was to eat somewhere in Megamall but everyone arrived late - late as in the-mall-is-closing late. Hahaha

Loved the chicken isaw (I forgot the name of the food stall 128557) and the chicken wings from B.Wings! 🌶127831

They've moved to 7th Ave. cor 25th Street. The location is better than before but has a lot of mosquitos! Slather some mosquito repellant or use one of those mosquito repellant stickers before heading to Mercato.

A lot of new finds since the last time I've been to Mercato. 'Till the next visit! 128522

P.S. Trying to |ooloo again after soooooo loooong! 128522

This review is for Mercato @ Glorietta :)

As usual, a lot of people go here for their dinner. Mercato also gave free movie watching while their customers are waiting for their orders.

We waited for several minutes to find a table and ordered Isaw 128525 for 35 each ;)

We also ordered the double layer pizza for 100 pesos.

We waited for more than 30 minutes for our isaw kasi daming nag-oorder. 128553

Few days after my hub's Birthday when he and I decided to go to Serendra and have a stroll. It was just a plain afternoon, or so i thought. 9786

We were still in the car looking for a carpark when the lights, a good number of crowd, and the presence of Media captured our eyes and made us take a look around the place first before heading to Serendra.

When we got there, na excite ako sa dami ng food available. They have all kinds of Street foods or pica pica...BBQ, Fried Wings, Bagnet, a variety of drinks, and so much more! 128077🏼
But what gives me happiness is the presence of celebrities like Dimples Romana, Cheska Garcia, and Danica. I saw them on stage during their interview with Abs-Cbn staffs. I think it was RJ Ledesma who hosted the event.

Anyway, the event was offered to all malnourished children in the country. They are promoting healthy food cooked at home and I guess some of the proceeds will be given to homeless children.
I was about to post the spicy Chicken wings that I ate but I thought this pic would show more about the event (sorry lang na Isaw ang kasama sa pic!) Lol! 128540

I remember asking one of the owner of a booth stall, he said the Mercatto will be open during weekends till the end of the year and the event was sponsored by Knorr. 128521

We stayed for less than an hour, we couldn't stand the smoke from BBQ grill and sadly ang init na sa loob and parang kulang ang hangin sa dami ng tao at usok. We were done eating na when we decided to leave the place. Surprisingly upon leaving, a crew from ABS approached me and asked few questions on Cam, so why not? Channel 2? Sure!!! Hahahaha! Besides, nakatutok na sa kin ang camera at microphone! 9786

So kahit kinabahan at camera shy ako eh Go na din! 128521 The interviewer asked me about what i ate, how i find the place and the importance of home cooked food. Yay! Di ko na maalala ang mga sinabi ko!

Two hours more sa BGC before kami nakauwi...after that at around 9pm, I received some few messages from my family and friends...they were all screaming and soo happy they saw me on tv! Yay naman! 128525
Up until this moment, may paisa isa akong kakilala na pag nakita ko they'd say they saw me on tv...9786
Ang saya lang! 128077🏼

I used to love this food market a lot.. There's live acoustic entertainment playing while you eat and chat with your companions, you can watch football right beside the tent while you eat, which my bf and I always do, and there's no dress code! Come as you please.. I sometimes go wearing my pambahay. 128522 I know the food that never fails me like the churros, burger, beef salpicao, philly cheesesteak sandwich, gelato, cakes, beers and buko and the others are so so. Anddd the best part for me is the market hours! We can go there after work til 3am! But please Mercato, offer something new. It would be nice to try something that isnt inihaw and the likes. But yeah, this is still a weekend-late night-food trip place for me.

I've always loved this place. 128516 My dad usually brings us here late at night after his busy day at work. My boyfriend and I was planning for so long to visit Mercato since it's going to be his first time there, our first time together 9786 And finally, we had a weekend off from the hectic sched we had in school. Rain was pouring when we went there but that didn't stop us from enjoying the night and of course, the food 128522 The place looked so much better from the last time I went there or maybe because we were just there early 128514

We had Baby Back Ribs which was so good at a very cheap price and Pork with Gravy which tasted so good as well 128077 We were always a fan of street foods so we also had kikiam, fishballs, and isaw (our favorite). I loved everything especially the isaw that didn't have a bitter taste to it. The vinegar was also a great complement to these (kikiam, fishballs, and isaw) 128077 I forgot what was the name of the drink we had but it was a freshly bottled melon juice and I finished two bottles because it was just so delicious 128516 For dessert, I was about to buy the churros but the vendor said the oil wasn't ready yet and might take some time instead I had the Dark Chocolate Ice Cream from Lava Ice Cream Cafe. It's a liquid nitrogen ice cream and was freshly made right in front of me 128516 Loved how chocolate-y the ice cream was.

The place was overwhelming with all the food stalls to choose from. We'll definitely go back again to try other food there 128077 Good food x Affordable price 10084

Ok,
This is the place if you really don't have any idea to eat at BGC on Fridays and Saturdays. Usual staples like barbecues, makis "organic" stuff and Rosemary chicken of sorts. After that Glenda typhoon, the place became smaller but more organiZed. Would keep going back...
