A spooky foodstop encounter for me last night, with just an ordinary plan made possible with the availability of food buddies to accompany me. Quite hyped with infinite foot traffic going inside and that the area was not conducive to those who would bring their cars to park nearby. Good thing uber has a promo code that day and i no longer worry myself from doing so. The setup was just an area with so much more food stops and yet a limited tables to offer. Waited and roamed around for minutes after available table was intended for us. Concepts however are unique with marketing strategy to food concessionaires what to bring to potential customers. There were nachos, blowtorched ribs, flatbread, tempura, korean dishes, subwiches, pica to name a few. Only the negative part is 3 stalls were only the ones providing drinks of which one is epicure, offers alcoholic based beverages served in what they called epic pail. We availed one for an effortless way to have drinks on our table since the gulp stall formed long queues and that milkshake lab was closed that night. No more choice for that. Epicure content was so strong you would want to let ice cubes melt. Puluts offer not so reasonable price for tusok tusok mix for it will cost you php 60.00, quite liked the dynamite which reminded a lot of happy memories, Flat bread was the only good tasting one. Nachos were ok however toppings were not emphasized, not incorporated well in plating, making it odd to see few of beef contents on top. And that's all. For an experience and hang out place i would entirely recommend this one. You should have ordered food meant for sharing for it will help you reduce the consumption. Food parks are all over Metro so might as well give yourself a visit.

It was early October when my best friend and I decided to visit and give The Yard a try.

This famous food park located at Xavierville Street in Katipunan has been talked about by a lot of people for a long while now given the looks of the foodie destination and of course the number of food stall there are.

We went there on a Thursday night and the park was jam-packed with people! The nearest parking space was full. Good thing that they seemed to have rented out the space on the other side of the road that also served as a parking area for other The Yard visitors. There were also parking attendants who were ready to assist us.

Upon entering, the place was really alive and kicking. A lot of people were moving around, checking what the food stalls have to offer. Some were highly energized in singing and moving along with the park's music and of course a lot were doing photo shoots for their blogs and looloo, of course!

We decided to secure a spot first before we moved around to check the food. From tempuras to pizzas to pastas to wings to street foods, Japanese items and desserts like shaved ice, frappuccinos, nitrogen ice creams, etc., you will surely find it hard to decide what to eat and drink so good luck on that.

So as I wasn't too keen on eating loads that night, I ordered a Chicken Burrito for 99php and a Cheesy Chicken Okonomiyaki to be shared with my best friend for 170php. She, on the other hand, ordered a Creamy Fried Chicken Rice meal for 180php as far as I can remember.

The Chicken Burrito was big and heavy given its price so it was really a good deal. The wrap was tasty and even made better by the generous serving of the chicken, beans, rice and vegetables inside. There were two sauces on the side that gave it a yummier flavour.

The Cheesy Chicken Okonomiyaki was so sulit too as it can be shared by almost 4 people, given that all 4 have other orders on the side. It was huge and filled with loads of chicken so it was really filling and could make you feel easily full.

As I wasn't too hungry that time, I accompanied my best friend Marqui S to her dessert place at the second floor of The Yard. It was like fried ice cream and shaved ice altogether but she wasn't too happy about its taste.

Overall, The Yard has a lot of potential and given the way that people are embracing it, it'll definitely come a long way because it definitely has a lot to offer.

The waiting was worth it. Overall, the food catered here are delicious, a bit pricey for some though. You might wanna come early to ensure to get your spot 'cause there are lots of people coming especially on weekends.

The Yard is probably one of the most famous food parks since it started and I can see why. From thee outside, the bright graffiti style of "The Yard" can be seen. We went as early as a few minutes before 4 but the place is already jampacked on a Sunday. It's best to arrive early. We passed by a week ago, on a Saturday night, and people were lining up outside to get a seat. Since it opens at 4 pm, we suggest to go there early as seats are hard to find around 5 already. Most tables are prioritizes or are reserved for those would buy at the stall's food. It's best to sit at a vacant chair from one of those that you think will buy.

HONG KONG FOODIE STREETFOOD 127842127841127842
One of the first items I bought was from Hong Kong Foodie Streetfood. Think Potdog. Since we bought here, this enables us to be able to sit at their tables. For starters, it may be a bit expensive, coming at 40 Php per stick. I ordered shrimp roll (2 pcs per stick), crab claw (2 pcs per stick), and scallop cake (3 pcs). I like the scallop cake the best. Dipped it on their sauce makes it better. I think that from what I had, their winning item is their sauce. It's like it can be paired up with other food besides theirs. Also sad that when we were done eating, it was only then that they took out their lobster ball. 128148

TOKYO TEMPURA127844127844127844
My sister ordered the unli tempura at Tokyo Tempura. Each serving will give you 3-4 pcs of tempura. We tried dipping it on the sauce I got from Hong Kong Noodle and it tasted better than the sauce the tempura came with. The price she paid seems worth it when she went around 4-5 times. The size was a bit small compared to restaurant-sized tempura but the taste is good for its price. I think it's 200? I'm not sure if I heard my sister right.

GULP STATION 127865127865127865
As for those curious for the giant bowl, it's by Gulp Station. Probably one of the first things a curios first-time goer would probably love to try. The position of Gulp Station is stratetigically located at the center, easy for all to go and grab a drink of. We chose the raspberry iced tea flavor and 4 straws. The price is only 120 and lasted up until we finished. Pretty affordable since there are four of us. Other flavors that we saw that day were probably blue lemonade, pink lemonade, and green iced tea. People were lining up and getting their fish bowls of drinks. I also put our picture for comparison of jars to out heads. 128517

WAFF127850127851127850
The youngest ordered the smoreflles from Waff. It looks so sweet at first glance. For any sweet-tooth lover, this one is a must-get. I love waffles and having melted marshmallows and chocolate syrup on top is heaven. It may seem small but I think the serving size is just right because if it's too big, it'll be nakakaumay. Price for the smoreflles is 120, if I heard my sister correctly.

THE BLACK PLATE127833🌯127832
There are several Japanese stalls at the yard and the one I tried was the black plate. Why? Burrisushi. Just think that you're eating giant maki or sushi that has a size of a burrito. For a safe choice, I chose Ocean Avenue. It's like your standard california maki but it has shrimp katsu added, which is my and my boyfriend's favorite part. You can have it divided to 4. You can share with others or with just yourself. The divided part can be eaten within 3-4 bites. Of course it's best to eat it from the side of the vegetables up to the side of the kani and shrimp katsu, where the flavors burst in your mouth. Priced at 180, I think it's worth it. It's also heavy on the tummy so if you want to be able to eat more food, it's best to share this.

ALL ABOUT FRY DAY 127839127839127839
For those wondering where to get fries, all about fry day serves fries with different toppings. We got building fries that has beef, gravy, and cheese sauce. We all thought it tastes familiar but we are unable to point out what.

BERLINER'S GRILL (UNPICTURED) 🌮🌯🌮
Berliner's grill offers Döners. Think shawarma but different. Instead of using a tortilla, I think they used pita bread. I only took a few bites because it was spicy and I'm not good in handling spicy flavors. He had the beef döner. It was good and if it probably wasn't so spicy, I would've got one myself too. I'm not sure it was spicy by default or my boyfriend added a lot of spicy sauce on it.

🍽🍽🍽🍽

Eating here will lead you to a food coma. It's also best to come here early so that you'll get a parking space if you have a car and that you'll be able to grab a seat. After leaving our table, two groups were already waiting for our table. Service may be a bit slow since they'll only prepare food upon your order. Just like other food parks, some will have their food delivered to you. They'll ask where you're seated and they'll come to you. If you want to taste a lot, it's best to share your food. Get food items that you think you'll be able to share too. Despite having good food, only giving the place a 4 because the space can be quite crowded and chairs and tables are too close. Parking is a suffering too. Once the parking at the front is full, you'll be asked to park in front of Metrobank. We paid 50 Php at the barker to watch out the car. You'll need to pay upon parking too.

Besides this, I would certainly come back since we've only tried out a few items and we'd want to try others too. 128523

The Yard has been around for quite a while but it was only a few hours ago that I was able to visit. Among the food parks I've been too, I think I like this the most in terms of design. To be able to accommodate more stalls, they were able to put up a 2nd floor.

While this food park is likable, there are some undeniable nuisances. The place gets congested, and it is very difficult to find a parking space. In photo is the scene when we arrived at around 9pm on a Sunday. Parang walang pasok ng Lunes. To avoid this, I suggest coming early so you can eat in peace. Finding a parking space is a challenge since there are only about 5 slots in front of their lot. For convenience, might as well take a cab/Uber/Grab.

The coolest foodpark that brings family and friends together .

Eat.Drink.Mingle.Music.Play

Went here last Aug 18 in the evening after my event at my son school in Katipunan. After hubby fetched me, I convinced him to come with me at the Yard. The traffic is terrible , then parking was so hard to , we parked at the next street , near metrobank , someone will assist you, need to pay 50 bucks right away then you have to walk pa to go to the Yard.

That Friday evening , Yard was so full! Sisikan and that feeling that we want to back out. When I saw the pics on social media sites , it's like you want to try them but since it's over crowded,can't see the beauty in it. No available seats. We got pissed off dahil sayang ang punta. There was second floor, we saw Cajita. They sell churros. Para di sayang pumunta we had it for take out.

Noticed that most of the customers or crowd were teens, it's not for us maybe, given a chance will be back I'll make sure di na crowded so we can really enjoy to look at what's best stall to eat there.

It's definitely for students. Budget friendly foods.

Here's from Subwich Factory. As they claimed, their ingredients still came all the way from Baguio. The sandwich served to us is almost 320php good for sharing to your barkada :)

I wasn't able to taste the Zero Vox from the Ice box as we were in a hurry for the next event. But here's a foto then

Went there on a Sunday night around 9pm and there's no place to park. It's very crowded, it took me an hour to find a seat. 128546
Tried Black Plate and Ice Box only due to very long queues. There's still so much to try. I will definitely come back! 128522

Loved the place and the crowd. Amidst the heavy rain, people still flocked this food park. You can really see how joyful Filipinos are when they gather for food!

We tried different stalls to try different bestselling dishes. While waiting for our friends, I filled up my tummy with a ribeye steak from Rustic Box Steakhouse. For only P230 I already have a big slab of medium rare ribeye steak. And it was good! The steak was easy to slice and chew. The tenderness showed off its juicy meat. It was delicious. Good choice for me. I also chose rice as a sidedish but you can opt for other sides such as mashed potatoes etc.

My friend Issa tried the Chicharitos of El Chapo's which only costs less than a hundred bucks. It's a small plate of pita bread with sisig as the main ingredient instead of beef shawarma or burrito. The sisig was very tasty but the silantro overpowers the whole flavor. She also bought their Nachos which is a joy to eat as well. The cheese was all over the chips and it also has a generous amount of ground pork on top.

When our friends came, they ordered a platter of yakitori in Niku-Q. This is the best! I love yakitori! Their sauce, their meats, everything was delicious! They also offer chicken ass and chicken skin. But I loved the bacon in asparagus the most.

We also had fried chicken wings and fried mac n cheese balls from Mac n Chicks! The wings were just alright but the mac n cheese balls were surprisingly good! It really has macaroni inside. And once broken, you can really see the cheese ooze out from the balls. Yummy!

For dessert, of course we tried Dip N' Dough since we were seated in front of it. We bought the 12pcs Mini Donuts for P175. Contrary to the bad reviews about it, we never experienced any. We also loved the doughnuts especially the OG Chocolate dip.

Out of curiosity, I also tried the Milkshake Lab because everyone seems to have a cup of their own. I said I really have to try that one. By the looks of it, everything seems overly sweet. Yet I chose their Smores flavored shake. To my surprise, the milkshake was not that sweet as I expected! The sweetness level is balanced which is a big plus for me. Bo wonder people were lining up to grab a cup.

So far so good. This was a nice experience. Can't wait to go back and try out other stalls. Hopefully they could provide more seats and covered areas to accommodate customers during rainy season.

There's a new kid in town and oh boy its filled with young souls it made me feel old 128117🏻 haha #lolavibes haha moving on here are some of my feed back from the stalls we ordered from

Flat bread

Offer an array of combination of toppings like pizza served in an oval shaped flat bread
We ordered the cheese & garlic flat bread, Ble missing both garlic and cheese,

Niku-q

Name sounds familiar, they sell different yakiniku on sticks, we ordered the asuparabekon which is a bundle of asparagus wrapped in pork bacon strip, grilled and coated with terriyaki sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds, it was good but i'm not a fan of pork

Prawn stars

Bucket of seafoods boiled in a bag coated with your choice of sauce and spice intensity, it was over priced and nothing special, not that tasty too, we paid 210 for a three pieces of prawn, what's up with that

Waff

They offer different varieties of waffle both savory and sweet but choices are not frustrating as they only serve few and distinct flavors that suites whatever mood you have, we had their smoreffles which was a graham waffle with melted chocolate and torched mallows on too, it was good though i prefer to have that liege texture in a waffle, tender and moist rather than crumby and crispy but i liked it.

Epicure

They serve the alcohol in the yard, they have a few varieties if alcohol ranging from commonly sold local beers and the locally brewed beers, to a pail of cocktails, wenordered the cherry lime mojito in a pail for two, it was good and well i wanted for more but le boyfie prefered to have beer instead

Snow creme

Just your ordinary bingsu only it was over priced with less toppings

Dip & dough

They serbe donut creations from mini donuts to slow roasted donut ice cream cones, well their donut are great but the service is bad, they don't seem to have any organization yet especially on crowd control, they had a shortage on donut cones and had to make a dough and slow roast it, it took us two hours to have our order, and what made me frustrated was when i ordered the lady crew told me that i was fifth on the line and that i should go back in 30 mins and so i did, when i got back the guy who i assumed to be the owner told me inwas already fourth and so i waited again for anpther 30mins, when i came back the lady was back as well and i i asked her if mine was done already, she told me i was fifth on the line, wait what? Fifth then fourth then fifth again? So i questioned her, i got a little mad so i just sat it out until my anger subsided, then when i came back after an hour my order was already done, ugh bummer

I didn't like the vibe much, It's kinda crowdy, rain fell really hard and boy we are soaking wet, flooded inside the park, outside the park as well and not enough parking, it creates traffic in xavierville, I was really disappointed, I like GastroPark in Kapitolyo more.

Added to the bad experience was the mini doughnut from Dip 'n Dough, the flour they used is old and so is the oil they fried the donut into, All 6 of us who tasted it agreed that it tasted bad, my boyfriend returned it hoping they will exchange it but after like around 20mins we asked again and they said they don't have donuts anymore and handed my boyfriend 90pesos because we supposedly ate 6pcs already, I was really insulted, we're not after the money, we're hoping to be justified with our complaints, my brother talked to one of the owners I think and told him I'll handle it, if you know me you'll know that I have a really loud voice so he thought I was raising my voice at him and had the gall to ask me to lower my voice, I said I am not raising my voice but I'm really insulted because they didn't even apologized.

I like the chimney ice cream donut they're selling though, it's good and you know that the donuts aren't really.

Charge to experience they say, I really super love Bagnetto, made my night ♡

Hey guys!!! if youre looking for a 'streat foodish' kinda place, they have one in xavierville. The place is great with great food as well. Dont expect to get a place to eat as soon as you get there since it's jam packed everyday especially dinner and lunch...parking is limited also.

So we went here last night and it was super last minute before we head home to laguna. the place is not that easy to find but we were able to track a shortcut with the power of asking every people we see along the way. so we got there around 8pm and was shocked because i was expecting a big place with lots of parking space but we had to find a closed store to park. luckily we got to park our car at metrobank after 10mins. of waiting. so we went straight inside after i snap a photo of its amazing signage outside welcoming you. And after that we went inside and i tried the kebab w/ out rice, it was the very first store you'll see when you get there so i got curious about it and try if it has the authentic taste. so far it was okay for a start, but you need to add more sauce because the beef is not seasoned well that you need to put more salt in it. saw the girl sitting beside us asking for more salt. then after that my husband went to takami and ordered an okonomiyaki because he's been craving for an authentic okonomiyaki but sadly we can't find one in laguna. the owner's mom was very hands on to customers she even took a picture for their page and proudly telling us that it was her daughter's business and their okonomiyaki was great! and it was indeed great! i love it because it has cheese! but i don't know what my husband's standard taste for an okonomiyaki. lol. because he's not satisfied i might bring him to japan instead! after that we went upstairs and went down again because we were looking for DIP AND DOUGH. but i have seperate review for them out of my disappointment so please check it out. then after that we saw "MILKSHAKE LAB" and we were curious if that is the same milkshake lab near our place coz they have the same concept and they were also selling milkshakes so i ordered a caramel pecan milkshake and it was good! although it was the usual ice milkshake not the ice cream milkshake that i was expecting but surprisingly the taste is still great maybe they are using imported powders unlike the other one i've tasted around manila and laguna. so all in all the entire foodtrip was okay. the food here was instagram worthy but some of the food we tried was just okay. and we realized that the ambience of the place was really a factor. but it was a great experience though all the way from laguna! 128076128076128076

Me and my friends decided to go to The Yard last night, from Marikina we drove for about 10-15 minutes to reached Katipunan. Full parking! Pak! Fortunately, we found one in the nearby building.

First time and when I saw The Yard! Boom! I was amazed with the set up, it's like you are in the underground with lot's of food store inside. Inside you can choose anything you want as long you have money to pay (Don't worry it's affordable)... From Japanese, Mexican, Pinoy, American, Korean, Italian... Desserts, Snacks, etc. LOTS OF VARIETIES!

Definitely I will going back again in this two floor food hall, The Yard located in Xavierville, Katipunan, Quezon City to try the other food stores.

Went out to try this new food park at Xavierville! It looks like all the other food parks already in existence. The outside looks like an old warehouse haha. The inside is a mish mash of a bunch of food stalls with strung up lights between them and some tables in the middle. There's also a second level with more food stalls.

Parking is kind of limited, but they have staff to help you out. Trash bins are available and the staff also help in cleaning up after you've eaten, although it's still nice to clean as you go haha. There are also bathrooms available.

There are a bunch of food and drink options so it won't be that hard to find something you'd like. I guess the hard part would be limiting yourself 128514
