Food park or parks are my guilty pleasures. Not only are they affordable but they are becoming homes of the best food stalls that serves delicious and Instagram-worthy foods.
Need I say more?
I had the chance to visit one of the newest and only food parks in Tomas Morato with my best friend and I was delighted that it sits just around the neighborhood. How cool is that? This park is just along the Alejandro Roces Avenue so it wouldn’t be hard to miss.
This place opens at 12 noon but my best friend and I took the risk to go here at around 5. We thought it would be completely packed with no place to sit anymore but we were really glad that we went just before people started coming.
If you’re someone who lives near the neighborhood, I suggest you take the cab because there’s not much parking space. The front of the food park can only accommodate few cars and if you’re driving a jeep or SUV then you’ll have even more hard time to fit it in.
I had to park my car few walks away and the road was too narrow so I got a little stuck before I was able to park properly. I also was a little anxious all throughout the night because there was no guard on the area where I parked my car and it was a little dark.
P.S. I really would like to applaud their Facebook page because they answer to queries really quick which helped a lot especially for a first-time visitor like me. #Yay
This place got packed when we were about to go home at around 10. The bar is upstairs in an air-conditioned room. We tried to get a seat upstairs just outside the bar but the security guard told us that it’s exclusive for people who would drink. We could sit there and bring our food if we want but we have to buy something at the bar which we didn’t do so off we went downstairs.
When we were able to secure a spot in the middle, which is the perfect spot because it is a lot cooler, literally cooler, we started food hopping.
The first food stall that caught our sight first was this little thing with their banner that says ALL YOU CAN. Not a big fan of shrimp but I am really down for some tempura madness, especially with such low price.
But as much as we wanted to get our fix of unlimited tempuras, we didn’t want to get full soon and would want to try other stalls too. So, we ordered the Tempura Bucket. It was delicious and addicting. The downside for this stall is that during our visit, the vendor told us that they don’t have everything that is on the menu. The tempura duo, chili cheese, and IKEA fry weren’t available which sucks big time because we really were craving for some fried chilis and onion rings. But hey, I was not complaining about the tempura bucket.
Next on the list is this little taste of street food. They have a variety of street foods and they also sell grilled corn cobs. We ordered barbecue for P60 a stick and it was good. Although I was expecting vinegar for the sauce, they gave us something else that could be a Mang Tomas. I can’t really tell because I didn’t taste it. Just really not perfect for the barbecue.
I really like their concept of incorporating the infamous pedicab or bicycle because it really suits their theme. Almost as if they just arrived after maglako.
Last but not the least on our list is this Mexican food stall. Just really sad I wasn’t able to take a picture of the entire stall. But hey, their props are so creative and colorful.
What we ordered and enjoyed here was the cheesy Quesadillas. The cheese was melting in the soft pita. It was just perfect.
We also ordered fish ‘n chips from It’s a Good Friday. Too bad I forgot to take a picture. Anyway, their fish was yummy. It melts in your mouth and the dip was good too.
Got us some pink lemonade for P50 to wash down our food. Just sad that they don’t have enough stalls for drinks. Would be nice to have some shake.
The foods are amazing and I am completely happy that we were able to taste almost everything. We totally enjoyed going here and would most probably go back again and again and again.
How about you? Any food parks you want to recommend?
