We just went around to see what foods are being sold, then on our first stop, the stall told us that they are not... More

A place for food lovers. Variety of food available - japanese, italian etc. Desserts also available. Place is near Forum and Icon Plaza. No parking available, risky to park on sidestreet you might be towed. Price is so cheap.

If you're in BGC and can't decide where/what to eat, this is the perfect place. The variety of food is outstanding, but the quality not so much. I can barely think of something I ate here that was really good. And for the price, you can definitely find something better elsewhere. The crowd is usually a mix of office workers... More

I prefer the night market over Salcedo Village or Legaspi. Its at night so its a bit cooler than during the daytime. stalls are more spread out. Prices are good, then again I'm from the US so things seemed cheap. I loved the desert lady who had Brazo de Merced.. yum.

If you live or work in the business district of BGC, then Mercato Centrale is just a few steps away from you. But for a person like me, this place was out of way. It was like going in a food trip. I did not try everything from it but I bought a bento of sausage, bagnet and egg. To... More

Wondered what the hype was about to tried dining one evening with my hubby. The food selection was so-so yet pricey. Nothing spectacular.

This is my workmates and I's go-to place when we just want to chill and dine. I must agree that the food is somewhat pricey but there is a wide variety to choose from so you can always decide which ones are worth your money. It will take you quite some time to get tables and chairs since most of... More

A Food Bazaar situated outdoors which offer a myraid of food stalls from Filipino bbq, hamburgers, bagnet, churros and fruit drinks. Healthy eaters may be disappointed though as the choices cater more to carnivores and pork lovers. I tried the chicken intenstine, pork ears/cheeks, fried squid balls from T BBQ. If I weren't worried about my cholesterol I would have... More

FOOD: What we tried and our verdicts: Ultimate philly cheese steak - for a price of P150, I was expecting a sandwich full of steak and loaded with cheese. Boy was I disaappointed! Lechon cebu (beside the cheese steak stand) - this one is okay. We bought a round food container full of shredded Lechon meat and skin. Took it... More

Mercado used to be a good and fun place to visit for a late night meal. Unfortunately, there are now too many stalls. The food aren't so great as well and overpriced. I think maybe the rental is so high that the business owners reflect this with the price of their goods. But we are not getting our money's worth... More
