Food parks are booming right now. From what probably out as a concept based from Mercato, more and more establishments like that soon followed with themes more creative than ever. Now, people– barkadas and families alike– are enjoying the diversity of food located all in one place, the uniqueness of the park, and, of course, the instagram-worthy moments.
If you want to try going to one but you’re on a budget, don’t fret. We curated a list of food parks you can survive (and enjoy!) with just PHP 150.00! Check them out:
Gastro Park Infinity Kapitolyo
Where it is: 1603, Pasig Blvd, Pasig, 1603 Metro Manila
What you can expect: Intimate, neon-inspired food park. You know how neon-based photo techniques are in nowadays? Yup! You can do it in this secluded eatery!
The Yard at Xavierville
Where it is: 83 Xavierville Ave, Quezon City, Metro Manila
What you can expect: Theme: Garage-Junk-Yard fiasco. As you can see in the facade, you can expect that the inside would look as grunge-y and that’s the beauty of it. The Yard can go as high as three floors of metals, barrels, fences, and, of course, good food.
Where it is: Blk 5 Lots 19 & 20, Don Faustino, Quezon City, Metro Manila
What you can expect: By-the-garden picnic. North Hive is an enclosed food park with a garden-like interior. It’s spacious and has around 20 concessionaires. In fact, it’s so spacious that they’re planning to build a life-size chess and jenga to entertain their guests! Bonus: They have samgyupsal. I mean, who has ever seen a samgyupsal in a food park?!
Pioneer Street Market
Where it is: Reliance St, Mandaluyong, Metro Manila
What you can expect: Food park meets weekend bazaar. Pioneer Street Market is an all-in-one food park that makes it perfect for families. You can buy different goods and produces and dine-in if you’re already feeling peckish since they have many picnic tables around. If you’re not convinced to go here yet, they are air-conditioned. Worth it!
Carnival Food Park
Where it is: Gil Fernando Ave. Sto. Niño, Marikina City
What you can expect: Carnival fun. We’ve always seen carnivals in the US on our television screens and we, if not all, would want to experience it. If you think that the US is too far to go to, Marikina’s distance isn’t so bad for a carnival-inspired food trip. This food park is all about bright colors, amazing food, and, for sure, instagrammers everywhere!
Where it is: 43 Malingap, Diliman, Lungsod Quezon, 1101 Kalakhang Maynila
What you can expect: Food x Beer x Art. Sagul’s market are those who’s looking for a place to just drink and be merry in. With their abundance in beer and ‘pika-pika’, it’s an absolute match with the live singers they hire. Being with friends, drinking beer and eating good food, while listening to soulful singers? That’s something!
Food Haven at 77
Where it is: 77 W Capitol Dr, Pasig, 1603 Metro Manila
What you can expect: Museum-like Food Park. Is it a museum? Or a food park? It’s both! This may be the first food court in the country where they mainly highlighted the art they curated. As guests enjoy their delectable food, they can go around and appreciate the art around. Just be careful not to dirty the art, though!
The Truck Food Park
Where it is: 8 Mayor Gil Fernando Ave, Marikina, 1800 Metro Manila
What you can expect: Food trucks. The Truck Park’s design is similar to a truck and once you go in the enclosed food place, you’ll be greeted by a lot of food. Marikina is relatively far, but it’s worth going to!
Space Food Park
Where it is: 240 Menlo, Maynila, Kalakhang Maynila
What you can expect: Astral galaxy. Being relatively near universities such as DLSU, CSB, Arellano, etc., this galactal food park easily entices customers with its interior. You would be able to see the moon, stars, spaceships, and many, many more. Needless to say, their food and beers are ‘out of this world’. Pun intended.
The Yard Underground
Where it is: Christian Route cor. Hillcrest Drive, Pasig
What you can expect: London subway. The Yard Underground gets its name from its aspiration to imitate the vibe of London subways. The design is similar to The Yard at Xavierville, but this food park is more modern and intact. Nonetheless, the food is as superb as its predecessor!
What’s your favorite food park? What’s the most worth it at its price? Share it to us and comment below!
PS: My personal favorite is The Yard at Xavierville! Go there when it’s not peak hour/day so you and your friends could seat and appreciate the chill environment and amazing food! 😉
