  • Experience the Ultimate Street Dining Experience at Mercato Centrale!
  • Tired of your usual go-to dining place? Looking for something new and cheap? In countries like Singapore and Thailand, night markets and night food stores are part of your touristy trip. When in Manila, though, one can try the Mercato Centrale in the posh Eastwood City.

    Located at the back of 1880 Building near Breadtalk, Mercato Centrale is set up every Friday night, offering a variety of food choices from snacks, to main courses, to desserts. Expect a lively crowd at around 6:00 PM to 3:00 AM.

    We were lucky to have tried some of their  yummy offerings. We even spotted Master Chef 3rd placer Chef Ivory Yat with her very own food stall, “Levante”. We tried their baked chicken with aglio olio pasta for only P150. It took a while to serve but it was definitely worth the wait. Another option includes the newest trend in drinks: milk tea for around P60-P100 at the Bumble Tea. Cakes and pastries are also available for an affordable price of P100. Aside from those, you can also try their hamburgers, shawarma and some Korean food options.

    Dining there can be a bit challenging, though, because the space can be a little packed due to employees in the night shift having their lunch there and to foodies who are curious about what Mercato has to offer.

    For those who are not from the Quezon City area, you may want to visit the Mercato Centrale at BGC Taguig located near St. Luke’s Medical City.
