Midnight Mercato @ The Fort

Friday, February 18, 2011 Unknown 0 Comments

Later tonight, and the succeeding nights of every Friday and Saturday from 11PM - 3AM, you can finally satisfy your taste buds for new food discoveries. Just go over at the corner of 30th Avenue and 9th Street, Bonifacio Global City and look for the big tent that says Mercato Central. Welcome to Midnight Mercato!

Discoveries should always be personal. So instead of me showing you food stalls and dishes I came across, let me present you with some photos Mel and I took.

Only 1 tent was set up. Maybe in the next coming weeks, the other tent at the back will be full as well. The good thing about the setup last week we went was that there were ample tables for everyone to sit and eat comfortably.

Outside were mostly grilled food items

Once you get there, you can't help but to buy and try out some of the food items.

We bought mochi ice cream

We also purchased some black rice and organic soya bean

The last thing we bought were some roasted macadamia nuts that were still shelled. Removing the macadamia from its shell is the one of the things I look forward to. There's just something exciting about the experience of separating the shell using the metal sheet tool.

However, when we got home, we were quite disappointed to find most of the macadamias brown. We weren't sure if it was already bad so we didn't eat it. We called up the seller and told us to go back and get another fresh pack.
