Midnight Mercato @ BGC

Mercato, an Italian word for market, has known to be a different take on just a place for buying assorted stuffs.

Angel and I, together with some blogger friends had a chance to go to Midnight Mercato after we watched a movie. Midnight Mercato is the newest late night weekend food bazaar for everyone. This food haven, according to the organizer (who also organized Mercato Centrale) is a place to meet all late night food cravings. Midnight Mercato, which is inspired by the night markets and hawkers center of HK, and SG, offers a wide selection of good food for almost anybody. The place is divided into two areas, the airconditioned tent and the outside tent.

Rairaiken Ramen House and Sushi Bar

In the Beginning

The origin of Rai Rai Ken is rooted in Old China. The word "Rai Rai" means welcome in Chinese and Japanese, while "Ken" means restaurant. The Japanese people who developed this into an authentic fine food concept would like to show that this two words combined creates a place where we can expect to be pampered and satiated with delicious and appetizing foods.

Hainanese Chicken and Beef Noodle Soup in Makansutra

Angel and I spent dinner in Makansutra, the Asian Food Village in Manila Ocean Park while waiting for the fireworks last February 2. This is not the first time that we ate here. Family loved the place and the food. Our dinner was light because we are not that hungry and most of the dishes that we wanted is for group :)

The Hainanese Chicken Rice (p160) is one of my fave dish and I love it in Makansutra. The chicken is well cooked and the rice is deliciously cooked in chicken broth. Below are the sauces to choose from, I think it spicy, soy sauce and ginger.

Angel ordered Beef Noodle Soup (p160) because his head is aching and he needed something hot to sip. Beef Noodle soup is his fave. The aroma of the noodle soup is enough to satisfy one's hunger. The beef is tender and the noodles they use is perfectly cooked, Al Dente! The soup is very tasty too!

Try Hainanese Chicken Rice, Beef Noodle Soup and other Asian Cuisine at Makansutra.

Kabigting's Halo Halo

I was in Pampanga last weekend to visit a family close to my heart, Ate Gigi, Ptr. Jonjie and Jared. Ate Gigi, always surprise me with great food finds in their area. Pampanga is known to be the culinary capital of the Philippines. Their food products ranging from ordinary to exotic never fails to make a person crave for more.

Ate Gigi treated me and Ate Marie for merienda since we were still full from having lunch in Luk Foo. We checked out Marquee Mall and headed to Kabigting's Halo Halo.

Kabigting's Halo Halo (p60) originated from the town of Arayat. Kabigting's Halo Halo differs from other Halo Halo simply because of the ingredients they use for their concoction. Unlike other Halo Halo, Kabigting's only has a few ingredients. But it doesn't limit the delicious taste of the dessert. Instead of the usual, sago-gulaman-ube-monggo-nata type of Halo Halo. When you dig in you will only find corn, sweet beans and pastillas. The sweetness of this Halo Halo is very special because instead of sugar, the plain ingredients is sweetened in advance.
You might notice the whiteness of the Kabigiting's Halo Halo, this is because instead of using evap or condense milk, they use Carabao's milk for a more fine taste. The pastillas is a very delicious addition to the Halo Halo.

Love the interiors also. They have a touch of a Filipino home. The chairs and even the table no. has letter "K" as their motif. They also offer other merienda selection such as Palabok, Arrozcaldo, Dinuguan, Fresh Lumpia, Pitchi-Pitchi, Siomai, Puto and Toasted Bread.
