Manila, My Manila: Popping the Mercato Cherry

9:22 PM

Finally stepped into the grassy grounds of Mercato last Saturday night. I went with my guy friends to Midnight Mercato to have a bite of what it offers. Truly, eyes and stomachs will be full by the end of the night.

You can come to the place fresh but you can leave feeling like you've been cooked together with the rows of grilled burgers and steaks. So make sure you wear your comfiest clothes. Although some were dressed up for partying so we're guessing they will be heading to the nearest bar after munching on those sandwiches.

Mercato at peak hours is not exactly haven for a girl who hates crowded places. You have to keep your eyes sharp and open to grab a seat. Best of luck if you're in large groups. Nevertheless, once you've settled in your table you can start hording food. Do not buy food before finding a table. Chances are your food is already cold before you find a table. It is not recommended that you go too late since the good stuff might already be out of stock.

We weren't able to try a lot of the food but I loved the small tacos. I'll try the cheese steak and big burgers next time. You know how sometimes the first time tends to be quick, painful but not that memorable? This is one of those times. I was there, saw what it had to offer but I'm craving to be back to try it some more and have a better experience. It was so hot that night due to the great number of people. Food stalls tend to change per weekend so it will be a different experience per visit.

At least I got my dose of Mochiko.

Midnight Mercato can be found at 34th street and 8th avenue (across MC Home Depot) in Bonifacio Global City. Parking is at a fixed rate of Php30.00.
