Whenever I go to a food park or a food hall, I always suffer from tunnel vision. I find myself lost in the sea of choices, and it often takes me forever to decide on what to order. Never has that ever rang true more, than when I strolled around newly opened Malingap Central Food Hall. Carefully curated by none other than Celebrity Chef Edward Bugia, best known for his work in restaurants such as Pino, Backyard, and my personal favorite, Pi: Breakfast and Pies, the line up of stalls at Malingap Central Food Hall ensures there's something special for every palate.
First off, let me just say that I love how Malingap Central Food Hall is air-conditioned, with Parking slots available (first come first served, of course). With Malingap being the food haven that it has become in recent years, parking has become scarce but, Malingap Food Central took that into consideration, and allocated slots for their customers. With its colorful tones, the place has a fun and vibrant feel, easily making it one of the coolest and hippest places to hang out in the metro.
Apart from the numerous food choices, customers can also choose from their wide array of beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic as well. They supposedly makes mean Frozen Margaritas, which I'm sure my wife is ecstatic to discover for herself.
Here's a quick rundown of the Food Stalls I had the pleasure of trying at Malingap Central Food Hall:
NICE TO MEAT YOU
ALFRED'S ROAST BEEF STATION
INSIDER SCOOP: From what I heard, an Ice Cream stall is coming up soon care of Manila Creamery, as well as a stall that specializes in Korean cuisine!
Best to visit while the prices are at their "Soft Opening" Prices!
