I think 2017 was the year that the Food Park concept really took the metro by storm. Dropping by a food park makes me feel like im in Disneyland or something to that effect, but my problem is, living in the Philippines, we usually have to deal with the heat. Which is sort of why I tend to prefer the Food Hall concept more than the park.
The difference, you ask? AIR CON.
It may sounds like a small difference, but believe you me, its often a deal breaker for me when deciding where to eat.
Which is why I was excited when I heard about Industrie Food Loft. With a whole bunch of exciting gastronomic purveyors, housed under one air-conditioned roof? Count me in!
And the best part? It's located in Ortigas, which is located near me!
Here's a quick review of some stalls I was able to try during my first visit to Industrie Food Loft.
Glancing at the menu of The Broken Oven made me think that this was a menu specifically developed for The Pickiest Eater In The World. As my eyes darted around the menu board on their stall, everything sounded more awesome than the next. Delicious sounding comfort food, given innovative culinary twists that make it even more mouthwatering.
Just looking at the Slow roasted Pork Belly Roll on the slab was more than enough to bring butterflies to my stomach. I could see how it was stuffed with lemongrass, that this was going to be a remarkably flavorful dish.
The 250 Grams order of Roasted Pork Belly (P250) was incredibly filling. As expected, the meat was just full of that fragrance from the lemongrass, and the skin had a glorious crunch with every bite I took. It came with Chimichurri and Vinegar as the dipping sauces, but truth be told, it was delicious the way it was.
Another item that intrigued me from Broken Oven's Menu were the Kanin Balls. I have a fondness for the Italian Arancini, and this was a Filipino version of it, but of course, mixed with the trademark Pinoy creativity.
The Lechon Truffle Kanin Balls (3pcs for P180) were nothing short of AMAZING. It was packed with Roasted Pork bits and rice, rolled into a ball and covered in an herb breading before being deep fried. All you need is one bite to discover that the delicious infusion of truffle was unmistakable.
