The sparkling new renovation of Podium Mall opened up opportunities for more shops and restaurants to settle into the bustling Ortigas center. Recently, a sprawling Food Hall opened, named, "The Corner Market". Spanning roughly around 1,200 square meters, The Corner Market is set to house 17 food establishments in its massive halls.
Though not all 17 are operational yet, your friendly neighborhood Pickiest Eater made the ultimate sacrifice for his beloved readers, to try the food stalls that have opened their doors at the Corner Market.. Where good food is just around the corner!
As I entered The Corner Market, it was The Meat Depot that immediately caught my eye. The sizzle of the steaks could be heard from where I was standing, and the aroma of cooked meat was undeniable.
As I studied the line, I saw the customers look through the chiller doors located with the stall.
It was there that I discovered that at Meat Depot, you may choose the cut of meat to your liking and budget. The chiller was filled with different cuts of steaks with gorgeous marbling, plump looking sausages, and I could have sworn I even saw bacon cut meats in there, which got my mouth watering! Afterwards, you may then request for your specific doneness of the meat, followed by your desired side and sauce.
Their Ribeye Steak was absolutely exquisite, making you feel you were dining at a high end steakhouse instead of a Food Hall in a mall. The steak was remarkably tender and seasoned brilliantly, with the meat bearing gorgeous char marks across it.
Also available was the Chicharom Bulaklak, which i recommend for sharing. The Chicharon was nice and crunchy, and paired nicely with the chili laden vinegar it came with.
If you're not in the mood to explore other cuisines at The Corner Market and you're looking for a dependable no-frills meal at a reasonable price, then Meat Depot has definitely got you covered!
Stay tuned for More of my reviews of the restaurants from The Corner Market Food Hall!
