I’ve been hearing people rave about the Mercato Centrale Organic Market and Food Market for months now and it’s only lately that we’ve managed to wake up early enough to actually go and check it out.
Driving all the way to the Fort from Las Pinas early in the morning on a Saturday doesn’t seem like a fun idea.
But finally, last Saturday we were able to enjoy brunch at Mercato Centrale!
Of course, one of our stops was the Jam Foods Angus Beef Tapa booth.
I wasn’t able to take photos of most of the food and vendors, sad to say. It was just so hot that day that all I wanted to do was sit. I didn’t even have an appetite to eat my food because of the scorching heat :(
Of ALL the days, we had to choose the hottest day to go to Mercato Centrale, haha.
I did, however get to take photos of some of the things that caught my fancy.
Merry Moo Ice cream! I got the Sea Salt Caramel. It was good :) Slightly on the saltier side than sweet, but good nonetheless. P60 a scoop.
Other notables (for me anyway) would be the Bagnet Sandwich, the Monster Burger, Healthy Coffee, and Thai Milk Tea from SaThai. For non food items, you can also find a Leyende booth and a Messy Bessy booth.
I would have enjoyed my Mercato Centrale experience more if only it wasn’t so darn hot.
If you plan to check out Mercato Centrale, I suggest going there extra early or check out the Midnight Mercato instead if you’re not particularly tolerable of the heat.
