So here we go, a list of our 8 favorite finds!
8 Butuan Food Park Finds You Need to Try
Food Coma (Backyard Food District)
It is no wonder why the name of their stall is called Food Coma because after having all of their mouthwatering meals off their sizzling plates, you might as well sit back and get stuck in a food coma yourself. While we were there, the staff cooked up an amazing feast of Beef Pepper Rice, Sizzling Sisig, Lechon Sisig and Chili Garlic Shrimp. Suffice to say, I can’t pick one particular favorite meal from what we got to try.
The beef pepper rice is their pioneer product, though, and through time, they’ve managed to perfect it to a tee – with sweet and salty flavors coming together superbly.
The Lechon Sisig is also revolutionary, giving the usual Filipino Sisig a new spin by switching the ingredients with some juicy and tasty boneless lechon bits.
Esquina Street Burgers (Hungry Space Food Park)
Now I know Tijuana Charred Pork Belly would be the last thing on your mind if you read Esquina Street Burgers, but I HAVE TO mention this first because it was just out-of-this-world-Ahhhmazing!
It is perfectly seasoned and grilled and just makes you say “Hot damn, hell yes” once you’ve taken a bite. The new flavors are a welcome twist to the usual sweet barbecue marinade that we’re used to. Pair that with “puso” rice and you’re really good to go. Other must-tries include Esquina Bbq Burger, Kalye Cheese burger and you mustn’t forget their chili cheese fries with jalapeño. Oooh, yum!
