If you’re a foodie in 2017, you probably see food parks as a slice of heaven.
Not that we’re blaming you, because what’s not to love about a place with different food selections—perfect for those who either want to try everything or are just plainly indecisive! With the rise of this trend in the foodie scene, a lot of food parks had recently sprung up in the Metro, sporting different concepts to attract more people. And for the sake of millennials, most of these food parks are made to be perfectly Instagrammable!
We’ve seen food parks outdoors and in open spaces, or indoors and air-conditioned. We’ve seen some with garage settings, with the stalls either being in food trucks or container vans. We’ve seen some either occupying a stretch of the street or with multi-levels. But this time, we’re bringing you to…a food park at the rooftop!
The Rooftop Food Park in Quezon City is located at the top of a vacant building. The entire first floor is allocated for parking, which is great news for those with cars because you don’t have to squeeze your car into some eerie alley. And when you climb up , voila! A huge food park is set to welcome you.
One of the good things about food parks is that food is inexpensive. The Rooftop Food Park takes this to another level as their food are super extra affordable—yet really delicious and satisfying! Check out some of our favorites:
This 150 pesos burger and fries combo from Burgers on Deck makes us hungry every time we look at it!
And what are we loving as of this moment? Syempre, walang iba kundi #ihaw! Seriously though—try out their liempo and thank us later!
We’ve never seen food as good as this seafood from Captain Tuna! Get them for 120 to 199 pesos. Super sulit!
Get your chopsticks ready and dig into this 150 pesos bowl of goodness from Gyuchi!
Oh no – cholesterol had never looked this mouthwatering! These temptresses from Heart Attack is indeed giving us a heart attack! Bonus: their chicken tastes so much like Max’s Fried Chicken. Get half for 150 and a whole for 290 pesos!
Quench your #thirst with fruit shakes and freshly squeezed juices from Juice N’ Juices! Our tip? Try out their mango shake (60 pesos) and freshly-squeezed orange juice (50 pesos)!
In a tropical country like ours, halo-halo and mais con hielo would always hold special places in our hearts. And these ones from Juice N’ Juices again are definitely in ours!
There’s nothing like local food, and the bulalo (240 pesos) and inasal (89 pesos for leg part and 99 for pecho) from Kawayan remind us just why!
We’re suckers for both the nitrogen food fad and coffee, which is why we’re in love with Nitro 7 Coffee and Tea Bar’s Nitrogen Coffee. Definitely the best study buddy and costs only 120 pesos!
