There’s no denying it: food parks are definitely the in thing this 2017 and this trend is surely here to last.
In fact, one of the OG food parks in the country just celebrated their first anniversary. Yes, we’re talking about The Yard at Xavierville! Perhaps one of the earliest food parks to set up in the country, The Yard at Xavierville quickly stole the hearts and filled the stomachs of many, including students from nearby universities like the Ateneo de Manila University, Miriam College, and University of the Philippines who had instantly pegged the food park as a regular hang out spot.
The Yard’s first year anniversary marked a huge milestone and, of course, they celebrated it with a bang by throwing a party with the promise of a good time, good food, and good music! Besides the free-flowing drinks brought by Franzia and Andy Cola, The Yard’s anniversary celebration was made even merrier by the introduction of new food stalls you’ll all surely love! Pre-existing stalls also revealed new additions to their menu–and believe us when we say you have to try these delicious offerings or else you’d be missing out!
