If you live or work in the business district of BGC, then Mercato Centrale is just a few steps away from you. But for a person like me, this place was out of way. It was like going in a food trip. I did not try everything from it but I bought a bento of sausage, bagnet and egg. To... More

This is my workmates and I's go-to place when we just want to chill and dine. I must agree that the food is somewhat pricey but there is a wide variety to choose from so you can always decide which ones are worth your money. It will take you quite some time to get tables and chairs since most of... More

A Food Bazaar situated outdoors which offer a myraid of food stalls from Filipino bbq, hamburgers, bagnet, churros and fruit drinks. Healthy eaters may be disappointed though as the choices cater more to carnivores and pork lovers. I tried the chicken intenstine, pork ears/cheeks, fried squid balls from T BBQ. If I weren't worried about my cholesterol I would have... More

FOOD: What we tried and our verdicts: Ultimate philly cheese steak - for a price of P150, I was expecting a sandwich full of steak and loaded with cheese. Boy was I disaappointed! Lechon cebu (beside the cheese steak stand) - this one is okay. We bought a round food container full of shredded Lechon meat and skin. Took it... More

Mercado used to be a good and fun place to visit for a late night meal. Unfortunately, there are now too many stalls. The food aren't so great as well and overpriced. I think maybe the rental is so high that the business owners reflect this with the price of their goods. But we are not getting our money's worth... More

The place is great because its as if you're in a bustling market of different food. Street style but good food. You cannot be intimidated by the place. It's just that the juice area was not rally good. Some tasted very artificial. And the floor was a little dirty. They're putting platforms to elevate the areas who have puddles of... More

There are lots of food and you will find it hard to choose so when we went there the second time we chose foods that were not yet cooked like the salmon, some steaks, bbqs etc then watched them cook it. The reason for this is because some products are already cooked and you dont know if they how many... More

Mercato has been a go to feast for players who are using BGC Turf. Myself included. Before the food choices are great but nowadays it seemed liked their concessionaires have changed as the food are not as good. We tried their Vigan Empanada but we're disappointed as it's very oily and the filling wasn't good. We also tried the crispy... More
