Midnight Mercato

Midnight Mercato was mouthful of fun!
My belly was really happy! I definitely am going back! <3
We went last Saturday. We arrived 9:30 in the evening, Midnight Mercato opens at 10. When we got there, a number of people were already lined up outside waiting for doors to open.
The place was jam-packed. No more table for us. *sigh*
We didn't finish our pizza. It's super heavy on the stomach, and I really don't like my pizza thick. I like my food thin! ;P
150 per slice
Chef Resty's Roast Beef Carving Station

ZOMG! I noticed just now, as I construct a caption!!!!, Rodrigo's is in Mercato!!!!!! ZOMG! I didn't see this!!!!! :(((
Been meaning to try their deadly, sinful U.S.D.A Angus Beef Belly Roast for quite a time now!!!!! *creys*
Candied bacon ice cream flavor! Didn't try it, though! Next time!
I had to buy and have Mochiko first!! <3333
Bought Mango (Finn's) and Green Tea flavor! 
It's really good since the pounded sticky rice/chewy mochi shell is just thin, and the ice cream filling is so creamy!
We allowed it to melt for a bit since it was really frozen! Nangilo ze teeth!
70php per piece, 400php for box of six.
Macarooooons! Didn't crave for macarons that day, though.
Queue @ Manang's Chicken was sooo long! Asked Essa and Carlo to get us wings, instead! 
It's really goood! I prefer Manang's Chicken over BonChon! hee 
Had Philly Changa too
Flame-grilled burgerzzz
Lechon Cebu!
Japanese Chili Dog
Had milk tea (Wintermelon) too! <33
The guy who ordered before I did kept on ordering loudly "santol juice... santol juice... santol juice". I got really intrigued. It seemed like he was really sure of his order and was badly craving for it. When the lady asked me what my order is, I said, "orange juice" (read: safest flavor to order). There were A LOT of flavors to choose from! I really didn't know which flavor to have. I wasn't craving for any juice really = I would like to try 'em all unusual juice flavors, hrhr! She, then, said, "wala pong orange juice" (translation: we do not have orange juice), and since some people were waiting in line, santol juice it was! Nakigaya na lang ako! ;) 
It was my first time to gulp down santol juice! I had never tasted it and had no idea how it'll taste like. I do not really eat fruits, in general. I am more of a veggie person. BUT boy, I really liked it! Super refreshing!!! <33333 I liked it better that my milk tea! <33333
(Juice Bar photos from
 Street food available too!!
Off Beat Burgers
Burger patty and other more (cheese, ham, and so on) sandwiched in Orginal Glazed Kripy Kreme doughnut! Hmmmm....

 Since we had a hard time looking for available table and seats, where better place to settle and nom than in the sidewalk. I also enjoyed Camille and Drei's rice box with small cuts of wagyu beef. Tasted so.... Japanese! ;p Cheap yet really tasty.

Most photos (unless otherwise indicated) are taken with Lumix GF2, pancake 14mm lens installed, in expressive mode. :) Really good for landscape shots. Look at the scope the camera can cover as compared to photos grabbed from others, specified as grabbed! :) I am starting to really love my new baby! I was actually complaining before, oops. :) It's pricey, no! It better be great and I better be satisfied with its performance! :)) I didn't use the flash --I rarely use cam's flash actually-- which explains why some shots are blurry. They're still nice! It captures better night photos than our dSLR Sony Alpha350. ;)

    1. eat a best food of beaf followed on:-
      Make sure kobe beef burgers you all work all the way through the basics by the side of there is no item or obsession left in with the main purpose japanese kobe beef proper way of working all the way through ordering by the side of basic knowledge of work. There are so much all wagyu steaks we can get over the period as the right item or obsessions are every kobe beef sarcastic.

  10. i love mercato too, so many people lang, we usually go around 2-3am but by the time, almost all the food is gone :P

  11. Give your test bud a different ways to make your mind foody :- The american style kobe beef time has changed which can be thorough and by taking that the work needs to give genuine and authentic american wagyu beef substances through new dimension appropriate orders. There are perfect new facts all in relativity making up for the japanese wagyu cattle good work. The changing work as partly may have enquired so many new limitations as it has given prior wagyu meat shops a online order.
