Midnight Mercato


It was almost midnight and still I could not stop thinking about food.


IMG_8268How fortunate that it was also Midnight Mercato’s opening night


The place was packed.


IMG_8266Indoor area


IMG_8233Outdoor area


Spotted Rajo Laurel, Tessa Prieto-Valdez, Angel Aquino, and Pam of What We Wore with her husband John. I wanted to kick myself for forgetting to take a photo of Pam and what she wore.


But I did remember to take photos of what I ate.


IMG_8265Sausage King’s…


IMG_8223Bratwurst on wheat bread – okay lah


IMG_8239Veccitto’s and Lola Diding’s…


IMG_8241Tokwa Special – tokwa too firm and the sauce too acidic




IMG_8244Claypot Chicken Rice


IMG_8262Great concept but not quite there yet


IMG_8250Margarita’s Paella’s…


IMG_8257Paella Negra – yummy!


IMG_8248Will try her Valenciana next time


IMG_8231And my favorite of all, Resty’s Roast Beef Carving Station’s…


IMG_8253Roast beef sandwich – this is excellent! The meat is super tender, rich and flavorful.


IMG_8225Their roast beef is one of the best I’ve had in Manila. 
I’d go back to Midnight Mercato just for this.


IMG_8229They also have chicken but I don’t know how it fares


IMG_8237Washed down the gluttony with BBQ Pitt’s iced tea. Vendor said it’s freshly brewed.


IMG_8272I thought I spotted aliens, too (he he)


IMG_8274My take home goodies: Nutsylicious’ pistachios, dried figs and walnuts


Midnight Mercato: 34th Street and 8th Avenue (across MC Home Depot), Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Manila, Philippines

Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00pm to 3:00am
