We had another fun and exciting culinary adventure last Friday as my small family trooped to Eastwood Citywalk 2 for the grand opening of Levante, the newest night food market from the Mercato Centrale Group. The Levante night food market is the first collaboration between Megaworld Lifestyle Malls and the Mercato Centrale Group.
According to RJ Ledesma, co-founder of the Mercato Centrale Group, they chose Eastwood for Levante because of its strategic location. Levante which literally means “the East” is open every Friday from 6:00pm to 3:00am.
Thirty vendors were chosen for Levante. They underwent a taste test by the Mercato Centrale Group and were chosen based on uniqueness, innovation and flavor. These food entrepreneurs offer yummy and affordable homemade cooking which includes grilled foods, sandwiches, tacos, kebabs, rice meals, cakes, and a lot more.

Our Top Picks
We tried more than five items at Levante, and here are our favorites:
The Black Mamba Wings were more flavorful than Garlic Cheddar Wings, but both variants were delicious.
Dinakdakan is an Ilocano-style sisig made from grilled pig head or face. The preparation is similar to pork kinilaw, but it has pork brain and/or mayonnaise. Hubby liked this.
This tender and tasty beef tapa is a must-try, too!
Hubby and I had this at home for our midnight snack. It was a bit messy to eat but definitely worth it!
