Fun Foodie Adventure at Levante

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.

Garlic Cheddar Wings and Black Mamba Wings from B Wings

The Black Mamba Wings were more flavorful than Garlic Cheddar Wings, but both variants were delicious.

Dinakdakan from Chef Babs Sisig

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.

Auntie May’s U.S. Beef Tapa

This tender and tasty beef tapa is a must-try, too!

Coney Island Chilli Dog from Schmidt’s Gourmet Hotdogs

Hubby and I had this at home for our midnight snack. It was a bit messy to eat but definitely worth it!
