Mezza Norte, Quezon City’s premiere food and lifestyle night market, has opened in Ayala Malls’ Trinoma last night.
RJ Ledesma, co-founder of Mercato Centrale Group was there to formally open Mezza Norte to the public.
The Mercato Centrale Group is the successful events group behind Metro Manila’s premier food and lifestyle night weekend markets that include Midnight Mercato in Bonifacio Global City and Cucina Andare at the Glorietta Park, Makati.
I was there, together with other food enthusiasts, to savor Mezza Norte’s wide selection of delectable and affordable goodies including Pinoy street foods, grilled foods, rice meals, burgers, kebabs, dimsums, tacos, ice creams, cakes, pastries, fruit shakes, and a lot more.
According to RJ Ledesma, Trinoma was chosen as the location for Mezza Norte because it’s strategcially located at the heart of Quezon City “where we can best serve Northern Manila’s food enthusiasts.” Mezza Norte also complements Trinoma’s great shopping, dining and entertainment experience.
All food vendors undergo a taste test by the Mercato Centrale Group, and they are chosen based on these criteria: flavor, innovation and uniqueness. These were some of my personal favorites:
Manila Q is owned by Charibelle Morados. She started at Morning Mercato and currently has stalls in Midnight Mercato, Cucina Andare and Mezza Norte. Her products include bagwang, fish ham and corned beef sinangag.
Carlo’s Kitchen is owned by Catherine and Carlo Reantazo. They started at Distrito Night Market in Makati and they currently have a stall in Midnight Mercato, Cucina Andare and Mezza Norte. Their best seller is the crunchy pork belly. Their other products are chicken teriyaki and pork chop.
Sultry Chef is owned by Ivory Yat of Master Chef Philippines. She started at Mezza Norte and sells savory chicken, nachos, beef bbq and different varieties of pasta.
