The Philippines consists of 7,107 islands, 17 regions, and 122 cities. Aside from the unique travel spots each has, they also boast of special delicacies that make them unique from one another. If you are a frequent traveler or a foodie, you can give the food that will describe the region, town, or city, and vice versa in a snap of a finger.
Town hopping for special delicacy is just one of the many reasons that make Philippines more interesting.
Living in Manila where fast food and foreign-franchised restaurants are everywhere, I usually crave for local, home-cooked food that can be found in night markets. With most of our running events done in Bonifacio Global City, Mercato Centrale is a go-to place to satisfy this craving especially during overnight set-up.
It is a delight to know that Mercato Centrale Group, Pilmico, and Aboitiz Group worked on creating an advocacy campaign “Mahalin Pagkaing Atin” (Love Your Own Food) featuring the delicacies of Luzon. The advocacy campaign promotes sustainable entrepreneurship, homegrown produce, and instills a “pride of product, pride of place” mindset for both the farmers and consumers.

As part of the campaign roll-out, seminars on animal husbandry and nutrition, cooking and baking demonstrations and showcases the different flavors of the provinces to advocate local delicacies will be conducted.
On July 31, take part in this nationwide advocacy and satisfy that craving for authentic Filipino food choices. See you at the Mercato Centrale at Bonifacio Global City 8:00PM onwards. Join the night long festivities of fun activities, fill your bellies with delectable food finds, spend the night mingling, and get a chance to know your food.
