So just this weekend I, along with one of my ‘bosses’ from my internship, went to the weekend market at Salcedo Village in Makati. The trip was more business than pleasure, so I wasn’t able to try out as many food stalls as I could. But it was fun, anyway.
Loubna Piega’s Moroccan Cuisine
The first stall we went to was this one serving healthy Moroccan cuisine. I tried the b’stilla (pronounced “ba-stee-ya”) which I really liked because it was both sweet and savoury. It’s basically like a mini chicken pie of sorts, but it also has cinnamon and sugar powder on it. Really good. Each one was P45.00.
Picolé Healthy Ice Pops
Read a lot about this place online before we went to the market, so I was excited to see them there. I got the natural yogu pops because I felt like froyo that day. It was…exactly like froyo, but emphasis on the fro LOL. The one I got was P35.00 but I think different flavours have different prices. Check out their website here.
Lastly, we tried cookies from My Goodness. They were your typical ‘healthy’ cookies in that they have no added sugar and are low calorie. Pretty good, though. Wish we tried more. The ones we tried were the oatmeal. Anyways, here’s their website.
Most, if not all, of the stalls offer free samples of their products so that can give you a chance to try them out before buying anything.
As you can see from the first two pictures, there are way more stalls in this weekend market. If you want to try Moroccan cuisine, Picole, My Goodness and other stalls, go to the weekend market in Tordesillas Park, Salcedo Village in Makati; Saturdays, between 7 am - 2 pm. Don’t hesitate to ask around where it is if you get lost because it’s pretty well-known and chances are the locals will know where it is. Cab drivers will definitely know it.
Professed Pinoy foodies should not go without having gone to a weekend market in Manila at least once!
