Banchetto Love - Friday Night Foodie Market Feast!

Banchetto Food Market-114 

If you are looking for a place to eat after a late Friday night gimmick in the Ortigas area, then Banchetto is the perfect foodie place for you. Banchetto is an Italian word meaning "a feast", and it lives up to the expectation of being the best foodie night market in the area. It was organized for the call center crowd in Ortigas as it literally opens at 12 midnight.

Here is a photo essay of our Banchetto Food Trip on Emerald...

Banchetto Food Market-105
It is best to come at exactly 12mn, when you can see the vendors still cooking some of the dishes on the spot.

Banchetto Food Market-101 
They only set up a few tables with plastic chairs (for an al fresco ambiance) in the middle of one side of Emerald Avenue.

All transactions are cash basis only, and you can eat a full meal at less than P100.

Vigan Longganisa at P40 for 2pcs per stick. :)

People are friendly and the food is prepared catering- / turo-turo-style.

Barbecue ranks among the more popular fare.

Banchetto Food Market-113
My personal favorite is the Food Guru, where you can buy Angus Beef Skewers for P50 only. :)

My wife's favorite is the Mongolian -- for only P80! You can get as many vegetables and rice as you want, but the meats are portioned properly per order.

There is only one Mongolian stall, and it seems to have no name.

Thanks to Chef's Pastry Shop for the tip on Banchetto! They sell 3 for P100 cupcake desserts.

Don't forget to bring an umbrella because Banchetto is al fresco. You'll really get wet if you get caught in a downpour in the middle of the market.

Parking is usually allowed along Emerald Avenue already by this time.
