BORACAY STREET MARKET: What to eat at Boracay's first Food Hall?!




by Abigail Javellana

Street Market (Boracay)

Find a whole lot of awesome food selections like tacos, buttermilk fried chicken, fish & chips, yakitori, nasi goreng, curry crab, Neopolitan pizza, pasta, and bingsu under one roof!

Street Market is the first and only food hall in Boracay catering to seven unique food concepts, where you’re bound to go on a hassle-free gastronomic food trip with your friends.

The Street Market concept was put together by the same people behind the successful Sunny Side Cafe, Coco Mama, Spice Bird, and Super Magic Burgers restaurants in Boracay.

Street Market (Boracay)

The hip food hall is tucked within Station X (the nearest landmark is Boracay Tropics Hotel).

 

Street Market (Boracay)

It’s a collective space for foodies to hangout with family, friends, and strangers alike.

Here, customers can also enjoy backyard picnic-style dining.

All the restaurants in the Food Hall were developed by the same group of owners who want to ensure two things--quality execution and no overlapping dishes.

Here's the list of restos you can find at Street Market...

 

SANTO PELIGROSAStreet Market (Boracay)

Who doesn't love good Mexican food? Santo Peligrosa is the fictional Patron Saint of Danger. The kitchen of Santo Peligrosa prepares their food daily, from the molé, barbacoa, and carnitas, to the sauces made of chilis that they import from Mexico.

The chilis they use give their sauces a different profile. They're not spicy but have this smokey depth of flavor. It's a combination of imported chilis including pasilla chile, Ancho chile, and guajillo chile that gives that bitter taste.

Menu: Tacos & Burritos | Fillings | Short Rib Chili | Chips & Drinks

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Guacamole & Chips (P225)

Their guacamole is a perfect mix of avocado, citrus, and salt paired with freshly fried nacho chips.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Tacos (Single P125), (Plate of Three P350)

Order their tacos. We like that their corn tortillas are made from scratch every day.

My favorite is the Carnitas--slow-braised pork shoulder marinated in chile Arbol, topped with pico de gallo and cilantro--for its meaty flavor.

The Crispy Fish is perfect for the beach.

The Chicken Mole--braised chicken with cinnamon, nutmeg, chilis, and chocolate--has a different flavor profile from the carnitas and barbacoa.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Each taco is a personal size good for one. It is served open faced, so best to fold and eat while hot.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Burrito Mojado (P390)

Filled with barbacoa beef, this wet burrito is bathed in chili sauce then topped with guacamole and sour cream. Their sauce is different from the usual Mexican joints where you get this bitter and smoky taste from the chilis.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

It's a very filling meal that's best for sharing (especially if you want to try more food)!

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Horchata (P95)
For drinks, we loved their Horchata, a refreshing Mexican drink made with rice, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon.

 

POKETO

Street Market (Boracay)

Serving small yakitori sticks, Poketo (meaning pocket or tiny) fits the resto perfectly.

Menu: Yakitori Sticks

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Yakitori Bowl (P290, add P30 for every premium stick)

The kids loved the yakitori bowls that came with furikake rice, soft onsen egg, tempura flakes, pickles, and nori on top.

I personally loved their sweet thick homemade tare sauce glazed on top of the yakitori sticks. Add a bit of Poketo salt for that extra zing.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

For chicken, order the tsukune (chicken balls), thigh, and breast. And for the red meats, go with the pork neck, pork belly, and beef cheek.

You can also get sticks a la carte ranging from P65-P95 each.

 

DIAVOLO

Street Market (Boracay)

With an oven that can get as hot as 800 degrees, Diavolo fittingly describes this food concept specializing in Neopolitan pizzas and juicy, slow-cooked porchetta.

It's also the only place on the island where you can get Neopolitan-style pizza.

Menu: Pizza | Pizza 2 | Pizza 3 | Porchetta | More

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Porchetta (P350)

The mouth-watering, golden crisp porchetta was bursting with flavor. The marriage of both meat and spices was divine.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Tender, delicious meat with a crisp skin offering a variety of texture and taste. (I heard the Porchetta Pizza is also as good.)

 

FAT RICE

Street Market (Boracay)

Fat Rice is a collection of Street Market owners Odette and Nowie Potenciano's foodie adventures from their favorite Southeast Asian travels.

Menu: Great Beginnings | Mains | Specials | Specials | Rice, Noodles, & Dessert

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Curry Crab (P590)

My favorite is their specialty, curry crab. Wok-fried crab with egg and yellow curry, this is their version of the popular dish from famous restaurant Samboon in Thailand.

The sauce was delightful, sweet yet savory, with a hint of spiciness. Best eaten with rice.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Cha Ca “La Vong” (P290)

This beautifully assembled dish is Fat Rice's take on a classic from Hanoi. Fish chunks served with dill, noodles, fish paste, and nuts.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

The fish is eaten on top of noodles. The ingredients make no sense, but the flavors were surprisingly harmonious. A must-try!

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Nasi Goreng (P250) | Mi Goreng (P250)

For those looking for a flavorful rice and noodle dish, they have Indonesia's traditional Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Both dishes have the same sauce but slightly different preparations. This was just OK for me.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Crab Fat Wings (P290)
Created in the kitchens of Fat Rice. This is a combination of crab fat, chili, and wings that's full of sweet and umami flavors.

 

OTHER ESTABLISHMENTS

You can also cross order from Little Wave Coffee shop for pasta and brewed coffee. The pasta is made fresh daily by Chef Natalia, who lived in Italy for a while and used to sell ravioli in Mercato Centrale.

Street Market (Boracay)

Gnocchi

Gnocchi is a small dumpling made of potato, eggs, and flour. Their version is made with brown butter, which delivers a light taste, golden brown color, and nutty flavor.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Mushroom Pasta

A nice creamy pasta with a hint of truffle oil. The pasta seems to break a little, but the overall taste is good.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Seafood lovers should visit Percy for their fix of a nice bowl of poke-poke, fish & chips, and ceviche.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Find everything fried at Winner Winner. They have two popular chicken dishes--the classic buttermilk and honey butter fried chicken.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

And for the warm weather, a nice cold bowl of Bingsu at Sugar Cloud would do the trick. I heard they also have a special halo-halo version.

 

Street Market (Boracay)

Congratulations, Odette and Nowie Potenciano for another winning Boracay concept!

 

One Awesome Day at The Lind Boracay-53.jpg

Overall, we love Street Market. It promises a variety of quick eats conveniently housed in one place.

Go on a food trip with friends in a hipster communal food park setting. Order the tacos, horchata, porchetta, cha ca “la vong”, mushroom pasta, and curry crab. Budget about P300/head at a minimum.

I can't wait to try Prisma--the latest cocktail bar concept in Boracay from the guys of ABV--to open in Station X.
