Manang’s Chicken @ Midnight Mercato

Finally, we launched THE weekend night market @ Bonifacio Global City last Friday & Saturday!

Midnight Mercato is the weekend late night food bazaar where you can enjoy mouth-watering food finds — from home-cooked meals to gourmet signature dishes to classic street food re-invented — while listening to live acoustic musical performances. Most importantly, you can enjoy Midnight Mercato in a clean, comfortable and organized setting inside an air-conditioned tent.

Some trivia:
– It is the First Midnight Market (11pm to 3am) in the heart of Bonifacio Global City.
– It is the First Saturday Night Market and Second Friday Night Market in Manila.
– The morning Mercato Centrale continues to operate every Saturday and Sunday 7am to 2pm  with the fresh Organic Market and Food Market.
– It is an ongoing night market every weekend!
– Beer and alcoholic drinks are NOT allowed in the market. (Yes, it is a wholesome family place.)

Here is a photo essay of the Midnight Mercato Launch:

We had a simple ribbon-cutting ceremony last Friday attended by the Who’s Who of Manila’s Lifestyle scene.

Thanks to all the celebrities, dignitaries, and friends for supporting the launch of Midnight Mercato! ๐Ÿ™‚

There was a simple blessing of Mercato Centrale by Father Domi de Guzman.

The media and young professionals from the BPO industry joined us for the celebration last Friday.

There were different features by the different news channels including 24 Oras and…

a live broadcast by Apples Jalandoni for Bandila. ๐Ÿ™‚

After the features, we were pleasantly surprised to see the Saturday Night Market packed with foodies and their families. ๐Ÿ™‚

My good friend Chris from P&G invited his foreigner friend to eat Balut in Midnight Mercato. ๐Ÿ™‚

Midnight Mercato, located in a clean, safe and comfortable environment, is the perfect place to showcase our Filipino street food to tourists.

The barbecue and isaw were a hit. ๐Ÿ™‚

Off Beat Burger joined us for Midnight Mercato — now you can savor Krispy Kreme Burger at night and their latest creation…

Ensaymada Chori Burger!

Yes, it is the ultimate Midnight Snack. ๐Ÿ™‚

For a light meal to cap the night, you have a variety of options — from simple, hot lugaw, to hot taho, to a Mexican taco.

Foodies are going loco over these nuts — we love the pecans.

Here is a favorite that’s only available in Midnight Mercato — Armenian Lavosh Chips with different toppings. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mochiko’s Mochi Ice Cream balls sold out very quickly that night.

The foodies are looking for more dessert suppliers at night.

Big Bob’s is ready to serve you with chargrilled burgers every Friday and Saturday night!

Sometimes, all we need to end the night is a serving of Takoyaki balls (P50).

We are starting to build the organic products market at night. Why not shop for your favorite Human Nature products @ Midnight Mercato?

We are also looking for more arts stuff and organic products to complement the midnight market.

We love the homemade Raviolis of Natalia!

Isa’s Mongolian is a hit at night more than the morning market.

For those having an early morning breakfast, try the Certified Angus Beef Tapa Rice Toppings. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally, Bale Dutung is opening this coming weekend @ Midnight Mercato!

You can comfortably choose where to sit around the market:

Tent 1 is the airconditioned tent (and it can get a bit chilly…)

There is live acoustic entertainment in Tent 1 by Rock Ed artists. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are inviting the up-and-coming artists in Manila to jam with us @ Midnight Mercato.

Tent 3 is an al-fresco barbecue tent.

Tent 4 is an al-fresco dining tent.

Or you can eat under the stars…

Thanks to Clear Channels for the Midnight Balls! ๐Ÿ™‚

Come and eat with us every Friday and Saturday @ Midnight Mercato!
