MARKET BASKET is the “Dampa”-themed restaurant of Larry Cortez, which fits nicely with the new River Park Concept of Filinvest Mall in Alabang. A dampa is where you can buy fresh seafood, pay by the grams, and have it cooked to your specifications.
I recently met with my programmer friend Andre to check out Market Basket…
Here are their different cooking options and the types of sauce available:
An a la carte menu is also available for an easier ordering process. But where’s the fun in that?
The sinigang was hot and sour — just the way I like it — with generous servings of salmon belly. The serving size is big enough for 4 people.
Freshly baked for less than P200 only. 🙂
Stuffed squid is my favorite but the bigger sized ones are tough (makunat). So make sure to order the smaller ones instead.
Make sure to order vegetables to complete your meal. I usually like it with oriental sauce and lots of garlic. 🙂
Overall, Market Basket is a good and sanitary way to experience dampa-style cooking by the river. It’s ideal for balikbayan guests and barkada gatherings. 🙂
It is very affordable at a budget of about P400/head.
Congratulations to Larry Cortez for his new resto baby concept! 🙂

P.S. I do hope that they could add entertainment shows on weekends in River Park to complete the ambiance of the whole area.
