MERCATO CENTRALE takes food to your doorstep via City Delivery

The thing I don't like about living in the outskirt of Metro Manila is that I don't get to avail of the privileges that   people in NCR get. That includes easy access to establishments such as restaurants , banks, cinema and even blogging events. Maybe I already said this several times. Sorry if I had to rant about it again. You see, MERCATO CETRALE has just partnered with City Delivery so that residents of Metro Manila can enjoy the great food the weekend bazaar has to offer delivered right at their doorstep. That makes me one very envious person. lol

My friends have attempted to invite me several times to check out MERCATO CENTRALE at Bonifacio Global City but I haven't really found the time yet. Good thing Mercato Centrale contacted me last month to try their new food delivery system. Since I don't maintain residence in the Metro, I thought of staying in an open park somewhere and have it delivered there. That's making it a notch more difficult for the delivery man. Time to test how good their delivery partner City Delivery really is.......

My first location was Eastwood. I had an event in the area during that day so I thought it would be nice if after the event, I would get my MERCATO CENTRALE food delivery in the area.

Yeah, the delivery efficiency is very important. If it fails, one might rather opt for fast food right? After all, they also offer fast delivery. I was to expect my food delivery  from 2-4pm but the delivery man contacted me 10 minutes before 2pm so I was surprised.

Component one: delivery time-PASSED!!!
The next to check was the FOOD. Who cares if it arrives to you on time when you realize that it's not worth your money. I was sampled MANANG's CHICKEN that day. 

It was a double deep fried chicken with Manang's secret sauce. It's crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. What makes it stand out from the usual chicken food that you can find elsewhere is the sauce indeed. Every bite will make you wonder what the secret sauce is. I was really satisfied. While eating, I was thinking ---"these MERCATO CENTRALE foodies can really give these fastfood chains a run for their money!!"""Manang's Chicken is a must try.

2nd component: FOOD. passed!!!!
Satisfied, I thought of trying another delivery. I immediately looked at the list of concessionaires at the MERCATO CENTRALE website  and got curious with Bale Datung.

This time, I directed them to a public park in front of Pasig City Catholic Church. City Delivery was efficient yet again. I ordered PAN DE BAGNET and LECHON TORTILLA .


Bale Datung is a famous food destination in Pampanga thanks to Chef Calude Tayug.

PAN DE BAGNET is a generous serving of of crisp bagnet on ciabatta bread that comes with the Ilocano KBL (kamatis , bagoong,lusana). It is flavored with inasal marinade and finished off with a generous dose of sukang Iloko vinaigrette.

The LECHON TORTILLA is deep fried lechon belly and skin. It turns to crisp flakes in the process.It is wrapped in a soft whole wheat tortilla and garnished with tomatoes, onions, cilantro and Bale Datung's homemade kimchi with fuji apple and a tangly aromatic oriental sauce.

While these two food might not be the type that you would want to order everyday, they certainly are a treat to the palate. I give Bale Datung two thumbs up for having these delicious food available for everybody who wants to try something new from time to time.
