Boy, were we glad when we learned about the very first food truck market in the country!
From the organizers of Mercato Centrale at BGC, comes Cucina Andare at the Glorietta Park, Makati. Happening every week from Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4:00pm to 3:00am.
Cucina Andare has rows of food trucks and food stalls selling food from all over the world. Mexican? American? Arabic? Filipino? Japanese? or just plain simple hotdog sandwich but with a twist? Cucina Andare has it! Traditional, fusion and new discoveries. They got it all.
Visiting this place once is not enough. I plan to go back and try the other food offers.
What caught our attention on our first visit? Let us count the ways...
1) Chicken/Beef Shawarma by Shawarma Bros.
One of the most popular food trucks, "Delicious just like the one we tasted in NYC!" Their bestseller is the Lamb Steak Shawarma, but since we are no lamb eaters, we went the safe way---chicken and beef.

2) Crunchy Belly by Carlo's Kitchen
"Crispy and not too salty."

3) New Orleans Ribs from Hick's Famous Ribs
"Soft to the bone, sweet, tangy and spicy."

4) Bagwang by Manila Q
Though we did not eat this, we bought a frozen 1/2kilo of this "unhealthy" treat for home. Our verdict: "Crispy and very delicious with a hint of garlic! A cross between bacon and our lechon kawali." Note to self: Crispy garlic bits to go with this should be perfect.
Will try their other bestseller next time: Fish Ham.

Another one to try. Not just the Sisig Wrap but the rest of their food. Looks so delectable and yummy!

7) Macheesemo Blue by Machessemo Burgers
We just were not into burgers that day. But will definitely try this food stall next time. Juicy cheese-filled burger patties?!? I am for that definitely. Can't wait.
