Mercato Centrale in BGC has been around for years now. It has changed the ball game for weekend markets and even challenged existing midnight markets causing a stir that hyped up and leveled up this kind of food scene in the Metro. I've been a Mercato Central fan as early as 2011 - even before it moved to it's unforgettable location just across the football field in BGC. It used to be that weekend market that I look forward to on a Saturday morning.

|Midnight Mercato's latest location - 25th cor. 7th!|
Got there around 6:30PM and the place was packed! It's amazing how Mercato Centrale has consistently attracted the crowd despite competition. There were a lot of vendors offering different kinds of food. You won't run out of options since they have a lot to choose from - grilled meat, burgers, skewers, Filipino favorites, pasta, paella, all sorts of sweets (from cupcakes to cakes, churros, ice cream, etc), crepes, salad and even fresh fruit/veggie juices!

Also got the chance to take a bite of another best seller - Nutella and Banana. As expected, it was yummy! You can never go wrong with Nutella and Parlade Creperie made sure to put in just the right amount so that it will not be cloying.
The Hairstylist's Menu
If you are looking for something light, fresh and definitely healthy while in Mercato, you have to check The Hairstylist's Menu! They don't sell hair care products but rather, they offer healthy grub - fresh cut fruits, garden fresh salad fruity milkshakes and freshly squeezed fruit/veggie juices! Owned by Leo Pascual, who apparently is a hairstylist with his own salon (Leo Pascual Salon), they're serious in ensuring that only the freshest organic ingredients are used in all of their products.
