Urban Eats: Part 2

Urban Eats
What is Urban Eats? It's a magical place where you can find everything your tummy desires! I'm kidding.. well, sort of. Urban Eats is a food hub located along Congressional Avenue Extension that offers a wide range of food choices - from Filipino to Japanese, appetizers to desserts - they have it all!

I divided my post into two parts so it doesn't get too overwhelming. This is already part two, but worry not, you can read each post independently. I still suggest you check out part one of my post though!

From being a quiet space during the day, Urban Eats transforms into a barkada chill out spot at night. The parking in the area becomes increasingly difficult the later it gets, so I suggest coming early or you might end up having to park a good 5-10 minutes away.Urban Eats
That doesn't seem to be an issue to most people though, because Urban Eats is definitely a place worth going to, especially if you want to try new dishes. The stalls here are mostly startups, which I've always been a supporter of. Instead of spending your money on overpriced dishes from huge chain restaurants or corporations, wouldn't it be nicer to buy from small businesses and know that you've helped bring them one step closer to their dreams? I think so.

Here's a quick look at some of the stalls at Urban Eats. I found out that the Urban Eats is actually owned by the people behind Fariñas Ilocos Empanada. I got to try their empanada for the first time that day, and it was so good! More on it here!

Good thing I was able to get a quick look of the place before the happy chaos that ensued. Check out the photo below. The place was jampacked! Apparently, Saturdays are acoustic nights, so people come not only for the food, but for the music as well!

How about some live acoustic sessions while you eat? It's the perfect way to spend your chill Saturday, especially if you have friends who enjoy eating as much as you do.

In the first post, I've already introduced WYK Korean Restaurant, Nihon Riyori, Quench, Valentina's, and Fariñas Ilocos Empanada. So now, let's start part two with Joey's BBQ and Grill. We ordered a sampler of their specialties - the Chicken Barbecue, Pan Grilled Sausage, and Grilled Lemongrass Pork Belly. Grilled items are a must for food parks like this one, because who doesn't love barbecue, right??

While we were walking around, we stumbled upon their Love Locks wall! As of now, there are only a handful of locks on the fence, but I bet more have "padlocked their hearts" since our visit.

Next, we have Hungry Knights. We had our fill of their Shrimplet Gladiators and Dragon Wings, but you can also choose to order their Dungeon Wings, Beefy Crusades, Porklet Vikings, or Mozzacastle. How creative are their item names? They also painted their stall walls like ones from the olden times. Creative!

From Fratello's, we had coffee frappes and this delicious platter of sweets. Their offerings are different from the savory treats that I've showed you so far, but that's what I love about Urban Eats - its diversity. You can come here for merienda, dinner, or late night tambays and still find something you'll want to order.

Another stall that offers sweets would be Babita. It's the girliest stall around, so you can't miss it. Here, we had the Mocha S’mores, Salted Caramel & Peach Pie, and Banana & Peanut Butter Shakes.

If shakes aren't enough, you could also order their S'mores Dip. I am telling you, when they placed this on our table, everyone's eyes lit up. Sooooo yummmyyyy!
Urban Eats
Crazy Waffles offers waffles everything! We went with the Happy Gilmore (their version of BLT) and Waffle Burger. It's sweet and savory at the same time!

Our final stop was this Mexican joint called Taqueria Manolo Y Margarita. They offer everything from nachos to burritos! We started with their Nachos Overload, some cheesy French fries, Nacho/Taco Bites, and Chicken Burrito. The first three were made up of mostly the same ingredients, so I liked them all. Haha! I didn't have much space in my tummy left for the burrito, but I enjoyed the small bites I took with the sauce and salsa they served it with.
