After the grand opening of MEZZA Norte last May 3, here comes another night food market to hang out as Mercato Centrale now brings Levante to Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City .
Levante, which literally translates to “the East”, will be open every Friday starting May 17 at Eastwood Citywalk 2 from 6:00pm to 3:00am. The Levante night food market is the first collaboration of the Mercato Centrale Group with the Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.
Ribbon cutting ceremony last Friday, May 17.
“We are very excited with this partnership because the Megaworld Lifestyle Malls Group has always been supportive of original food concepts – from their selection of innovative and progressive restaurants to the gourmet weekend markets. We feel that the Mercato Centrale experience will complement the dining and TGIF gimmicks of Eastwood mallgoers,” said RJ Ledesma, Co-founder of the Mercato Centrale Group.
Thirty of Mercato Centrale’s best food vendors were selected for Levante. These budding food entrepreneurs, a mix of old and new, offer mouth-watering homemade cooking such as your favourite Pinoy street foods as well as the best-selling dishes from Mercato Centrale’s most popular vendors.
“Our team carefully selected the best vendors from our different managed markets to cater to Eastwood’s discerning crowd that ranges from kids to seniors; from fun-loving teens to young professionals; and from happily contented singles to couples enjoying domestic bliss. Levante offers a premium Mercato Centrale foodie experience,” added Ledesma.
Among the thirty vendors, my personal favorite is Macheesemo Burgers, owned by Patrick Santos. They serve burger with cheese in between patties. Yummy!
