Best Food Parks Around Manila
Food parks have been a trend for the past few months. What made these spread like wildfire is that they offer a whole new variety of eats in an Instagram-worthy place compared to your ordinary family diner. They are also perfect for your next barkada food trip! Check out GoBear’s list of food parks to spice up your Instagram feed and satisfy your cravings.
Try out gastronomic fantasies from around the world with Quezon City’s newest food park located at Mindanao Avenue—The Vibe! Upon entering the food park, you will witness a display of a red, old but well-furnished, Volkswagen that serves as the park’s centerpiece.
Baypoint’s Giant Butterfly Squid, which is sold for only P175, is a must-try for those who would like to visit the food park for the first time. Its tenderness and ample amount of brininess will make you crave for more.
Raindrop cakes took the internet by storm last 2016, but if you still haven’t tried them yet, you can always visit the Malingap Marketplace in Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. This cake is made with agar-agar, a jelly-like substance obtained from algae, which makes it unique from the other gelatins we would usually consume. Dewdew Cake PH sells this for P120 and is best eaten when drizzled with black honey syrup, mango cream, or matcha syrup. You may also find it at Bhest Lasagna’s stall.
You can never go wrong with food and art. Crave Park is definitely the melting pot of food junkies and art aficionados. Works by local street artists such as Eggfiasco and Kookoo Ramos are showcased throughout the park’s interior. Although murals have been the highlight of the food park, food is what will make the crowd come back for more.

The Truck Park
The Truck Park is currently the largest food park in Marikina and the first one ever to have a cashless payment system! They will give you a PVC card for you to load it up with cash as much as you can and use for your food purchases. It's pretty much a practice for spending using your credit card on food parks.
The food park also offers any food you can ever image—from gourmet sausages to your ultimate comfort food covered in cheese.
