Everyone is a foodie at heart. I mean, who doesn’t love food? Just like what they say, “Food is love, food is life.”
Years ago, we saw the rise of a lot of themed cafes to match our creative genius and to satisfy our cravings.
But recently, a lot of food parks are on the rise. Good food is easier to find now even if you’re carpooling with your barkada thanks to food parks. You can just park there and enjoy a variety of food choices to satisfy your cravings. Food parks are places your family and friends can eat out and enjoy the ambiance and good music, too.
When you’re living in the far North, like in the far far away land of Fairview, food choices seem to be limited if you don’t want to go to the nearest malls.
But not anymore. Recently, Fairview, Quezon City easily became the “Food Park capital” in the North because of a lot of food parks are now available in the area. Never mind the traffic caused by MRT-7’s construction, because it’s all worth the drive.
If you are a millennial and you’re fond of insta-worthy food, great ambiance and good music, here are six must-visit food parks in Fairview for your next food park-venture:
1. StrEat Commonwealth
As one of the first food parks in the area, StrEat Commonwelth delivers a diverse cuisine from Thai food to pizzas; from burgers and fries to Korean food like their exquisite array of stalls that we loved on their branch in Maginhawa.
