Well, better late than never. I heard about this but i was busy with my own planning and birthday celebration then so i wasn't able to attend the launch of it, but with the right time and circumstances after the holidays, i was able to finally visit the place.
Prior the visit, texted Sir Anton & Rache Diaz, checked his OAP site, the Mercato Centrale FB page and then i was set to go, equipped with what i was expecting of Marcato Centrale, and i can say that i am ready to visit MC@BGC.

Woke up earyl on a very easy Sunday January 9 morning, not eating breakfast and prepared myself for the big battle ahead, i picked up my friends and my lifetime partner and headed to Bonifacio Global City.
The Mercato Centrale area is not hard to miss, it's actually near and walking distance from The SPA (BHS) and Serendra, I tell you... it's not hard to miss..

One of the food there that we didn't have time to taste is Bale Dutung's Pan de Bagnet, which are selling like hot cakes. We were supposed to get this but because of the long line we let it pass for now. :)
