Mercato finally has a branch at Eastwood as Levante made its much awaited opening to the public. There are over 30 food vendors that sell a variety of food choices and that is good news to the BPO people who are working nearby.
It was awesome seeing the staff of Maria's Ilocos Empanada prepare our empanadas. When I finally got to taste the empanadas, I realized they were certainly worth the wait.
My homeboy Big Bob's Burger owner James Ean Cuenca comes to Levante with a new creation, Cheat Day Burger. The burgers at Big Bob's were charcoal grilled while the one at Cheat Day was electric grilled. I love the name because it is for weight watchers who dedicate one day of the week to eat anything they want and the food here is perfect for that day.
Patrick Cartaso's Eat MY GF is one of the more popular vendors there. I can't blame people for wanting to try their garlic fries because they are indeed tasty.
Cakes by K has a lot of goodies to offer for those who got the sweet tooth. It's such a shame I am not much of a cake lover or else I would have devoured everything in sight.
Schmidt's Gourmet Hotdogs have really juicy hotdog choices for hotdog lovers. You will be delighted at the toppings that fill up some of them.
Twisted Desserts sell a bunch of really affordable dig deep cups. They can also customize cakes like the piano cake that is displayed.

It is such a shame how this happens only once a week because I am sure the people working at Eastwood would want Levante to happen at least twice or even thrice in a week. I also hear there were not much chairs in the area so I hope that problem would be addressed.
On a personal note, I really learned my lesson with these Mercato events. I always ended up sweating like a pig. Next time, I am going to bring a couple of extra shirts. :D
