The Ups and Downs of The Coast Food Park

Food parks have been popping up all over the country and we came across this quaint one at Malabon. Before getting to their food, I just wanted to try this new format - The Ups and Downs. It was inspired by videos of the same name by the good folks at Whatculture. Basically, I will give the good bits an up and the bad bits a down. At the end of this article, you'll have an idea whether you'll give the Coast Food Park a visit or not. So, enough of me let's do the Ups and Downs!!!

We start with this quaint Filipino cuisine called Chelle's Diner. We were able to sample their pancit canton and pata tim. Did I like their food? Yes, I did! An up for them. In fact, one of the bloggers were so satisfied with the pancit that he ordered another one. I didn't waste any time in calling him Pancit Man after that.

Wow, talk about a heavy dinner. We had two giant steaks namely the Porterhouse and the T-Bone from Steaks & Sizzles next. When they landed on our table, I noticed they weren't sizzling. Why not? That may have contributed to the steaks being a little hard to chew. Unfortunately, this part gets a down for me. Of course, it would be a whole different story if it was presented in a sizzling plate. ;)

We got the White Ramen and the Takoyaki from Hanabi. The ramen was kind of alright but there were too many bonito flakes on the Takoyaki. Since I'm not a fan of bonito flakes, this one's getting a down. That could easily be reversed when I get to try their other tempting selections though.

I rarely see a Longganisa-themed placed so my curiosity got the best of me in trying the food of Salongganisa Atbp. I enjoyed every bite of the Longganisa Party, Hinilongganisa and the Minaisang Longganisa. They get a loooong up! This is probably the only longganisa party I'd want to go to (if you know what I mean)

I remember someone telling me that when you see a food park, you'll most likely see a giant squid. He wasn't kidding as Hungry Pirate got us this enormous one and the best part about it is it was still moving. It tasted really good. I suggest eating it while it's still fresh as it won't taste that good anymore when it gets cold. As a result, they get an up as big as the squid.

Rox to Go! gave us the Overloaded Pizza and it's loaded with all the toppings we're used to seeing including bell pepper, onions and ham. Nothing to complain about here! In fact, it was so good that the other bloggers took home a whole pizza each. They were obviously curious about the other flavors. Up!

Sebastian's Fish Bowl drinks gave us Dazzling Ariel (Pink Lemonade), Sebastian's Fishbowl (Strawberry Slush) and Peppy Flounder(Green Cucumber). I loved the concept of this stall and the drinks weren't that sweet either. As a result, it gets an up!

Wing Lovers won't feel left out as Hot & Ready has a lot of tempting flavors. We got to try their Signature Buffalo and Garlic Parmesan wings. Those who love spicy food would love their signature buffalo. Those who know me know that I love parmesan wings and I loved their version so they're getting an up.

If you have a stall named Street Shakes, you must be expecting milk shakes named after famous streets in the country, right? That's exactly what you're going to get as we got to try Shawberry Boulevard and Matcha-ti Avenue. Being a Matcha lover, I wasn't expecting a lot from their Matcha milkshake but it exceeded my expectations. Up!

For a sweet ending to your wonderful meal, hop over to Scoops and Drizzle. We got a couple of customized egg waffles and one had lots of strawberries in it. It's like a crepe cone but crepe is substituted with waffle. Being a fan of dessert, both goodies had a lot of my favorite sweet stuff so it's an up for me.

Last and certainly not the least, we had a couple of cocktails since it's a Saturday night. We had the Chokeslam (Brandy + Chocolate Slush) and Love Potion (Brandy + Strawberry Slush). I loved both cocktails so this gets an up.

Final Tally: Up =      9     Down = 2

I highly recommend going to the Coast Food Park if you live near the area. They've got amazing food and live bands at night. If you're lucky, you may even catch the owner of Salongganisa Atbp singing her version of Secret Love Song. How will you know it's her? Oh, you'll feel it.
