You’re also helping students while eating. What could be better than that?

One of the simple luxuries that we really miss right now is eating out with friends and family. Enjoying each other’s company while discovering new food finds may seem risky during this time of pandemic.This makes many of us still hesitant to dine inside restaurants and malls.

With all that has happened, maybe it’s time to come together again and have great food the way it should be in the new normal: in a safe, socially distanced, open-air dining environment.

Mercato Centrale, one of the country’s premier small food business incubators, in collaboration with Bonifacio Global City, the Restaurant Owners of the Philippines, and the City of Taguig,  invites diners to “High StrEAT,” a vibrant, dine-in and takeout food market in Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater (located along 7th avenue).

Starting Oct. 15, 1:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, people can have a taste of the bestsellers and newest culinary creations of BGC’s top chefs and dining establishments, favorite homegrown restaurants, and Mercato street food favorites at surprisingly affordable prices.

Indulge in the signature treats of top restaurants including Gallery by Chef Chele, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, The Mango Tree Manila, Brotzeit, El Chupacabra, The Alley by Vikings, Our Kitchen Café by Chef Laudico, Monga, Kashmir, A’toda Madre, Gourmet Farms, Corner Tree Café, FRNK Milk Bar, La Picarra, Metro Kusina, Ramen Keisuke, and Chef Eve’s very own Deli in the City!

The food market will also have all-time family favorites like Mission Wings, Monga Taiwanese Fried Chicken, and Potato Corner alongside popular Mercato merchants like Mamay’s Ihaw, Ngon Vietnamese Deli, Chef Ian Sushi, Please’N Thank You Café, Conflict Kitchen, Kuye Crepes, Roll Guru, Orime Japanese Jellies, 3001 Burgers, Dino’s, Guagua’s Best, and many more.

On top of helping both restaurants and small food vendors get back on their feet, Mercato will also be donating a portion of its earnings to Project Aral, a program of Save the Children Foundation that provides educational materials and alternative learning platforms to children from low income families who have been severely affected by the pandemic.

High StrEat has secured the approval of Task Force Safe City Taguig for the health and safety protocols that will be strictly implemented during the food market. Let’s support the food and beverage industry. Get one dish at a time at High StrEat BGC, where everything restarts!
