Looking for a food trip down south? Let me tell you about a new foodie discovery right in the heart of Alabang!
I got invited to a bloggers night at the newly-opened MARKET BASKET located at the hip (and also newly-constructed) River Park at Festival Mall Alabang. This new food destination is a modern take on our classic "dampa", where customers shop around for ingredients and have them cooked according to their request(s). MARKET BASKET has a large menu, with items that are sure to cater to each and every one's cravings.
Before we started dinner, every one had the chance to go around a bit and take photos. MARKET BASKET is spacious, clean, and has interesting, fresh ingredients that will make you anticipate your dinner with so much excitement. Let's take a quick tour through photos: (Loyal readers, you know me. More photos than words, as usual!)
Whew. A lot to see (and taste! hehe) inside Market Basket. We were then told to go back to the blogger's table to start sampling the dishes. Always, always, the best part.
Stuffed Crabs with a side of greens... heavenly.
Organic Lettuce with Assorted Fruits Salad - this one is very light and refreshing!
Lechon Kawali Sisig
Sauteed Mushroom Salad
Bottomless Red Iced Tea
Sinigang na Salmon Belly
Pusit a la Pobre
Surf and Turf. One of the best steaks I've had in a long time!
Lamb Steak - so tender, gamey, fragrant, flavorful. Oh my.
Beef Salpicao Pasta - so rich!
One of the best macarons everrrrr! (Filled with Hazelnut ganache... so yummy)
Sizzling Ube Macapuno Ice Cream (yes, those are macapuno balls)
Signature Sapin Sapin Creme Brulee
I think it took me a good half hour before I could walk... just kidding. The dishes in MARKET BASKET were all soooo good! This place warrants another visit, not just from me, but from every one who has been there!
A big thanks to the very accommodating General Manager: Chong! We all had a great time at Market Basket.
Of course I won't ever miss the opportunity to have a photo op with my restaurateur hero, Mr. Larry Cortez, and the laudable chef that night at Market Basket!
And we all took photos with the sweet lady behind the great macaronnage!
The happy group! Can you spot Ms. ARIELLA ARIDA, and CHAMP LUI PIO (crushiieeeee)
