Great Food Finds At Midnight Mercato

After we left the Ayala Triangle Gardens light show the Little Girl asked that we head over to Bonifacio High Street, so off we went.   She and the Little Boy had a great time running around the play area.

She wanted a close up pic first

Then a long shot of the gigantic teddy she was
hiding behind of

I love that pets are allowed here.  The Little Ones had a fun time pet watching. They especially loved this super cute chow chow.  They asked it's owner if they could have a photo with it, so glad she said yes. 

Taking a brief break
After a while she got tired from all the running and asked if we could go to Midnight Mercato to grab a bite to eat before heading home.  I was kind of hesitant to go because it was getting late.  But the Little Girl really wanted to go and since I was not really satisfied with our dinner at Pho 24 off we went to Midnight Mercato.  We have been to Mercato Centrale before and we loved the food finds there, so we were very excited to make new discoveries.  

Since it  would be our first time to visit Midnight Mercato I was not sure of the hours operations.   We arrived at 9PM but apparently the market opens at 10PM.  I was trying to convince the Little Girl that we should head home because it was going to be an hour wait, but with her sad eyes she asked us to stay, so stay we did. I am glad we stayed because the food items we got  were all worth the wait.  Everything we bought was absolutely delicious. 

Now I must inform you that the following photos are not very good, it was my Sister-in-Law who took them since I was busy getting the food.

Taclings is the Little Girl's favorite food find at Soderno, so that glad that they had these here too.  Since we are not beef eaters we always choose to have the tuna filling.   We love the combination of the tuna, garlic mayo, salsa, and of course the wonderfully creative taco shell.  Love that they serve these in old egg cartons, it is so convenient.  The owner was there, such a lovely and kind Lady.  She deserves all the success her business is reaping.  There is always a long line at Taclings so prepare to line up and wait, but it is super worth it. 

These are Charlie's Pritchon wraps, they were the first ones to come up with the pritchon idea. I've had pritchon before but never from Charlie's.  I guess the original is really the best. The lechon was lean but very flavorful just like how I like it, not greasy at all.  I loved how crunchy the skin was, with every bite you could hear a crackling sound. The combination of the lechon,cucumber, chili and mayo is a definite winner in my book.  For sure I will be getting this again on my next visit. 

I read very good reviews about Luigi Mulach's dishes at the Ultimate Taste Test 6, so when I saw that he had a booth here I had to try his chicken cordon bleu with aligue mayo.  One word for me describes this dish "SARAP!".  I know that it seems weird to pair chicken cordon bleu with aligue mayo but it totally works and worth all the calories.

Next time we are in the BGC area at nighttime we will definitely be dropping by again, I am excited to make more food discoveries in the dead of night : )
