Space Food Park has landed its stalls and hip interiors in Pasay.
Conceptualization of the food park’s venue happened last December 2016, followed by a soft opening (March 9) and finally, their grand opening on April 22. Space Food Park came as an idea to a group of enthusiasts to build a peculiar place that would pique the public’s curiosity with a theme that was never before used – space.
Not your ordinary food park, the place is divided into three parts, mainly the Earth (ground floor), the Sky (second floor) and the Galaxy. An intergalactic “I need space” banner is the first to greet you as you enter Earth. A relaxing and natural ambiance greets you in Sky, where cute mini storm troopers and more stalls are located. Next to it is the Space Bar near the Galaxy, which is the site of Glow in the Dark Beer Pong and a fun venue for events.
The Food Stalls at Space Food Park
As we enter the park’s mother ship, we see ten stalls:
Egg-it’s drinks pair well with all the food offerings inside the food park. It comes in three specialty flavors such as Lychia, lychee juice served together with chia seeds, giving you a sweet lychee kick; the all-natural Kalamansi Cucumber flavor with added cucumber bits to add crunch and make it more refreshing; and the Blue Lemonade which gives a tangy kick from the freshness of real lemonade, best paired with some salty food. Making it even more Instagram-able are the lighting ice cubes inside the drink. Aside from their drinks, Egg-it also offers UFO Eggettes.
With Oriental crisps, Ilocano sauces and undeniably good sisig on offer, you can’t not grab a bite at OK-Nom. Try the Pancit Batil Patung (Php 175) made with poached egg along with sautéed meats and vegetables topped over noodles. Pair it with OK-Nom’s Crispy Sisig (Php 150) and the Dinaklakan (Php 150), a sinfully delicious Filipino delicacy of grilled pig parts.
Sticks and Smoke
The Sticks and Smoke stall will grab your attention through the aroma of delicious grilled meat. For those who crave for “a party of flavors in a platter” try the Big Bang Platter (Php 459). It includes pork belly, chicken qtr, isaw and tenga sticks, and sausages good for 3 to 4 people.
The Hue Café has extended its trendy frappe and coffee options at Space Food Park. Two of its trailblazing items are the Planetaro Space Frappe and Space Cookie Monster Frappe. You can also choose from Matcha Green Tea Frappe, Mango Yakult Smoothie, their bestselling Childhood Mad Frappe and Dark Saturn Space Frappe. Hue Café offers a unique variety of mouthwatering Instagram worthy frappes with unexpectedly good flavors.
With the sounds of the sizzling of the meat inviting you to give it a try, Adams Tapsizz’s surely won’t disappoint with its well-flavored and tender meats. Squid Sizzling and Tapa Sizzling are two of their best-selling dishes, which are served with their secret sauce.
Want something new with your fries? Pommes Frites has the answer. All of the fantasy sauces, dips and toppings that you’ve been dreaming of can be found here, from the cheesiest cheese and tidbits of bacon to the sweetness of Nutella. Tokyo Fries, (a mixture of nori, togarashi and Japanese mayo as their toppings) and Darth Vader Fries (served with a unique mixture of sauce- squid ink plus special cheese) are two of their Gourmet Fries specialties.
Southern Grind Bistro
Co-owned by college friends Christopher and Anton, Southern Grind Bistro introduces us the the famous mouth-watering American flavor of their Half-Rack Grilled Pork Ribs and the exciting new flavor of their Smoked Sausage Poboy, as well as some classic dishes with an Asian twist, like their Chinatown Wings.
A Persian-Filipino food stall, Colestan serves special kebab in their menu. Two of their specialties are the Kebab Platter which includes chicken, chicken wings, tandoor and beef chelo kebab for a group of four and the Special Chelo Kebab good for two.
