Buendia Food by the Court

Food Parks has been a huge trend here in the metro. they are sprouting from here and there, present in almost every place and corner of the city. Just recently, I happen to visit one of the newest food park in Makati that happened to stand out in the area of Buendia.

The concept of this place is to combine two things that Filipinos love most: Basketball and Food. It's a great place to dine, chill and refresh. It's like a sports bar beside an actual basketball court.

The stalls at Buendia Food by the Court have been carefully curated to complement each other to make something unique to everyone. They have a variety of food options to choose from. During our visit, we were treated to experience foods from all over the world.  It feels like we went to Japan, China, United States of America, and to the Philippines. What a great experience it was.

Here are some of the food i was able to try during my visit:

1. Little Kodo

First stop is this little Japanese stall that offers close to authentic Japanese cuisine at an affordable price. Little Kodo serves famous Japanese street foods such as Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki that most Filipinos love.
