MEGAWORLD LIFESTYLE MALLS: Eastwood City’s Weekend Bizarre Food Market

Eastwood City is encouraging everyone to take their palate on an adventure with unusual dishes at its Weekend Bizarre Food Market, happening on Sept. 18 – 20 and 25 – 27 at the second floor of Eastwood Mall.

Caffera 1

For beverages, Dielle’s Honey Wine provides a different take on a glass of vino with flavors like Duhat and Bignay on the table. Those who love photography and coffee will surely enjoy a cup of joe from Caffera, the country’s first photography themed café, who will also be setting up shop at the Bizarre Food fair.

For an unusual twist on desserts, shoppers can try ice cream with liquid nitrogen from Lava Ice Cream Café and enjoy luxurious flavors like Dark Chocolate, Tahitian Vanilla and Salted Caramel. Halo-halo fans can get an even more decadent experience with Patio Vera’s Fried Halo-Halo. Papa Diddi’s also has fresh takes on ice cream flavors like Tarragon, Mango Ginger and Forbidden Rice.


For a throwback treat, try a popsicle with yummy local flavors like Mais Con Hielo, Buko Bits and even Kape Barako at Ice Pops MNL. Or what about cake featuring popular local chocolates and candies? The Baker’s Table offers Butterball Caramel Cake, Haw Haw Cake, Orange Swits Cheesecake and Flat Tops Chocolate Cake, among others.


Kids will also love Pouf Cotton Candy, with their yummy cotton candy flavours that also comes in fun animal shapes like elephants and dinosaurs.

Love seafood? Try more exotic varieties like ginataang kuhol (rival snails in coconut cream) and kinunot na pagi (spicy stingray in coconut cream) from Aling Doris.

An iconic Filipino dish also gets a unique twist with Kitchen Queen’s Adobo in a Jar and spicy adobo mushrooms at Perfect Mushrooms (who, by the way, also offers other mushroom treats like mushroom chicharon and pickled oyster mushrooms).

Bacon fans can discover even more ways to enjoy this delish dish. The Beef Barn is offering Caimito Smoked Bacon. Bacon also gets better when paired with another universal favourite – chocolate! Ryan’s Kitchen is serving up bacon covered with dark chocolates and almond.

These are just a few of the unique food finds shoppers can try at Eastwood City’s Weekend Bizarre Food Market, which continues the series of fun food events in Eastwood City as part of its Food Artistry Campaign. Launched last July, the Food Artistry campaign hopes to encourage foodies and amateur chefs to create their own art on a plate.

RYAN’S KITCHEN: Authentic smoked products and more

Meat-smoking is all the rage again! Though mankind has been doing this since prehistory to preserve meats and fish. They found out that the smoke absorbed by the meats and fish not only preserves it, it also keeps away the flies!

Would love to experience having a meat-smoker (and my sister will thank me for it), but the next best thing to experience this is to find authentic smoked products – to cook and eat instead that is.

Went to Eastwood’s Weekend Spice Souk three weeks ago and chanced upon RYAN’S KITCHEN. What caught my eye wasreal wood hickory smoked’ on their signage. Was in a bit of a hurry so made a mental note when returning the next weekend.

Had a bag of their Nacho chips with salsa and cheese dip and noticed it was better than the usual. The chips remained crunchy and their salsa and cheese dips are so good (they have to bottle it). Blogged about it, researched and found out that they have a store in Greenhills which offers more than just nachos and AHA! its also the same store which carries the smoked-meats!

Long story short, met Ms. Camille Lontok of Ryan’s Kitchen and yes, she personally does almost everything with their smoked products! Every customer is assured that each product is made without chemicals or other preservatives, properly handled and freshly vacuum-sealed.

Anyway, here’s my experience with some of their products (there’s still some in the fridge and will be in a separate blog post). Plus the list and descriptions of their products after the skip. I highly recommend their products, try it!

RYAN’S KITCHEN: Authentic hickory smoked meats, nachos and more

RYAN’S KITCHEN offers smoked products (bacon, porkloin, hungarian sausage and chicken).

They developed a new line for smoked treats because they are believers of natural, healthy and delicious food and they go the extra mile to concoct and develop good products.

Among the very few in the Philippines who’s into authentic smoking, they use hickory wood from America and only prime natural ingredients – no nitrites, sulfites, sodium erythorbate or other preservatives.
