Your Food Park Guide at CommunEATy Roces Food Hub

Food parks are now the trendiest dining spots to date. Clustered together in one location, concessionaires offer variety in food options peppered with gimmicks to entice customers. Every vicinity in the metro has a featured food park, that compete for diversity in cuisines and and hip and lively concepts.

CommunEATy, a food park in Quezon City was a worthy discovery. It has notable food park characteristics that set it apart from the rest of the booming food hubs in Manila. Let me take you to a short tour.

CommunEATy opened last October 20, 2016 and has only 13 concessionaires. The owner ensures that each food stall is unmatched with the rest of its neighbors to avoid competition. It has high ceilings, big dining space, and a private and air-conditioned function room where you can hold events. I find it convenient to roam around without having to bump with the other customers. It has sufficient parking space and the guard is friendly to assist you around.

1. Puesto

Puesto features the novelty Mexican best sellers such as Nachos, Tacos, Quesadillas, Burritos and Mexican Pollo.

3. Adobo Project

Adobo Project is owned by Aiza Seguerra and Liza Dino, and an extension of their existing business: Adobo in a Jar. The stall amuses us with well-curated adobo bowls with salted egg toppings. You can choose from chicken to pork, and plain or spicy.

Diamond in the Rough’s Personal Favorites

To be honest, it was hard identifying my top picks. I was taken aback with the number of food choices laid on the table all at once, that it’s hard to distinguish one taste from the other. I am weak on buffets and I love enjoying my food one at a time. However, these creations impressed me for a reason or two.

  • E.X.O’s Chicken Isaw- The intestines are cleaned well that there was no taste of bitterness.
  • Takoraisu’s California Maki- The ingredients are fresh and the size was bigger compared to the ordinary. The presentation is nice too. The mayo complemented the rice and crab sticks well.
  • Adobo Project’s Spicy Adobo bowl – The meat was tasty and the serving size is good for two. The salted egg toppings are a perfect match to the savory adobo.
  • S.A.L.T’s Strawberry Milkshake- The milkshake was velvety and creamy, but not overly sweet.
  • Tokyo Tempura’s Crazy Tempura Series- The plain tempura is already an awesome snack or appetizer to begin with. But to invent different flavors is another thing.

    Entertainment to Look Forward to

    Every Monday to Wednesday, guests can enjoy acoustic sets. On weekends, DJ performances can change your mood at the bar.

    Why We Love CommunEATy

    While the other food parks boast about hosting several concessionaires in a big location, CommunEATy simplifies everything : from the handpicked booths focusing on one theme, to the high quality food and availability of an aircon room for your private occasions. The space is breathable and not too congested. There is a place for everyone. CommunEATy is not solely focused on catering to “millenials” – the place is ideal for families and friends too.
