I have been pestering my sister to take me to the Salcedo Market. So last Saturday, my request was granted. I fetched my sister from work at 6AM and we headed to Makati to go to Salcedo Market for breakfast…Weeee!
As we entered Salcedo Park, we were greeted by a festive Christmas Tree… Merry Christmas, Salcedo Market!
When we entered the market, I felt like I was transported to weekend flea markets in Australia which I have experienced when I was there… There was a lot of people there, there are an equal number of locals & foreigners there. The foreigners are mostly the vendors there. I have a hard time choosing what breakfast I want.
|All types of Lasagne|
|Herbs! I want….|
|Pies , cakes & free taste! Yey!|
|Carabao cuisine… yum! hehe…|
|My sis tried some crickets…|
Crickets tasted like a salty bopis…. Perfect with a bit of ketchup? haha….
|Fresh swimming fishes|
|Marco Lobregat selling expensive Mushroom|
|Want some chili drops?|
|Horchata: Mexican Rice Cooler|
|Cacao & Leche Horchata|
|Free taste of Thai Salads..|
|Free taste of Christmas ham… Yummy! I tell u…|
I bought this because I got intrigued. Rice cooler? Does it contain rice? The vendor graciously explained to me that this is a Mexican inspired concoction. It is made from ground rice. It has a unique after-taste. My sis said, it taste like HongKong, hehe…
My sis picked the Nasi Goreng and Sate Babe
I tasted a bit of my sis food choice. It was so yummy! The Sate Babe needs more peanut sauce but besides that, it was good. I love the side dish of crunchy sweet-spicy dried fish (dilis) that I mix with rice. It was perfection.
We had so much fun that morning, we even lost track of the time. I told my sis that she should take Mama & Papa there when they visit because I am pretty sure they will enjoy it. Salcedo Community Market is a perfect weekend destination for families, lovers and friends…
