Some local shops also thrive in BF because of their fun and fashionable products.

Step Rite! has a wide variety of footwear like flipflops, sandals, flats and wedges in all colors, shapes and sizes. Originally from Pagsanjan, Laguna, the owners decided to open a shop in BF years ago to cater to customers from Alabang, Muntinlupa and Parañaque. With the good quality and cheap prices (as low as P200), the shop continues to attract buyers.

The little store of My Bead-a-holic is heaven to those who fancy making accessories and adding accents to their clothes. Beads, stones, charms, laces, wires and ready-made accessories, both local and imported, are available for very reasonable prices.

Shopping in Ruins Night Market is a-must to experience. Clothes, shoes, accessories, gadgets, and, of course, DVDs can be bought at bargain prices. The shopping budget basically depends on the shopper's haggling skills.

As if having numerous establishments is not enough, BF also has its own mall called the Pergola Mall. The mall has its own Timezone, Gloria Maris, Figaro, Rosemary Fried Chicken, ElFav Ice Creamery, Pier One Bar and Grill, Sugarhouse, David's Salon, and California Nails and Day Spa, among other establishments.

Those at the Pergola Mall can also access Robinsons Supermarket which continues to promote wellness. Handyman and Robinsons Appliances are also located in the area for your home improvement and appliance needs.

    Little Rio is another great restaurant! It's next to Sinangag Express. Little Rio's a Japanese restaurant. We tried out their gyoza and their chicken teriyaki. It was the best I've tasted ever! The gyoza didn't taste like it was full of fillers (i.e. flour, cornstarch). The chicken teriyaki was very interesting and had a crispy exterior, but didn't taste like those breaded teriyakis that tasted more like flour.

    I'm from nearby Alabang and my friends and I hang out in BF every Friday. We eat at Tavern, drink at Cabooze, head to BoNa/Starbucks for coffee, then head to Baliwag's for Karaoke! No need to travel to Makati/Fort to have a good time. I love BF.

    ..Wow actually made an article of BF Homes. Grew up there and it's hard to imagine that the only establishments back then was Tropical Hut, Shakeys and LA Supermarket.

    I never knew that that small burger joint beside yamaha is called Gourmet's Palate! Everyone I know just calls it Charbroiled. Haha. Great feature on BF! I love my hometown's steady vibes.

    Now, we only go to BF for two reasons:

    2. Feast with Tapsi at SEx before going home

    I can still remember the days. Back in HS, if you have a new basketball shoes and you don't want to use it in outdoor courts for trainings and practices.. We go to BF Ruins to shop for an alternative (the term: pang-laspag) but cheap (imitations) rubber shoes.

    Wala bang medyo affordable naman at malapit sa Cubao? Napaka-Alta Sociedad naman niyan! Kapag affordable 100 below ang food pero yummy pa din ha at medyo pwede tambayan ng mga pasusyal like moi!
