The Guide to Quezon City Food Parks

The north is a bustling food hub.


( Food parks have been a common sight all over Metro Manila as of late 2015, and Quezon City seems to have lots of them. It's a wonderful concept that solves every big group's dilemma of finding a place to eat, simply because there's always something for everyone. In case you need a bit of help deciding, we round up the food parks you can check out when you're up north, as well as the stalls you need to visit in each one. Happy eating!



The Yard

Open daily from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m.


The Yard is the brainchild of Anne Barbara Soriano, Hazel Soriano-Farinas, Brian Farinas, Cohleen Papo-Soriano, and Julius Papo. They claim to be the first ever multi-level food park in Manila, featuring dishes from all over the world that include Asian, European, and American fare. With 30 carefully picked and experienced tenants, it’s a haven for adventurous and curious diners. Come nightfall, the park is lively and buzzing with DJs, bands, and artists.
