(SPOT.ph) There are many reasons to look forward to the weekend, like sleeping in, catching up with friends, and eating out—in new restaurants and places, of course. The Greenfield Weekend Market gives you a taste of everything good about weekends.
Only a few blocks away from the MRT Shaw Boulevard Station, the weekend market has all sorts of sellers lining its perimeter. Here, you can expect piles of pre-loved books and vinyl records to dig through amid various Asian and Western dishes. That’s not all—there’s always chill music come nighttime.

But unlike the usual sisig, these snackable sticks won’t give you a heart attack because it’s made of lean chicken breast. Interestingly, chicken tendons are added to the mixture to add crunch and texture. It's great for pairing with beer.
