With so many food parks sprawling around the metro nowadays, I know you have your favorites. I am sure this featured food park is not on your list because they recently just opened but has captured many hearts early on. Let us see if they can now be your favorite too.

I think food parks are magnet to people because come on, who doesn't like eating right? It is basically a food court which we see usually in malls that has a wide selections of food to eat in a certain place with specific themes and a number of entertainment. I visited a number of food parks near our place recently and one differs from each other mainly on their combination of cuisines to choose from and their selected theme or ambiance. But Brad's Family and Friends Diner (our featured food park) or locally called "BFF Diner" is different.

Mayor Marcy was there!

The place was previously an event's place named "Braderie" where most likely the name of the food park came from. BFF Diner is currently the only food park I know that doesn't cater any alcoholic beverages which makes them apart from other food parks. It brands them a child friendly food park that focuses on catering the family and wholesome get together of friends. To add to that, all food stalls there got family packages ready which customers can save money because it is discounted than the usual meal if you order individually.

Discovering great places to eat is one of the things that is very fun to share. On a personal note, I make it a point that a number of my friends or family go and try eating there as well since I am very curious on how will they find it. Will we have the same reaction after or will it be different? (and many more questions similar to that)

Honestly, I have eaten here quite a number of times already and just blogged about it now since I became quite busy with other things (erm, like work hehe). I'll share my favorite dishes here provided by the featured establishment so that in the event you have the chance to try it, feel free to let me know if you find them good or not.

Introducing to you one of the break-out food establishments in Marikina, our feature for this post - Chevy BurgerThe name is catchy since the word "chevy" is very seldom used which means closely like "to chase or hunt". Combining it with burger, giving you a statement which may mean "A burger worthy of finding".

Ideally, we all have our own version of collections as a person. Our interest defines it and we unconsciously collect it either physically or in our minds. We invest on things that we love and have passion for, rarely some collections are just over the top, exceeding the majority's expectation and are recognized by many.

Tangible or physical collections mainly give happiness and satisfaction to its owner when their eyes lay on them but few have the opportunity to share it with others especially to the public, raising awareness and interest about this especially collected items. And this museum is a perfect example.
