MERCADO DEL LAGO
3rd week of May 2018, Mercado del Lago announced its soft opening via social media. It got wide-spread to the netizens quickly same day! Many thought that this new attraction in the city where you can see floating huts on Laguna Lake is somewhat a resort or a high-class restaurant. But what we did not know is that Mercado del Lago is just another food park with an awesome feels and fantastic view of the lake.Napadaan lang kanina.

THUMBS UP TO THESE✅ hindi po amoy ang lawa (pero malagkit yung feeling ng hangin)
✅ mahangin hindi mainit sa gabi
✅ security guards are scattered and I noticed a lot of CCTVs around the place
✅ there are plenty of seats. Hindi ka mauubusan.
THUMBS DOWN TO THESE❎ centralized drinks. Walang iced tea.
❎ only a few food choices.
❎ nakikikain mga lamok. Mosquitoes are everywhere. You might wanted to bring or wear repellent before going.
MY PERSONAL OBSERVATIONFor now, this food park is on "hype". But we don't know what will happen after a few months. Almost half of their food stalls are also seen from The Nest Food and Lifestyle Park in Brgy. Ususan, also in Taguig. I can see how they are striving to keep the business alive. With their efforts, people still come to them and keep coming back just what I do.
The Nest was the biggest food park I have seen in 2017. But Mercado del Lago definitely took it over this year. Although, The Nest still has more food stalls.
Regarding the safety, I salute the management of Mercado del Lago for providing such a plenty of security guards in the whole area. CCTVs are around the place. Even before you get inside the food hall, you will be inspected first. Kudos to that!
Another thing I was quite disappointed of is the centralized drinks supplier. One stall to cater all. What's on their table? Canned and bottled drinks. Name it! Coke, Sprite, Royal, SanMig, C2 and what not. Oh, they also sell bottled water. Well, the idea is somewhat the same with The Nest (why am I keep comparing them?) but the one in Ususan has lemonade on pitcher. I just don't like the idea of me buying two canned drinks for almost P100 because I was thirsty.
Those are just my own opinion through my personal experience. Share yours on the comment section below.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Bring an insect repellent especially if you want to eat on the stilt on nighttime.
- The stilts are on a first come, first serve basis so you better go early.
- Food and drinks are averaging at PHP70.00 to PHP150.00 per person.
- ENTRANCE FREE

HOW TO GET TO MERCADO DEL LAGOI resided in Taguig for two decades and the intersection in Lower Bicutan was my day-to-day way to school. There was no C6 before nor Lakeshore Hall. So I made this directions according to my knowledge about the place.
Catch a bus en route to SM Bicutan. Drop off SM Bicutan Exit of SLEX. Cross the footbridge to DOST. Look for a white tricycle (fare is P8). Dropoff Jollibee Lower Bicutan. Cross the intersection head to C6. Look for the Taguig Lakeshore hall. It is just next to it.
Catch a jeepney from Pasig Simbahan or Palengke en route to Bicutan. Then drop off Lower Bicutan. Cross the intersection head to C6. Look for the Taguig Lakeshore hall. It is just next to it.
From Laguna, Sucat or Muntinlupa:
Catch a bus en route to EDSA (make sure to ride to a bus that will pass the Bicutan exit of SLEX). Drop off Bicutan Cross the footbridge to DOST. Look for a white tricycle (fare is P8). Dropoff Jollibee Lower Bicutan. Cross the intersection head to C6. Look for the Taguig Lakeshore hall. It is just next to it.

BEST TIME TO VISIT
The best time to visit Mercado del Lago is around at night time where you can see the place surrounded by bulbs that light up the whole food park. Even the hallways are lighted up with lanterns that make the place ideal for picture taking.
