New Food Parks for More Barkada Feasting
By Shen Mascariñas
The charm of food parks is irresistible, especially for ravenous groups of friends. How can one say no to a great collection of food concepts, housed under one roof (or sky for outdoor ones) and hosted in a cool, laidback environment? The answer is obvious. One simply doesn’t and instead calls the barkada for some epic feasting.
