I took an opportunity to take my daughter on an impromptu foodie adventure (and on a weekday at that!) at Savour Manila.
My daughter recently started her internship/work immersion in a company in Quezon City. Since it is a short distance from my office, I usually drop her off and pick her up from her workplace.
On this particular afternoon, we found ourselves with a couple of hours to while away and we decided to meet up at my office then go out to eat.
She was all set for some Japanese food but as we were walking along Tomas Morato, the Savour Manila food park caught our eye.
For our first time here, we decided on Hawker Street, the stall that offers Asian street food. We shared a bowl of laksa (Php200), my daughter’s first encounter with this Peranakan soup dish, and two sticks of bacon yakitori wraps (Php100).
We requested for the laksa to be mildly spicy, given that we both have low tolerance for spicy food. While the broth has a nice balance spiciness from the curry and creaminess from the coconut milk, the noodles used are pasta noodles instead of the more authentic vermicelli or laksa noodles.
The bacon wrapped asparagus spears and enoki mushrooms served as our meaty viand. We really couldn’t say anything much about the bacon wraps except that bacon makes everything better.
We even shared a giant glass of iced tea from the store two stalls down.
Afterwards, we had our dessert at Cafe Churro.
We found our first foray at the food park to be a great experience, a break from our usual food haunts.
Hawker Street is located at Savour Manila, 238 Tomas Morato Ave., Brgy. South Triangle, Quezon City.
