A Delish Idea for a Friday Gimik: Banchetto

Every 12 midnight Friday until 11AM Saturday (overnight) one side of Ortigas Emerald Avenue is closed off to motorists to make way for a unique, gluttonous experience, that is the Banchetto-Emerald.

Inspired from the Italian word that means "a feast", Banchetto is a Street Food Fiesta. Numerous stalls, that fill the street, offer wide array of food to delight the senses. Whatever you fancy - Filipino, Italian, Japanese or any cuisine - you're sure to find it there.

With Banchetto call center agents in Ortigas area who work night shift can still enjoy a Friday gimik :)

Our favourite food stall is Le Blanc by real (not sure) chefs.


Their food is a bit pricey but hey, the serving is hefty! (Wow, it rhymes :-| ). I am addicted to their lasagne and tiramisu.


A feast in the Philippines is not complete without cancer-causing charcoal barbecue.


Relyenong Talong (stuffed eggplant), anyone?


Or maybe you fancy some kebabs?


Pasta galore!


Delectable, cholesterol-loaded Shawarma


Japanese delights - takoyaki (dumplings)


If you still have room for more, why not squeeze in some of these yummy desserts.


Of course, food is more enjoyable with the company of good friends.
