We woke up to a weekend of good food at Legazpi Sunday Market 5th Anniversary Celebration. A diverse selection of goods ranging from specialty foods, fruits and vegetables, breads, organic products, gourmet items, fabrics, art pieces, plants and more.
We started the day with the appetizing Takoyaki Balls, Chorizo Paella and Lengua Estofada from Spanish Cuisine Paellas. I could have ordered Wagyu Paella and Paella Negra if I wasn’t so full on my first serving.
LSM offer a cultural mix of cuisine from Filipino dishes to Indonesian, Chinese, Spanish, French, Korean and more. Almost all parts of the country is represented too, from Lechon Cebu, Kapampangan Homemade Classic Empainada to Negros’ Budbud-Kabog. Ah, we can spend the whole afternoon here, celebrating good life!
We went around and found some wonderful art pieces, handcrafted items, ceramics and colorful fabrics. One can find great bargains from the many bazaar stalls. As the afternoon sizzles, more families came in to spend a day-out, probably to eat and shop together.
The Grand Buffet was the main event for the Anniversary Celebration where a long list of Legazpi Market’s food vendors offer their exquisite dishes to a One-Go Buffet for only P180.00 each. Darn, we shouldn’t have eaten earlier.
We had to leave before the heavy rain started to pour in and spent a healthy walk to the strange serenity of the usually bustling Ayala/Makati life.
Legazpi Sunday Market is located at corners of Legazpi and Rufino Streets, Legazpi Village, Makati. It’s near Union Church of Manila. Open every Sunday from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
