During the course of this pandemic, many of us have gotten accustomed to ordering for food online. And while it is indeed safer and more convenient, there’s a big downside — ordering a spread of your favorites from different restaurants usually requires separate delivery fees.
Our favorite food bazaar Mercato Centrale has solved this with Mercato United Kitchen, bringing their one-stop-shop concept right into your home — all for one delivery fee.
Located at the ground floor of Ayala Malls Circuit, they’ve got more than 19 restaurants and home-based food businesses and over 400 dishes to choose from. Whatever you’re craving, they’ve got it covered.
Ordering is super simple: Open your Zing app, tap on ZingEats, and look for Mercato Centrale among the wide array of restaurant choices. Once you tap Mercato Centrale, you can browse through what’s available and order from there. Easy!
To get you started on building that fabulous feast at home, we’ve put together five picks to try from Mercato United Kitchen.
If you’re in the mood for a tender, juicy, 12-hour-cooked barbecue meal, Wild Smoke has you covered. Their Smoked Brisket Rice Meal (P350) uses USDA beef and is cooked low and slow for half a day, and comes with rice and a side of mashed potatoes, egg, buttered corn and carrots, or coleslaw.
Chef Rocky’s Kitchen
Craving for rice noodles and Asian flavors? The Char Kway Teow (P199) from Chef Rocky’s Kitchen is bound to hit all the right spots with its rice noodles stirred with shrimp and veggies in a sweet and spicy sauce. It brings together the flavors of Singaporean, Malaysian, and Chinese tastes for a dish that’s truly *chef’s kiss*.
The Gourmet Kitchen by Gourmet Farms
The beloved Tagaytay spot is now within (easier) reach. If you’re in the mood for a salad that’s fresh, rich, and has a little bit of bite, the Mango Aragula Salad (P195) is the one to try. It contains arugula, fresh mango, parma ham, bleu cheese, and cashew nuts all tossed in a mango vinaigrette.
If you’ve got a hankering for milk tea but want to try something new and novel, Kahatea has your back. Proudly the first and only Filipino-themed milk tea brand in the country, Kahatea offers flavors such as Iskrambol (P133), Yema (P212), Kundol (P133), and many others.
Just from the name, you’ll probably get that Tipsy Cream makes boozy frozen treats, and you’re not wrong — they’ve got flavors like Bourbon Custard with Candied Bacon, Sangria Sorbet, and Hot Chocolate Brandy (all flavors starting at P250 for 8oz).
But equally interesting is their plant-based flavors Mango Banana (made with coconut milk) and Vanilla Bean (made using handmade almond milk and vanilla beans).
