Mech and Myself decided to try out the latest of the many night markets that is scattered around the metro. Soderno, located along madrigal avenue – Alabang, is the latest (based on the info i gathered) of the many sought after food hubs during fridays and the weekends! charging towards the place with an empty stomach, i was prepared for the food adventure that is before me and my companion.
Both Mech and I, started the night with a burger from Big Bob’s Charcoal Burgers (which according to Anton Diaz of “Our Awesome Planet” is one of Mercato’s favorites). Both of us ordered the Big Bob’s special, which costs 180 pesos, but dont let the price take over your consciousness and deem this burger as expensive. it actually is worth the price. my impression of the burger was a taste combination of some of my favorite burger joints like Burger king, Wendy’s and Hardee’s. although offering a different twist with regard the tandem of the softness of the bacon and the charred to perfection patty.
After my romance with Big Bob’s Special Burger and a cup of Melon Drink, my small party of two was joined by a fellow Helios Project International photographer and blogger Donna Kiritharan. Alabang was her turf, and having her around would be fun! the three of us then set forth to meet another Helios Beauty, Robelene Rayala A.k.a. Robs, who by the way, was at Soderno the entire time. After the inevitable catching up and exchange of witty and funny anecdotes that is our everyday life, rob and her party decided to part ways with ours, leaving us hungry for more food and exchange of stories about life, love and career (cheesy!)
after another round of walking around the Soderno food vicinity, we procured some much talked about Iced Tea at Brewed Leaf : Homemade Iced Teas. the difference is very noticeable as compared to the regular iced tea. i would recommend the Brewed Leaf: Honey Citrus Sweet Tea which costs 30 pesos only on a 16oz plastic cup. this is the much needed elixir for a very hot and humid night during yesterday’s food adventure.
the Adventure at Soderno was much needed after a very mind tearing and stressful week! and of course to top it off, the experience wouldn’t be complete had it not been for the 3 friends and companions that i was with on this food adventure.
