IL Mercanti - Happy Food Trip!

Good vibes on a Friday night for me and some of my blogger friends as we were invited by the organizers of Il Mercanti in Metrowalk for some free food courtesy of our dear MissGennD. Admittedly, for someone who commutes, Metrowalk is kind of a not-so-visible enough place plus it's at the parking lot behind the bars in Metrowalk. It is like a treasure chest waiting to be discovered and opened.

The Il Mercanti is a food heaven for all those who loves food and enjoys food tripping. There's all kinds of food there from Korean to Japanese to your favorite street foods like humongous isaw and even Lechon from Cebu and some baked scallops. Yum.

With Ms. Connie Sison
We were able to meet and take a picture with one of the organizers of the event, Ms. Connie Sison, a journalist from GMA 7. She was a very nice and accommodating host, indeed. Aside from the free food tripping we've had, she also gave us an additional gift certificate so I was able to buy sushi, maki, kani salad and a cake from MedChef by Chef Hasset Go to take home.

Although the venue was not commuter-friendly; fret not when it rains for the whole place is tented (is there such a word? LOL) and it's very condusive to dining. They have maintained the cleanliness of the place and that's two thumbs up for me. Only, please do something about the parking space. We don't want Tiffie forgetting where she parked her ride again, eh? LOL

Great food with great friends. Amazing Friday night indeed.

Il Mercanti is open from Wednesday to Saturday, 7:00pm - 6:00am
