Cucina Andare: More than just a Food Truck Market (Part 2)

As I mentioned in my first post, Cucina Andare is not just food truck market, it also has a food bazaar with a mix of new and old food, drinks and pastry vendors.

Tents were setup for the food bazaar.  I like the way it was organized because the isles were quite spacious and there was a good ventilation.  

What I've Tried
As expected, there were some familiar food stalls which we've tried already like Carlo's Kitchen, Chef Resty's Roastbeef, Big Bob's Burgers, Merry Moo Ice Cream so you can just refer to our previous reviews.  But, there were a lot of new comers too.

As a buffalo wings fan, B.Wings is one of the food stalls that caught my attention.  There's variants are quite innovative.  They have also have a store in Loyola Heights in Quezon City where they offer more than wings.  
p noy wings
P-Noy Wings (200 php/5 pieces)
For those who prefer their chicken wings simple and crispy, you should try their P-Noy Wings.  It's their original and default variant.  The pinoy has a sweet, sour and salty flavor.  Looks can be deceiving as it has a lot of ingredients blended in.  I detect that there's a caramelized ingredient and kafir lime.    The chicken skin is thin and crispy and not battered or floured which is nice.  The chicken meat is so juicy too.
black mamba
Black Mamba Wings (200 php/5 pieces)
Since I'm more into spicy stuff, I enjoyed the Black Mamba Wings more.  The Black Mamba is a spicy and tangy wings coated in cocoa.  I just love how the cocoa is able to tone down the spiciness a bit and make it quite addictive.  

Taclings (Facebook | Website)

Taclings offers two kinds of bite-size tacos: Taco Beef and the Tuna Mushroom.  I tried the Tuna Mushroom with the taco shell made with malunggay.  It was pretty good since its easy to eat and complete with salsa and garlic sauce in very piece.  You can really taste the malunggay in the tacos as the end taste that lingers on your mouth a bit.
Petra & Pillar

I got to sample the sausage offerings of Petra & Pillar.  The flavors of the Salsiccia Di Roma, Chicken Curry and Schublig & Cheese were interesting.  The sausage meat were tender, succulent and not too compact.

Crack Pie (75 php)

I liked their Crack Pie.  The sweetness and the saltiness is in perfect harmony.  The texture is pleasurable and the thickness of the crust is just right.

Italian Job (140 php)
Top Dog Gourmet Sausages makes their own sausage.  I got to try their Country Sausage and loved it!  Its filled with the right spices to tickle your taste buds in every bite.  The consistency is superb too.  I find their food quality at par with those sold by established gourmet shops.

The Chicken BBQ at Paj Grill is tender and juicy.  I find their barbecue sauce a bit more on the honey-sweet side.

Bundaberg (69 php/bottle)
Bundaberg (69 php/bottle)
Bundaberg is a carbonated drink from Australia.  You can now purchase them in groceries stores.  I tried the Peachee flavor which is so good!  It was lightly sweet,  fruity and fragrant.  My friends tried the Apple Ale and were raving about it too.  There's famous and best-selling variant is the Ginger Beer so I'm gonna try that next time. 

Update: (Tried on my second visit on December 23, 2012)

Chicken + Waffle Haus (Facebook)
C + W Sandwich (Half 80 php / Whole 150 php)
 The C + W Sandwich is a waffle sandwich topped with syrup and margarine then coleslaw and the chicken fillet.  According to the Korean owners, the concept was inspired from America.  This sanswich offers a fulfilling new experience mainly because the sweet syrup and the light spiciness of the chicken fillet complement each other. 

Famiglia e Amici

Chicken Alfredo (125 php)
Famiglia e Amici offers bang for a buck meals.  For just 125 php, they meal includes a chunky and lean grilled chicken fillet with gravy and your choice of pasta.  I chose the Chicken Alfredo which had a right blend of cream sauce and the pasta was cooked al dente.

Wagyu Paella
My family loves paella.  I was thinking of buying some for take out but the idea of the crowded public transportation took me aback.  So all I could do is wish I could have a chance to try Casa Goñi's paellas next time.  I'd go for the Wagyu Paella and their Paella Negra.
