Legaspi Sunday Market: Different Cuisines in One Place (Makati)

Makati, Metro Manila, Philippines

Mom has been wanting to check out the Legaspi Sunday Market after hearing about it from some friends.  Well, what my mom wants, she always gets so we decided to have our lunch there a few Sundays ago.

The Legaspi Sunday Market is found in a parking space at the corner of Legaspi Street and Salcedo in Legaspi Village in Makati.  It opens at 7 am and ends in 2 pm.  I suggest going early as some are sold out or closing before 2pm.  Plus, the heat is more intense in the afternoon.  
Unlike other food markets, the Legaspi Sunday Market offers a wider cuisine choice so I opted to categorize the vendors through that.  The price range is wide in this market.  Some can be as expensive as those offered in full-blown restaurants.  I also noticed that many market goers are foreigners who are willing to spend for quality food.  There are also non-food stores but I didn't have time to check them out.

I failed to take note of the name of this store.  But, they sold our favorite Puto and Cochinta from Marilao, Bulacan branded as "Popular".  We always buy some wherever we see those available.  It's really good you should try it.  They have the plain white puto, plain cochita and puto and cochinta hybrid.

Imang Salud's classic ensaimada (180 php) is said to be of the heirloom recipes of Imang Dayrit-Santos of San Fernando, Pampanga that has been passed down through 3 generations so we were enticed to try it.  It is bigger than the usual.  I loved how soft and fluffy it is and topped with grated queso de bola.  I didn't like that it was topped with sugar though.

We tried the Thai Milk Tea (45 php) from Chang Thai.  It was pretty good.  They also sell Thai Fried Rice with Pork (80 php), Catfish Salad (200 php) and more.

Khun Caesar's Thai Kitchen Phad Thai is freshly cooked with TLC according to the menu.  True to their word, each batch is freshly cooked so you have to wait as long as 15 minutes sometimes.  You  have three choices: Phad Thai with Shrimp (245 php), Phad Thai with Chicken (225 php) and Phad Thai Vegetarian (200 php).  We got the Phad Thai with Shrimp and as you can see we got a hefty serving of Phad Thai with three large prawns!  It's good for sharing.  I highly recommend this as it's one the best pad thais I've tried.

We tried the Mutton Masala (250 php) or Curry at Maharajas Kebabs.  There was a lot of bones but they were really clean-tasting and tender.  The curry blend won over my taste buds.  There are only a few food establishments that serve mutton so I'm quite happy with this discovery.

The Wagyu Shawarma (200 php) of Rafik Shawarma took some a while to be ready but it was worth it!

I've never seen so many baklava variants before.  Unfortunately, I skipped this for another dessert option. =(

The Chicken Souvalki (150 php) at My Big Fat Greek Kouzina was delicious!  It's got chicken breast bits, tomatoes, onions, parsley and tzatziki for sauce then wrapped in pita.

I had a really good Moroccan cuisine experience at Kasbah and was quite saddened when it closed their Fort branch so I was happy to see this!  I tried the Tagine de Kefta (185 php) which I'm told was their best-seller. It was meatball tagine Australian halal beef in tomato base with sicilian olives and eggs with pita bread.  It has the strongest tangy tomato taste I've ever encountered so I had to eat it with pita.  The family was overwhelmed by its flavor but I acquired the taste for it.  It was also my first time for the Almond Briwat (100 php/6 pcs.) so I ordered one for dessert.  It is a triangle pastry glazed in honey with a sweet potato, almond and rose water filling.  I liked it because I love floral flavors.  The family thought otherwise so lucky because more for me. =)

This cheerful Taiwanese seller is really good at suggesting what you can buy for a perfect organic salad.  She's so nice that she even gives samples that you can try on your salad.  We bought a lot of fresh vegetables from her.

There's surely a lot more to try at the Legaspi Sunday Market so I look forward to my next visit.  Any suggestions on which I should try next?
