UP-AyalaLand Technohub: Mezza Norte Food Trip

Mezza Norte - live acoustic band

Sometime last July, I saw a feature on TV about the newest night food market here in the Metro, the Mezza Norte. I haven't been to any food market yet because most of them are far from my place so when I heard that this one is in Quezon City, me and my friend scheduled a food trip there. It's been raining during the last weekend of July and early August so we're only able to visit the place mid of August.

Mezza Norte is a night food market in UP-Ayala Land Technohub along Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City. It offers various dishes from various food entrepreneurs accredited by the same organizers as that of Mercato Centrale in Bonifacio Global City. It is open from Thursday to Saturday, 6PM - 3AM and features live acoustic entertainment. It also has free wi-fi for those who love to always get connected (online).

Anyway, here are some of the dishes, drinks and desserts available in Mezza Norte:

Pinoy street foods!!! isaw - 35 pesos each...
It's been ages since I last tried this famous Pinoy street food isaw, a barbecued chicken intestine, there were many people buying it so I was tempted and bought one. In fairness, it tasted good especially with the vinegar dip poured over it, yum!!! :))

more street foods!!!
baked lasagna, etc...
yummy pork sisig here, bought one for take home, 110 pesos per order, if I remembered it right.
Vigan empanada and okoy!!
I bought two empanadas that night, one from here (Vigan empanada) and one from Ilocos empanada (Ilocos Sur I guess because of its orange-y color) and I would say, I love the latter (not in photo); this one (Vigan) is a bit salty for my taste.

juice drinks!!!
more drinks!!!
I thought then that these were alcoholic drinks, only today when I was adding watermark in this photo had I read that it's not...hehe!

sweets and more!!!
Mio Gelati - Italian ice cream shop
I got curious with this ice cream shop, a lot of people are lining up to buy a scoop or two. When my turn came, I found out they offer unusual flavors like beer, barley's and tequila rose. I tried the latter. But don't ask me if it really tasted like tequila, I don't know the taste of real tequila eh; the ice cream is good by the way. :)

Mezza Norte food-trippers!! ;P

How to get to Ayala Technohub:

From EDSA corner Quezon Avenue, take a jeepney or van going to Fairview, Philcoa or UP, ask the driver to drop you off at Ayala Technohub. You'll pass by Quezon City Hall and Quezon Memorial Circle and will turn right at Philcoa Commonwealth Avenue. Ayala Technohub is on your left side, just across the Philcoa Citimall.

Update: Mezza Norte is now in Trinoma Open Parking, Mindanao Avenue corner North Avenue, Quezon City. It is open from Friday to Sunday, 4PM to 3AM.
