|Brad's Family and Friends Diner|
I think food parks are magnet to people because come on, who doesn't like eating right? It is basically a food court which we see usually in malls that has a wide selections of food to eat in a certain place with specific themes and a number of entertainment. I visited a number of food parks near our place recently and one differs from each other mainly on their combination of cuisines to choose from and their selected theme or ambiance. But Brad's Family and Friends Diner (our featured food park) or locally called "BFF Diner" is different.
|Mayor Marcy was there!|
BFF Diner has 11 food stalls named Pinoy Mix, Tatang's, Meat and Bread, Briquette, Naruto Sushi, Let's drink to that, iMunchies. Jeriah, Siomaity and Felipe's. Well the other one got a "Serving soon" sign to complete the 11. So let's tackle each one briefly:
|Felipe's chicken fillets|
Felipe's - Felipe's chicken fillet obviously serves chicken fillet with different dips, crispy pata and chicken skin. The "putok-batok" stall. Syempre doon po tayo sa lean meat (Healthy kuno). Magkaka pak pak na po ako sa dami atang chicken fillet na kinakaen ko kasama na yung sa bahay namin haha! But kidding aside, Crispy pata will be crispy pata. Pero ibang klase po yung chicken fillet dito Lalo na yung pag pinili niyong dip eh mushroom gravy sauce, mapapaulit-ulit ka.
Siomaity - They serve their best seller Takoyaki, of course Siomai & Siopao plus they have Chao fan rice too which is my favorite! Haha. They currently sell a chicken dish na palaging na uubos. I might try that next time. (Asian-Fusion)
|Jeriah Dessert's platter meal|
Jeriah - Jeriah desserts offers soft-serve ice cream with various toppings, fruit mix and different pastries and cakes. They actually have a platter meal which is a combination of all if you want to taste a little bit of everything. Vanilla ice cream forever with chocolate chips and syrup, the best! Maganda yung consistency nung soft-serve ice cream nila, hindi tinipid.
|iMunchies' submarine sandwich|
iMunchies - The Mexican and Italian stall of the diner. They serve crispy Nachos, Tacos, Cheesy fries and their huge submarine which is jumbo sandwich with a lot of meat and veggies inside. They serve pastas' too which is perfect for children and those who craves for it. Sarap nung cheesy fries nila kasi madaming bacon ang nilalagay at pwede ka rin mag pa extra cheese. At try niyo din yung Nachos para healthy dahil sa tomato. Hehe.
|Let's drink to that Sumo drinks|
Let's Drink to that - The drinks stall that has freshly squeezed fruit drinks, milk tea, gulaman, dino milo, tea, hot chocolate and a lot more. They promote all natural drinks which is a big hit to the diner's guests. Mag isa ko po nauubos yung isang sumo drink nila kasi hindi nakakaconsensya uminom ng all-natural drink. Pabili nga ulit nung iced tea with calamansi!
|Naruto Sushi California Maki|
Naruto Sushi - The ultimate Japanese food provider that will cater all your Japanese food cravings from Sushi, Tempura, Katsudon, Ramen, Teriyakis even up to Gyozas. Name it, they have it. If they don't have it, come back. Now they have it. One of the popular stores inside dahil affordable ang prices ng meals nila at masarap din yung natikman kong fried chicken fillet nila. Oo, chicken fillet din pero ibang luto. Lol.
|Briquette's chicken wings|
Briquette - If you are craving for those premium delicious ribs, tasty chicken wings or that mouth-watering pork belly, don't miss them. You are missing a big part of life. Eto ata yung pinaka pricey na stall dito pero mga gyud, nakakaaddict yung chicken wings mga repa. Rapsa! Try ko next time yung iba sa sueldo haha. (American)
|Meat and Bread burgers|
Meat & Bread - This is where you find meaty and chunky patties in your burger and generous serving of Frappuccinos. My secret order here which will not be a secret anymore is the Kamote fries. I terribly like it! Ugh. Nag order ako ng frap dito at masarap din kasi malaki yung container so sulit yung P80. (American)
|Tatang's Grill Barbeques|
Tatang's - The all-time favorite Barbeque resides here. It is accompanied by Hotdog, Squid, Fish and many more grilled and smoked products. Their flagship is the barbeque which becomes the favorite of almost everyone who buys them. Solid! Thumbs-up yung sauce. (Filipino)
|Pinoy Mix Street food|
Pinoy Mix - Patronize your own! They have fishballs, chickenballs.. They even have kwek kwek and one-day old chick. Some says that their sauces are the ones to taste for. Hindi rin nila pinatawad ang mga Silogs.. Tapsilog, Longsilog, Tocilog at kung ano pang mga Silog. Haha! Marami na daw silang suki. (Filipino)
Based from what I have heard, the 11th store will cater the typical Filipino dishes like Adobo, Bicol express, Sinigang, Papaitan, etc.. Well, let us just wait for it then but will try it definitely. Bicol express is to die for! Mabuhay ang mga spicy food with gata! Awu! Haha.
|BFF Diner facade|
As per my own experience, meal averages from P80 for meals with rice, though there are low as P25 for street food products and high as P500 for family packages. The staffs were accommodating and they even have a television for entertainment. A plus for each of the hand sanitizer per table and loving the homie vibe of the place. The area is open which makes it very relaxing and perfect for leisure eating out with friends and family. And a little secret? You can request board games at their admin office while waiting for your orders to get served.
The diner is very accessible since they are located along the national road of J.P. Rizal. I found this map published on their Facebook fan page and it is really helpful to find the place. If you look closely though at each of the stall's menu, you will find stickers of "Best seller" & "Must Try" signs which can help first timers choose what to order. The food park is very friendly which I am sure you'll enjoy when you visit. Now you know, now you go. =)
