Week­end Graz­ing

DestinAsian - - THE GUIDE -

Every Sat­ur­day, Jaime C. Ve­lasquez Park in Makati’s Sal­cedo Vil­lage trans­forms into the Sal­cedo Com­mu­nity

Mar­ket ( sal­cedo­mar­ket.org), a grassroots project that now at­tracts hun­gry shop­pers from far and wide. Apart from all sorts of in­ter­na­tional fare, stalls here of­fer a lip-smack­ing as­sort­ment of re­gional Fil­ipino in­gre­di­ents and snacks: think honey col­lected in Palawan, Bacolod em­panadas from the Visayan is­land of Ne­gros,

long­gan­isa sausages, and kesong

puti— a soft cheese made with wa­ter-buf­falo milk. Sweet­toothed pa­trons can try all sorts of lo­cal desserts such as the sticky rice cakes known as biko, while gourmet takes on lo­cal fare in­clude pili nut tarts and ice cream in­spired by cheesy ma­mon sponge cakes.
