People are naturally drawn to food and so to keep up with the demand, a lot of food parks and festivals have surfaced across the metro. A lot of them though happens to be found up north, but I thank the heavens that finally we’ve added another food sanctuary down south in the heart of BF Homes, that is the Aguirre Food Park! Located along Aguirre Street which is ever so famous for its food finds.
Having been captivated by this delightful setting, my excitement sparked me to begin my Food Adventure. I’ve set a goal to at least try two to three food items from different vendors during my first visit. I’ve had Siga (Sisig sa Gata) from Bagwings, Oreo Brookie (brownie cookie) and Iced Café Latte from Sugartrails and The Vegetarian Pizza from The Bread Lounge everything was just so sinfully tasteful, finely crafted and freshly prepared.
I’ve yet to try out the rest of the food in The Aguirre Food Park, but one thing is for sure, I will definitely come back to indulge myself to Bagwings.
Crispy Bagnet, Buffalo Wings and Sisig. These are classic Filipino favorites that will never go out of style, but Bagwings do it better. Who knew it was possible to make these dishes even more scrumptious than they already are? Apparently someone did, hence, Bagwings.
Let me enlighten you on what makes Bagwings exceptional: first off is the famous Bagwings, a plateful of slices of crispy and juicy chilli bagnet paired up with a serving of equally crispy and juicy buffalo wings that comes with your choice of dip and with rice of course! The pork slices are deep fried into perfection while still preserving the tenderness of the meat, whereas the chicken wings are as crispy and succulent as they can be. Man, if this won’t get you locked down on Bagwings, I don’t know what will, oh wait, then comes their Siga (Sisig sa Gata), here’s how they describe it: Boiled then deep fried pork mixed with onions and coconut milk plus their special secret Si-Ga Sauce topped with fried garlic and served with their homemade chilli oil and a heaping cup of freshly steamed rice. The Siga was divine; the dish was altogether crunchy, creamy, tangy and mouth-watering. An ice-cold cup of freshly brewed iced tea was a perfect match to balance out the sweet and savory blend of flavors of the meal. They aren’t stingy on the servings as well, you’re sure to get your money’s worth with every order. It’s just downright delicious, filling and super sulit!
The Aguirre Food Park started off with a great response from the community; they’re already packed with guests in less than a week in operation. Great love and support have been shown to the food establishments and the park. Overall, I could tell that people not just from the south would enjoy going to this humble local food park. So take a breather, hold on to those cravings and take part on this wonderful food experience that will make you stop and say, “Life is good”.
