Here are our top picks for each stall at Eden: EDEN FOOD HALL Address: 32nd & 5th, 32nd St, Taguig, Metro Manila (across St. Luke’s) Open 24 hours from Monday to Saturday Email: edenfoodhall@gmail.com Facebook: Eden Food Hall Instagram: @edenfoodhall https://flic.kr/p/LKZEfR The food hall is decked in stark white walls and wooden furniture, in a sort of ambiguous industrial-meets-whimsical kind of fashion. https://flic.kr/p/2avSmGH They also have a couple of these cute wall art on the pillars. https://flic.kr/p/29qwYGj The Food Hall is open for 24 hours, from Monday to Saturday making it ideal for both daytime and graveyard shift workers.

DRINKS https://flic.kr/p/2avSqA4 In the middle of the food hall is the drinks station which offers soda, coffee, and spirits. https://flic.kr/p/298MnUX They use Dark Matter Theory coffee beans from EDSA Beverage Design Group. THE FOOD The selection at Eden is mostly Asian, with a couple of Western choices thrown in. Listed below are our favorites, not listed in any particular order. Bakmi Nyonya – Indonesian https://flic.kr/p/2arDN9q Bakmi means “noodles” and Nyonya loosely translate to “Wife.” Put together, Bakmi Nyonya translates to “Noodles ni Misis” Menu: Appetizer + Classics / Signature / Grills + Dessert https://flic.kr/p/27L7SHL Bakmi Ayam (₱ 150)Tossed Noodles, Bok choy, Pickles, Chicken & Mushroom, Served with Soup For Indonesian cuisine, I tend to gravitate towards chicken dishes. The noodles are firm and the chicken is well-seasoned. It’s worth noting that Bakmi Nyonya’s noodles are proudly handmade. https://flic.kr/p/29quNFw Sate Ayam (₱ 175) •  Grilled Chicken with Peanut Sauce Can’t go wrong with the classic Chicken Satay. I can’t get enough of their peanut sauce! https://flic.kr/p/Not14m Ayam Goreng (₱ 160)Succulent Fried Chicken Marinated in Turmeric and Other Spices Could be consumed just on its own, but best paired with their rice and sambal. https://flic.kr/p/LL1zLi Es Teller (₱ 160)Indonesian Fruit Cocktail Kind of like an Indonesian halo-halo. Didn’t expect to love coconut meat and avocado together. Great choice for battling the heat. Related Post: BAKMI NYONYA: Authentic Indonesian Bakmi Ayam and Sate Babi in Manila! #UTT2015Winner

Suki Gyouza (Menu) – Japanese https://flic.kr/p/298NY4B https://flic.kr/p/2avQNRF Gyoza (₱ 80 for 6 pcs.)  Sometimes, you just have to focus on one thing and do it well, which is what the folks at Suki are doing. Their gyoza has a good sear on one side and has a good meat to vegetable stuffing ratio. You can also buy a bag of 30 frozen dumplings for just ₱299.

Empress Kitchen – Mixed Asian https://flic.kr/p/2avSH8c Menu: Rice Toppings / Create your own meal / A la Carte https://flic.kr/p/2avQEvH At Empress Kitchen, you make your own combination depending on how hungry you are. Start off with a rice bowl at just ₱ 120, or create a whole platter for ₱ 150. A platter includes one entree, an appetizer, one noodle dish, and rice. We loved the orange chicken as an entree. https://flic.kr/p/298LnMK But our top entree pick for Empress Kitchen is their beef bulgogi. It’s so good, they usually get sold out by lunch and have to make another fresh batch for dinner.

JD’s – Japanese https://flic.kr/p/2arDXQu JD’s serves the most commonly ordered Japanese food at restaurants. But the star of their stall is the Takoyaki. Menu: Takoyaki + Sushi / Meals https://flic.kr/p/2avRzD6 A bit pricey at ₱ 80 for four pieces, but they are packed full of ingredients and are much larger than the ones found in malls.

Chang Thai (Menu) – Thai  https://flic.kr/p/27L9NNC Chef Aof Suwannalert brings Thai fare to the general public at very affordable price points. https://flic.kr/p/298M3gD Thai Bagoong Rice with Pork (₱ 165) Even though the prices are at the lower end for Thai Cuisine, Chang Thai does not scrimp on its serving size. There’s a good balance of flavors in this dish. https://flic.kr/p/298MrfK Papaya Salad (₱ 100) Light, refreshing, and with the right amount of crunch. https://flic.kr/p/LL1DhX Pad Thai (₱ 180) The flavors of the Pad Thai seem to have been altered to cater to the Filipino palate, but nonetheless, it’s unbeatable value for money.

Rafik Shawarma (Menu) – Middle Eastern https://flic.kr/p/2avSNqr Rafik Shawarma serves shawarma as wraps and rice platters, with meat options like beef, chicken, wagyu, and lamb. https://flic.kr/p/2avR1cB Large Chicken Shawarma Rice Plate (₱ 200) Pungent garlic sauce and good spice on the meat. They also serve falafels, but it was a miss for us.

Pepa Wings – American https://flic.kr/p/27La585 Pepa Wings keeps their menu simple by just offering wings in a variety of flavors. Menu: Wings / Breakfast https://flic.kr/p/LKZQSx Six Wings (₱ 149) Decently-sized wings, my favorite flavor is the Garlic Parmesan. The dips, however, tasted too similar to one another.

Chicago’s (Menu) – American https://flic.kr/p/2arDynh Chicago’s serves mostly pasta and pizza, with some entrees like ribs thrown into the menu. https://flic.kr/p/298LZyz Baked Macaroni (₱ 130) Their Baked Macaroni is on the sweeter side of the spectrum, but undoubtedly delicious. https://flic.kr/p/NorMdd Seafood and Veggie Alfred (₱ 130) This was surprisingly good! Fresh shrimp atop a creamy bed of fettuccine.

Gastro Grub – Western https://flic.kr/p/27L9W8Y Gastro Grub is a complex mix of American, Tex-Mex, and European offerings – they have burgers, tacos, and fish and chips. Menu: Burgers / Taco Grub / Meals / Egg Sandwich https://flic.kr/p/29qu4fd Egg Sandwich (₱ 90) •  Buttered Bun, American Cheese, Caramelized Onions, Scrambled Eggs, Chives, and Sriracha Mayo Comically named “The Insignificant Egg Sandwich,” but I beg to differ – its medley is hardly insignificant. I love their use of Sriracha Mayo for that added kick of spice. https://flic.kr/p/NorsvU Lucky Hickory Belly (₱ 130) The pork had a good thickness, but I wish there were a more significant amount of vegetables.

Go! Salads https://flic.kr/p/27L9aZ7 It’s nice to see a stall that focuses on affordable, healthy food given that it’s located right across St. Luke’s. Menu: Snacks / Green Smoothies / Healthy Paninis / Farm Fresh Salads https://flic.kr/p/Nos3Bj Wild Wild West (₱ 180)Shredded Carrots, Buffalo Chicken Bites, Greens, and Herb Ranch Great choice if you’re looking for a quick but healthy snack. You can also have it as a wrap for ₱ 190 if you’re feeling hungrier than usual. https://flic.kr/p/27L72i3 Breakfast Smoothie (₱ 130)Apple, Banana, Cinnamon, Oats, Coco Sugar, Chia Seeds, Greens, and Soy Milk This is a filling smoothie – this alone is enough to substitute one whole meal. I love that they use non-dairy milk also! You can even purchase their metal straw with a cleaner for an additional ₱ 120.

Bulacan Lugaw – Filipino https://flic.kr/p/27L8Y9d Bulacan Lugaw serves Filipino merienda favorites. Menu: Lugaw / Rice Meals / Pulutan / Snacks + Dessert https://flic.kr/p/2avQMkp Lugaw with Egg (₱ 70), Lumpiang Togue (₱ 30) Sometimes, you just need a good bowl of comforting lugaw paired with lumpiang togue especially on dreary days.

DESSERT https://flic.kr/p/298NK3g Dessert Table (Menu) The most exciting stall for me! I love a good dessert. One look at their poster that said “Thai Milk Tea Soft Serve” and I was sold. https://flic.kr/p/298LH7X Thai Milk Tea Soft Serve (₱ 90/Solo) I love that they serve this with actual boba. It rounded out the whole milk tea experience for me. https://flic.kr/p/LL16RR Classic Milk Tea Soft Serve + Waffle (₱ 140) The chocolate waffle was fluffy and not too sweet, a perfect pair for the classic milk tea. FINAL THOUGHTS https://flic.kr/p/29quogj Overall, our experience at Eden Food Hall was definitely memorable. I was in a state of food coma afterward, but in a good way. I will definitely be back for the Bakmi Ayam, the Beef Bulgogi, the smoothies,  and the Milk Tea Soft Serve. Budget at ₱ 250/head.
