I received another email from the Marketing Team of the Mercato Centrale Group, informing me about the group’s newest baby: Porto Cena in Subic, Olongapo City. I’ve been to the Subic area numerous times and it’s always been one of those places to go to when you want a quick trip out of Manila. Starting October this year, those of you living near that area or those who find themselves there during the weekends will have something else to check out:
The Mercato Centrale group, organizers of the popular night food markets Midnight Mercato in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, Cucina Andare in Glorietta Park, Makati, Mezza Norte in Trinoma Mall, Quezon City and Cocina Centrale in MarQuee Mall, Angeles, opens the NEWEST Mercato Centrale market in the North: PORTO CENA in Ayala’s Harbor Point Mall, Subic every Friday and Saturday starting October 5 (Saturday) from 4pm to 3am.
“We are excited about bringing the Mercato Centrale experience to the Subic Bay Freeport Zone”, shared Anton Diaz, co-organizer of PORTO CENA and the blogger behind the popular food and travel website www.OurAwesomePlanet.com. “The variety of great-tasting and affordable food choices, the acoustic music and the lively atmosphere will definitely complement the fun and adventurous vibe that Subic has become well-known for!”
“PORTO CENA will be a night food and lifestyle market where the home-grown food entrepreneurs of Subic Bay, Olongapo and the rest of Zambales can showcase their local cuisine.” said RJ Ledesma, co-organizer of PORTO CENA. “We are also excited to have the expatriate community of Subic – who come from all parts of the globe – to offer their specialty dishes in the market.”
“Of course, we are also bringing over the best-selling food vendors and food trucks from our Mercato markets in Manila to be part of PORTO CENA.” Added Anton Diaz.
PORTO CENA is located at Ayala’s Harbor Point Mall in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Olongapo City.
