Banchetto in Ortigas Center

BANCHETTO is an Italian word meaning “a feast”.

Mostly every December, different places all over Manila hold this midnight feast event. At exactly 12 midnight, different food vendors line up their food stalls, and voila, you’ll see people coming from different buildings, condominiums and villages nearby enjoying the cheap yet very delicious food.

One Banchetto is set up in Ortigas Center where I work, and we went there one Friday ago. The picture above was taken by me, while my co-workers are enjoying their food. The place was crowded and I was only able to get myself a green banana shake and seafood rice, since I could not handle being in the middle of the crowd. Anyhow, the night was fun and filled with… well, full stomaches. Hahaha
