Food parks are extremely trendy nowadays—that's a fact. However, whether or not they're worth going to—be it the food, ambiance, people, or combination of any of these—is debatable. As I've said, they aren't created equally.
However, the newly-opened The Yard Streetfood Cinema in Timog Avenue, Quezon City is one of those food parks that is definitely worth going to. Apart from its astounding and dizzying selection of delectable dishes and bevy of boozy beverages, it boasts as having its own theater within the confines of the park.
Yes, you read that right—upon entering the park, you are greeted firstly by the neon lights, and secondly by the gigantic projection screen in the middle of the park. The sound isn't half bad either: it's loud enough to be audible, but isn't muddled or "cracked."
The stalls and seats are also built around the screen, so wherever you're seated, you can still clearly watch whatever is showing onscreen. Make sure to check out the photos I took during my visit there last year!
Pricing is competitive, with prices ranging from PHP 120 to PHP 200 for individual meals, such as the House of Griddle Herbed Pork at 149, Chicken Joe’s Spam Chicken Fries at 145, and the Thai Foon Yam Pla Duk Fu Crispy Catfish at 185.
Bigger servings for groups are priced higher—of course—such as the gigantic Naughty Nachos of Mad Max at 220 and the whopping Galactic Frost Darth Velvet Milkshake at 250. Prices may have changed slightly since my last visit, so it’s better if you check out the place yourself!
