Celebrate all things good at Backyard Grill at the Park


It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. In Manila, this practically means, traffic is starting to build up heavier than usual, Christmas songs are on loop in shopping malls, and weekend bazaars are popping up left and right.

Next Saturday, November 18, give yourself a break from the hustle and spend quality time with family and peers at Park 3 Grounds Bel-Air Village, Makati for another round of Southern Living’s Backyard Grill at the Park.

What’s good?
For Backyard Grill’s last leg, Southern Living magazine partners with the Department of Agriculture to give their trusted affiliates a venue to sell homegrown products. Unwind with a cup of coffee from Cocotos Mount Apo Coffee or local spirits from Distileria Limtuaco. The Perfect Mushroom will be serving mushroom burgers and yes, mushroom chicharon.

Also find organic edible flowers and greens from Down to Earth, sustainably sourced honey from Queen Bee, fresh carabao’s milk and cheese from Philippine Carabao Center, and even your favorite delicacies from Aging’s Kakanin.

Pre-holiday feast
Backyard Grill wouldn’t be complete without a grand feast. This time, Alamat will be bringing in the best craft beers from different regions, A Table will be serving home-cooked, comfort meals, and Tatang’s will be selling their crispy boneless pork bellies.

Other food stalls to expect are as follows: Tusk Social, Bayani Brew, The Good Seed by Edgy Veggy, Sigs Smokehouse, Ahi Hawaii, Stanford Shaw, The Cashew Milk, Susmaryosep, and Aburi Alabang.

The afternoon wouldn’t be complete without relaxing music from Joaqui Madamba, Coeli San Luis, and Between Archery and Olympic.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Department of Agriculture: Good Food Community.

This event is presented to you by Southern Living magazine and powered by Hinge Inquirer Publications in cooperation with Globe Telecom, Krispy Kreme Philippines, and Megaworld Global Estate Inc.
