The Yard at Xavierville: Wakamojo

Filipinos love to eat, that’s why the food industry here is steadily growing for years. Malls and town centers are rising up from the ground like mushrooms filled with both old and new restaurants. Also, I have noticed that after the success of Maginhawa, Lilac and Kapitolyo, a lot of food parks are springing around the metro. This is great because you can just go to one place, eat and try different kinds of food and cuisines to your heart’s content. Something new and a far cry from going to a single restaurant. Yeah, talk about food tripping! 

Just like this newly opened gastropark in QC: The Yard at Xavierville. The yard is a 3-floor food park built from steel shipping containers. The first and second levels contain the 30 vendors offering almost every type of food and cuisine you can think of – from appetizers, to mains, to drinks and desserts. At the third level is just an al-fresco dining area where customers can stay when the seats at the first and second floors are full. 

The place is quite small and narrow but the spaces are well maximized. Parking can be a bit tedious because The Yard has limited parking slots at the entrance. Since it’s the rainy season, I suggest that you take a table that can give you cover, just in case it rains. 

I love the overall industrial feel of this food park. I find this place very hip, yet doesn’t cater only to a certain group of people. I was there one Saturday night and I saw a lot of groups of friends and families alike. There’s also live musical performances by DJ and bands on weekends by the way. 

I was able to try quite a few from the 30 food stalls inside The Yard:  Halal Kabab Express, Black Plate, Little Wondang, Milkshake Lab, Wakamojo, Tokyo Tempura, The Gulp.  Here’s a map of the food park (click to enlarge photos): 

Wakamojo is a food stall offering sausages, by themselves, on a bun, or with sides. It is located on the second floor of the The Yard food park.  They have sausages from different countries.

Besides having your sausage on a bun, Wakamojo also serves sausages with rice for those with big appetites or for the rice lovers. We had the Wakamojo Dog, it is includes Hungarian with chili con carne, bacon bits, nacho cheese and grilled onions.

The size of the sandwich was ok and it came with Pik-Nik shoestring potato fries, yes, the snack. I like that the toppings were generous and added so much flavor to the already tasty Hungarian sausage. I am not a big fan of sausage sandwiches but this one I like.
