Señor Park at Malingap Food Central

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 without going from one place to another. Food parks/halls are great if you’re in for a good food tripping!

I haven’t been to food parks lately, mostly I go to stand alone restaurants, but for a change I went to Malingap Food Hall with my friends last weekend. Malingap is one of the streets inside Teacher’s Village in Quezon City and in the same neighborhood with the famous foodie destination: Maginhawa Street.

Malingap Food Hall is different from food parks since it’s indoors and airconditioned. The place is colorful, and you can find nice selections of food stalls inside without getting too overwhelmed. The concept was brought about by the same people behind Pino Restaurant (which you can find just across the street) and each food brand is carefully chosen by the them.

There are parking spaces in front of the food hall too which is great since around this area, looking for parking can be quite tedious. I believe Malingap Food Hall opened back in 2017 and many brands have come and go from there. While I was researching about Malingap Food Hall, I’ve seen some brands that are now in malls or already have their own full-blown restaurants. As of the moment there 7 stores inside Malingap Food Hall and we tried items from 3 stores: Harvest by Kabs, Veggie Guys and B Wings x Señor Park.

Another stall that we tried is the one that houses both B. Wings and Señor Park. I’m not sure if they have the same owner that’s why they are sharing a stall or what. All I know is that I like chicken wings and Mexican food a lot! There was a time in my life that I would eat chicken wings almost every day for a month, that’s how I got so addicted to them. As for Mexican food, I have a soft spot for it because of how flavorful this cuisine is.

B Wing offers classic and innovative chicken wings flavors. They have named their flavors after Philippine politicians and other famous persons, and I find that clever and funny. As for Señor Park it’s a fusion of Mexican and Korean dishes, both cuisines that I totally dig! Señor is a term for “Sir” in Spanish while Park is a very common last name in Korea. Although I noticed that Señor Park has more items on their menu than B.Wings. Anyway below are the items that we got to try:

Kim Padre Burrito – Senor Park's Gangam ultimate burrito with Mexican-Kimchi rice, Angus beef, kimchi aioli, pickled radish, corn, Whitaker mushroom, salsa, shredded veggies and nori.

Pulled Pork Quesadillas – Senor Park's folded tortilla filled with pulled pork and three types of cheese and then topped with cheese (again)

Anneong Amigo – Senor Park's Gangam ultimate burrito with Mexican-Kimchi rice, pulled pork, kimchi aioli, pickled radish, corn, shiitake mushroom, salsa, shredded veggies and nori.

Morimoto Wings – B Wing’s 1/2 pounder chicken wings likely named after Masaharu Morimoto, a Japanese chef, best known as an Iron Chef on the Japanese TV cooking show Iron Chef and its spinoff Iron Chef America. These wings are Japanese takoyaki inspired, the combination of savory and tangy spices highlights the umami flavor accented with a drizzle of Japanese mayo and a dash of nori powder

Spicy dHOTerte Wings – B Wing’s 1/2 pounder wings named after current Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte. This is the spicy version of P-Noy and was created in Davao for the Araw ng Davao food fair when the namesake was still the city’s mayor. Tangy, savory, spicy and crunchy – that’s what this blend is all about.

Black Mamba Wings – B Wing’s 1/2 pounder wings that are most likely named after NBA super star Kobe Bryant’s monicker “Black Mamba”. The award-winning flavor is B Wing’s very first best seller when they opened back in 2012. Mexican mole inspired spicy wings has that cocoa touch that will make you crave for more.

Garlic Cheddar Wings - B Wing’s 1/2 pounder wings and is often mistaken as garlic parmesan but this unique blend of garlic and marinated cheddar is a proud original and top seller. Let’s face it, Filipinos grew up eating cheddar and not parmesan.

I enjoyed everything that was served to us from B Wings and Señor Park. Though I have my personal favorites of course: the garlic cheddar chicken wings from B Wings and the pulled pork quesadilla from Señor Park. If you also want to try B Wings' and Señor Park's dishes but can’t visit Malingap Food Hall? Well, you can order via GrabFood, Lalamove or FoodPanda and have them delivered right to your doorstep.
