July 26, 2012 - Mezza Norte, the most awaited food hub from the South (Taguig) comes closer to Quezon City, with the launch of Mercato Centrale's sister hang-out night food market located in the bustling compound of Technohub in Commonwealth. 

Foodie adventurers who travel all the way from the North to Mercato Centrale in Taguig in search of new culinary adventures, the Mercato experience is now coming closer to you.

Just recently, the organizers of the popular Mercato Centrale food market in Bonifacio Global City set up the Mezza Norte night food market at the UP-AyalaLand Technohub along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City to serve the growing late night food community in the North.

Mezza Norte brings together unique food, drink, pastry and dessert finds from home-based businesses in Quezon City like Dadi’s Berd charcoal-grilled chicken, Frisch’s Liquor Ice Cream, Macheesmo burgers, Sober club’s mocktails, Maria’s Ilocos Empanada, Med Chef’s pastries, Amang’s Grill’s chicken and pork isaw - the market will also have the favorite food finds from Mercato Centrale, which include Manangs’s Chicken, Mochiko ice cream-filled mochi balls, Big Bob’s Freshy charcoal-grilled burgers, Merry Moo Artisan Ice Cream, Angus Beef Tapa, Mio Gelati, Bagwang’s thinly-sliced bagnet strips, Carlo’s Kitchen crunchy belly, Chef Resty’s roast beef and more.

We are very excited to be part of Quezon City food scene!” shares Anton Diaz, co-organizer of Mezza Norte and also the popular food and travel blogger behind “Mercato has wanted to serve the North, but we were just waiting for the right location for the food market. We think that the UP-AyalaLand Technohub is a perfect location in the North where we can cater to everyone in Quezon City and the surrounding areas.”

"There are a lot of great up-and-coming food entrepreneurs over here, and we want to give them an opportunity to shine in the market.” Adds RJ Ledesma, the other co-organizer of Mezza Norte. “Among the entrepreneurs we look forward to having in the market are the students from the nearby colleges and universities along with Quezon City-based cooks, chefs and bakers who want to share their recipes with fellow food enthusiasts.”

On top of making new food discoveries, the marketgoers can also enjoy free wi-fi from Globe Tattoo at Home and live acoustic performances.

Mezza Norte will not only limit Quezon City's food choices, in fact it could be a great alternative from fastfoods, food delieveries, and high end food establishments. No  worries for those who crave during late nights, given that the night food market is open until 3:00 a.m., there's a wide array of meals and culinary treats.

During the premier opening, invited media were supposed to have a taste samples from the food concessionaires, I doubt if these people can manage to do that, the place was totally crowded and booths are selling like hot cakes! The rains didn't even stopped Mezza Norte activities - it was jam-packed with food explorers from fresh faces to loyal customers. :)
