Archive for the ‘Banchetto’ Category

On June 2011, Banchetto moved from its previous location (along Emerald Ave) to its present location between Renaissance and DepEd (along Meralco Ave). We have not return since our first visit last December 2010, and an opportunity to visit the new place came in last November 11 (11.11.11). Banchetto – Megatent also will held a wishing lantern activity around 11pm (11.11.11 11pm). We arrived around 8pm in anticipation (and if possible, purchase a wishing lantern for ourselves).

Unfortunately, the organizers made a last minute cancellation (around 9pm) of the wishing lantern event. It was for the safety of the people attending the event and the people living around the vicinity.

It did not discourage us from enjoying the feast! We decided to leave early as people kept arriving.

We arrived early around 11pm and waited in a nearby convenience store. The shop owners  were busy setting up by the sidewalk. People are also gathering around the Ortigas area waiting for the feast.

@ 12am, the shop owners were ready to sell

an array of delicacy (i.e. giant burgers, kebabs, cakes, lasagna, sausages, crepes, shawarma et. al.)

The cakes are tempting…

The chicken and ham looks delicious…

The maki is yummy…

The burger is so huge! we had to share in order to finish the whole thing!

BANCHETTO is an italian word meaning “a feast.”
The concept of BANCHETTO_ortigas center is geared towards attracting the Call Center people and employees in Ortigas area as the main clientelle, thereby attracting the residents of Condominiums around Ortigas Center, and eventually attracting the residents of nearby villages and subdivisions that surrounds the Ortigas Center area.
