Top Food Parks in Metro Manila That You Must Try
Apart from going on out-of-town trips and having a staycation, food tripping is also one effective way of relieving stress even on a daily basis. Not just because it is more affordable, but also because sometimes you would like to see where your money goes.
Filipinos specifically, are well-known to have strong taste buds and passion for food which is pretty obvious for the numbers of food establishments that are being built in a rapid way.
Food parks, which started during the early 2000s, are designed for a group of small businesses in order for them to be known overtime.
