Where Basketball Meets Fun in Dining at Buendia Food by the Court

Food parks, the trending foodie destinations that are continuously putting more fun into dining.

Honestly, I've been to only one (except if you categorize Mercato Centrale as on), hence, I may not be the expert in this area, but if I need to go to one, I have a benchmark.  It has to be on the same leverage (or better) with Buendia Food by the Court.

BFbtC isn't only unique in its theme, as it converges basketball with food, since the food park is just beside a covert court along Sen. Gil Puyat Ave., formerly known as Buendia.

Would you believe that in less than a year, Buendia Food by the Court has already established itself as a favorite foodie destination and hangout in Makati City?

During its launch, early this year by SUDECO, which I had been blessed to be a witness of, started off with 13 merchants. Today, BFBTC has a total of 27 merchants serving a variety of unique, mouthwatering food concepts.

These are the new boys on the block:

Here are just some points why I look at BFBTC before checking out some other food parks.

1. It has to have a wide variety of curated food options, has something to for everyone.

You can’t go wrong with local favorites from Filipino hawker stalls: Goto Pinoy serves the famous all-meat goto and champorado with bacon, J&V Lechon Belly is known for their lechon dinakdakan and Cebu lechon belly roll, Joe’s has sumptuous local longganisa specialties like the crunchy pancit topped with longganisa, sizzling balut and other sizzling must-tries from Doss Pares, award-winning premium beef tapa at Tapaddiction, and Sisig MNL’s selection of sisig (try the croc meat sisig!).

2.  If it has "pang-masa" food, there also had to be stalls catering to the gourmand or impeccable foodies

If you’re feeling more indulgent, go for Barrel Smoker’s smoked ribs and belly, try gourmet burgers and chicken wings at Burgers Meet Wings, binge on all kinds of shrimp and prawn specialties from Shrimper’s List, sample steaks and pastas at Rouche Grille, enjoy rich Spanish staples like paella and callos from Pappi Boy’s Spanish Cocina, munch on large DIY sandwiches from MAD Subs, eat all kinds of fries at Keso Kumpadre, and satisfy your sweet tooth with waffles and ice-blended drinks at XOXO Waffles and Frosts.

3.  When you are craving for authentic Asian dishes  that doesn't need to be Pinoy or some forms of or foreign food.

There is a good mix of international cuisine: Bakmi Nyonya serves authentic Indonesian food, while Isha’s Little Thai Kitchen cooks up a memorable pad thai and khao pad krung, Jack’s Joint offers Turkish fare like shawarma and kebabs, Lamexa Cantina provides a wide selection of Mexican dishes (try their Lamexaritas --- margarita ala Lamexa!), Little Kodo offers Japanese street food, Shangkee Buns serves up Chinese buns, RJ’s Korean Bowl-Gogi has yummy Korean specialties, Fritoohhh! dishes out Hong Kong street food, and Sausage Party has juicy German sausages.

4. There has to   healthy options to choose from: Rojak Salad serves a special, one-of-a-kind salad, Brothers’ Blends, a farm-to-table all-organic stall serves aero-pressed coffee, cold-pressed juices, and healthy desserts. You can also try the goat meat specialties at Korvits Grill, a leaner alternative to the more traditional beef and pork.

5. It has to be right on the budget!  A good P 200 can get you a good and wholesome meal with drinks.

Also, if craving something cool after an intense game of basketball just head to Ice Cold for chilled drinks and ice-cold beer.

6. Every spot should be "Instagrammable."

Come by for after-office beers and bites with the colleagues (wait out the rush hour traffic while you’re at it), a friendly game of basketball, or both. BFBTC is a great spot to catch up with friends over delicious food. It’s also an ideal place to hold basketball league games and sports fests.

Buendia Food by the Court seamlessly blends our culture’s two great loves, food and basketball, along with our enthusiasm for having a good time with friends.

Just 10 minutes away from the Makati Central Business District, Buendia Food by the Court is located at 24 Sen. G. Puyat Avenue corner Bautista Street, Brgy. San Isidro, Makati City. It is open from 5 p.m. to 12 a.m. Limited parking is available.
