It's Everyone's Fiesta!: Eatsploring the Valenzuela Food Fiesta and Christmas Bazaar 2017 (GIVEAWAY ALERT!)
Filipinos love to eat and Valenzuelanos are no exception. One Valenzuela observed a very steady food movement in the city and this trend culminates on the month of December with the annual Valenzuela Food Fiesta and Christmas Bazaar which is organized by the City Goverment of Valenzuela.
Picking up from the very successful event last year, the Valenzuela Food Fiesta and Christmas Bazaar 2017 came in with a huge buzz which left Valenzuelanos and city visitors hungry after shopping or after going to the Valenzuela City People's Park but very full right after going to the food fiesta. C.J. Santos Street (Old City Hall), the location of the food festival, is very easy to spot since it is just across the park and City Hall Complex. Thus, it is also very accessible via McArthur Highway or Maysan Road.

|Laugh at jokes and sing along with comedians on the stage. Look at that big crowd!|
|Hungry for hungarian? These sausages are literally hogging the limelight at Php50.00 a stick.|
|Gotta slice 'em all! There are three flavors to choose from: Ham & Cheese (Php70), Hawaian (Php89), and Special (Php99).|
|Chef Yu's Fried Siopao (Php22 a piece). Chef Yu is only open until 8pm in the evening so try to be early at the food fiesta if you want to get some of these soft and fluffy buns.|
|Ethan's Cafe is also at the food fiesta! Look at these gorgeous boneless bangus ensalada (Php150/piece)|
One of the things that One Valenzuela likes about the food fiesta is that it brings together many of the local burger joints, bakeshops, food stalls, and restaurants which are located in the various barangays in Valenzuela City. Some of these are the following: Big Bad Burger (Malinta), Chef Yu (Malinta), Ethan's Cafe (Marulas), Hakobe Takoyaki & Food Hub (Arca Yard - Karuhatan), Lucky Garage Grilled Burger (Pariancillo Villa), and RM Grill Hauz Burger (Pariancillo Villa). Thus, you no longer need to travel from one barangay to another just to have a taste of Valenzuela.
|A line of takoyaki babies! (4 pieces for Php50). Want okonomiyaki? Get it from Hakobe at Php120.|
|Snapped at a Lucky Garage Grilled Burger order before it was delivered to its rightful owner! Burger price range is Php65 to PHp300+ depending on the size.|
|Wagyu Steak Rice? Malcolm's Burger truck is also in the house!|
There are also a number of stalls and food trucks which are from neighboring cities in Metro Manila. This makes the food fiesta a diverse place to find something to eat! The food fiesta boasts of a variety of cuisines like Filipino, American, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese. You would spot a number of fusion food too.
|If you are up to a challenge, One Valenzuela found this tapang kabayo (Php90) at one of the stalls.|
|Some shawarma action on a beautiful night! Rice and pita varieties are offered.|
|A taste of Bacolod in Valenzuela City? Other than the popular chicken inasal, you will also find several other meat for grilling in this stall. And of course, where there is smoke, there's good food!|
|Boodlefight Fiesta by Syiesha has three sets of boodlefight meals which you can choose from. Set A (Seafood with Pork Bundle), Set B (Seafood Bundle), and Set C (Chicken and Pork Bundle). Syiesha is a local boodlefight restaurant in Valenzuela City.|
|Little Joy has a beautiful rack of blueberry cheesecake slices (Php90/slice).|
|J.Co, anyone? Php250 per half dozen box and Php45 a piece. Half wishing that there is already a J.Co outlet in the city!|
Feasts like this make One Valenzuela appreciate the fact that the local government extends its arms to make the city a liveable city. Its residents are provided with not only the basics in life but also the opportunities to spend quality time with their family and friends through good food and wonderful places to visit in the city. Hindi mo na kailangang umalis pa ng Valenzuela (You no longer need to go outside Valenzuela.).
Here's a bright suggestion. Why not share the Valenzuela City experience with the people you know who come from other places? Bring them at the Valenzuela Food Fiesta and Christmas Bazaar. After all, it's everyone's fiesta!
