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.

Valenzuela Food Fiesta and Christmas Bazaar 2017. This huge sign will greet you at C.J. Santos Street.
Everyone is welcome to eatsplore the food fiesta from 5:00 in the afternoon up to 1:00 in the morning every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this December. The street turns into a foodie's paradise once the clock turns 5! As of this writing, you can still catch up on the following dates: December 21, 22, 23, 28, 29, 30. There are new food stalls and trucks on each weekend so there's always something new to discover.
Laugh at jokes and sing along with comedians on the stage. Look at that big crowd! 
What to expect at the food fiesta? A variety of food which will make you go loco on what to try! One Valenzuela suggests that you bring your barangay with you because it is more fun to eat and share plates of food with family and friends. Now, let One Valenzuela guide you amongst some of the food stalls at this year's food fiesta through a picture walk below. WARNING: The following graphic content will make you hungry. Really hungry.

Sweet Surprise!

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).
This plate of burger and fries goes for Php100 from RM Grill Hauz Burger. There are other varieties. Choose between Autobots and Decepticons burgers (Php100 to 170). They also have a humongous burger named Nemesis Prime which can feed  4 to 6 persons (much like a big family! or the crew!) and is priced at Php555.
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.

Love Ice Cream's (LIC) fried ice cream is a labor of love. Watch as they work on your ice cream (Php60/cup). Flavors? LIC has: oreo and mallows, strawberry and graham, blueberry and graham, mango and graham, banana and chocolate, rainbow and mallows, popcorn and caramel (interesting!), cookies and chocolate, coffee and chocolate, and matcha and caramel. LIC also has crepes: mango nutella, banana nutella, blueberry caramel, and peanut butter caramel.
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. 
Big Bad Burgers offers these gourmet burgers which you will want to sink your teeth into. Do you know that they also have a spot at the Malinta Jeepney Terminal along C.J. Santos which is open every weekend? One Valenzuela loves their epically-grilled burgers and she knows that you will love 'em too. Big Bad Burgers also churns out unique dishes from their kitchen which will make you think that the chef-owner is a wizard with a passion for cooking!
Other than the savory meals and snacks, there are also sweet pastries and desserts which one can also try out. There were yema cakes, red velvet cake, sinful chocolate cake, brazo de mercedes, crinkles, and blueberry cheesecakes slices from different stalls. J.Co donuts were also sold at the food fiesta which are good for pasalubong.  
After eating a good meal, you might want to bite on something sweet. Here is a snapshot of EJ Cakes' table of sweets and pastry goodies.
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! 
Did you get hungry? One Valenzuela bet you did.

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!

  1. Hi One Valenzuela! Before anything else, I want to thank you for showing the beauty of Valenzuela in every aspect. I am also a proud Valenzuelano.

    The best thing that happened to me this year? That was when I graduated in college. Being an accounting student was difficult and me being able to accomplished the 4 years of hardship is something to be proud of. My parents were able to see PICC and I felt that they're very happy and very proud of me.

  2. Early christmas clothes for my kids na gagamitin nila this coming christmas bought last october. Gipit kami thi month hehe. Kaya di kaya makabili ng new clotges for my kids. 😍🎄🎁👗

  3. Hindi po talaga ako taga Valenzuela ipinanganak or lumaki since I came from a province BOHOL. But I'm staying here in Valenzuela for almost 9 years kasi dito po ako nakahanap ng work. Hindi man siya ganun kalakihan ang sahod but super thankful ako kasi naging regular ako sa kompanyang pinapasukan ko at yun ang importante. Kasi sa panahon ngayon, mahirap na talaga yun contractual ka lang lalo na kung may mga anak ka na. Kaya malaki po ang pasasalamat ko sa ating Panginoon at sa mga boss ko na pinagkatiwalaan nila ako.
    Sa tagal ko nag stay dito sa Valenzuela, subra akong natuwa at ang galing ng mga government officials natin dito. Ang laki talaga ng pagbabago. Ang dami ng schools na napapatayo, may mga 3S centers na every barangay and many more. Grabe! Talaga ang improvement ng ating City. Kaya masasabi ko na proud na proud ako na dito ako sa Valenzuela City nag stay.
    Let's go on the question. Haha ang layo ko na kasi. Heheh What is THE BEST that happened to you this 2017? Sa totoo lang, wala ako maisip, heheh kasi I'll just go on the flow lang. Yun tipong lahat na nangyari sa buhay ko kino-consider ko siya the best. Kasi hindi mo na yun ma experience anymore. Having a great company to work, meeting new people and friends to talk to, having a new member of the family since ng bunso kong kapatid ay nag asawa na at nagkaroon na ng anak, and having the best City to live na alam mo sa sarili mo tatagal ka kasi super peaceful and organize.
    Thanks for this great opportunity ONE VALENZUELA blog!
    Merry Christmas and God bless!!
