Aguirre Food Park – A Foodie’s Paradise!

If you ask anyone in BF Homes Paranaque where Aguirre Street is, almost always will you be asked with this follow up question: “Which restaurant are you headed to?” Frequented by food hunters and food lovers, this place is synonymous to good food. In a cozy nook along this gastronomic strip is a vacant lot transformed into a wonderful food haven – The Aguirre Food Park.

Headed by the young energetic entrepreneur Ms. Maricar Ricardos, this food truck galore currently has more than ten active members offering different culinary masterpieces from comfort food to themed dishes from around the world.

The food park currently has more than twenty tables and can be fully loaded by 7pm.  Eight to eleven food stalls participate everyday, but the mainstays are Sugartrails, Big Bite, Truck Bun by Chef Broosy, and Soulfood.

Coffee? Sugartrails got you covered! I am not much into coffee so I asked Maricar to impress me, and without thinking twice she had me try her Americano coffee – I can’t stop savoring the hot aromatic cup after my first taste. It has a pleasant citrusy zest and the special grade coffee used is shouting its goodness with every sip. I instantly became a fan.

The lineup of Sugartrails’ cupcakes is a marvel of great yummy treats – Maricar who also owns Sugartrails explained that her masterpieces were a work of love and is focused on quality. What I find most interesting about these delicious marvels is that they are all subtly sweet and creamy, focused on the flavor of the cupcake. The Pistachio Cupcake is a must try – truly heavenly!

The Oreo Brookies is sold for only Php45 – which is an awesome bargain considering that this heavenly piece of pastry is packed with all the oreo and chocolate goodness. It was so good my team and I ordered several boxes for take out.

Truck Bun by Chef Broosy is a Japanese fusion cuisine highlighted by their Ramen Bestsellers. The ramen noodles were awesome. I had it sit for a couple of minutes before trying it, as I am very particular with the texture after being drenched in hot soup. I was so impressed as I sank my teeth in - the consistency of the noodles stayed perfectly firm and succulent! For Php180, it is truly worth every cent, combined with fresh elements of ramen, vegetables, and thick savory pork slices. The serving is almost good for two, so for a hunger not as big as mine, there is a petite version for Php100.

The Truck Bun by Chef Broosy’s version of the Kani Salad is an overflowing delight of crisp vegetables and fresh crabs sticks drizzled with a special mayo. For Php140, this is quite a bargain as this dish is actually good for sharing.

Never miss out on the Chili Cheese Fries, the huge serving for only Php100 is loaded with perfectly fried fries topped with Chili con carne and cheese.

Another mainstay is Soulfood, a Southern American inspired cuisine highlighted by their Fajitas and Burritos! Their servings are truly spectacular – compared to another fastfood restaurant that serves Fajitas, their serving is about 50% more and at a lower price! The taste? Impressive! Amazingly flavorful chicken, rice, cheese, and fresh vegetables wrapped in soft tortilla.

The Barbecue Pulled Pork is for Php150 – served in a bun and overflowing with sumptuous tender shredded pork, corn, and onions. For an average person, it would be best to have it sliced in half – this is one humongous sandwich fit for a sumo’s hunger.
