The food court in St. James Bazaar is filled with a variety of cuisines – Filipino, French, Japanese, Chinese, Persian, and more. The usual favorites were there – Hecky’s Lechon, Persian Shawarma, and Vaca de Leche. Notable brands such as Yellow Cab, Army Navy, Brother’s Burger, Serye and Barrio Fiesta have also set-up shop. Desserts include Coolman, Theobroma, Koolshaves and something new – Apple Fries. Food is definitely not the cheapest starting at around PHP100.00 for a decent meal.
We tried the following food –
1. Hecky’s Lechon: The first day we tried it, we couldn’t get our hands off it. The skin was crispy and the meat was tender and tasty. When we tried it the 2nd time though, the skin was not as crispy anymore. (Price: PHP200.00 / 250 grams)
Hecky’s Lechon came out with a Lechon meal for PHP100.00.
2. Barrio Fiesta’s Laing: Laing is made from Taro Leaves and coconut milk. This was yummy. (Price: PHP110.00)
We also tried the Vaca de Leche, Army Navy’s Burritos and the Persian Shawarma.
