Have you been to the famous Salcedo Saturday Market in Makati?
I first discovered this when I was taking my Masters Degree in Makati. I was amazed because I couldn’t believe that there was actually a market in a middle of Makati. But this market is different. First of all, it is clean and not wet (which is why I hate wet markets so much). They offer healthier food like gourmet fruits and vegetables and offer several choices of green leaves such as pako, talbos at bulaklak ng kalabasa, mustasa, bakchoy, taiwanese pechay, and more. Breakfasts are also available here and most of the Makati residents would eat here. If you want to eat barbecue, lechon, and shawarma for breakfast, this is the place to be!
Desserts are also available like like leche flan, maja blanca, nuts, suman and many other delicacies.
The market opens at around 7AM and then closes at around 2PM. So be sure to be there early.
