Food News: GrantonWorld Launches the Ultimate All-You-Can-Eat Spree at Mercato Centrale

Ever wished you could go on an eating binge at Mercato Centrale? Now you can. GrantonWorld, a leading online shopping social e-commerce hub, recently launched the All-You-Can-Eat Spree at the Mercato Centrale offering diners a unique culinary adventure.

Indulge in old favorites and discover new ones at Mercato Centrale in an exciting and fun one hour All-You-Can-Eat experience like no other, an hour of pure culinary indulgence.

Mercato Centrale's laid back outdoor food market setting is the perfect backdrop for your culinary adventure. The convenient layout is easy to navigate, starting in one end, until a u-turn to reach the other end, with tasty bites in between.

The participating food stalls at Mercato Centrale preparing for the All-You-Can-Eat extravaganza...

...prepping all the ingredients for their signature dishes...

...as the sounds, sights and aroma fill your senses...

...and the food stalls are ready for battle.
The buzzer signals the start of the mad dash, and your culinary adventure begins...

And here's the cool part. To warm up the diners for the all-you-can-eat adventure, the spree began with a 5-minute shopping splurge where you can take home pre-packed items. It's a also a sneak preview where you can scout out the food, and pick the ones you'll come back to for the one hour all-you-can-eat spree.

And to make it easier for you, diners are supplied with reusable bags to stash the loot during the 5-minute spree. Nice touch. And the line builds up at Kimchi Pinoy, a fusion of Korean and Filipino cuisine with the popular Kimchi Fried Rice...

During the all-you-can-eat spree, I reconnected with old favorites at Mercato Centrale. Kat Reantazo, the creative driving force behind Crunchy Belly by Carlo's Kitchen, the incredibly crisp strips of pork belly, an all-time favorite, and yes, sinfully irresistible.

And Crunchy Belly by Carlo's Kitchen is easy to spot, just look for the long queue of happy faces...

If you like crispy bacon, you'll definitely love this. Forget your diet, this is just too good to pass up. Crunchy, lightly salted, pure pork bliss, what's not to like? Just give in and go with the flow...

And you'll find some cool new tasty discoveries as well, like the Lasagna Cups from Pastafarian, bite-sized treats of your favorite lasagna.

Liquor in ice cream? Cool. Frisch Liquor Ice Cream, smooth and rich ice cream creatively infused with liquor, a refreshingly unique twist to the usual ice cream.

And some innovative burgers from Monster Burger...

...like the unique Kaldereta Burger.

Bistrology's Rice Balls, breaded and deep-fried made with creamy and cheesey risotto, and a variety of stuffings like, bacon, tinapa (dried fish), or the popular 3-cheese Arancini with aligue (crab fat).

Then, there are desserts for any sugar fix...

...including elegant cakes from Bambi's House of Desserts...

...and some cool mini-cupcakes.

Ping Gu's Mushroom Fries, freshly picked organic mushrooms that are breaded, deep-fried in canola, and served with a variety of dips, including creamy pesto, salsa, honey mustard, and sweet chili. Different and tasty, a real treat for mushroom lovers.

And don't forget to stop by Mio Gelato's cool truck...

...for some cool frozen treats.

There's just so much more, including authentic Vigan Empanada...

...to barbecue, pita wraps, pizza rolls, fried rice, Japanese food, cheesesteaks, roast beef and turkey sandwiches and fresh juices. All under one tent.
