The Return to Il Mercanti

I just can't get enough of Il Mercanti so I returned to try some stalls that I wasn't able to try during my first visit. I went again with the Northies. :)

Here are other stalls which you should try:

1. King Chicken

Chicken Poppers

I got the Chicken Poppers (Php 65) which you can choose plain, with soy garlic or with chili soy garlic. I got mine in soy garlic. A serving is good for sharing, which is always a good thing for me. I was expecting a bit more flavor, but it didn't have much of the soy garlic I expected. It was a good comfort food though.

2. the street food

street food galore!

I didn't see any name on the stall but one would not miss the street food galore. Kwek Kwek, isaw, barbeque, they have it!


My friends got two long sticks of isaw at Php 20 a stick. Too bad I'm not keen on eating isaw.

3. Med Chef

Of course, I won't miss dessert! I bought Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce (Php 60) while my friend got S'mores Cake (Php 60).

The cake was so filling that I had to take it home. The cake wasn't too sweet. Judging the looks of the friends, I think they loved the S' mores.

My friends got Amburger's Juicy Lucy Bacon Mushroom Melt (Php 250) this time.

And claimed it wasn't tough. Oh well, maybe my patty wasn't grilled well last time.

What I love about Il Mercanti is that it is not too crowded, it was very easy for us to find seats. The grills are placed strategically so that customers will not be bothered with the smoke.

Am I getting addicted to Il Mercanti? I guess I am.
