Friday Finds 04: Dinner At The Market By Sugbo Mercado

Lately, flu and other sickness have been affecting my friends and relatives. Some took a day off from work or school while others spent a few days in the hospital. I had time to visit them in one of the famous hospitals here in Cebu, UCMed. Right after the visitation, we looked for a place to eat our dinner. Good thing The Market is just behind the hospital.

It was our first time dining at the Market. It was around 8pm when we got there. There are plenty of food stalls you can choose, from those healthy options to those perfect for your cheat days. Every booth has something unique to offer. We had grilled meat for our dinner, and that was worth it. My personal favorite was the real fruit shakes.

I can say the place is really spacious. Even on Friday night, there was enough space for everyone. I bet the weekends will be a bit crowded. The tables vary in sizes. You can opt for bigger ones that can occupy larger groups of 8 people. The most common though is excellent for 4 people.

I love how they covered the flooring with gravel and added from stepping blocks that will serve as pathways. In this way, puddles won’t build up during the rainy days. It’s also an advantage to have secured roof for everyone to keep everyone dry. There is just one instance during our visit that it rains so hard that water sprinkles started to get inside.

The ambiance was so calm and relaxing. There was an acoustic band that serenades the diners. Most of the songs played are love songs, so I think couples will really appreciate it. You are also free to request a song from the band as long as they are familiar with it. To be honest, I was impressed with the woman singer at that time because her voice is one of a kind.

If you're wondering on how to get here, there are many ways to choose from. You can ride a Jeepney going to Parkmall with 01K code and drop at UCmed. You may also take MyBus at SM City Cebu and stop at UCMed. From the UCMed, it won't be hard to spot.
