Shooting hoops and searching for some grub — you can’t get any more Pinoy than that! At the latest food park in the metro, you can enjoy both. Whether you’re looking to sweat it out over a game of basketball, or if you just want to unwind with some good eats, Taft Food by the Court will surely strike your fancy.
For those looking to practice those three pointers, and execute those plays, three full size courts are available for rent. Bring your family, your barkada, or your whole team for a game of ball, then hit the food stalls and refuel with their yummy selection of bites.
If basketball is not your thing, fret not, their food options are worth a shot.
Taft Food by the Court currently houses ten food and drink stalls, ranging from international fares like Korean and Japanese, to a mix of Mexican and South American, to Persian favorites and seafood feasts, to grilled meats and Pinoy favorites, including sweet concoctions and refreshing sips. There’s definitely something to tickle everyone’s taste buds.
Conveniently located along Taft Avenue, people who work, live or go to school in Pasay, will be spoilt for choice with the wide array of dishes available. Zoë and I were able to see and try some of the bites available during the media launch. Check out all the food!
