CAVITE | Tagaytay Food Park Nights at The Barracks Food Camp | Lakad Pilipinas

Barracks Food Camp Tagaytay Food Park

As if we weren’t gut-bustingly full yet, after another sumptuous dinner at Taal Vista Hotel’s Lobby Lounge, we went out into the chilly Tagaytay evening and off to another food place. We weren’t just going to any old restaurant, we’re going to a full blown food park, the Barracks Food Camp.

FRESH BIBINGKA AT BARRACKS FOOD CAMP, WE CAN’T EAT NO MORE

Alright, we really didn’t go here to eat. Heck, with our shirts bursting from the seams from non-stop eating in Tagaytay—we can’t eat even if you treat us and force it down our throats. What we were here for was to drink. Yes, Taal Vista Hotel has beer, but the ones at The Barracks Food Camp was a third of the price from those at the hotel; an easier, and far cheaper, way to get inebriated.

THE GANG AT THE FOOD PARK

The Barracks Food Camp is quite new to me, and it actually is, opening just June of this year. I was surprised that the whole thing is co-owned by actor Derek Ramsay. It’s the first time I’ve seen this food park in Tagaytay—heck, it’s the first time I’ve seen any food park in the city at all! Located a few meters away from the Skyranch, it’s actually quite convenient for us since we don’t need to ride a tricycle or jeepney on the way back.

Barracks Food Camp Tagaytay Band
THERE’S A BAND PLAYING

As the road sloped towards Barracks, I heard the faint intro to GN’R’s Sweet Child of Mine. There’s a live band! I wasn’t not sure if I’m gonna be happy about it or what, it’s kinda hard to chat with my friends with a full band competing for volume. Call it old age, but I now prefer my drinking places noise-free, lol. Anyways, they only play during Fridays to Sundays.

The band was in full tilt as we arrived at the gate and the place was packed. We got lucky a couple of tables were vacated as soon my friends sashayed towards the dining area.

ONE OF THE MORE INTERESTING FOOD STALLS AT BARRACKS

Barracks is a two-level medium-sized food park, they have about thirty stalls hawking everything from Pinoy street food like isaw and bibingka, to the usual sisig and hamburgers. I like the fact that they also have Tagaytay bulalo. Wandering about, I even saw a Japanese and Mexican stall at the ground floor. Quite a good mix of food choices.

THEY HAVE JAPANESE!

Vendors occupy the perimeter of the venue, the middle area reserved for seats. Out front was the band stage, and upstairs were more food stalls. The whole area is well lit—too bright, in fact—by a symphony of single incandescent bulbs held by a loose electrical wires for effect.

WE’RE HERE FOR BEER

Since we weren’t really here for the food, and we weren’t really gonna be able to sample any, I contented myself on observing what the other tables were having. And the ones they have looked quite delicious, unique, and huge—the servings are quite generous.

OH YES!

Bottles of beer were the only things that did occupy our table. They have the usual gamut of San Miguel Pale Pilsen, San Mig Light, Smirnoff, and of course, Red Horse Beer. A bucket with six bottles cost us PHP300.00, not bad, really, but you’d have to get your own ice on the second floor.

OUR FRIEND, C, JAMMING WITH THE BAND

We came quite late, around past ten in the evening, and Barracks closes at midnight. Before it can pull a Cinderalla on us, we managed to down two buckets of alcohol and have one of our friends do an Avril number with the band. Not a bad night on a food park. Next time, we promise we’d actually eat.
