2016 was the year that food parks emerged in the country. In just a short amount of time, this new concept of “food haven” is embraced and loved by many. Who wouldn’t? Food parks offer the best variety of food selection in one roof; not to mention, each has their own charm giving its customers a unique gastronomical experience.
In fact, in Quezon City alone you will find many great food parks one of which is Iron Cabana.
Getting to Know Iron Cabana
Iron Cabana is the brainchild of two friends – Rona and Bianca together with Noel, the former’s brother-in-law. At first, they only planned on renting a stall but when a great opportunity knocked, they answered.
The vacant lot of 316 Congressional Avenue Extension is now a hidden culinary playground.
Behind the name: Iron Cabana is an anagram for the name of the owners created by Noel.
Iron = metal; Cabana = (Spanish) indigenous hut
If you want a detour from the norm, you are welcome at the Iron Cabana Food Park. With 12 stalls now serving (and 4 more about to open), you can definitely taste whatever you crave for.
