The new food park is planned to feature “Opon’s Best,” which includes the place’s featured foods and delicacies. It opens every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 5:30 PM until midnight.
Various kiosks will fill the entire place, where food will be the only ones available for now, according to Lapu-Lapu City’s Public Information Officer Mark Anthony Bautista. However, they will allow the display of other products soon, as they are still organizing this.
It has also been reported that the different food sold at the food park went through taste testing by the city officials, including Mayor Chan and other officials. “Miagi na sila og food tasting upon displaying their food products, there are some nga wala makapasar tungod dunay almost the same ang gibaligya,” said Bautista.
The night market is expected to last only until December 25, Bautista added.
