Last June 29, I along with my fellow bloggers were invited to the grand opening of Cocina Centrale! This event was held in Marquee Mall at exactly 6PM. We were really privilegedand honored to be invited by the Mercato Centrale Group. The day was full of mouthwatering local and metro's famous dishes, from the ihaw-ihaw of Luring's up to the the delicious Cheese Steak Shop of Manila! It was indeed a successful event though after the ribbon cutting, heavy rain took over for about an hour! A good omen for the launch, yes? Yes! Blessings from above. :)
Anyways, without further adieu, enjoy the photos I took during the grand opening!
