Our second day of food trippin' around Iloilo Business Park had us hopping form one restaurant to another. This time it was all about homegrown cuisine and local favorites. And just like the our previous gastronomic adventure, it was five restaurants in one day that had us all enjoy with our tummies almost reaching its max cap. But it was another great and sumptuous way of experiencing the gastronomic colors and wonderful flavors of the the Iloilo Festive Walk Parade.
The 1.1 kilometer Festive Walk Parade is set to be come the longest dining and shopping strip in this part of the country. Adjacent to BPO offices and the soon to open Festive Walk Mall, it is a gastronomic showcase of local and homegrown food joints as well as big players in the food service industry.
Reminiscent of the Santana Row in California, it also has touches of art noveau and art deco that also pays homage to Iloilo City's very own Calle Real. The row of restaurants and retail shops is complemented with wide arcades and landscaped walkways making the stroll of the entire Festive Walk Parade one captivating and lively experience.
