Worth a visit: New air-conditioned indoor food park in Quezon City

There is a new food park in Quezon City and it's not your usual for it is located indoors, roofed, air-conditioned, and has WiFi for its guests.

Lovecraft Food Park has only been operating for a few months.

Lovecraft Food Park Wall Art
We love this painting!


The name of the food park was based on H. P. Lovecraft, an American best-selling author of horror fiction books. We're guessing the owners of this food park are huge fans of the author.

Their painting and logo is very interesting as it presented characters in the Filipino folklore.

Do not worry though. There is nothing scary about this place at all. It is in fact the opposite. 

When you enter the park, you'll immediately notice the sofas and unconventional chairs made of wood and other materials. And yes, couch inside a food park!

From a long, tiring day at work, or at school, you can cozy up and relax in this place. It's very accessible to employees of St. Luke's Quezon City, and students from the universities near Cubao.

It's so spacious
On Saturday nights, Lovecraft even has a live band with mostly indie artists. 

During our visit, we were serenaded by the soulful music of Angel Paylado and Ryan. 

Really great music, guys!

Lovecraft also boasts their gaming area. They have a PS4 for guests where you can play for P100 per hour, already good for two persons. 


They've got other games to choose from
They also hold movie marathon on a wide screen on some days with mostly Marvel movies being screened for free.

Because of this, Lovecraft Food Park is a perfect place not just for friends hanging out but also for family bonding. 

Lovecraft values genuine fun so the establishment is alcohol-free. You can only smoke in their smoking area where you can also dine the al fresco way. Unfortunately for some, but fortunately for families and friends who just want to hangout and enjoy the food that the park offers. Moreover, it also has enough parking space for its guests.

You can choose your food from several food stalls in the park.

F-O-O-D!

Here's The Eatventurers' review on some of the food stalls at Lovecraft Food Park:

Pastasia



From the entrance to the right you can see Pastasia which specializes in pasta dishes, well isn't it obvious with the name? Just kidding! 

The Eatventurers tried their Spiced Pesto Pasta (P120) and we loved it. There are several pesto pastas in the market and some are "nakakaumay." Not this one though, the dish was well-seasoned. The spices and salt elevated the flavors of the dish. You can also see bits of tomatoes, onions, and fish. The sauce was well-distributed, it coated the pasta in an amazing way.

You'll get almost the same taste every bite. It is amazing that it is being ran by Thomasian students.

Hot Bites



Beside Pastasia is Hot Bites. They don't bite though. Hot Bites mainly offers chicken bites. You can choose original or your favorite flavor. 

We tried Loaded Bites (Solo - P115), Korean Sweet & Spicy Bites (Solo - P115), Nori Bites (Solo - P115), and Original Chicken Bites (Solo - P90).


The Eatventurers' favorite among these flavors is the Loaded Bites. It is Original Chicken Bites topped with cheese sauce, garlic mayo, bacon bits. 

Loaded Bites!

In our opinion, it is a little bit expensive compared to the mainstream ones but better in taste. When you have a taste of their bite, it would be difficult to stop - well, unless your wallet's empty. 

You can add P35 and try their Turmeric Rice. Add P15 more to make the rice unlimited.

Inari


Third stall is Inari. It's located on the right side of the huge painting in the middle. It specializes in Japanese cuisine with a twist. They offer Katsus, Sushi Platters, and Japanese Burritos. 

We tried one of their bestselling burritos, Choji (P160). Choji is composed of pork sukiyaki, cabbage, hash, and yum-yum sauce. These are then wrapped in a nori-infused pita bread, made fresh everyday. The Eatventurers' loved their sauce. It was really yummy! Caution though, their burritos are pretty heavy. They are already good for two. 

Great innovation for burrito!
Tip: look for Adobo on their menu.

Shabu-shabu (formerly Crab Shack)


Unfortunately, your favorite Crab Shack is being re-branded so technically the stall is still unnamed. Their menu is being redesigned. They don't even have a new logo yet.

For now, they are offering Shabu-shabu at a very low price of P99. What's interesting about this is its presentation. The noodles, submerged in a rich broth, and topped with: crabstick, lobster ball, and prawn square, are in a beaker. It also comes with their special sauce where you may dip your toppings, or just directly add them to the broth - not too much! Want to know something crazier? The sauce is placed in a fecal container.

Explore your inner chemist and try this one!

It really is a Shabu Lab! According to the owners, pun intended.


Monster Burger


Just beside the Shabu-shabu stall is Monster Burger. You might have heard or seen them elsewhere. The owner is a franchisee. 

What's special about this franchise is that you can order Terminator (P499 for six persons) and their MB sliders (P169) exclusively in Lovecraft branch.


We tried their Cheesy Overload Burger (99) and their Hungarian Sausage (P79). They weren't kidding about the overload part on their burger. It is also made with 100% beef!



On the other hand, we liked Monster Burger's Hungarian Sausage better. It is monstrous and flavorful. These are all served with chips!

Drinks Machine / Sweet Escape




These are the first two stalls you will see once you enter the food park. 

For drinks and some desserts, these are your go-to-stalls. You can order smoothies, frappes, from Drinks Machine, while you can order flavored shaved ice from Sweet Escape. 

We tried their watermelon smoothie in a light bulb container (P150). We also tried Wintermelon Milktea (P100), and Grape Shaved Ice (P50). We loved the watermelon drink, but we didn't like their milktea that much, something felt off about the pearls.





Aside from the above-mentioned stalls, there are still other food booths to visit at Lovecraft. More choices of food for you!

Bacon Bliss



This is perfect for bacon-lovers.

Burnt


If you are looking for grilled meats, Burnt is also at Lovecraft to serve you.

East Street

East Street meanwhile serves Thai food. They've got Pad Thai!

 If you're full from eating at the stalls, they allow take-outs.

The Lovecraft Food Park is still under improvement since it is still new. Cut them some slack since they are not yet done decorating the area. There will be new food stalls opening soon. Books of H.P. Lovecraft and other designs are yet to be materialized but we'd say it is worth the visit.

Overall Eatventurers' rating: 3/5
