Streetmarket Boracay recently opened in Station X, a hip new commercial area beside Hue Hotel (rising soon) in Station 2, Boracay.
Streetmarket is the island's first and only specialty food hall, and here you are spoiled with many food options. It's a far cry from the typical food courts, of course -- specialty is the keyword here, as the folks behind this food hall concept meticulously curated the mix of cuisine and dishes to offer food from different countries, keeping in mind the comfort food factor both local and foreign travelers may be seeking, while enjoying the dishes in a beach setting.
All stalls in Streetmarket Boracay are now open, and with that, here is your hungry guide that you can keep handy to plan out your food crawl! Come hungry and armed with an adventurous appetite. Here's what is in store for you!
