New Food Hall Alert! Here’s A Peek Inside The Newly Opened The Grid Food Market In Power Plant

The Grid Food Market in Power Plant Mall in Rockwell has opened its doors for hungry patrons looking for a comforting gourmet feast of all sorts that is sure to satisfy their appetite.

Cuisines from different points of the globe created with much love and passion by our favorite rock star chefs is what The Grid Food Market is all about. Developed by the same restaurateurs who came up with Hole in the Wall in Century City Mall, The Grid isn’t like any food hall you’ve been to. The booths and stalls are exactly like each other—painted in taupe with accents of forest green, featuring a board with the restaurant’s top three main offerings written on it, and a chalkboard menu hanging in front. “When we got this place, we thought of doing something totally different. That’s when we decided to strip off their branding. Every stall should be identical, so that the focus is all about the food and the chefs behind it,” shares Charles Paw, President of the Tasteless Food Group.

“These are all the basics. These are what people want—quality food in a food hall setting,” he added. “When you visit a food park, everyone’s trying to be unique. They try to create a wild menu and you end up empty-handed. Here, we want to avoid that. Our goal is 70% of the menu is something familiar and then the 30% you can play around with,” Charles adds, as he walked us through the hall a few days before the soft opening.

The Grid is a one-stop shop for all the food we’ve been craving for and a set of new ones our adventurous taste buds would surely enjoy. What’s more, Charles and his team have curated the best of the best from the country’s top chefs, restaurateurs, and purveyors.
