Lakefront , Sucat , Muntinlupa City – Philippines
A stroll and a fun way to relax the sunset grill is a way to bring the residents of Lakefront, their visitors, and the surrounding villages to enjoy the Vista community’s open spaces. I have went to this place several months ago and enjoyed the great view , however i did not brought any camera to capture the moment .
white tents at the center
The organizers ( BAGA Manila ) has placed several big white tents at the center together with white wooden dining tables and chairs. The place also boasts of outdoor tables complete with cloth lanterns that festoon the place . It is well-lighted had had established a walking path within the picnic area. There is also an ample parking space for those planning to bring their cars or vans.

What better way is there to appreciate the great outdoors than to put up those tents, lay out the picnic tables, and heat up the grills. The place is also friendly to pet dogs and cats. I have seen several pet owners taking their pet for an afternoon of stroll.
It was organized by Barbecuers and Grillers Association ( BAGA) or BAGA Manila, the event attracts a lot of people from all walks of life. Among the top favorites are their barbecue, chicken intestines , betamax and isaw . They only cost between Php 25 to Php 35.00 which is much cheaper compared to the other food stalls in Metro Manila. There are 4 to 5 stalls which offered different arrays of home-style barbecue, Their only difference is the way they have marinated the pork , dipping condiments usually made from vinegar and how they grill them. One of the most popular is Donna’s Grill – Its pork barbecue is quite tender and marinated to perfection.
My Juice stall specializes on a variety of juices like 4 season with real fruits bits , buko pandan, buko , black gulaman and dalandan juice.
