Here's a new cool spot where you can hang out next!

From Maginhawa to Commonwealth, owner Cheska Del Castillo brings the famous StrEAT Food Park to the South! Found at Everest Sky Pitch and conveniently located five minutes away from Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna, South StrEAT is the place to be if you're looking for a cool summer spot.

With the emergence of food parks in the metro, Cheska, along with her parents, decided to venture down south "to capture both a tourist and residential market." And in order to do this, they needed an edge among the rest, which led them to conjure up a space that championed the arts. Anchored on Memphis Milano (with a little Miami Art Deco vibes), the place echoes the '80s art movement created by Ettore Sottsass that went against minimalism. Cheska shares with Preview, "Memphis Milano is part of that new era of art that bannered 'Less Is A Bore.' We wanted South StrEAT to be not only about food but a representation of a movement similar to what it stands for. Our move is to deviate from the commonly used term 'food park' by associating our look with something that represents reinvention."

But more than the art, South StrEAT celebrates food. It's a place, which according to Cheska, advocates for young entrepreneurs. "My mom herself was a micro entrepreneur so we wanted to be that platform for people like my mom. It's like an incubation center for entrepreneurs looking for a platform to execute their ideas."

A perfect marriage of art and food, the food park is also totally Instagram-worthy! As we visited every nook and cranny of the place, we decided to round up the some OOTD ideas for you. Scroll down and get ready to include this place in your next out-of-town trip!
