This insta-worthy and familiar sight brings back nostalgic memories of hanging out and chatting with our friends under our void decks. The only difference is the air conditioning and having a wide variety of food to choose from instead of tapao-ing food from a nearby convenience store.

The seating area very closely resembles the void deck form our memories– from the hanging bird cages and tiled floors to the bright pink mosaic tables and chairs. Each stall front also resembles those of pushcarts and even has a block number and street name.
