I’m off from work today and Gabby has been enjoying his cartoon-all-day-pre-school vacation, so we thought of fetching Tina from her work.  Her duty from O.R. ends at 2PM and since probably we’re looking for an alternative place other than going to the malls, coffee shops and restaurants, we decided to drop by a market in Quezon City which is a stone-throw away from (my former and) Tina’s workplace.


Before hitting the famous market, it’s common along these streets to see locally made handicrafts, decors and furnitures inside and out of Dapitan Arcade. Even its sidewalks had these spread…

Then few steps from Dapitan Arcade is this …

Where  wrought-iron furnitures and tiffany chairs and ceramic and stonewares that I’m sure anyone can haggle for a cheaper price than somewhere else are all for sale…

Ofcourse you know we went there not for these wonderful buys but certainly for something to satisfy our gastronomic cravings, lol.

Do you like kakanin  (rice cakes) ?


Puto,  Kutsinta  or  dimsum (kikiam and siomai) perhaps ?


What about jap rolls like california maki with some wasabi ?


These are sold in SUKI MARKET for very affordable prices.  The rice cakes are up for grab for only PhP 40 – 60 while  California maki and other jap rolls can be bought for price range of PhP 80 to PhP 350 (biggest bilao).  We bought and took home the medium sized bilao of these rolls (PhP 200) along with other nice-for-bites…


It would take probably two or more snack sessions before we finished all of these. We shared some to our household. =)

Have you been to Suki Market ?

  3. Hi Doc,

    The cakes look yummy—but my favorite would be the Jap rolls. This market is very near my house in Maria Clara, St. Medyo napapadaan din ako dito pag weekends–baka nagkasalubong na tayo dun, Doc!

    1. you bet Ms.Jess, those tiffany chairs are really nice especially for parties.
      i just failed to capture the wooden chairs there which appear more vintage.

  4. aw,doc…you’re making me hungry! 😉 whatever that assorted cake at the lower right side, it really looks delish! is that similar to “sapin-sapin?”
    I like the name, “Suki Market”, sounds friendly

    1. hi stephanie! thank you for reading my blog however, my family and i are currently based in penang so i don’t have idea if this market is open on sundays.

Thank you for your comments!
