While at the SM North Edsa Sky Garden, I noticed a long queue in one of the food carts, turned out that they are lining up for Mango-ong. Mango-ong, a stall that sells green mangoes and singkamas with bagoong or shrimp paste. The lowly mangga’t bagoong often seen in carts in the streets leveled up into a foodcart in malls just like the ice scramble.
I bought one for take-out. 1 cheek of green mango is Php 20. They charge you for the take-out box though, and also for the extra scoops of bagoong.
They have different flavors of bagoong: regular; regular spicy; sweet, sweet & spicy; extra hot, salty; and salty & spicy. I had Sweet & Spicy.
For those who are wondering about Mango-ong franchise, they are NOT OPEN FOR FRANCHISE. They posted this message in their foodcarts as well:
