Streat: Maginhawa Food Park is a mother-daughter business run by Mrs. Kitty and Cheska Del Castillo. Originally planned to be a building, they explored other options to utilize the space. Kitty’s experience in the food industry (creator of Starr’s Famous Shakes) made for a perfect match with the concept and business model crafted by her daughter, marketing planner and graphic designer.
The space respects individual taste in a collective space. Hosting both food trucks and food containers with diverse food offers it aims to be a hub for specialty and artisan food and drink concepts. Its open fresh air and alfresco dinning is the perfect atmosphere to bringing a community of students, residents, visual artists and musicians, and local organizations together. It was important to keep the look and the feel of the tenants consistent with the overall laidback, eclectic, and crafty urbanity of the park.
BUT BEYOND THE FOOD—Streat aims to be a platform for and convergence point of budding, start-up, emerging community of artist and entrepreneurs. Food is just one part of the experience. Built to be an actual 620 sqm mini park, the space encourages cultural culmination through various socials and activities. It is an active environment that is all about celebrating artistic sensibilities.
There are great plans to build the space as convergence point of arts and culture in the area. There is a reason of the space being as it is. Its huge bathroom wall was made for outdoor film showings specifically for organizations and indie filmmakers who are looking to display their work. Empty walls are reserved for live street painting sessions from local artist groups. The wide grass area (aka garden) is ideal for outdoor exhibitions of different mediums and media, from installations to paintings to photographs. Also, local acoustic unplugged performances are much encouraged to expose the resident talent from the area. Art workshops are to be scheduled in the coming months as well. We aim to grow and nurture a local art scene.
Streat has a wide range of food offers—having 4 food trucks and 7 food containers. We offer specialty coffee, bread, ice cream, burgers, sizzling plates, secret sauces on cutlets and smoothies. Our cuisine travels from South East Asia, Korea, Turkey, Italy, Mexico and Southern Louisiana Creole.
