Hole in the Wall, upscale Makati food hall, shuts down after 6 years

Makati food haunt Hole in the Wall is shutting its doors, six years after it first delivered a new dining experience to city dwellers.

Tasteless Group announced the food hall’s closure yesterday, Nov. 18, on Facebook. Located at Century City Mall in Makati, it upped the ante on the communal dining experience with modern and cozy interiors while offering different cuisines from upmarket food stalls.

“This is a tough one. Hole in The Wall was our most ambitious project at the time. Inspired by chef-driven food halls abroad, we made it our mission to build the best one we could in Manila,” the team behind the food hall said.

“Hole in the Wall was a proof of concept. It showed that a thoughtful, refined approach to dining halls could work here. Seeing similar concepts open after we did made us proud. It felt like the start of a new era for local dining, one that we helped usher in.”

Tasteless Group also announced today, Nov. 19, that it is selling its kitchen equipment and furniture. Interested customers can visit Hole in the Wall from Nov. 20 to 29, or check its Viber community regarding the sale.

The team behind Hole in the Wall seeks continued support for its other food offerings. Bad Bird and Scout’s Honor, which had their beginnings at the food hall, have expanded into restaurants. Meanwhile, another food hall, The Grid Food Market, is still welcoming patrons in Powerplant Mall.  /ra
