A Glimpse of Fisher Mall (Quezon City)

Fisher Mall is the newest landmark in Quezon City. It opened on January 29, 2014, but it was only last weekend that I got the chance to visit this mall. And one good thing about it is that parking is free (if your purchase reaches a certain amount) and spacious. It was a Sunday but much to my surprise there were plenty of parking spaces located in the basement. Just after a few turns, we easily found a parking space.

Having a free parking space is a plus for any mall. As a car owner, I often ask why I need to pay for parking space when I am already patronizing the mall? With so many malls being built, there are very few malls that offer a free parking space - one of which is SM Fairview in Quezon City. I never expected that a posh mall such as Fisher Mall would provide a free parking space. I hope that this policy remains for a long time.

Up the elevator, we headed to a clean and a well-lighted food court.  Aside from the usual fast food chains, I was surprised that one of the best tasting lechon – Elar’s lechon -  is here.  The long queue of customers is a testament to the great taste of this lechon.

We continued to walk around Fisher Mall fully appreciating its cool ambiance. We asked ourselves, which mall can it be compared with. I began thinking of other malls.  SM Aura in Taguig came to mind. I think however that this mall is comparable with the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.  While Fisher Mall is not as huge compared to the MOA, the former’s design has creatively and intelligently made it classy and comfortableOnce inside the mall it is easy to forget that the place used to be the site of the Pantranco Bus Terminal.

At the 3rd floor of this mall, there is a church where masses are held with the following schedule:

Novena Mass Celebration
First Wednesday of the Month
Our Lady of Perpetual Help
6:30 PM

First Friday of the Month
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
6:30 PM

Sunday Mass Celebration
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM
4:00 PM – 5: 00 PM (Chinese Mass)
Anticipated Mass Schedule 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Saturday

Fisher Mall also has a chic and state of the art cinemas where photos of old Filipino screen icons are displayed reminiscent of the Eastwood Cinemas in Libis, Quezon City.  

Fisher Mall is indeed one mall worth visiting in Quezon City.
