Maginhawa: The Eat Street

Originally posted April 2011, updated September 2014

I feel really fortunate to be living on Maginhawa Street, one of the best go-to places for a food trip around the metro. There’s a great range of restaurants and types of cuisine to fit any mood and craving. A lot of the restos in the area also have this laid-back and artsy vibe, which I love.  Since a lot of the Maginhawa establishments have come and gone since I first wrote about this, I decided that it’s high time that I updated this post (after my article in Sunday Inquirer Magazine came out.)

Below is an updated directory of where to to eat along Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Diliman, Quezon City. I’ve also included a few notable restaurants in the Maginhawa orbit/Teacher’s Village/Sikatuna area that are not necessarily on Maginhawa street. Check back often because this post gets updated frequently. Lots of new restos have opened up on the street that I’m still planning to try :)

In celebration of Quezon City’s 75th anniversary, there will be a Quezon City Food Festival this coming October 11, 2014, to be held along Maginhawa Street! They’ll be closing down the whole street for the food fest. For updates, check this page on Facebook.
