Once you’ve heard Maginhawa, what comes first in your mind? I know, most probably it would be FOOD. FOOD TRIP. Everything about FOOD. As we can see a lot of posts from different social media sites, Maginhawa Street will take you in an instagramable places/restaurants.
Let me share my own experience in Maginhawa. At first, I thought Maginhawa street is just a street na tabi-tabi yung mga restaurant na it wouldn’t be difficult for us to find a place to eat at. (Sorry, I’m from Cavite, I don’t have any idea about it. Hahaha) But when we already reached the place it was different from what I’ve expected. So Maginhawa street is located inside the U.P. Village, some are in Teacher’s Village and Sikatuna Village and hindi tabi-tabi yung mga restaurant. Medyo malalayo sila sa isa’t isa. Hahaha! Para itong nasa main road ng village (please correct me about this, main road nga ba? hahaha) and it’s like 3 houses before ka ulit makakita ng restaurant. (well just some of them) We really had a hard time to find a particular place to eat. Anyway, I’ll give some tips for those first timers, like me and for those people who are not familiar with the place.
TIP# 1 Before going to Maginhawa make sure that you know the restaurant you want to eat. Kasi based on what we’ve experienced, we forgot to search online for the restaurants. It really consumes so much time for us. Luckily, tricycle drivers around the village are familiar with those restaurants. Kahit i-describe mo lang, kuya, yung may harry potter motif or you can ask them kung saan ang pinakamagandang puntahan. May mga ire-recommend sila sa inyo.
TIP# 2 Wag kayo masyadong magpa-late mas lalo na if that’s your first time. Around 4:30pm na kami nakarating, and that was month of January pa so medyo mabilis dumilim that time and we still can’t decide where to eat, what to eat. So we ended up like, 3 restaurants lang.
TIP# 3 I think it’s better to wear comfy shoes mas lalo na if wala kayong dalang car. You really need to trek. Hahaha
Thanks to manong tricycle driver for dropping us by here in 150 maginhawa food park. Hindi na kami nahirapan para maghanap uli nang makakainan. Forgot to take pictures of the food. Natakam agad ang lola. Anyway, here are some of the photos 🙂
