One random weeknight of milkshake craving brought us to Maginhawa Street in Teacher’s Village, Quezon City. Now a growing food district, Maginhawa is home to Pino, Pi Breakfast and Pies, Van Gogh is Bipolar, Gayuma ni Maria, Artsy Café, and more, all bringing in people to the area jokingly called "Magins." One specific compound (look for the metal screen gate!), the StrEAT Park at Maginhawa is made up of food trucks and tables set up on a manicured lawn.
Below, the 9 things we saw that will make you want to hop in your car for a divey food trip:
Rice Bowls that will fill your tummy and won’t burn holes in your pockets
Surf board tables and milkshakes that bring boys to the bar
Bottled Shakes a la Bora’s famous Jonah’s from this Forever Summer stop
Scooby Doo vans that serve food
Bagnet and really good quail eggs (yes, you can get them from one store)
Professions of love
Buffalo wings and legs
The chill QC crowd (with the ever constant stream of Southern visitors)
Of course there’s more to see at this hot new spot up north so if we were you, we’d go check it out, stat!
Open Mondays to Thursday 5pm to 11pm, Friday to Sunday 5pm to 2am.
