Hanggang saan aabot ang P500 mo? LRT2: Betty Go- Belmonte Station

By: - 05/28/2018

Betty Go-Belmonte is one of the low-key stations of LRT 2. It is usually quiet at hindi masyadong marami ang sumasakay at bumabang pasahero sa istasyong ito.
And if you will look around, wala ring masyadong malalaki o matataas na building at maliliwanag na ilaw tuwing gabi.
But it is not quite low key at all, especially when you try every nook and cranny. At kung ikaw ay matiyaga, you will discover a lot of places na hindi mo panghihinayangan gastusan ng panahon at pera.
Here are some places we tried with a P500 budget.

Coffee Stop Cafe

18 Vancouver, Quezon City

Alam ko ang feeling. To start your day right you need a cup of good coffee. Pero why settle for good when you can have it best dito sa Coffee Stop Cafe?

Kung di mo naman type mag-kape they have fruit juices and other coolers to chill your day. There are a lot of cakes and sandwiches on their menu na hindi rin mo dapat palagpasin.

Mocha Coffee Jelly = P155

HotBites (Open Kitchen Food Park)
22 P. Tuazon Blvd, Quezon City

They offer fried chicken in different flavors. So kung nagsasawa na sa the usual fried chicken ng mga fastfood, then why not try HotBites’ version? Meron silang tatlong best sellers at isa na riyan ang na-try naming super yummy na Korean Sweet and Spicy flavored bites.

Korean Sweet and
Spicy with rice + P150

Shawarma Stop (Open Kitchen Food Park)
22 P. Tuazon Blvd, Quezon City

Craving for shawarma? With rice man o just plain old wrap, dito ka mapapa-stop for a quick bite.
Unlike other shawarma na bursting with onions and tomatoes, dito mas lamang ang beef!

Shawarma wrap = P80

Gias’s Cakes and Pastries
#7 P. Tuazon Blvd, Cubao, Quezon City

Relatively new pero panalo sa presyo. Milk tea? Frappe? Waffles? Meron dito n’yan! Aside from their cafe, they also customize cakes for different occasion.

Matcha Milk tea
and Mais con yelo =P98

Total money spent: P483

Other places you must try

El Pago Sausages
Vancouver, Quezon City

A hole-in-the-wall home made sausage joint that opens in the evening. Magandang after-work tambayan or if you just want a bottle of beer or two with sausage as pulutan on the side.

Camp Suki
786 Aurora Blvd, Cubao, Quezon City

May special event na dapat puntahan and there’s a dress code, but you would not want to spend much for a gown or a cocktail dress? Or baka naman costume party ang dadaluhan? Then puntahan na ang Camp Suki for gown and costume rentals na mura naman.

Chocolate Lover
45 P. Tuazon Blvd, Cubao, Quezon City

Hindi isang dessert shop ito, but a shop for those who want to make cakes, pastries and other desserts! Baking supplies at iba pa para sa mga mahilig mag-bake at magluto.
