QUEZON City is a big city kaya maraming lugar na pasyalan at kainan ditto. But when it comes to food trip, one of the most visited areas is the Maginhawa street. Dinadayo ito not only by QC folks but also by foodies from different parts of Metro Manila.

Mahirap puntahan? Not really.

Madaming jeep at bus na dumadaan sa kahabaan ng Commonwealth avenue. Bababa ka lang sa Philcoa at ang unang kanto ay ang Masaya Street at susundan na ito ng Maginhawa.

Mahaba ang Maginhawa street and it would be better na alam mo na ang mga pupuntahan mo bago pa sumugod ditto.

1
Black Scoop Cafe
101 Maginhawa St., Diliman, Quezon City
Aside from its Instagrammable interiors, and perfect atmosphere for studying or simply chilling, affordable at sulit ang ibabayad mo na nasa kanilang menu. We had a blueberry cheesecake frappe ang surprisingly hindi kami na disappoint. Pro tip: Mix the whipped cream well para mas blended ang tamis-asim ng blueberry and cheesecake.

Medyo old na ang interior but totoong boneless ang chicken nila. You can even choose among three flavors for your chicken.

Friuli Trattoria
79A Maginhawa St., Diliman, Quezon City
Maliit, pero achieve ang Italy feels ng lugar. Aside from pasta, specialty rin nila ang pizza, and we can say na espesyal talaga ang pagkakaluto nila sa kanilang mga dish.

Aside from bingsu o shaved ice in English, meron din silang milk tea, milk shake, frappe, at yakult. Snow na snow sa lamig ang kanilang menu.
