QC's food districts

One of the most popular food districts in the metro is located within Teachers Village in Quezon City. One of the first food districts in Metro Manila, Maginhawa Street is popular among food trippers because of its array of dining options. At first, it only had a few restaurants catering to the hungry students and locals, but as the years went by, more and more restaurants started filling up its stretch. Establishments such as restaurants, holes-in-the-wall, and even food parks have found their home at this street.

Friuli Trattoria is one of the pioneer restaurants in Maginhawa. From pizzas, pastas, and even gelato, this restaurant is the go-to place if you're craving for some authentic Italian fare. Up until now, it remains one of the most popular establishments in the district for a meal. Meanwhile, Crazy Katsu is the answer to your Japanese food cravings. Aside from katsudon¸ you may also order sukiyaki and curry rice at this affordable Japanese joint. Beyond these two favorite restaurants, there's a lot more that you can enjoy at this premier food district.

Food parks are another place where you can eat in Maginhawa. These establishments are perfect for foodies who are picky when it comes to food, as you can order dishes from various kiosks. StrEATand Merkanto International Street Food are just two of the food parks you'll find in the district, both of which offer various cuisines and grub so if you can't decide between eating pad thai or chicken wings, then you can just head to a food park.

Katipunan is another great place for a food trip. The vibe is the same as Maginhawa since it is located near schools and universities but with the presence of the UP Town Center Mall, more popular and upscale restaurants can also be found there so if you feel like spending a bit more for delicious food, it's a great place for you to eat as well. Chubby Chicken, Game Over PH, Third Cup Café, and Jeepney Bistro are just a few places where you can get some delicious grub when in Katipunan.
