13 Reasons Why You Should Visit 150 Maginhawa Food Park




We Filipinos love food! Filipinos being natural food lovers have developed the culture of dining as an extension of social interaction. So even though there are food parks sprouting like mushrooms almost every month around the metro, most of them are thriving and fast becoming a go-to place of today's millennials. They are worth the hype to say the least! One of them is 150 Maginhawa Food Park strategically located in Quezon City's melting pot street of cuisines.

Named after its address, 150 Maginhawa Food Park is your ideal place to dine and chill. Just a few blocks pass the Maginhawa-Malingap intersection you will be welcomed by a facade of warm-colored Japanese lanterns surrounding a Sampaloc tree.

It is the first food park to offer fresh hand-pulled noodles and while most food parks only offer beer, 150 Maginhawa Food Park advances from the competition with its own wine cellar. Another factor worth noting is its chill, laid-back appeal; an airy ambiance of greenery and sizeable dining space that puts its customers’ comfort into priority.

Here are the 13 reasons why you should visit this food park:

1. CELLAR 150





How many food parks in the metro that has its own wine cellar? So far I haven't heard of one. That's the good thing about 150 Maginhawa Food Park they offer choices! Cellar 150 offers brick oven pizzas, beers, and lots of wines from the affordable up to the most expensive. Featured here is their bestselling pizza Slow-cooked All Beef Pizza (P295.00) perfect paired with Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon (P590)


2. SHOU



Isn't fun to see your noodles freshly pulled right before your eyes?! You will enjoy each slurp of the
Old Beijing Braised Beef Noodles (P145.00) after you've seen how its made! Other must try at Shou is their Braised Sliced Pork (P149.00) and their Kutchay Dumpling (P99.00) Check out how they do their noodles in this video below:



3. THE PIGGERY







The Piggery offers all pork comfort food but what I really love about them is their Three Little Pigs  (P350.00), their Sizzling Sisig (P220) and of course their humongous Milo Dinosaur (P120 for 1 liter and P200 for 2 liters) that is really Instagram-worthy! They also have Calamansi Juice, Iced Tea and Strawberry Yakult.  The Piggery is one of my favorite stall for sure.


4. BALAY BAGNET





Balay Bagnet offers its signature Nilasing na Bagnet (P180.00) with different sauces or dips. It's a new take on the traditional and well-loved Ilocos Bagnet. It is serve with rice and Jelly Shots (strawberry & mango flavored) infused with a kick of vodka. I felt really guilty after eating this, haha! :)


5. SAM'S ICE CREAM AND SHAKES


After you've stuff your tummy with your 150 Maginhawa Food Park favorites end it with an order at Sam's Ice Cream and Shakes that serves great tasting ice cream buns and shakes. Their best sellers? Campfire Shake (P160.00) Cookie Monster (P110.00) and Berry Iced Tea (P100.00) Ideal for people who always take photos of their food before eating ;) 


6. YEAH! BURGERS x SANDWICHES





150 Maginhawa Food Park's newest tenant is YEAH! BURGERS x SANDWICHES. Now just on its soft opening but looks very promising! Just look at their The Ultimate Yeah Burger (P299.00) above. The quality and the presentation of the food that there serve will speaks up for it. Don't forget to try their satisfying Mushroom Swiss (P299.00), another winner!


7. DZ DINER





Their facade may looks simple but their food especially their Beef Salpicao (P180.00) is to die for. DZ Diner also offers Seafood Pesto (P150.00) which is another favorite of mine. They also serve fries, panini, pasta, and more!


8. STREETS OF SAIGON






Street of Saigon is a Vietnamese restaurant that sells the freshest Cha Gio (P180.00), Goi Won (P160.00) and Pho Bo (P190.00) Experience the local tasty cuisine from the streets of Vietnam to the streets of Maginhawa, the Food Hub of Quezon City. I will be visiting Ho Chi Minh two weeks from now and I can't wait to try if its the same there.


9. XURRERIA CAFÉ 


Xurreria Cafe gave a modern twist to Churreria, a Spanish doughnuts with xocolate, white xocolate, hazelnut, cream cheese and matcha dip. Their Classic Churros with Chocolate & Hazelnut Dip is only P150.00 good for 2-3 persons. They also serve hot, iced coffee and frappe too!


10. WINGS GONE WILD


Time to get dirty! Get those hands greasy! Try Wings Gone Wild's Classic Buffalo Wings with their signature dip.  Mild Classic Buffalo - P170.00 (5 pieces) Salt & Pepper Buffalo - P170.00 (5 pieces) Twisted Metal (Hungarian Sausage Topped w/ Twister Fries) - P145.00 (up to 3 persons)


11. MOLCAJETE MEXICAN CANTINA





With the tagline "Not your ordinary Mexican," Molcajete Mexican Cantina offers the usual Mexican favorites tacos, nachos, burritos, quesadillas & more. I recommend Carne Burrito (P175.00) already good for 2 persons, best partnered with Cucumber Lemonade (P65.00)


12. CANADIAN SNACK SHACK





Canada may not be known for its fancy cuisine. It's about simple food, fresh ingredients and a combination of textures and flavors like no other. I first tried Donair (P150.00) here at Canadian Snack Shack and it became an instant fave. Donair is  done by placing the meat is placed on a thin, Lebanese-style pita. Their Nanaimo Bars (P50.00) is another favorite. It is a bar dessert which requires no baking and is named after the city of Nanaimo, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. It consists of a wafer crumb-based layer topped by a layer of custard flavored butter icing which is covered with melted chocolate made from chocolate squares.  Their Canadian Bacon Pizza, pictured above is at P325.00


13. AHLEE'S





Ahlee's was established August 2015 and they promise to make your tastebuds explode on each visit. They offer one of the best tasting Liempo (P150.00) that I had in a long while. My blogger friends really liked their T-Bone Steak  (P250.00) also offered here. I'm actually expecting that their food will be just meh but Ahlee's suprised me in a good way! 


150 Maginhawa Food Park is another venture of The Fruitas Group of Companies. The same company that brought us brands such as Fruitas, Buko ni Fruitas, Black Pearl, Buko Loco, De Original Jamaican Pattie Shop & Juice Bar, The Mango Farm, Juice Avenue, John Lemon Juice Bar & more.

So whether you’re looking for your next gastronomical adventure, catch up and chill with friends, or dine and bond with the family, 150 Maginhawa Food Park is worth the visit. The food park has a seating capacity of 300+ and they are open 4PM up to 12 midnight everyday, rain or shine! See you there. ❤

  1. I'm really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
