15 Restaurant Finds in Banawe Worth Visiting


Don’t leave this page without scrolling down to the last.

For residents of Banawe and Quezon City in general, most of these places are all too familiar, but that familiar (and same comforting) feeling is also what keeps these places swarmed by regulars. The Banawe area is a relatively quieter neighborhood with more family-style restaurants than night bars to hang out in. In short, it’s silent but deadly to the belly.

In this list, we focused more on the smaller restaurants as well as  some hip new cafes and steak diners that most foodies from other cities probably haven’t heard of. If you love finding holes-in-the-wall, then you’re guaranteed to enjoy completing this list!

For people who find Quezon City foreign, it is the biggest city of the greater Metro, and is an open treasure trove waiting to be explored and taken. Aside from Banawe, you can also wander off to Tomas Morato, UP Town Center, KatipunanMaginhawa, and the new StrEAT: Maginhawa Food Park.
