WHERE IN METRO MANILA: Our Maginhawa food adventure starts at BRAZO


For my 2014 pre-birthday celebration, we had restaurant hopping at Maginhawa Street in Quezon City. After our devotional prayer for our exams at the Iglesia Ni Cristo Central Temple, we went to Maginhawa Street to try Antiteasis: Books and Brews (since we love tea specially milk tea). Then, I realized the place is close on Mondays. We decided to look for another restaurant.

The Maginhawa Street is fast becoming known as a trendy home of of culinary delights. It attracts young people, being close to the University of the Philippines, but is steadily becoming known as a place to hang out and dine.

Maginhawa is a Filipino term which means 'easy and convenient'

This is our first Maginhawa trip and I promise you to visit and write a review on the dining places located in the street.

BRAZO is a newly-opened comfort food spot. The place is previously occupied by Henry’s Grille. It gives its customers two dining options. You can either dine al fresco or inside an airconditioned room. I love its simple but elegant interior design.

Let's take a look at their menu.

BRAZO has an All Day Breakfast Menu. Adobo Flakes (P156) is a chicken and pork adobo toasted, sunny side up with your choice of rice or pandesal. Like Adobo Flakes, you may choose rice or pandesal for your Cabanatuan Longganisa (P153) with sunny side up. Brazo's Corned Beef  (P230) is a thick cut homemade beef brisket, served with egg and hollandaise sauce with pandesal or rice. Heaven-Sent (P198) has scrambled eggs and buttery bread, served with sauteed mushroom and baby potatoes. Their Stack O' Pancakes have variants.

They offer House Pizza and 4 Cheese Pizza at P296. At P206, you can have your Pomelo and Smoked Fish Salad, Melon and Feta Salad and Caesar Salad. Choose the spice level of your Glazed Buffalo Chicken Wings (P186) and try Brazo Burger (P209), a 100% beef patty with cheddar and bacon on potato buns and potato fries.

We tried Callos (P188), an ox tripe in tomato sauce with olives chorizo, and Iberian Chicken (Half-P238; Whole-P406).

Sinigang na Corned Beef (P263), Mango Glazed Pork with Mango Salsa (P198) and Chicken Cordon Bleu (P248) are must-try dishes.
