We’ve been frequenting Maginhawa St. in Quezon City the past week. We’ve had two dinners, one with sis at Griddle and the other one with my ILs (peanutbutter♥‘s parents and aunt) at Gerry’s Jeepney (this I’m gonna tell you all about at www.thepeachkitchen.com).
Last Saturday, we decided to make a turn and have dinner at Pino Restobar in Malingap St.
Pino Restobar is a restaurant that serves delicious Filipino food, beside it is Pipino, a vegetarian restaurant. You can order from both menus when you dine in. The first on my hand was Pipino’s menu and thought about ordering a vegetarian fare thinking about trying to be healthy for a change. But I changed my mind when I saw Pino’s menu and ordered a Tuna Shiitake Pasta instead — still healthy but not vegetarian.
I don’t think I could be a vegetarian — I love my meat too much!
Our other orders were Nori Cheese Sticks for appetizer, which they served drizzled with pesto and a sweet red sauce which seemed like strawberry sauce. Ykaie had Chicharong Bulaklak and rice, peanutbutter♥ had Bagnet Ribs Lechon Paksiw, and sis had Seafood Aligue Pasta .
Our dinner ended with a slice of the Tablea Cheesecake which we all shared.
It was such a lovely night! Dinner with my favorite people! Twinkle was such an angel too and slept throughout the night eventhough it was quite noisy at the restaurant.
I was suggesting we do a Maginhawa St. Project…. they didn’t think we could do it. It’s either we end up broke or wih extra 50 pounds by the end of the month.

I always pass by Malingap St. when I bring the twins to school, but I never had a chance to dine there. After this post, I must try their food.

The little one seems to enjoy the ambance in that restaurant. I will keep this place in mind.

I see many posts about the eateries found in Maginhawa St. and have yet to visit it. I always find myself dining somewhere else when we live nearby. I must keep this in mind the next vacay back home. I want to try out the restaurants and other food outlets you feature here.

It looks like the family is having a blast. The baby girl is getting so big. The food makes me hungry.
I’m literally craving for all the Filipino foods you mentioned. I feel like going out tonight and look for a decent restaurant to serve those. But, probably I’ll just head to my kitchen and see what I can cook for my small family.
