QUEZON City is a big city kaya maraming lugar na pasyalan at kainan ditto. But when it comes to food trip, one of the most visited areas is the Maginhawa street. Dinadayo ito not only by QC folks but also by foodies from different parts of Metro Manila.

Mahirap puntahan? Not really.

Madaming jeep at bus na dumadaan sa kahabaan ng Commonwealth avenue. Bababa ka lang sa Philcoa at ang unang kanto ay ang Masaya Street at susundan na ito ng Maginhawa.

Mahaba ang Maginhawa street and it would be better na alam mo na ang mga pupuntahan mo bago pa sumugod ditto.
