From authentic Asian dining to some Filipino classics, it’s time to find your way in Banawe!
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.
