GAYUMA in Sikatuna?

Two nights ago, my younger brother Jericho went home with a flier.  A flier from Gayuma ni Maria, The Lifestyle Restaurant.  I could not believe it at first.  I Asked him: “Is it the same as the one in Esteban Abada, Xavierville?”  My bro said: “Yep, indeed it is.”

So, good news neighbors and fans of Gayuma.  The Lifestyle Restaurant is now along Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village.  25 – 50 meters away from Save More Supermart.

Try their Tuliro, a bed of nachos and lettuce topped with braised beef slivers and a succulently sinful sour cream and cheese dip.

Regulars from the old branch knows their popular cakes such as Pavlova and Better Than Sex (B.T.S.) cakes.  By the way, (B.T.S.) is now known as Beats Sex Anyday (B.S.A.), a rich chocolate mercilessly toppped with butterscotch, cream and chocolate bits.  Some say it should be named Best With Sex.  I don’t think so though.  But, if you’re a sadomasochist and would like to gag with thick chocolate, it’s up to you. lol

Try it out and let me know.

Crave Burger, or Goodburgers?

Good news, neighbors.  Crave Burger is in the hood.  Actually, it’s old news because their cashier said they started operation about a month ago.  I did not have my camera when I passed.  So, I don’t have photos to show.  Anyway, they are open daily from 11:00H – 24:00H.  You can find them at 154 Maginhawa Street, Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.  Here’s their number for more info: 435-4088 / 400-3690.  Should you decide to drop by, try their Crave Ultimate Burger.

As most my friends know, I love burgers.  It is probably one of the reasons why I can’t stay a vegetarian.  Today, I am craving for one, maybe two, belly busting burger.  Eating a vegan burger at 162 Maginhawa, Goodburgers, is an option.  But, do I really like to eat the same “healthy burger” again?  I’m really tempted to give in to my authentic, beef craving.  By the way, should you decide to drop by Goodburgers Maginhawa, try their Margherita or Persian Burger.  Call them at 435-4663 for more details.

So, stick with GOODBURGERS or support the new burger joint in the hood, CRAVE BURGER?  One more thing, I’m searching for the biggest and tastiest burger in the Philippines.  Any suggestions?

Merienda and Surfing at Cafe Quezon

When it is this hot in your neighborhood, or wherever you are, what do you do to stay cool?  Fortunately for me there are air-conditioned restos near my home.  One of them that I recently visited is Cafe Quezon.  It’s located at #179 Maginhawa St., Sikatuna Village, Quezon City.  Their telephone numbers are 928-8534 and +63 920-961-5256.

Music here is very relaxing and food price is reasonable.  I like the fact that they have wifi.  Where, I believe, most restos can’t do without.  My dear friend Ron, I hope you’re reading this. hahaha.  Before you are allowed to use their wifi, your tab must have a minimum amount of 150 bucks.  Nowadays, 150 is a very small amount. 

This is an incomplete  menu, I just want to show you their prices and what they are offering.

Now that’s how the place looks like from the inside.  If you are in Sikatuna or Teacher’s Village, I encourage you to pass by. 

When you have tried out this place, please let me know what your experience was.

Una-Sikat’s ComPares in Sikatuna Village, Quezon City

I’ve been a resident of my community for 3 decades.  More than a decade ago, Una-Sikat opened.  Formerly, it was called Una-Sikat Pares.  Haven’t interviewed the owner, but I think Una-Sikat is Sikatuna manipulated. 

Ate dinner last 7 March 2010 and found out of its new name.  Now It’s called Una-Sikat’s ComPares and here’s what their current signage looks like:

"Paresan at Bulalohan in Sikatuna"

And here’s how it looks like inside.  It’s not airconditioned.  Entrance very open.  Maybe this is their secret to their success.  It somehow makes you feel welcome.

You assumed correctly… with this kind of setup, food prices are definitely cheap.  You can have a decent meal for a hundred bucks.  Here’s what’s written in their menu as of the 7th day of March 2010.  In any resto it’s safe to expect a 5% increase in price yearly due to inflation.


There… If ever you visit Sikatuna Village, drop by this place.  It’s along Anonas Avenue, between Kamias and V.Luna.  Call me and I’ll gladly give you directions.  Jonas 926-7420 or mobile 425-9775 or you may simply call them 924-8887
