Maginhawa Street's Gerry's Jeepney

Maginhawa Street in Quezon City is a popular place for foodies because it's an entire street lined up with various cafes and restaurants. Last week, during the long weekend, I finally got to visit the place with some of my friends from ONE LOVE. I love get togethers with those peeps!



I want to tell you all about Gerry's Jeepney, the place where we met and had dinner in. The restaurant serves Filipino food - good food though it's not the food per se that would make you remember the place. 

What then you ask? Well, for one thing, when you dine at Gerry's Jeepney, you better be prepared to...BOODLE FIGHT! 



Urban Dictionary defines this as "a military style of eating where long tables are prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice ready to eat using your bare hands, jugs of water are prepared on the side to wash hands before the "eating combat". With the signal to start the boodle fight, everyone aims for his/her position." 



As you can see from our photos above, the food were served on top of banana leaves. The true blue  boodle fight eating style is using one's hands but we didn't. Buti narin because I don't know how! 

The second better reason this restaurant is worth blogging about is because it has an interesting theme - the Jeepney, the Philippines' iconic public vehicle and undisputed King of the Road. All the decors in the place speaks of the jeepney. 


The menu
Since there was 5 of us, we ordered the Monumento group meal

The table top decor




And the wall decors filled with signage you'd normally find inside a jeepney










Such a cute place Gerry's Jeepney was. I definitely want to come back and explore the other resto places in the area.
