Banawe Food Guide: 12 Restaurants to Try Out When in Banawe

6. Meat Depot 

Location: 815 Banawe St., Quezon City



Meat Depot is actually a butcher shop where you can get quality meat products. But above the butchery is a restaurant where you can choose your own meat and have it cooked for you. You just choose your meat (Php 100.00 to Php 1,000.00, depending on the type of meat) from the chiller, and fill out the order slip where you can choose the doneness of the meat and the sauces and sides you want! You just have to pay Php 100.00 cooking fee and you’re bound to eat quality grilled meat.

5. Wild Indigo

Location: 100 Banawe St., Cor. NS Amoranto St., Quezon City


Wild Indigo’s Dirty Charcoal Bowl (Php 180.00)

Relatively new to the Banawe food scene, Wild Indigo is an up and coming restaurant known for its artsy and Instagrammable interior. The restaurant has, almost literally, all the food you can think of⁠—from all day breakfast, salads, pastas, burgers, chicken wings, Filipino food, Japanese bentos, Korean bowls, ramen pots, to frappes, milk teas, fruit teas, fruit sodas, cakes, coffee, smoothie bowls AND cocktails—it’s insane! Don’t miss out on their Dirty Charcoal Bowl (Php 180.00), which is a healthier and less guilty alternative to ice cream.

With this Taiwanese restaurant’s karinderiya-style setting, it’s really more than meets the eye. Though the restaurant may not be as Instagrammable as the previous one on this list, their food’s quality will surely make up for it! You can either order pre-cooked food from the karinderiya, or you can also order noodle soup from their menu!

Situated in one of the most underrated food spots in Quezon City is a quality Japanese restaurant—Oedo! You can have your favorite Japanese dishes from donburi bowls, curry, teppanyaki, skewers, sushi, maki, and so much more. Some of their most recommended dishes include the Gyu Teppanyaki (Php 345.00), Ebi Tempura (Php 350.00), and the Oedo Maki (Php 300.00). If you’re looking for quality Japanese cuisine around the area, be sure to check this place out!

2. Royal Tea

Location: 112 Sto. Domingo St., Quezon City


Royal Tea’s Very Strawberry Cheezo (Php 180.00)

Also fairly new to the Banawe food scene is Royal Tea. What sets Royal Tea apart from its other tea brand counterparts is that this one has more unique and uncommon drink concoctions, such as their smoothie cheezo line, which reminded me of the fruit tea with cheese cap I used to have back in Hong Kong. Our favorite was the Very Strawberry Cheezo (Php 180.00), which is tea infused with real strawberry juice and bits, topped with a layer of cream cheese!

1. Big Boy’s Diner

Location: 128 Sto. Domingo St., Quezon City

Known for its retro and vintage-inspired interiors, this small diner in Quezon City will transport you into the set of Riverdale. Serving mostly American comfort food, one of their best-sellers is the Big Boy’s Burger (Php 200.00), where you can pair it either with fries or onion rings. Be sure to pair your full-meal with a Strawberry Milkshake (Php 150.00), too. Make sure to take photos in the restaurant as every corner is surely aesthetic and Instagram-worthy!
