#SulEAT | Our Maginhawa food adventure starts at BRAZO

For my 2014 pre-birthday celebration, we had restaurant hopping at Maginhawa Street in Quezon City. After our devotional prayer for our exams at the Iglesia Ni Cristo Central Temple, we went to Maginhawa Street to try Antiteasis: Books and Brews (since we love tea specially milk tea). Then, I realized the place is close on Mondays. We decided to look for another restaurant.

The Maginhawa Street is fast becoming known as a trendy home of of culinary delights. It attracts young people, being close to the University of the Philippines, but is steadily becoming known as a place to hang out and dine.
Maginhawa is a Filipino term which means ‘easy and convenient’
This is our first Maginhawa trip and I promise you to visit and write a review on the dining places located in the street.
BRAZO is a newly-opened comfort food spot. The place is previously occupied by Henry’s Grille. It gives its customers two dining options. You can either dine al fresco or inside an airconditioned room. I love its simple but elegant interior design.
