Maginhawa Strip!

Kyusi is home to the best and most affordable restos!

For a foodie like me, searching for restaurants and food establishments can really be so much fun.

Maginhawa St. is one place that captured my tummy. πŸ™‚

BLACKSOUP CAFE+ART SPACE

It’s partly owned by Kuya Bodjie (from Batibot) and their menu consists of pasta, rice, sandwiches and desserts.
Sometimes, they do show some classic films here. Perfect for chillaxing.

VAN GOGH IS BIPOLAR

When we went here, we didn’t know that we have to make reservations. But luck was on our side, we were able to get a table for two! Thanks to Jethro, the owner. πŸ™‚

Trivia: Jethro is a medically diagnosed Bipolar. Van Gogh is a bipolar too. All the food served here are basically for bipolar people which is interesting because on their menu, it is explained there the advantages of the food elements (mostly, mood enhancing).

blospost from blogspot: Jan 2010

I always appreciate Art and Food. When these two come together, amazing things happen.
And there’s Van Gogh is Bipolar. (Hmmm, is he really bipolar?)

Van Gogh is Bipolar is located at #154 Maginhawa St., Sikatuna Village. It’s actually an apartment-like place. (Black Soup is also in the same address)

A art gallery + cafe =SUPERB!

Reservations are done a week before. (We’re just so lucky that night. We didn’t have any reservations)

Upon entering the restaurant, you will be greeted by the owner, Jethro and you’ll be asked to read the house rules first. (Shoes must be removed when you enter the resto)

The house rules were very nakakaaliw! πŸ™‚

The content of the menu’s not too much but were all very interesting.(We will try Godfather II next time)

Since we ate dinner already, we decided to just try Mel Gibson’s Darkest Sin.

One of the rules is to write your order on a piece of paper. (Don’t worry, they’ll provide you a pen and a paper)

I am very impressed with the interiors!!! suuper ARTSY talaga!!! πŸ™‚

You can even choose a teapot when you order some hot tea. :))

The resto’s a bit small that it can fit about 15 people only.

I’m considering this as one of Maginhawa’s best!!!

And i’m probably going back here!!!

Van Gogh Is Bipolar is located at: 154 Unit H, Maginhawa Bldg., Maginhawa St. Sikatuna Village, QC

This is the old Pino Bar in Maginhawa St. (they are now relocated to Malingap St.)

This is also one of the nicest chill-out places in QC.

BRGR: THE BURGER PROJECT
This is where the old Pino Bar is located.
What I love about this burger joint is that you can make your own burger. Their menuΒ  is a checklist of what you want for your burger. *how i love personalized stuff* πŸ™‚

Here’s their menu:
