Laging Handa

On July 28, 1963, United Arab Airlines Flight 869 crashed into sea just a few miles off the coast of India. On board this flight are 20 boy scouts and 4 scoutmasters of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines. Nearly a year after this fateful day, the City Council of Quezon City renamed certain streets after the scouts, allowing their memory to live on.

The streets of Barangay Laging Handa, which took its name from the scouting slogan that meant “Always be prepared,” have been named after 14 of these scouters. It has since become one of the bustling places in the city and a favorite hangout for families and friends.

Sct. Rallos Street, named after Star Scout Romeo Rafael Rallos, is home to the Eighteen Bistro. Featuring continental cuisine and an array of classic and signature cocktails and other drinks, Eighteen Bistro is a spot where good company meets good food.

Try the famous caramel cakes over at Estrel’s, which is located at Sct. Tobias Street corner Sct. Limbaga Street. Find classic Filipino fare at the corner of Sct. Tuason Street and Sct. Doctor Lazcano Street, which is where you’ll find the Romulo Cafe.

American favorites await diners at RUB Ribs & BBQ while the homey ambiance and comfort food of Terrace 45 are ready to welcome those who head their way.
