West

Ever wondered how West Avenue got its name?

There once was a proposal to build a new capital for the Philippines during the time of President Manuel Quezon. The government then purchased what was called the Diliman Estate, which included the 493 hectares of land that was reserved for the University of the Philippines campus. Four main roads bordered this estate at the cardinal directions. The one that bordered the Diliman Estate on the left side is now known as West Avenue.

While plans for building a new capital for the country didn’t push through, the area continues to be one of the busiest, most commercialized in Quezon City, bringing in thousands of people each day. West Avenue, like the three other cardinal roads, has become a long stretch of dining and leisure options for those in the area.

Middle Eastern fare takes the spotlight at Mister Kabab. Try their Kabab Sandwich, which comes in different varieties including beef and chicken. Warm up during the rainy days and enjoy a bowl of ramen over at Ramen Cool. Craving for Chinese? Kowloon House and Hap Chan are there to satisfy it.

West Avenue’s close proximity to schools and office areas make it a go-to place for students and members of the workforce looking for a quiet, relaxed place to work in. Well-established brand Starbucks Coffee joins Coffee Empire, Coffee Belle, and The Coffee Room on the list of coffee shop options in the area.

Can’t decide where and what to eat? Go to a buffet instead! The eat-all-you-can triumvirate of Dad’s, Kamayan, and Saisaki can be found at West Avenue, just above Sambo Kojin, a buffet that specializes in Japanese and Korean cuisine.
