Quezon Memorial Circle

5.0 Stars
Park
10

The Quezon Memorial Circle is tucked inside the large 2-km roundabout known as the Elliptical Road. The park itself is surrounded by 15.65 hectares of green space and features a number of garden supply & flower shops, restaurants, as well as facilities which can be used for conferences, sport events or a simple meeting place.

Besides these, there are several other activities perfect for everyone. The QMC has an amusement park called Circle of Fun, a Bicycle Station, a zipline as well as a Fitness Trail. BUT if you want to experience a relaxing day filled with discovery, you can explore the museums inside the park one of which is the Quezon Memorial Shrine.

The shrine is a 66-metre (217 ft) tall mausoleum dedicated to former Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon. Inside the Quezon Memorial Shrine is a museum which contains relics and memorabilia related to former President Manuel Quezon. Moreover, at the center of the building is interred remains of Manuel L. Quezon and his wife, Aurora Quezon.

QCX

5.0 Stars
Museum

The QCX: Quezon City Experience is the first socio-cultural interactive museum that showcases a city’s history, transformation as well as the great future. What makes QCX great is the opportunity it gives the visitors.

They are free to interact with the displays and allow them to take picture (videos not allowed). And since there are 16 interactive galleries, each group is given a tour guide. All the guides are friendly and well-informed so don’t be afraid to ask them anything about the city’s history and culture.

Landers Central

4.0 Stars
Pizza

If you’re really hungry or up for just a quick bite after grocery shopping, Landers Central is perfect. They offer some delicious U.S. Angus Beef Burger, All-American hotdog, N.Y Cheese Deluxe pizza as well as Roast Chicken and Truffle Cream Pasta with Grilled Chicken pasta.

We were able to try the U.S. Famous Beef Hotdog Combo Platter, a slice of Manhattan Supreme wheat pizza and the Pasta Marinara with Meatballs.

The U.S. Famous Beef Hotdog Combo Platter is a great choice. It’s simple but packed with goodness. We’re looking forward the Salisbury Turkey Franks. The slice of Manhattan Supreme wheat pizza is surprisingly okay, too. They didn’t have the “normal” pizza so we settled with the wheat one instead. It was a good choice.

The only thing we disliked though was the Pasta Marinara with Meatballs. The pasta was reheat and there was a lot of moisture in the container. That liquid went directly to the sauce loosing its original taste. The meatballs were good so we just assumed the pasta would have been good.

If you don’t like to eat heavy, fret not as they have a cafe called Doppio. Here they serve ice cream with a variety of interesting flavors, delicious cakes and coffee! Caffeine lovers will surely enjoy cafe Doppio’s offerings. Whether you like it hot or cold, they definitely have something perfect for your taste buds.

We tried their Iced Latte Hazelnut which we partnered with a slice of N.Y Cheesecake. It was divine. Oh, by the way! If you’re a cheesecake lover or just want to try The Cheesecake Factory’s dreamy cheesecakes, Landers Superstore is selling them. Just head to the ice cream and dairy section. Yes, they’re quite steep – well because it’s THE Cheesecake Factory. BUT they do offer slices at cafe Doppio. It’s way cheaper than buying a whole cheesecake.

Tony's Bar & Grill is an okay place. They have an outdoor dining as well as an indoor dining which is well-ventilated. When it comes to food, Tony's Bar & Grill offers delicious Filipino dishes which are priced reasonably.

My family and I went there for a quick lunch. Though we ordered simple dishes, we enjoyed every bite. Also if you're bringing a car, no worries because they have a parking space and a security guard.

Emnace's Grill

3.0 Stars

Emnace’s Grill was established in 2008. It was just a small takeout joint back then and they only served a few round-the-clock meals as well as pansit and their famous pork barbecues. As years passed, the small takeout joint was transformed into a restaurant to better serve their growing number of customers.

When they were still located at 84 Congressional Ave. cor. Hereford St, my family and I were able to dine there. It was pretty difficult, to be honest because Emnace’s Grill is almost always full. So when they transferred to a bigger space (116 Congressional Avenue), it was a bit easier now. Besides a bigger space, they now also have a parking space.

Now for the food and service. They offer Selfie Value Meal with Unlimited Rice, Groufie Value Meal, Gud AM Meals, and a variety of Sisig, Steak, Chicken, Pork, Fish,Veggies, Pansit and Burger choices. I can say that the food is okay but you just have to be careful what you order. For example, their BBQsilog and Tapsilog are tough to chew. The Fish Fillet Strips were also disappointing. On the other hand, their Chopuey, chicken, Pork BBQ, and fish (Tilapia and Bangus) are good. Regarding their service, the waiters are very attentive and accommodating.

Would I go back to Emnace’s Grill? I definitely will once in a while. The place is clean and they do have some delicious dishes to offer; not to mention, a snack/ pasalubong corner. They have yema, peanuts, cookies, brownies, leche flans, sylvannas and more.

New City Food House

Looking for a quick bite or a lovely meal that will give value for money? Then visit New City Food House along Kalayaan Avenue right beside Liberty Hotel. Good food at an affordable price is what they are all about!

New City Food House is a simple eatery. Though their place is small and quite dim, they have a designated outdoor and air-conditioned dining area. The place also has a good number of wait staff and kitchen staff so ordering and waiting won’t be a problem. In fact, my family and I have dined at New City Food House countless times. Whether it’s lunch or dinner where the place can get crowded, we did not wait that long for our food to be served.

For the food, we have tried Egg Puyong, Torta Crabmeat and other dishes such as Broccoli with Oyster Sauce, Buttered Chicken, Sweet & Sour Pork, Cream of Asparagu, Hototay and Nido with Quail Eggs. These dishes are indeed simple but they don’t skimp on flavors!

Pedro N’ Coi

3.0 Stars

What attracted me to Pedro 'N Coi? Besides serving a variety of Filipino dishes, their theme is just so amazing. It reminds me (well, everyone for sure) of all the Filipino sitcoms I grew up watching. It's really festive and it's fun to dine at the “jeepney” area.

The only problem is the dishes. It turned out the only thing great about their food are the names – Anak ng Tokwa, Mayor Bistek, Wow Mami, and Joey De Lechon to name a few. The only one I enjoyed was Pi-Pinoy's Lemonada. I really do like the concept and all so I'll be visiting their other branches for comparison.
