Box Park Congressional Avenue

Quezon City is home to food parks.  I’m sure many of you have tried the outlets in Z Compound as well as in Maginhawa StrEAT.  Both are located in the vicinity of the “eat street” more popularly known as Maginhawa Street.

As much as I enjoy long drives and exploring different cities and trying out their food, there are times I just want to stay home and avoid the terrible Manila traffic.  But I hate to cook.  I’m lazy most of the time.  That’s why I was ecstatic to find out that there was a new food park just near our place. So I made a mental note to visit Box Park along Congressional Avenue Extension one of these days.

I love discovering food by chance.  Of course, I also do research before I eat at restaurants but there are times when I want to be surprised.  So without knowing anything, we trooped to the Box Park.  It was already past dinnertime when we got there.  Straight out, parking was a problem.  Just like in Maginhawa Street, you have to park on the road.  But compared to Maginhawa, Congressional Avenue is less savory safety-wise.  The road is dark and traffic is busy.  It’s a main highway and all sorts of vehicle use this road.  So one advise, be there early.  I think it opens around 5pm.

One good point, service is fast.  And it’s table service all the way.  You can order from any stall and food comes to you no matter where you’re seated. There are many choices.  The first time we visited, we didn’t have any cravings or what.  We were open to anything.   Even if you’re a picky eater, Box Park may have a thing or two for your picky taste buds.  Here’s the list of food stalls:

Thai Food

Angel Treats



Baste & Taste

Box Park 101

Taqueria MNL

Ozawa Noritako

Mr. Diggins Waffle & Ice Cream

Colonel’s Franks

The Pie Guys
