I and my high school buddies planned a night out over the weekend. We have decided to try out Maginhawa Street, a popular go-to food place for most people, particularly students from UP since the place is just a few blocks away from the campus. Unfamiliar with what is good in Maginahwa Street, I dared to just walk from end to end of the long food street to make the most out of the trip . . . not knowing that someone among us has already got a car, yey!

So, since we have started the ride at 6pm, we chose to get our dinner at Gerry's Jeepney, located at 7 B Maginhawa Street, UP Village, Quezon City. 

The place boasts a Pinoy concept, given in its store name, as dining areas occupy the insides of jeepneys. The jeepneys are not the actual vehicles you see on the road that are converted to serve diners, though, they are just made out of wood! 

We arrived at around 8-ish, and there was already a queue of diners waiting to be served. We got our turn at 9:15pm. We were served the AYALA menu: a good for 3-4 persons set of Jeepney rice (mixed rice), roasted pork slices, ensaladang talong, friend shrimps, salted egg, a whole roasted fish (we chose bangus) inclusive of condiments KBL (kamatis, bawang, luya), chilis and minced onions and 4 glasses of iced tea and complimentary drinking water. We added pork sinigang, not knowing that soup will also be provided. We have placed our order at least 15minutes before we were able to seat in, thus we don't need to wait too long for the food to arrive.
Gerry's Jeepney has five jeepney-inspired dining areas

The food of the entire set is prepared on a banana leaves-covered wooden platform 
the size of the serving table.

The set lived up to its promise of the meal being "good for 3-4 persons" as we ended up full and burping afterward.
