Pitsjack Banchetto

I read about Pitsjack Banchetto on Facebook and been bothering my friends to try it. So one rainy night, we decided to head out to Marikina to try the Php250 per head unli-everything! Yes, people, everything including drinks (iced tea, blue lemonade or black gulaman).

There are stalls that serve, pasta, mini burgers and sandwiches, goto/lugaw with tokwa’t baboy, Filipino dishes like kare-kare, dinuguan and sinigang, and desserts. Don’t fret, there is also kanin!! There is also unlimited coffee and tea available! And yes, there is a salad bar!

Did I mention that each table comes with its own grill? The helpful staff will set it up for you! You can grillĀ hotdogs, luncheon meat, fish balls, chicken balls, squid balls, pork/beef/chicken barbeque, chicken isaw, gizzard, “betamax”, and a lot more!

Should you wish to drink alcoholic beverages and cocktails with your friends, stalls serving cocktails and beers are also available. For only Php50 per bottle of San Mig Light/San Mig Flavored Beer/Red Horse Stallion, sulit na sulit na. Oh, you can also avail of their 5+1 beer promo! Also, the cocktails are affordable. A liter of cocktail is sold for only Php149!

After eating or while waiting for your food to be cooked/grilled, there is a billiard table and KTV room for you. For Php100 per hour on both billiard table and KTV room, saan ka pa?


I just realized that I do not have photos of the billiard area and the KTV room. Eto lang ang groufie namin. šŸ™‚

Juez Cafe

Last Friday, my business partner and I went to Quezon City Hall for an errand at the Department of Justice Building. The person we were supposed to meet was still on lunch break, so we decided to look for a cafeteria so we can also have our lunch. We entered a cafeteria (where I think the QC Hall employees usually have their meals) but unfortunately, there were no longer available lunch food for us. The lady in her apron advised us to try the one cafe upstairs.

Lo and behold! The ambiance is different from that of the one downstairs. We were surprised to see a charming coffee shop named Juez Cafe (juez is a spanish word for a judge). We thought that the prices were a bit expensive, but we were wrong. The meals are reasonably priced, and the ambiance is great.

Sharing with you some of the photos I took during our short lunch at Juez Cafe:


Stairs leading to Juez Cafe.




Might not be a good view, but c’mon!

We only had at most 30 minutes spare time, and we’re a bit worried about the serving time. But the crew didn’t disappoint as well. Our food was served in a matter of few minutes.


Juez Cafe counter. They sell cakes, coffees, frappes, pasta, sandwiches and even breakfast favorites.

We ordered aglio olio pasta, carbonara, ham and cheese sandwich, and strawberry milkshake. I liked their pasta. Everything was perfect, well, at least for me. Haha! I just didn’t like their ham and cheese sandwich. It was so plain. I wished it had lettuce and tomatoes. Sadly, it was just literally ham and cheese sandwich.


Juez Cafe serves good pasta.



The epic sandwich. I wasn’t even able to take a good shot.

So if you’re wondering about the bookshelf in the first photo, I’ll give you a glimpse on the available books.

Because it ain’t Juez Cafe without the books about law, right?

So there! The next time your feet take you to Quezon City Hall, and you need a place to breathe and chill for a bit, you now know a place!
