Nothing can make these two more excited than dressing up and getting ready to go out with Lolo and Lola. This time we were off to check out one of the venues for our nephew Bradzen’s first birthday next month and then we were off to lunch at Gerry’s Jeepney in Maginhawa.
Yes, this post was supposedly for September but you know me, I can’t keep up with my blog these days so I’m a bit late in posting and Twinkle is still three months old here.
We ended up having lunch somewhere so we decided to drop by Gerry’s Jeepney for early dinner instead. There was already a long line of people when we arrived at around 5:30 pm.
Initially, we wanted a table inside one of those dressed-up jeepneys but seeing how long the waiting line is and how hot it was al fresco, we changed our minds. We opted for a table inside where there’s a/c.Besides we have a three month old with us and we could imagine how irritable she would be once she felt how hot it was outside.
peanutbutter♥ (who goes by the name DaddyDoodleDoo these days), Ykaie, and Twinkle just had a photo opp by the jeepney tables right before we ate.
Guess what’s for dinner?
Gerry’s Jeepney is known for their Boodle Set Menu named after places you’ll most likely see on jeepney placards. They have Quiapo, Cubao, Ayala, Monumento, and Alabang. It’s generally good for 2- 8 persons depending on which set you’d choose. Prices ranges from ₱650 to ₱1,600.
We didn’t have that though, and chose from the Additional Orders menu.
We had Ensaladang Talong with Itlog na Pula (₱75) as a sidedish. I personally love this because of the bagoong isda (fish paste) with onions and tomato. I can actually just have this plus steamed rice and I’d be a happy camper.
Of course that’s not all that we had, we also ordered my favorite Pork Sisig (₱175). Gerry’s Jeppney’s version had a bit of crunch into it and that rich flavorful taste I am always looking for when it comes to sisig. Yum!
Hmmmmnn, now that I’ve thought about it. All those that we ordered were my favorites! The Binagoongang Lechon Kawali with Pritong Talong (₱180) rates five stars for me. I also make Binagoongang Baboy the same way as Gerry’s Jeepney makes them — the kind that makes you want to eat one pot of rice!
Ykaie ordered Inihaw na Liempo (₱150), what else? It was nice that the serving is big and the liempo is freshly and perfectly grilled.
Because of all those pork dishes, we had to have vegetables so we ordered their Gising-Gising topped with Crispy Dilis (₱90). Instead of sitaw or green beans that I am accustomed to, their version is made up of Kangkong stalks that have been chopped into tiny pieces. I love my Gising-Gising rich and creamy and it’s the one thing that this needs to improve on.
We had a great experience at Gerry’s Jeepney. The staff were attentive to our needs and the food is okay.
Gerry’s Jeepney is located at #7 Maginhawa St., UP Village, Quezon City.
