Cafe Maria Jerica, 24×7 Restaurant in Cubao Quezon City

This has got to be my favorite hangout place in my neighborhood Cubao! Sobrang chill ng place and homey. Very very Cubao ang ambiance – busy, accessible, magulo, maingay, vibrant, masaya!


A good place to hang out with your family and friends.


Actually, hindi ko din ma-gets ang theme eh but I guess it is what it is – complicated. HAHA


I like it that they have al fresco dining! Iba yun feeling na nag b-burger kayo tapos may dumadaang tricycle. Iba! Heads up, limited parking. Kahit anong request nyo sa management, hindi yata magagawan ng solusyon yan. Pwede mag park sa SM, Sparks or Alimall tapos mag tricycle na lang kayo papunta sa Jerica.


Iba-iba talaga ang motiff!


Walang aircon pero okay lang.


What’s good about this cafe is its AFFORDABILITY and HUGE SERVING.


Nasa Php 110 lang ‘to! Ang dami-dami nila.


Seriously, ilang cafe/restaurant sa Pilipinas ang nag ooffer ng 100% natural mustard? LOL


For 2-3 sharing, only 120. Not bad.


It’s not the best, not that bad either. Sakto lang sa presyo nya.


Php 50 each, Cucumber Lemon. Sulit to!


Pork Tonkatsu, masarap yun sauce! If you’re craving for american, italian and japanese food, this should be your go-to place. Sobrang daming choices ang hirap-hirap umorder!


All for only Php 420!

Affordable, huge serving, free delivery within Cubao area and open 24 hrs! These are the reasons why I loveee Cafe Maria Jerica!

Cafe Maria Jerica is located in 14th Ave, Cubao, Quezon City, just 1 tricyle ride from SM Cubao or AliMall.

Saying Goodbye and Moving On (A Breakup Story)

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
– George Bernard Shaw

Major major changes happening very soon! I am finally saying goodbye and breaking up with my dearly beloved most precious neighborhood. We’re moving back to the place of my many happy memories – my hometown far down north…hello again Valenzuela City! I am half-excited, half-heartbroken.

Super excited for these things:

  • Family (all my cousins live there) – it means more family reunions, kwentuhans.
  • Lower cost – roughly 30% cheaper
  • New house – anything new excites me!

Super heartbroken for these reasons:

  • Giving up the convenience – access to Edsa, Araneta, Farmers, Ali Mall, Bus Terminal, Estwood, Ortigas etc.
  • Neighborhood – it’s nice and quiet where we live.
  • It’s Cubao! Eto yata ang totoong Central Luzon. Haha. It has access to all points of Luzon!
  • Camp Crame – anybody who lives nearby can get inside to jog, bike etc.
  • 100% flood free. Moving to Valenzuela means I have to go through deep floods despite having light rain only.
  • Garbage truck every Monday and Wednesday. Free.
  • Mang Joey’s and Jerica
  • My favorite Hypermarket in Main Ave. Edsa – deserves to be singled out because honestly, it’s the best Hypermarket ever!

Turns out I have more things to be heartbroken for than to be happy, but it’s alright.

We have not started packing yet. It’s only me and my sister sharing the house but our stuff when combined, it looks like it’s for a family of 12. Maybe even more than that. Help!!!

My biggest and major worry you know what..it’s the travel time I need to take when going to Makati. That’s a total of 6-8hrs, back and forth, on a regular sunny day. When it rains, even with the slightest drizzle, it extends to 10hrs or longer.

Ciao, Cubao! Thank you for the many happy years! Thank you also to Bongato family. We’ll never forget your kindness.
