In the Philippines, banderitas plastered all over a place signifies a feast but in Gerry’s Jeepney, everyday seems to be just like that.
This restaurant cradled in foodie paradise, Maginhawa Street, offers an ambiance thriving with Filipino details in every corner: all original Pinoy music playing continuously, waiters greeting you with a smile, driver joke signages plastered on the wall, and a number of jeepneys, all lined up, inviting you to get inside and eat.
Their one of a kind menu aptly named as Alabang, Quiapo, Ayala, and Monumento, will bring you exciting Filipino dishes such as grilled liempo, grilled fish, binagoongan, ensaladang talong, chicken BBQ, Pinakbet, Kangkong, Kinilaw, and chicken ass, among others, all served on a fresh banana leaf.
Since its birth in 2013, the restaurant is already attracting locals and foreigners alike to have a taste of the world famous Filipino food.
As for the balikbayans however, it is a different case. To those who spend countless of sleepless nights overseas, tossing and turning, dreaming of being with their families back home or merely craving to taste that piping hot and sour sinigang soup offered for free in carinderias, Gerry’s Jeepney is the perfect place to be. It is a perfect reminder of home.
