Food Park in QC: Grub Hub

My friends and I was able to visit and try out Grub Hub. Grub Hub is the hippest and trippiest food park in the metro. They’ve got various food stalls to choose from and an instagrammable ambiance perfect for you!

Grub Hub is a 1,600-sqm food park that is divided into three dining areas- Junkyard, Greenhouse, and Hippieyard. Everything that you will see in the Junkyard is recycled, from the chandelier to the tables and chairs. The chairs are made of used tires and are very comfortable to sit in and the tables are made of used wheels and wood that were hand painted by the students of University of the Philippines who made the murals in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
