western portion of Quezen City in the Philippines

The western parts of Quezon City is mostly a suburban residential area lying west of the Scout Area, along Quezon Avenue. While this is mostly dismissed as part of the city's sprawling environment, it does have spots worth visiting such as the Chinatown around Banawe Street, the lechon (roast pig) restaurants of La Loma, and the haunted Balete Road.
