As tomato kick says goodbye, its loyal patrons want to give back

May 7, 2021 0 comments


The address 55 Maginhawa Street, or even 19 Malingap Street, may not ring a bell for some of you reading this. But for the residents of the area, for those who frequent that famed foodie street in Quezon City, and for the students, faculty, and staff (past and present) of UP, Ateneo, Miriam, and other nearby schools, those addresses bring one beloved bar in mind: Tomato Kick.


To say that Tomato Kick is a Maginhawa icon is too much of an understatement. It’s been the venue of org events, barkada reunions, countless crying sessions brought about by a myriad of reasons, after school and after work drinks, and so on. It’s so iconic that you’d think it’d be there forever.

But the coronavirus came in like a wrecking ball no one saw coming, badly hitting the local restaurant and bar scene. We’ve said goodbye to one too many restaurants, bars, clubs, and the like the past year, but the pandemic isn’t done yet. Now, it has claimed yet another casualty in the local food scene. Maginhawa icon Tomato Kick is no more.


But just as Tomato Kick has been a part of the highs and the lows of the stories of its faithful patrons, these same people are working to give their beloved TK the finale it deserves.

Giving back to those who served


post by Faya Villar Dela Concepcion has been making its rounds in Facebook since the early evening of May 7. In it are the details of what she referred to as TK Last Order, a donation drive for the benefit of TK employees. 


“We’re not saying goodbye without giving thanks to the people who served us throughout these years,” the post reads. 


How to help


There are a couple of ways you can participate in this donation drive. First, from May 7 to 22, you can donate to the online fundraiser. A QR code for donations has been provided on the Facebook post so you can easily give your donations.
