Wing Vibe - P. Noval Branch

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Anyone who loves wings will definitely like this place as much as I do. I personally recommend the Garlic Parmesan and Soy Honey, with a side of overload fries that is generously topped with cheese!!! If you are a fan of everything spicy, you should try the Classic Buffalo and Inferno.

Samgyupsalamat - Fusebox UST

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Korean culture has indeed influenced our lifestyle so massively, especially by the way we consume food nowadays. Who doesn't love KBBQ, anyway? There are some Korean Barbecue joints around UST but my favorite is still... Samgyupsalamat! Located at Fusebox Asturias, students literally wait in line for hours to satisfy the samgyupsal craving. I was one of them for so many circumstances.

Tiger Winx

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Wishlist • 

This is another go-to place for those of you who love chicken wings. They offer a variety of flavors so you should try their group meal, where you can order as much as 12 pieces of wings with three different flavors. Their specialty and bestseller is Tiger Winx. It's perfect for your barkada lunch date!

Mang Tootz Food Haus

2 saves

Manila, Philippines • Wishlist • 

My father, also a graduate of UST, used to tell me fond stories of his experiences at Mang Tootz from about two decades ago. It became a part of his college life, as much as it became mine. Nothing comes close to its special banana-rhuma! THE BEST!!!

Cow Wow Sausage Haus

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Wishlist • 

Cow Wow is my go-to whenever I am too lazy to jump off my bed and get out of my dorm room to buy some nice food to eat. They have efficient delivery services and kind people as well. Need not to mention their huge serving of sausages that is great on anytime of the day, whether it be for breakfast or a post-inuman food.

Angkong Dimsum House

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Wishlist • 

Practically what saved my friends and I for almost all days of our college life. Angkong siomai is the best, and I am not lying a bit! Anytime we eat at Angkong surely means having a great mood and a happy tummy the whole day. I remember how this place only started as a kiosk, and now they already have three branches around UST. They offer steamed and fried siomai and dumplings for only 50php! So budget-friendly, right?

Cion's Tapa Station

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Recommendation • 

Formerly Billy's Tapa, this food joint has been another go-to whenever I was rushing to class but too hungry to skip a meal. Cion's Tapa Station never fails with its special and signature tapsilog take-out meals, both the sweet and original. They also offer liempo and adobo which are satisfyingly delicious as well.

Spotlight Restobar

1 save

Manila, Philippines • Wishlist • 

This is probably the place where I learned to binge-drink. Kidding! Spotlight holds so much and a lot of the best and craziest memories of my college life, mostly being their Hello Kitty cocktail tower as the root cause of it all. With the free and unlimited use of videoke, you and your friends would surely have a great, fun night together as much as we all did. Also, their tapsilog is A MUST TRY— believe me!

  • Maria Clara corner Langit Street, Santa Cruz, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
