Rodic’s Diner in the UP Shopping Center
If a restaurant never runs out of customers even after more than 50 years, then there’s definitely something special about it that makes people keep coming back. The tapsilog is arguably its most popular dish, and for a good reason!
Their Facebook page boasted of what sets their tapsilog apart:
“Rodic’s is perhaps the first to offer the tapsilog in an entirely different way. Instead of the typical fried tapa or cured pork, Rodics added its own signature twist to the dish, serving the tapa shredded and served in a mound of fried rice topped with an egg cooked sunny-side up.”
The tapsilog is best consumed
drizzled drowned in a very generous helping of vinegar.
Mashitta in the UP Shopping Center
Most restaurants in the campus serve Filipino food. But if you catch yourself craving for Korean and Japanese food on a budget, try Mashitta’s bibimbap and their rolls.
