Exile serves a unique taste of Western food with a Filipino recipe twist. You can hang out with your barkada while enjoying their best-selling ice cream or have a study group sesh. It also features interesting artworks usually from students. Their bookshelves are filled with university art and literary portfolios. When you look up, you'll see a table set glued on the ceiling. Weird? Nope, it's art.
