The Far Eastern University (FEU) is situated in the bustling streets of Manila. It is one of the first universities to implement full face-to-face classes, which means that the ~Green and Gold~ community is finally open for new memories. Now that the much-anticipated onsite classes are back, there will be many chances to reconnect with familiar faces you missed during the two-year pandemic. And what better way to pass the time with your friends in between breaks and vacant hours than to eat? We can all agree that good food is ~*irresistible*~ after a difficult exam or a three-hour-long discussion (I mean, we all deserve it, right?) In light of this, we'll take you on a trip to these five food spots that Tamaraw students keep returning to!
5 Best Food Trip Spots For Tamaraws Around FEU
- Angkong Dimsum House
You can count on a siomai-rice combo to fill you up quickly (especially if you're running late for your next class!). Angkong Dimsum House is the top pick of students for a siomai place because of their affordable but ~quality~ food. They serve a variety of siomai, including their best-sellers: Japanese and Veggies Siomai. A full meal will only cost you at least P70—perfect for students who are on a budget! Best believe that it's not the same as the regular siomai you've had before because it's creamier and tastier. It’s definitely worth a try!
