Exploring a 493-hectare university can be quite daunting (and for sure exhausting) but take it as a challenge; getting lost around campus might just take you to your next great food discovery.


We have created the perfect food crawl game plan so that you can conquer iconic UP food stops without breaking the bank!

Start by filling up your energy meter with the sugar rush-inducing Pandan Tea by Arki Vickie. This saccharine drink is a must-try when in UP because you certainly won't find it elsewhere. Make sure you also try their special siomai (it comes with a surprise center) because it is the perfect partner to their Pantea! You can find Ate Vickie's stall near the College of Architecture.

Get off to a good start by ticking off one of the most iconic stops on campus. Their famous isaw is one of the most budget-friendly finds out thereyou can get a stick for only P5! You won't have a hard time finding this gem because the whiff of barbecue will lead you to it. The long lines can also confirm that you're in the right place!

  1. Iskomai + Iskorambol (P55)

This combo is a personal favorite among many iskos and iskas who flock the food strip, Area 2. Nothing compares to a hearty serving of siomai over steaming hot rice followed by sweet pink ice scramble topped with lots of milk powder. For only P55 you can satisfy your dim sum craving as well as your sweet tooth! It might seem like an unusual pairing but don't knock it 'til you try it.

Make sure you check out what's grilling on the other end of Area 2. Snack Shack's Quarter Pounder gets the seal of approval from UP Diliman students so you know that it's really gooddownside is you have to beat them to it because the lines can get very long. Their burger is worth the wait, we promise! It deserves to be hailed as the best burger on campus.

  1. Rodic's Diner (P90)

A UP food trip won't be complete without a stop at Rodic's Diner. It is considered an institution on campus (it has been around since 1949!) and their tapsilog occupies a very special place in the heart of every Iskolar ng Bayan. You can find Rodic's Diner in the UP Shopping Center. Pro tip: Be generous when you drizzle vinegar over their signature tapa. You'll thank us later.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
