My friends and family always look forward to visiting me in Katipunan because they know that the street is known for being lined with several restaurants, cafes, and food spots you cannot find elsewhere. Year after year, new places come and go which promises a unique foodie experience with every visit.

  1. Brickfire


For all you meat-lovers out there who want to enjoy a delicious steak for a good price, this is the place to be. Famous for their signature Cowgirl Annie, Brickfire is a casual dining steakhouse that serves prime meat fit for any occasion. They also serve Tapa, Adobo Flakes, and other Filipino dishes.

Looking for a budget-friendly place to accommodate a large number of people? This is the go-to place for university organizations, barkadas and block hangouts for to-share orders for a good price! Their popular Adobo Rice can be shared between 2-3 persons all for the price of PHP150. With Wok Dis Way, you won't be afraid to go all out with your appetite because the prices are very student-friendly

  1. CoCoFresh Tea & Juice


If you're just like me who craves Milk Tea on most days, a weekly visit to CoCo is a must. Since it is not that far of a walk from the campus, it's easy to spot students around campus with CoCo cups in hand on the way to class. An easy favorite would be Panda Milk Tea which contains both white and black pearls that will surely satisfy any sweet tooth out there.

  1. Xocolat


A timeliness favorite for college students in Katipunan, Xocolat is surely a must-visit restaurant. A food place known for their chocolate-centric desserts and drinks, Xocolat is also a cozy spot for studying or for one-on-one meetings. They have a long list of mains, but if you're just looking to eat dessert, Xocolat also has a wide selection of cakes and other pastries. My friends and family are also fond of passing by just to order their Salted Caramel Brownies to re-heat at home!

Price Range: PHP 90 to PHP 400

  1. Roku


Since Japanese Food is a must every once in a while, it is not surprising that Katipunan also has a go-to place for students who need to recover from a long day at school with some sushi and teriyaki! A personal favorite is their Chicken Teriyaki with extra teriyaki sauce on the side and Spicy Tuna Salad.
