We’ll just go right ahead and say it—Taft has some of the most memorable college food. We never seem to run out of things to miss, from Ate Rica’s Bacsilog to Tori Box’s Kara-age Pops.

A few weeks ago, our foodie group had a Poblacion crawl within the same area. Owner, Reymont Choachuy invited us to indulge in three relatively new establishments- Vietnamese Barbecue, Bang Bang Bar, and Lugaw Manila.

Bang Bang was our second stop; a speakeasy bar on top of the Vietnamese Barbecue.

4 large eggplants(talong)
2 white onions, cubed
4 medium-sized tomatoes, cubed
2 pieces green pepper
2 tablespoons sauteed shrimp paste

Part 1
1. Broil eggplants until skin are charred and blister.

It was a unique invite last week as Shopwise Sucat (free parking here, folks!) invited me to experience their 21st-anniversary gift to its customers. They call this 21 Tastic Treats, a catalog of exclusive Shopwise discounts from more than a hundred partner brands.

6 plantains(saging na saba), peeled and sliced
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. In a cooking pot, boil water then add brown sugar. Keep stirring until dissolved.

Silvanas with meringue wafers, French buttercream filling, and ground cashew or cracker crumb coating are the ultimate cookies! Creamy and buttery, they’re seriously addicting!

As the Samgyupsal era continues, innovation and additional flare are necessary. Wagyupsal understands this fully as they offer all you can eat local wagyu, tempura, pork, beef, and Korean side dishes for just Php 799!

Yellow Cab got you covered this Lenten season. If you are abstaining on meat, they have a line-up prepared for their avid customers.

Yellow Cab came up with a no guilt bundle that’s still full of flavor! Available from April 12-21 is a group set of two 10” pizzas and two large bowls of pasta, for just Php 999! Yep, up to 6 people can share this limited Lenten menu.

With restaurants dedicated to the beloved French-influenced Vietnamese sandwich like Bon Banh Mi, O’Banh Mi and Banh Mi Kitchen, we think it’s safe to say that locals are a fan of the Banh Mi.
