Feel like having some good & tasty Tapsilog? (that's tapa (thin marinated beef slices), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (fried eggs) to the unaware)=) ...It pretty much started off as a breakfast staple in many Manila hole-in-the-walls but it has, for some time now, been present even in lunch and dinner menus around the metro. Here, we have for you one of the best places to sample the famous tapsilog. And it sits in the country's most renowned campus: the University of the Philippines in Diliman.

...the joint is called Rodic's. Located at the shopping center of UP Diliman, it is the only place in manila that serves shredded beef tapa which gives them that noticeable edge over the usual tapsilogans around. The place is a staple among UP students and is frequented also by nearby office workers, residents and famous local celebs, even. They've actually been featured in many TV magazine shows comparing them to other tapsi hotspots and so far, they're the tapsilog place of choice according to most (if not all) the shows we've seen. Dining here would cost you about Php 75-100 per person.

My hubby and I always accompany our Rodic's tapsilogs with their yummy sinigang na baboy (tender pork in tamarind soup). My personal favorite. =) But take note that the sinigang should be available everyday except on fridays.

Manage your expectations, though, when it comes to this small restaurant's overall look and feel. It's a literal hole-in-the-wall that could benefit from a major make over or just plain "serious" maintenance. If you're not that finicky then dine in. If you're bothered by a cramped, super small students cafeteria ambience then order take out. They also deliver so that's an option. Give them a shot if it's a hearty, budget-friendly tapsilog meal you're after. That's just what you'll get. ;-)

Remember, there's no room @ Rodic's for the hypercritical and fussy eaters! Bring only your indiscriminating selves and enjoy! =)
