Best food in UP Diliman

Best food within the UP campus though a bit pricey compared to other establishments. The place is good though almost always packed. Definitely a must try if you're in the area.

The first time i entered this resto, I love the ambiance and the smell of the food. They offer variety of food from appetizers to main course and of course desserts. I like their seafood pasta so well and of course their blueberry cheesecake.

This is a restaurant that has stood the test of time inside the University of the Philippines Diliman Campus. Good food check, reasonable price check, ample parking check, relaxing ambiance check. Better and worse restaurants in campus have come and gone but Chocolate Kiss has stayed where it is for over three decades. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...Chocolate Kiss offers them... More

The thing about campus dining is that it is usually cheap and utilitarian. UP Diliman has many of these eating places. Then there is Chocolate Kiss. It is a small restaurant in a corner of one of the least used buildings. But it is always full. The food is always good. Special mention to the Chicken ala Kiev. Their desserts... More

In the Alumni Centre (Bahay ng Alumni) of thr State University's Diliman camous is this wonderful little cake store that offers delectable, unique offerings. All the cakes are basically good, but my personal favorite is the dayap (Philippine Lime) cake that gives the dessert a distinctly tangy, Filipino taste. The ube cake is something to try as well.

good pasta, great iced tea. I tried both their UP resto and the one at Roces before it closed down. now they are just a stall at sgt esguerra. the gambas pasta is quite good. Prices are slightly cheaper than Mary Grace. I consider the food here much better than BanApple although its pricier.

Although The Chocolate Kiss is best known for their desserts, their meals also deserve the spotlight. You get far more than you pay for every time. It's been years since my last visit, and so when I saw Hainanese Chicken Rice on the menu, I immediately ordered it. Very few places get this dish right, and it is a true... More

I visited again my favorite college place inside the campus and found that nothing really changed in the span of 5 years. Although the place is usually packed, you do not get the feel that it is too crowded. The portion size is generous and the taste is just great. I always come back for the cakes that also very...
