Rodic's One-of-a-Kind Tapsilog

I have a confession to make. I haven't tasted Rodic's tapsilog when I was still a student in UP Diliman. 

“No way!” Some true-blue Maroon might exclaim. It was said that you can never call yourself a true UP Diliman student if you haven't tasted the tapsilog of Rodic's. Maybe I was not a true UP student back then. But now, when I am already an alumnus, I can say that I already partaken of this famous tapsilog.

My brother brought me to a branch of Rodic's located at the corner of Masaya and Maginhawa Streets. The place was newly occupied by Rodic's during that time and the construction works are not yet finished.

The original Rodic's is located in UP Diliman Shopping Center. The restaurant caters to budget conscious students. Rodic's already became a landmark inside the University because of its 5 decades  existence and, of course, of its unique tapsilog.

Sabaw!

The Rodic's staff were prompt. They immediately brought the cold water and sabaw (soup). Our tapsilog came after about half-an-hour later.

Tapsilog is a fusion of tapa (cured pork), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (sunny side up egg). It is one of the common dish in carenderias and cheap restaurants. What made Rodic's tapsilog unique is that the cured pork was shredded. What I like about it is that it is easy to chew. The taste of this tapsilog is really good.

The price of Rodic's tapsilog is cheap, I think, compared to fast food restaurants in the area. 

Rodic's tapsilog is really yummy! Now I know what I missed during my college days.

    1. Hehe...mukhang uso na pagkain ng mga mag-aaral ng state universities ang tapsilog. :-)

      Masarap talaga sa Rodic's. Try mo kapag nagawi ka sa UP Diliman.

    1. I think it is. But when I was a student I don't have enough money to eat at Rodic's.

    1. Hehe...if you want veggies then you should order another dish that have veggies in it. Tapsilog doesn't have veggies. If veggies were added then it stop being a tapsilog.

  7. ay! importante talaga sakin yung breakfast kahit na coffee at pandesal pa yan. it's actually one of the best moment you would share with your partner, family, and friends. kahit galing inuman tapos drecho na sa silugan, parang maaliwalas parin yung kainan.

    1. Correct. Every meal with your love ones are precious moments kaya hindi dapat balewalain. :-) Sa hapagkainan nagsasalo-salo ang lahat. It reminds of the Holy Mass, kung saan ang lahat ay nagsasalo-salo sa katawan ni Kristo.

    1. Saan po ba kayo pumunta banda sa UP Diliman? Kung sa Sunken Garden or Lagoon kayo pumwesto eh malayo kayo sa isaw-isaw. Yung isaw-isaw po ay nasa open area sa harap ng International Dorm at UP Swimming Pool.

      Ang Rodic's po ay matatagpuan sa loob ng UP Shopping Center. Malapit po 'yung shopping center sa UP Chapel.

  9. I miss silogs. More partial to longsilog than tapsilog nga lang. =)

    1. Aba. Mas gusto mo ang longsilog kesa sa tapsilog. Masarap din ang longsilog lalo kung yung longganisa na ginamit nila ay good quality.
