(Chapter 2) Student Fare, Bakakeng: Manna Garden Cafe

I still maintain that kids these days are so lucky.  (Booming Bakakeng with impressive school facilities, man!) That being said, I wouldn’t exchange my experiences as a student to be a student today.  (Anybody can go back to school if they want, yes, but total replacement of memories, nah … shriveled hotdogs on cold rice in a baonan/lunch box with moist covers because the food was packed up when it was still hot *heehahaha Those were the days).  Let’s just go with: You’re lucky,I’m lucky, everyone’s lucky.

Student Fare, Bakakeng: Cafe de Illustradoz and Food Ville

Bakakeng today (yes, I’m fixated on the location at the moment *hihi) is a far cry from the Bakakeng of my memories.  It was one that had an outskirts type of feel to it that was changed with the arrival of a school and its students.  Now, it seems like everything you’ll ever need here is attainable with the barangay residents transforming their garages, front lawns or backyards into businesses.

(This so reminds me of how my best friend, Myrtle used to say how she loved the prospect of relocating to where I lived. On the ‘university belt’, it seemed like barangays with its eateries, convenience stores, laundry shops, PC rooms, etc., could be a city on its own, she said. Big hugs, Myrtle and the kiddies! (“,))

When you need to eat and you need food fast, delicious and easy on the (student) budget (in the Bakakeng vicinity), you have a handful of choices now. Featuring two of Cholo’s recommendations (Thankies, Cholo!): Cafe de Illustradoz and Food Ville. Read More…

Student Fare: Marosan’s Restaurant, ‘Greenhouse’, Reg’s Binalot and Macsbox

When you need to eat and you need food fast, delicious and easy on the (student) budget, you have four main choices. There’s Marosan’s/RJ/Lenroc, the ‘Greenhouse’, Reg’s Binalot and Macsbox.

Marosan’s Restaurant

Marosan’s a.k.a. Lenroc a.k.a. RJ has been in business for the longest time. When I was in college that’s where my friends and I used to go. (No pictures of course, I wasn’t a foodie yet and also, compact and affordably priced digicams were nonexistent then.) You can go to the Marosan’s establishment a little ways from the SLU main gate or you can go to the one along Bonifacio Street which is closer from the Otto Hahn gate.
