ROC - That other restaurant

Being an ISKA (an Alumnus of the University of the Philippines, Diliman), I'm ashamed to admit that I only learned about ROC recently. For those familiar with UP, I'm sure you've all heard about Chocolate Kiss Cafe. That famous restaurant located at the Bahay ng Alumni.  But did you know that there's this other restaurant also at the Bahay ng Alumni? It's called ROC or Restaurant of Choice. It's on the left side of the building when entering from the front/main entrance.

Well, I got curious and so I checked it out.

The restaurant is a bit small, so reservation is a must.  There's a homey feel to it.  We were lucky to be seated by the sofa, so that made me feel more at home.

The food was ok, nothing much to rave about.  But I did like the Saigon BBQ a lot! It was very tasty!  The best part of it all is the price!  It's very affordable, and with no service charge.  Service was ok, but could still be improved.  I think they would need more staff especially on days when the restaurant is full (like when we were there, all the tables were filled and sometimes we couldn't find a waiter to attend to our needs).  

Anyway, enough of my ramblings. Let these pictures show you what ROC is all about.  You should give it a try!

Bangkok Fish - Crispy Tilapia!

Chicken Chopsticks Salad - I loved the crispy wanton strips and the dressing was not overpowering.

Quattro Funghi - My daughter liked this a  lot. The pesto bread was crunchy and delicious, we had to order more! :)

Garlic Chicken

Saigon BBQ - so tasty and delicious... I'm coming back for more! :)

Whiskey Glazed Chops - my sister and I shared this dish. My sister liked it. It's so-so for me.  But the vegetable sidings were fresh and crunchy.

Vinaigrette Salad

Diliman Duo - Spicy tuyo flakes, longganisa, scrambled egg
