Restaurant Of Choice - ROC in UP Diliman

What to eat in ROC (Restaurant Of Choice)

Bahay ng Alumni. 2013.  ROC is a themed restaurant within the Bahay Alumni. We came in from an afternoon jog from the university oval. A bit of a trivia, we have so much memories from Bahay ng Alumni, as we used to visit the place to burn brows surfing the net on the second floor (now that same spot housed the Alumni office), watching concerts, tambayan before going to Film Center and food spotting at the famous Chocolate Kiss "noong araw" when payday is here; we run towards CK.
So much idle time back  in the days when food blogging was not around and internet fees skyrocketed every minute. 

And since Chocolate Kiss is located inside the building (we were looking for CK for their al fresco dining but it wasn't there anymore) instead we headed to ROC. Foodamn Philippines find ROC a taste of fusion dishes. They served Filipino food, American, Italian and Mexican. 

Surprisingly, ROC's panizza is the cheapest we had.

Margherita Panizza or rolled pizza (PhP228) is a house specialty, a vegetarian pizza with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil chiffonade. Big enough for two to three persons, served with chopped lettuce and a choice of creamy ranch or pesto dip. This panizza was served with the right crispness, yummy and affordable.

Spinach lasagna rolls (PhP190) , also the house favorites, are filled with spinach, ground beef and spices. Cheesy healthy pasta kids would

For the rice meal we tried Garlic Chicken (PhP190) another house best seller, made up of thigh fillets pan fried and topped with ROC's garlic sauce. The dish is served with garlic rice and the chef's seasoned veggie. Quiet heavy for a single person but the garlicky flavor and special sauce makes the dish stand out.

For the beverages, we've tried ROCha (less than PhP100) - ROC's milk tea with black pearl and ice tea.

For desserts we ordered banana cheesecake and brewed coffee.

Overall, the meal was fantastic and reasonably priced. Ambiance exudes feel-good, less crowd at that time. Perfect for family dining and private meetings. The place has Wi-Fi connection though not that reliable. The quality of service is average  and most of all it's great to be back at Bahay ng Alumni.
