Taft Avenue is home to schools like De La Salle University, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, and St. Scholastica's College. We all know how expensive college can be and our allowance can only go so far. So of course, being home to so many students, Taft Avenue hosts a ton of restaurants that are student-friendly. Here are some restaurants to check out around the Taft area.
Exile on Main St.
leon ginto st.
Taken from its name, Exile would make you feel in "exile" since its location is quite hidden. All the food is made from scratch, from their sauces to their dips to the breading, even their ice cream is homemade. Must-tries at Exile are their chicken wings, Chicks Shall Fly, and Drunken Dory. Prices usually range from Php 120 to Php 200.
Leon guinto st.
FIDEL REYES ST.
The Barn is one of the places to be at during "Happy Thursdays." From its numerous choices of cocktails and shots, it's definitely a good place to be in during Happy T. But aside from that, they also offer some of the cheapest, ranging from Php 110 to Php 130, yet tastiest steaks from their T-Bone to their Porterhouse steak that will definitely leave you wanting more.
The food is similar to that of Yabu's but at a more student-friendly price. Nothing goes over Php 200. You get the rice, miso soup, appetizers, and the meat itself. It's the place to go for those Japanese food lovers on a budget.
