A visit at UPD is deemed futile if you don’t swing by Mang Larry’s Isawan! CMA had to run errands last Wednesday at UPD and I decided to introduce him to Mang Larry. I find it a lil odd that he doesn’t have an inkling who Mang Larry is. Anyway, y’all know that isaw is my all-time-favorite street food, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if I say that I bought a crap ton of them.

I felt a sudden rush of nostalgia when I saw the familiar stall. I used to frequent UPD back in the day (UP Fair and other stuff I made up so I can watch the stars at Sunken Garden). Bought a total of 30 skewers (15 for chicken intestine and 15 of pork intestine). No, I didn’t eat it all (I brought some at home just in case I felt a sudden pang of isaw craving). And yes, I loved every single bite. This is best eaten dipped in vinegar and washed down in soda. This is not healthy, but I don’t care.

Ikaw pa din ang nah-iisang isaw ng buhay ko, Mang Larry.

Been here numerous visits already while the location also changes from time to time. I was craving for these ihaw for a week and decided to come with my friend on a non-peak time of the day. Luckily, we just waited for about 10-15 mins. The dip is still the best.

Tried Mang Larry's isaw because majority of the people said that isaw here is the best and must-try.

So we joined the long line of people and waited for our turn. I think we waited for around 30 minutes or more.

I was kind of disappointed because I was expecting so much of their famous isaw. But to what I ate, it tasted just like any other isaws that I have tasted before. Nothing special.

It's not worth coming back for, actually. It's good, but it didn't reach my expectation. A lot of people were saying I should try it here. Parang di naman katulad sa sinabi nila 128542128517

Was excited but was disappointed because of so much hype of this place

1. There was a cockroach walking around the sauce container and nobody from the staff is doing anything about it!?!?

2. My number 38 at that time was skipped. And i was even the one waiting there patiently while all other customers were elsewhere.
Then i just turned my back for say a minute then they were onto number 41 already. When i asked them about my order they have not even grilled them yet.

3. So now we have the goods, time to taste. The isaw and barbecue were okay. Small but still okay.. Feels clean.. But the sauce is not really any special and its really in the sauce you know?
needs much improvement on taste please.

Barbecue 10php

A household name in the UP Diliman community, one cannot deny that Mang Larry's has set the "standard" in barbecued isaw at this side of the metro. In fact, the fame of this joint has extended beyond the hectares of UPD's campus such that people from nearby Katip and elsewhere flock here for that unique experience. Still inexpensive, and guaranteed fresh and clean, one may not need to worry about a food-borne epidemic street foods such as isaw are notorious for. If innards are not your thing, alternatives here include their regular pork BBQ and pork ears.

I'm not a flowers kind of person so don't bother with the floral bouquet or whatever BUT if it's an ISAW bouquet...now we're talking!

Hunted down this meryenda joint on a Sunday for an impromptu merienda up north. Winter was definitely not coming because it was such a hot day to be outside! #GoT

It wasn't hard for us to spot the stall where there were a lot of people in line. I ordered their chicken isaw (pictured) and some of my friends ordered pork and barbecues. There was a dirty ice cream vendor parked right in front of the stall so we rebels had dessert before our main event. 128076🏼 Since we expected our orders to take a while to finish, given the amount of isaws on the grill, we decided to walk around UP in search of some other food finds.

Too bad Snack Shack was closed so we just got some fruit shakes and other drinks at the shopping center.

We went back to Mang Larry's and to our delight, our orders were ready!

We got cups of sweet sauce and vinegar for sharing and my, oh, my, the hype is real! 128541 The chicken isaw is a bit smaller than what I'm used to but it definitely hit the spot. Ohhhh, the flavor of charred cholesterol. 128165128165128165

Nice experience to go all the way to UP to bond over some street food, hopefully they add some chairs soon!

Adios! 128111

I've been so interested to check out the famous legendary isawan in UP. First I only new about it from the book I was reading and when the right timing comes..Definitely worth coming back. Affordable. And Super sarap. :) (IsawAddictHere) for only 6 pesos may isaw kana. Twice na kaming nakapunta and morethan 200 pesos namen sulit na sulit sa dami at sarap!! :)

We also tried the fishballs stand sa tabi and nothing to say but MASSSAAAARRRAAAPP!

Mang Larry's is sure to satisfy your street food craving and its cheap. You can also buy fishballs beside Mang Larry's. And dirty ice cream as well.
