I love love love isaw! One of the best places to get them is at Mang Larry's. Their isaw is affordable, cleaned well, and grilled perfectly.

An institution in UP Diliman for students and visitors alike, Mang Larry's isawan is, in all likelihood, the anchor store of Grub Hub, a food park along Visayas Ave, QC. With many many years of the store's presence near the SC (shopping center) of nearby UP Diliman, it was about time that Mang Larry expanded his business further. After all, it has tens of thousands of satisfied customers built over years or even decades. In Grub Hub, for P10 a stick, you can order the usual "pampabata" grilled goodies like pork isaw (intestine), chicken isaw, balun balunan (gizzard), pork barbecue, liver, bigger pork isaw, chicken skin (I think), and so much more... about a dozen or so choices. I thought these things were gross as a kid, but luckily, my teenage years exposed me to food adventures like "isaw" in the mean streets of, ummmm, Santolan Road, QC. ;p

Mang Larry's takes maybe 10 to 15 minutes to grill the stuff, give and take, and they just give you a number to claim. Not high tech, but that's okay. It also helps that Mang Larry's vinegar (suka) dipping sauce is oh-so-good. Use the plastic cups and their suka dispenser on the side; they also have a kind of sweet sauce akin to the one fishball vendors use. I personally prefer the taste of the vinegar sauce, albeit it's a bit spicy. For the uninitiated on this type of cuisine, this is a must-try; go with the pork isaw and chicken isaw; I didn't like their barbecue nor balun-balunan, so I'll stick to the pork (over chicken) isaw and chicken skin. These are mighty high cholesterol stuff, so it isn't recommended for regular consumption, so enjoy it while you can, young 'uns, coz it ain't supposed to be eaten even 1x/week.

Worth a Try: Absolutely
Worth a Return: Yes! But 1x/a month at most. 128518128517

The isaw we had that night were both dry and overcooked. 128533 it tasted meh. We regretted ordering a lot because we know how Mang Larry's isaw tasted but that night it wasn't up to par with the quality of taste 128533

We ended not finishing the entire plate that we had.
Such a waste! 128532

‪Isaw!!!‬

‪I love Mang Larry's isaw. I am so glad that Mang Larry's Isawan is one of the front liners of Grub Hub which is located at Visayas Avenue corner Congressional Avenue, Quezon City.‬

‪Mang Larry's Isawan is one of the pioneers and famous barbecue joints inside University of the Philippines - Diliman, Quezon City Campus. I remember those days that after we went to church inside the campus we will make "tambay" in the parking near the church and we will buy isaw ni Mang Larry's. The price is Php5.00 per stick before, now in Grub Hub they offer it at Php10.00 per stick. Still not bad, it's affordable.‬

‪We had Isaw ng Manok, Isaw ng Baboy and Inihaw ng Tenga ng Baboy for Php10.00 per stick. The server took our order and delivered it where we were seated in Grub Hub.‬

‪Isaw ng Manok - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5‬

‪Isaw ng Baboy - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5‬

‪Tenga ng Baboy - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5‬

‪I really like the grilled isaw especially the homemade vinegar. Ang sarap!!! The tenga ng baboy was chewable, even without the vinegar. Masarap!‬

‪You can visit Mang Larry's Isawan inside the Grub Hub in Hippie Yard part where you can find the stage (where the band/s will play at night) and Godzilla Mosaic wall.‬

This classic UP isawan moved to GrubHub! Bigger, batter, more comfortable place to hang. Nothing beats their classic isaw from before, but im glad the sticks are bigger.
