Mang Tootz Serves Rum-Spiked Turon at PHP4 ApieceJune 14, 2019
As Mang Larry’s is to UP and Ate Rica’s Bacsilog is to DLSU, Mang Tootz is to UST (and the rest of U-Belt). The hole-in-the-wall carinderia on P. Noval Street has saved hungry penny-pinching (or peso-pinching?) students with rice meals below PHP100. They serve usual home-cooked Filipino fare, but they also have non-typical options like Korean BBQ and Mediterranean-style chicken kebab.
But everyone really goes to Mang Tootz for Bananarhum-a, their rum-spiked (you barely taste it!) version of turon. They deep-fry batches by the wok, and sell each piece at PHP4—so you get a plate of five for only PHP20! They go pretty quickly, but that only means that you’ll probably get your turon hot and fresh each time.
