After the almost two-hour drive from Pansol to Manila, we went to Kapitolyo for some comfort food. And to us, breakfast food = comfort food.
It’s Miko’s first time to eat at Kanto Freestyle Breakfast. It’s my first time to eat at their Kapitolyo branch. The branch I frequent is the one in Mandaluyong. :)
Miko had New Zealand Beef Tapa (110php, sarap ng timpla… kinda sweet) and I had Spanish Sardines Tempura (95php, my favorite… sardinas sossified). Both come with garlic rice, eggs, and tomato with pesto.
Add a side of perfectly crispy bacon. Uhhhm ummmm ummmmm! Just 25php per strip. :)
Tried two (relatively) new dishes– the Ube White Chocolate Ganache Pancake (95php) and Toasted Ensaymada, Spanish Bread, and Pan de Regla with Creme Anglaise (75php). I’m not an ube lover, but I liked it. And the crème anglaise of the 3 panaderia picks was yummy.
After our heavy breakfast merienda, we went to our other Kapitolyo favorite– Kitchen Diaries, which is just next door.
We had coffee and tea. And took home a bagful of freshly-baked goodies!
My favorites! Cupcakes with perfect frosting, Red Velvet Cream Cheese Crinkles (best crinkles in Manila, I tell you), chocolate chip cookies, and oatmeal crisps. Not really sure about the names of the last two, but I’m sure that parehong masarap. :P
Make it a point to visit Kitchen Diaries and Kanto Freestyle Breakfast when you are in Kapitolyo! ;)
