Kapitolyo

Quezon City and Parañaque may have Maginhawa and BF Homes, but Pasig City has Kapitolyo, home to some of the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants in the Metro.

There’s two main streets on Kapitolyo: East Drive, which has more budget-friendly restaurants, and West Drive, which caters to those who are willing to shell out a little more for great food.

The restaurants that you can find on East Drive range from humble burgers (Charlie’s Grind and Grill) to Filipino-Mexican fusion (Silantro) to classic baby back ribs (RUB Ribs & BBQ). There’s also a coffee shop here that makes its own brew (Epic Coffee Roastery), a place that makes its own ice cream (Mad Mark’s) and even a deli that makes homemade bacon and sausages (Poco Deli).

Make sure to check out the barbeque place that put Kapitolyo on the map (Three Sisters); they still have the same recipe as they did back in 1941. You can also find them on East Drive.

On West Drive, you’ll find more upscale places that serve everything from classic Filipino (Cafe Juanita) to fresh Japanese sushi (Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant). The restaurants here are great for first dates or if you just want to treat yourself to something a little more special.

Don’t worry, there’s more to Kapitolyo than just east and west. Head over to Brixton Street for vegetarian and vegan fare (Edgy Veggy) or for Filipino food with a twist (Locavore). There’s also United Street if you’re looking for something spicy (Nav Modern Thai Cuisine) or for something that reminds you of home (Avi). Capitol Commons is fairly nearby too, if you’re hoping to find a place to drink as well as eat (Tipsy Pig).

Kapitolyo always has something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a place to grab a quick bite or if you want to check out an entirely new cuisine. The area is home to a variety of places to eat, each with its own distinct specialty. It may not have as many restaurants as Maginhawa or BF Homes, but it’s easy to see why Kapitolyo has stood the test of time.
