This is another resto by the doctor aka the owner of Cafe Juanita, Haru, Soho, and Burgis Junction.

This place is a "turo turo" kind of eatery. Cheap food but good quality! We had the saba con hielo and caldereta. Both were good and I think we spent less than P100

It's also nicely decorated with antiques and cute trinkets just like the ones you'll see in all of the doctor's resto (even in his salon: Shunji Matsuo)!

One of the most popular place in kapitolyo, they offer home dishes like dinuguan, kaldereta, mechado atbp. Its more like your typical carinderia but its not cheap as you would expect 128513 though lumulutang sa mantika ang mga ulam nila

They have interesting interiors too!

Their Kaldereta is a must. It is the most pricy of all the lutong bahay there, about 90 up. Tama un iba medyo malamok becoz of the antiques na d nmn masyado nalilinis at puro alikabok

It was lunch time when we arrived in Manila from Tarlac; decided to eat in Causeway in Libis and saw that there were people still waiting in line outside.

Told my 'rents to eat in Kapitolyo since we haven't tried it yet. Passed in Ba Noi's, Thai Dara, and finally saw Silantro but my dad wouldn't want to go because there's nowhere to park! 128555 Kung ako lang may hawak ng manibela, binalandra ko na lang yun. 128518

Ended up in, Kainan AuGusto! 128526

Upon entering you'll be welcomed with numerous cups and glasses that are on sale! 128561 yes, they're decorations are mostly on sale; from the figurines, to hanging lights, to different plates and antique items, everything have tag prices! Although few are sold, you can still find collectible and unique items here.

I was so fixated in the surroundings that I didn't know what to eat. I ordered US Beef Tapa which costs around Php 150? and my folks ordered Sweet and Sour Bola Bola and Menudo. Plus Mini halo halo for dessert.

The food is good. They have "lutong bahay" kind if menu. The Menudo tastes like my Inang's', plus the tapa I ordered is well cooked that my mom ate 3/4 of it. Haha the only downside is that there's no tomato or even a salted egg to pair the tapa.

The place offers music at night so it must be cool to eat here during nighttime.

Upside:
Antique love 128525
It's breezy in the afternoon even if there's no AC
Good food
Affordable prices

Downside:
Medyo malamok
No food presentation to put on IG 128517

This simple resto offers affordable Lutong bahay viands. Though they serve oily foods I would just recommend that you eat rice together with the food to lessen the "umay" factor. They also sell antiques and those things compose the design that makes the place sort of vintage-ish. I recommend their Dinuguan, Kaldereta and ADOBO! And they're merienda food? Sweet leche flan and Saging sa Saba 128077

So I ate in this place in Kapitolyo, I got fascinated with the loolooapp since my aunt used it to search for this place. I'm not really into social media so I just borrowed my cousin's FB eadd to create a looloo account (good thing she's so eager to win a contest of yours so she let me have it) and use this to search for good eats. I only got a few IG posts too.

And for the review, this place offers affordable and lutong bahay dishes. This is my most favorite of them, the Kaldereta may be oily; one of those cheat day moments. It's best served with rice. You'll love their dinuguan as well. I think they're associated with Cafè Juanita. Well this simple kainan also sells antique stuff.

I was referred by Argee E to join the #loolooiPhone5Cgiveaway!

(HAHA here you go cous, thanks again for introducing me to this app)

Cafe Juanita-carinderia style (They have the same owner)! If you're craving for Cafe Juanita's mechado, beef kaldereta or if you're lucky, their kare-kare (basta anything Filipino) and you're eating solo, on a tight budget or both, this is the place you should go to. The best time to go here? On Sunday afternoon or Monday morning when most of the leftovers from Cafe Juanita's famous Sunday buffet are made available here including my favorite, their crispy tilapia (minus the tomato salsa... you really can't have it all... lol!).

Cafe Juanita food delight a la shmancy-fancy "carinderia" style (and carinderia price). That's the best way I could describe the dining experience at this hole-in-the-wall extension of the famed Cafe Juanita.

Guinisang bichuellas, a cup of rice, pork adobo, minatamis na saging na Saba , and a can of Coke Zero set me back a mere Php 100.00 . The pork adobo tasted exactly like what they served at the main restaurant. Serving size was reasonable.

For those intimidated by the thought of eating in carinderias due to cleanliness, health reasons, and ambience, please note that I'm using the word 'carinderia'' loosely here. Carinderia-- because it's self service , cooked food is displayed on the counter(turo-turo), a list of short-order pinoy merienda fare, and there's no a/c (electric fans are used for ventillation).

BUT (yes all caps), what makes the place unique is that it still carries that Cafe Juanita whimsical, shabby-chic charm--- antique wooden heavy tables and chairs, antique ceiling and wall fixtures, antique lighting fixtures-chandeliers-lamps, antique Art Decors thrown around , and indoor potted plants strewn around. A big living tree even adorns the center of the place. Kinda gives you a garden-dining feel.

Worried about who eats at the place? Quite surprisingly, patrons of this place range from yuppies from nearby offices, executives, students, residents from the area, and the typical man-from-the street.

This place started off as the dining place for Cafe Juanita's staff. Food from the main kitchen was served to them. But the owner opened it up to the public. And it has been patronized rather well through the years.

A good recommendation for those craving for Cafe Juanita cuisine but are on a very tight schedule and /or budget. Just hope that your favorite dish from the main restaurant is part of the turo-turo experience on the day that you visit.

For the sticky toffee addicts of Cafe Juanita-- sorry....they don't serve the legendary sticky toffee pudding at this place. You just have to eat at the main restaurant if you need a fix.
