Finally, I got the time to visit this street food park located in Kapitolyo, Pasig, Gastro Park. Yay!

Gastro Park is one of the hottest and coolest food destinations located at Kapitolyo, Pasig. As far as I know, the food park opened for a long while now and after passing by there one night, I immediately went there to try out the place. It was a weekday and I enjoyed the experience.

I arrived at around 8PM and the place was quite full. From afar, you'll instantly feel the cool, casual and artsy vibes of this food park.

Upon walking through the main entrance area, I really enjoyed staring at the number of establishments that made me excited to eat.

Starting from the right side, enjoy some ribs and lechon kawali. Some Italian favorites like pizza and pasta are also there for you to enjoy. If you're craving for some staple chicken wings, no worries because they have it too. Yummy paninis and sandwiches that will surely make you full are of course there too. For the tempura madness, Tokyo Tempura can solve that craving of yours and I ordered my fix here.

Tokyo Tempura has been famous for a long while now because tjey do serve really yummy tempura. If you're near a Tokyo Tempura establishment, you'll get easily attracted to it because of its smell that's really addicting. As always, there were long lines in the establishment so that's another reason to really fall for it.

They have different items from their menu. From the basic tempura to crab stick tempura to vegetable tempura, everything looked really yummy! The batter's definitely the best part of all these tempura because I can taste the butter in it that made me fall for it more. It was drizzled with nori, onion and tokyo sauce. This Crazy Tempura for 100php, it was really sulit!

For my first visit here at Gastro Park, I really enjoyed the experience given the nice ambiance of the place, its cool and casual vibes and the good music that actually gave the food scenerio even happier and livelier. Will definitely come back here to try the unlimited tempura offering of Tokyo Tempura.

If you have not tried their tempura yet, oh my, you're missing on something so great so go go go for it!

Surprise! Surprise! It was actually good! I ordered the 9 pcs. of tempura (Php115) and expected a bucket of flour. It's not the authentic tempura - they used the fish n' chips batter instead, but nonetheless good. I will definitely go for the unlimited next time! 128077

My neice ordered the Choriburger meal... it wasn't good. The meat didn't even taste like a choriburger. It tasted old, too! 128530

This is the first stall we visited. Seeing their ad saying Unlimited Tempura seems to be exciting, for only P199 per pax. But we kind of hold back, since we might get full. So we had the Tempura Bucket (9 pcs for P115)

Serving takes about 20 minutes, due to bulk orders during lunch time.

Verdict: Batter is ok, nothing spectacular.
Service: Friendly server 128522 no follow ups yet finds us to serve our order
Price: reasonable 128076🏼

Above is a photo of our leftovers.

Cheese logs (P100) DO NOT BE DECEIVED. If you want to taste this, go to the supermarket and eat a block of ques-o ( di man lang Eden eh) These are blocks of processed cheap cheddar cheese in lumpia wrapper. There was also a hint of other meat flavors - from the oil it was cooked with. There are also jizz up (sorry for the language) cheese on top.

Bacon fries (P100) tastes like breaded bread with cheezewhiz pimiento. DO NOT ORDER.

Nagtapon lang ng P200 yung friend ko.

The food in Gastro Park was not good and very expensive for the quality. It's a waste of money. Never going back to that place again. Magsara na sila.

Tempura lovers - attack!!! For just Php199 plus Php50 for kublai chan rice..you can satisfy your tempura craving. Located at Gastro Park in Kapitolyo, Pasig, where you can find a lot of food choices, this one is the best value for money.
Note: You really need to order rice to avail the unli tempura

Went back to try some of their other items on the menu!

Bacon fries 100 pesos. Sadly the only crunchy part was the breading. The dip that came with it was pretty good, some jalapeño cheese dip of some sort. But the bacon itself wasn't crunchy, because it seemed they breaded the bacon then deep fried it. I think I would have liked it better if they half cooked the bacon beforehand and then breaded and deep fried it.

Chili cheese logs 100 pesos. These were so good, I nearly finished it all before I remembered that I was with other people.

Maybe next time I'll try the burger, but I can't get over the "glaced" typo on their menu.

49 pesos for 4 pieces of deep fried chili and cheese in batter with sweet chili sauce on the side. Chilies were nice and big, and awesomely spicy and cheesy!

Didn't try the other stuff, I'll save it for the next visit :)

Ordered 9pcs of shrimp tempura which costs me a little more than php100. It was just okay. Sulit na for its price. The shrimps used were small. The batter was okay, you have to dip it to their sauce to have an added flavor. If you are craving for shrimp tempura with low budget, try this one. 128521128514

After El Phante, we tried the Tokyo Tempura in Gastro Park. I got 9 pieces Shrimp Tempura for Php115.00 and my friend choose the Dynamite for P45.00.

We finished the 9 pieces Shrimp Tempura, but we cannot finish the Dynamite, it is Super Spicy, all we did was to ate all the cheese. Hahaha! 128514🧀127844

Shrimp Tempura - 11088110881108811088️ 4/5

Coz this place is so popular now, we dared to to try it. Luckily, the place was not crowded. Nothing special about the food we ordered. But there's a lot of choices so its a plus point. Will try to explore this place again 128077🏼

The craze for food parks has just began as more and more areas are being developed to accommodate start up food concessionaires offering unique and delectable dishes and drinks. Sadly, I haven’t been to most and the only ones I have visited were Pioneer Food Market (where I just walked and exited in a few minutes) and Gastro Park Kapitolyo. One of the stalls I tried a few months ago was this Japanese store that offer unlimited tempura.

Hello, Tokyo Tempura!

Gastro Park was packed when we went one Saturday night. We were lucky though to spot an empty table at Tokyo Tempura. Honestly, this store didn’t attract me when I visited earlier that same day. I guess it was because their tempura was just the usual, except that they also offer unlimited tempura.

But since we will sit there, we made sure to buy something from the store. Hungry R availed of the Tempura All You Can (PHP199) while my friends and I decided to share Chili Cheese (PHP49) and Stuffed Chori Burger (PHP180). The burger is from Offbeat Burger but is also owned or managed by Tokyo Tempura.

R’s tempura was served first and we noticed that the tempura was quite short. Small and thin shrimps were used for the tempura and there was more batter than shrimp. Since it was an unlimited promo, the ones who avail of this have to sit near the store so that the servers could monitor as sharing is not allowed. R, being persistent and all, gave me a few bites of the tempura while nervously checking if the rather huge server saw us.

The Chili Cheese was super spicy that one small nibble made me turn red. It is definitely not for those with low spice tolerance. I didn’t even get a taste of cheese.

The Stuffed Chori Burger was one of the dishes we tasted last hence it was already cold when we had a bite. The patty was thick and meaty. It was also quite juicy. But it was typical for me. It must have tasted better warm but I don’t think it could surpass 8Cuts or Burger Pub.

Oh, if you are wondering if getting the unlimited promo is worth it, R said that he felt he didn’t get his money’s worth. In order to make the promo worth your money, you need to eat at least 19 tempura. R was overwhelmed by the oil on his 10th tempura and regretted not getting the Tempura Bucket with 9 tempura for PHP105.

Will I go back? With the options available, perhaps not.
