Earlier today, we went to Kanto Freestyle Breakfast’s branch in Kapitolyo to see what the fuss is about regarding this eatery. I know several people who have dined here, and gave it rave reviews, which led to my curiosity.
If it’s your first time to visit this neighborhood, you will probably have a difficult time trying to find the place, since Kanto doesn’t have a sign outside, and can be easily mistaken for an ordinary residence. Just look for the cluster of cars parked outside of a gigantic black gate (although this makes parking slightly difficult to do as well).
Interior. Not exactly the cleanest place I’ve dined in, but for me, it adds charm to the resto. I have a complaint, though: They need to have a separate area for smokers and non-smokers—Halfway through our lunch, a girl at the table beside us started puffing cigarettes, and it was… bleh. Horrible. -_-
Menu: Freestyle Breakfast (where you can choose your own viand), Cereals, KantoBoy Breakfast, and Pancakes/French Toast/ATBP. Drinks include Kapeng Kanto (made from Batangas coffee beans), Blended, Iced, and Soda/Juices/ATBP.
French Toast with Bacon and Eggs. The bacon had the right amount of crispiness and saltiness, and even though the toast was drenched in syrup, it wasn’t sickeningly sweet at all. Was expecting my scrambled eggs to be a little more runny, but other than that, this dish was excellent.
Iced Choco. Very refreshing on a hot summer day. This was really good, and I wish they could’ve served this drink in a larger glass. ^^;
For dessert, I tried their Deep Fried Cloud Nine (yes, you read that right), which reminded me of a chocolate cordon bleu.
Some local dishes this time! Batangas Beef Tapa, Tinapang Galunggong, and Tuyo Flakes with Kesong Puti for the parents.
Kanto’s ambiance may look plain, but the food that they serve is simply superb. No wonder it attracts lot of customers, despite having to weave through narrow alleys and crowded residential areas. I suggest you try this restaurant if you’re on a tight budget, and want to try some delicious and satisfying breakfast meals, 24/7.
