We finally came back to Kapitolyo after a while, and ended up having lunch at Cab Café. Cab Café first originated in Bacolod under the name ‘Café Bob’. Later on, they reached Metro Manila’s shores by opening up a branch in Cubao with a new name. IIRC, their branch in Kapitolyo is their second one here in Manila. I like cafes and I like Kapitolyo, so this place is just perfect for me.

Cozy-looking interior, like most Kapitolyo restos.

Roast Beef sandwich – Thinly sliced roast beef, mushrooms, onions, and gravy on the side. Honestly, this is pretty much everything that I’ve been looking for in a roast beef sandwich – Small yet paper-thin slices of meat, nicely toasted bread that wasn’t too thin or thick, and a good combo of mushrooms/gravy. I even enjoyed the fries.

Spicy Spanish Sardines and Eggs – Served with a fried egg and rice.

Chicken and Pork Adobo – Chicken and pork adobo, a fried egg, rice, and atchara. I thought it was a little bit on the greasy/fatty side.

A slice of Strawberry Shortcake. Had to settle for this since their bestseller wasn’t available (Chocolate Pistachio Cake).

Choco Crunchies for my drink. Not too icy, and not to sweet either.

That was pretty good! Their sandwiches and cakes are a must-try, for sure. My mom didn’t really like the adobo and sardines though – Maybe that was just a mistake on our part. We should probably try something else when we get another chance to eat here – But I’ll be sure to fill my stomach again with that delectable roast beef sandwich.
