The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club – Not only is it the name of a classic 80s film, but it also happens to be the name of a small diner located in Kapitolyo. No need to guess what kind of food they serve in here. I had a bit of a hard time looking for information regarding this place, because there’s waaaay too many restos from around the world that carry the same name. Oh well. I believe the one here in Kapitolyo is their second branch – They have another branch in Banawe, owned by actress Erich Gonzales.

Interior. We were greeted by this seemingly unpleasant smell as soon as we stepped inside… The waiter told us that it was coming from their kitchen. Hmmm.

Menu shots. Their Banawe branch occasionally sets up a breakfast buffet for their customers – Not sure about the one here in Kapitolyo, though.

We were pretty much the only customers there, but it took more than thirty minutes before our food was served. *side-eyes* <_<

Beef Pares. The beef chunks were nice and tender, and the sauce had a lovely, sweet finish to it. This was actually good!

Fish and Chips. I find it interesting that they used actual chips, instead of fries. The fish was nice and moist, but it was a tad bit salty and my mom even found a small bone in one of the pieces. Uh-oh.

Waffle with Fried Chicken. For some reason they didn’t have a waffle-maker ready, so I had to settle for pancakes and chicken instead. This isn’t the first time that this has happened. Anyway, they fried a whole chicken leg for this dish – Including the bones and all. The meat was very dry, and the pancakes were a tad bit too thick for my liking.

As much as I enjoyed the food, I have to say this place gets low marks from me thanks to that weird smell I mentioned earlier, and the slow service. Tsk tsk. It really does pain me to criticize a potentially good breakfast place like this one… Let’s just hope they improve their service for the sake of their other clients.

Ambiance/Interior: 3/5
