If you’re not from the Kapitolyo area, it’s easy to get lost and overwhelmed by the zig-zag of restaurants alternating with residential homes and low-rise apartments.
East Capitol Drive is where, arguably, Kapitolyo as a food hub first emerged, and remains home to some of its most defining restaurants. Some familiar restaurants have even set up shop there, such as Rub Ribs & BBQ from Tomas Morato, and soon, a new restaurant from Antonio’s Group of Companies.
Start walking from the corner of Shaw facing Capital Commons, and you’ll be working up – and working off – an appetite in no time. Bring your best friends along!
This is not a complete list of what’s on East Capitol Drive, but these are Booky’s sure bets on what not to miss when you’re in the area. If you get lost on the way, don’t worry, our app can help you get back on track.
Three Sisters Restaurant – Kapitolyo
Start with something familiar: Filipino food that’s just as good as, or maybe even better than home. Their barbecue is especially addictive!
Charlie’s Grind and Grill – Kapitolyo
You’ll be spoiled for choice with their variants of burgers and fries but you can’t go wrong with their Black Angus Burger, Beer Burgers, Truffle Fries, Animal Fries, and milkshakes.
Mad Mark’s Creamery and Good Eats – Kapitolyo
Mad Mark’s has more than ice cream, with diners raving about their steaks. But also leave room for dessert, especially their signature Half-baked Madagascar Vanilla Ice Cream.
Poco Deli – Kapitolyo
Enter Poco Deli and it’s like you’ve been transported to a little pocket of Europe. On the menu are deli meats, sausages, pizzas, wines, beers, artisanal ice cream, and more. Do not leave without sinking your teeth into their thick and juicy bacon slab.
Epic Coffee Roastery – Kapitolyo
Take a break and cool your heels with something sweet at Epic Coffee Roastery. Made by the same team behind Poco Deli, you can go for a two-in-one by enjoying Poco Deli’s food with a cup of Epic’s Pour Over coffee or salted caramel frappe.
Red Panda Bistro – Kapitolyo
Eats meets west in their fusion of French and Chinese cuisine. It’s a tasty kind of trip with their Chinese-style Ossobucco and Truffled Roast Duck Ravioli.
Gostoso Piri Piri Chicken – Kapitolyo
Surf and turf and Portuguese-style chicken. If you want to try a little bit of everything, your best bet would be the Gostoso Platter which includes a whole chicken, 2 sides, and 2 servings of olive rice.
Tomahawk Chops & Grill – Kapitolyo
Tomahawk is considered one of Kapitolyo’s newest neighbor, but is a fast-rising star along the strip. Dig into their pork loin chops slathered in their special sauce, served with carrots, corn, and rice.
Open Kitchen by 48 Concepts – Kapitolyo
Have a taste of their French-Caribbean inspired dishes, and you also get an eyeful with beautiful plating. Try their 48 Bowl of Happiness, made of braised beef shanks; and any of their seafood dishes.
Silantro – Kapitolyo
The Fil-Mex cantina is worth the wait, with hefty portions of their rice meals, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, and more. Get tipsy with glasses of unliMojitos, and you will find it hard to share an order of meaty-cheesy nachos with friends.
