A new #1 is making us say, “Itadakimasu!”
It’s no surprise that when we think of where to eat in Pasig, many of us immediately think of Kapitolyo restaurants and with good reason. Kapitolyo is filled with exciting restaurants and is also perfect for when we just want to take a break from malls.
A number of the top 10 restaurants for this month are, again to no surprise, in Kapitolyo but there are also many other places to discover in Pasig!
Here are the top 10 most loved restaurants in Pasig for this month based on user favourites from Booky!
10. The Good Seed by Edgy Veggy – Kapitolyo
The Good Seed by Edgy Veggy is a casual dining Cafe and Grocery offering delicious vegetarian food, desserts and coffee. It’s for people who are on a vegan, paleo, and or gluten-free diet. It’s not for meat lovers. We recommend their Mushroom Tapa and Pannacotta with Berry Compote.
9. Marufuku – Ortigas Center
Marufuku is a Japanese restaurant that serves a wide variety of Japanese food. They offer ramen, tempura, udon, teppanyaki, and more! It’s for people looking to satisfy a wide range of their Japanese cravings. It’s not for people looking for an upscale Japanese restaurant. We recommend their Chirashi Don and Beef Teriyaki Robata.
G/F The Crescent Bldg, 29 San Miguel Ave., Oranbo, Pasig
8. Locavore Kitchen x Drinks – Kapitolyo
Last month’s #9
Locavore is a homegrown restaurant that emphasises in the importance of sourcing ingredients locally. The dishes served are Filipino classics, with a French twist to them courtesy of Chef Mikel Zaguirre. It’s for people who love twists on their classic Filipino favorites. It’s not for people who want traditional Filipino dishes. We recommend like their Sizzling Sinigang, Kare-Kare Wings, and Lechon Oyster Sisig.
7. Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea – Ayala Malls the 30th
We can never have too much tea! Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea was actually inspired by and named after the founder’s grandmother. They specialise in old-fashioned Taiwanese tea made with freshly brewed ingredients straight from Taiwan. It’s for anyone who loves flavoured tea. It’s not for people looking for other tea favourites like Chai Tea or Thai milk tea. Their menu includes milk tea, tea lattes, flavoured tea, and sugar-cane drinks. We recommend their Yi Fang Signature Fruit Tea and their Brown Sugar Pearl series.
6. Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen – Ayala Malls The 30th
Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen was one of the South‘s biggest neighborhood secrets, but because good restaurants can’t hide forever, it is now a dining destination for authentic Italian eats. It’s for families and children who enjoy eating in a homey setting. It’s not for people who don’t like to brave the Southern commute. We recommend the Risotto Tartufo Funghi, Truffle Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti Seafood Olio, and Pizza Tabarnes. Our insider tip: You may request to have 1 pizza in 2 halves – each with a different flavor.
5. Tittos Latin BBQ & Brew – Kapitolyo
Last month’s #6
You’ll find more than just the classic South American favourites at this restaurant. Tittos Latin BBQ & Brew gives us South American food with a Filipino twist that’s why it’s for people who enjoy fusion cuisines. It’s not for people craving for the usual Filipino comfort food. We recommend their Arroz Negra, Nachos el Gigante, and Tittos Signature Steaks.
4. The Lost Bread – SM East Ortigas
Last month’s #9
The Lost Bread is a homegrown dessert cafe specialising in French toasts and milkshakes. Their name, ‘The Lost Bread’, is a direct translation of ‘pain de perdu’, the stale bread used to make French toast. It’s for people who enjoy breakfast food and have a sweet tooth. It’s not for people looking to cut down on their sugar intake. We recommend the Fried Mashed Potato Balls, Sinigang Beef Sukiyaki and Beef Tapa with Coffee Rice. For desserts, try their Blue Soft Serve, limited Matcha Flan and milkshakes.
3. Ba-Be-Q Korean Charcoal Grill – Metrowalk
Last month’s #3
Ba-Be-Q is the perfect place to satisfy your Korean cravings. Fire up the charcoal grill and cook your own Wagyu, Chicken, and or Pork with unlimited servings! It’s for groups looking for a good unlimited meal. It’s not for those who liked their meal served and ready to eat.
G/F Metrowalk, Meralco Ave, Ugong, Pasig
2. Kko Kko Home – Kapitolyo
Last month’s #1
Best known for their Cheese Fondue, Kko Kko reigns supreme keeping their number one spot in Pasig City. Kko Kko serves authentic Korean dishes from recipes by Grace Lee and her mom. It’s for people who enjoy traditional Korean food. It’s not for people looking for unlimited Korean grills. Their three-part menu includes Korean Fried Chicken, Korean Street Food, and Dosirak (Koren Lunchbox).
1. Shinsen Sushi Bar and Restaurant – Sapphire Bloc
Last month’s #10
Shinsen Sushi is a local establishment that serves authentic Japanese cuisine. They have a proudly Filipino staff trained professionally by Japanese chefs. Shinsen actually means “fresh” and that’s what you’ll expect when you get a taste of what they have in store. It’s for those who are craving for some authentic Japanese. It’s not for those craving for a fusion type of cuisine. We recommended their Beef Yakiniku, Japanese Panna cotta, Kari Kari Kari Yaki (crispy oysters), and an all time favourite, Ebi Tempura.
