Kanto is Tagalog colloquial term for a street corner and it is often associated with a not-so-good connotation because it is where most bystanders stay. On the contrary, Kanto Freestyle Breakfast has been receiving a lot of good feedbacks from social media. Many people who have tried their offerings share how satisfying the meals they serve are. It intrigued me so much that I wanted to pass by and try their all breakfast menu (yes, they are open 24/7). However, their locations stopped me from my tracks. Their branches are in Mandaluyong, Libis, and Marikina all of which are definitely far from where I live. Fortunately, I got an invite from Ross of Wazzup Pilipinas to try one of the Kapitolyo Pasig restaurants. I found a good reason to tread all the way to Pasig now.

Kanto Freestyle Breakfast is the brainchild of Chef Juanta. Their newest food offerings were presented to the bloggers last August 7, 2014. We got all excited to try the dishes and drinks they offer. I apologize in advance for not being able to provide the prices for these dishes, because they are all still new and their menu has not been updated yet (at least as of this writing.)

A lot of restaurant in Kapitolyo offers a good yet pocket-friendly meal!

Kanto Freestyle Sandwiches

Open-Faced Chicken Longganisa

The Open-Faced Chicken Longganisa Sandwich with Hollandaise Sauce has caramelized onion and onion leeks. Well, I have a special relationship with Hollandaise sauce, so I totally love this sandwich.

This restaurant in Kapitolyo has a variety of sandwiches to offer for diners.

Croque Monsieur

Meanwhile, the Croque Monsieur is a French ham and cheese sandwich whereas their version of Croque Madame has egg on top. According to the legend, the egg on top of the Croque Madame is like an old-fashioned woman’s hat. Therefore, this sandwich is for a girl and the Croque monsieur is for a boy. These sandwiches were average mainly because of the bread that they’ve used.

Croque Monsieur never goes wrong to this restaurant in Kapitolyo!

Croque Madame

If you want to have other ways on how your sandwich will be served, Kanto Freestyle Breakfast also has Croque Madame.

Kanto Freestyle Rice

Bacon Congee

The Bacon Congee topped with Poached Egg truly surprised us, because more often than not, the add-ons of Congee are twalya, pork, and boiled eggs. The idea was not bad at all, because the combination is great. The Arroz a la Cubana tastes great, too but it wasn’t memorable.

As Filipinos were greatly influenced by the Chinese cuisine, this congee from one of the restaurants in Kapitolyo has a twist with bacons trips!

Arroz a la Cubana

Banana never goes out in the picture with Arroz a la Cubana. Try this from Kanto Freestyle Breakfast, a restaurant in Kapitolyo that is frequented by the people around Pasig.

Kanto Freestyle Pancakes

Blueberry and Strawberry Pancake

Of course, the breakfast would not be complete without pancakes! Basically, their pancake variations almost taste the same, so it’s really just a matter of choosing which toppings you like. I chose the Blueberry and Strawberry pancakes. What would you choose?

Your favorite blueberry in your pancake never goes out of style. Kanto Freestyle Breakfast, a restaurant in Pasig surely put this on their menu!

Goya Chocnut Ganache Pancake

Your chocnut comes a surprise as a topping in pancake here in Kapitolyo Freestyle Breakfast.

Choco Chip Pancake

This restaurant in Kapitolyo has a lot of choices for pancakes. Better visit them now to try for yourself.

Ube White Chocolate Pancake

Ube White Chocolate should not come to last for Filipinos as one of their favorite delicacies.

Kanto Freestyle Dessert

Grilled Suman with Ube White Chocolate and Goya Ganache

Grilled Suman with Ube White Chocolate and Goya Ganache is essentially a common rice cake in the Philippines, but with a twist. Kanto puts ube, white chocolate, and Goya to add sweetness to the dish.

The grilled suman comes in style with Goya ganache as sauce. Surely this is the only restaurant in Kapitolyo that suman is plated as pretty as this.

Toasted Ensaymada, Spanish Bread and Pan de Regla with Creme de Anglaise

Meanwhile, the Toasted Ensaymada, Spanish Bread and Pan de Regla with Creme de Anglaise have a classy aura.

Who could have thought that pan de regla can be luxuriously plated from this restaurant in Kapitolyo?


Kanto Freestyle Location

The place is a garage turned dine-in restaurant which makes it quite unnoticeable. In fact, I went beyond the other end of the street, missing the establishment. Good thing I called Geeky Kitch to help me locate the place. I arrived in the venue in the afternoon, but the lights were still not on. The place transformed into a chic restaurant by night, though. Unfortunately, the place is not air-conditioned.

Visit this restaurant in Kapitolyo now!

More and more people were coming in (perhaps it’s a go-to place after work or school), so we threw ourselves outside to give other diners a place to sit. Moreover, the diners that came that day were 70% yuppies and 30% students. From what I have seen on their menu, the price is affordable and the serving is fair. The staff would greet you happily. It was had this call center environment, because it’s always morning. Kanto was a hit for me, and I’m sure you’ll like it, too!

While this restaurant in Kapitolyo looks so humble, people keep on coming here in Kanto Freestyle Breakfast.
