The day of Oct. 4, before going to our girlfriend sister’s condo, Twinny and I got one thing in our bucketlist crossed out! This time, together with our dear friend, Hesi. :-)
But before reaching KFB, we’ve been through quite an adventure! Haha. Since we don’t know the directions on how to go there, we did some asking and voila! Rode a jeepney that is route to Boni Mandaluyong, and we told the driver to drop us at San Joaquin St.
When we reached San Joaquin St. we don’t know which way to go. From where we got off, we turned right and asked a pedicab driver where KFB is located. We’re on the wrong direction, so we came back to where the jeepney driver dropped us off and continued walking.
Look what Twinny did to Park because of exhaustion in carrying her not-so-heavy bag. Haha!
When you’ll visit the place this month, probably you will still encounter this. This is also the reason why we had a hard time finding KFB.
After passing all those road repairs, we finally saw KFB! At first, you’ll not notice the place since it just looked like a small sari-sari store and a typical carinderia. Also, there are no visible signage that can help you to locate it.
But don’t be deceive by the carinderia vibes of this eatery for they’ll let you experience your most unforgettable food-trip!
It was a hot sunny noon and thank goodness the crew of the store quickly offered us a water full of ice. Their tables are good enough for two people but an extra chair can be added so three can share. When going there with big groups, you can combine tables or ask for extras. Fortunately, we’re the only customer dining at that time, since some opted to take their orders out or they chose to eat at the extended store. In which you’re not in the street. As for us, we want to feel the “kanto” vibes so we stayed outside.
Their menu is quite simple and mostly, breakfast meals like pancakes, eggs benedict and silogs are offered. Hence, the name. But since it was lunch time, Hesi a.k.a Hanibunch and I decided to have rice meals while Twinny ordered mixed berries pancake.
You’ll have to wait for quite some time because they’ll prepare and cook your order. As it was served, you’ll be surprised on the plating. I swear by looking at the meal served right in front of you, you will forget that you are eating in an eatery located in the streets. It will be as if you’re dining in a fancy restaurant.
I ordered Honey Garlic Chicken (PHP90.00)
Twinny’s. Mixed Berries Pancake (PHP90.00)
Hanibunch’s. Batangas Beef Tapa (PHP90)
I was able to try the ones that Hanibunch and Twinny ordered and it was heavenly. As well as what I ordered, the honey garlic chicken. My favorite of them all was the mixed berries pancake. The feels when eating it! It was like there are fireworks in my mouth. When we get back, I’ll surely try other foods in their menu!
Kanto Freestyle Breakfast is located at San Joaquin St. Boni, Mandaluyong City. Their other branches are in Marikina and Kapitolyo, Pasig. They accept deliveries anywhere in the Metro, call them at 4002268. They also have a facebook, twitter and instagram account! Oha, so not your typical kanto eatery. ;-)
