I love exploring the restaurants in Kapitolyo. It gives me a fresh breathe of choices from the restaurants in the malls.
Since we live nearby, L and I told ourselves that we'll try all the restaurants in Kapitolyo. We've definitely eaten at more than 5 restaurants there but as much as we want to eat out often in Kapitolyo, we also have to schedule our visit there cos our weekends are really jammed.
When L picked me up in the office after our team building, we headed straight to Kapitolyo for dinner. The restaurant that we wanted to dine in was full so looked for another one.
We came across Open Kitchen, literally and figuratively.
I wasn't able to take a photo of the restaurant but it does give me a fresh vibe. There's a part of the restaurant that's open air. You can see right through the kitchen but not its entirety.
I wasn't that hungry so I ordered pasta. I don't remember the name of the pasta but it has pesto and bacon (?).
L ordered pork belly. It was so good! So good! This is a must try!
For appetizer, we ordered salad. I liked this because it has strawberries and mushrooms. And the mixed veggies are not your usual mixed greens.
One thing I noticed with Open Kitchen is that the chefs are usually the ones to serve the food. Then they make a little explanation on the food that we ordered.
We also ordered iced tea and this special drink that wasn't on the menu. Well, we were surprised when we got the bill because that special drink cost PhP200++ for a glass - a glass wine! For everything that we ordered, we paid PhP1,700++ for dinner. So, on average, each serving is about PhP450.00.
Despite their dishes being a little pricey, I see myself coming back to this restaurant. Their desserts sound yummy and if I wasn't full the night we dined here, I would have ordered dessert. I wan't to try their salted caramel cheesecake!
Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!
