Are you craving for breakfast meal at the middle of the day or the wee hours of the night? Fret not because Kanto Freestyle Breakfast is there to serve you. Currently opened 24 hours in four locations:- Mandaluyong, Kapitolyo, Libis and Marikina.
Kanto Freestyle Breakfast is a hit to many because of the quality of food as well as its reasonable pricing which are currently below PHP100 as of writing.
This restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Arch Juanta, currently Chef de Partie at Brentwood Hotel, New Zealand. He also worked as Senior Chef for M Cafe and Paseo Uno in Mandarin Hotel Manila, and Corporate Chef for other big food establishments. Thus, his experience is indeed vast to be able to come up with his own creative menu incorporating Filipino ingredients as well.
For the ambiance, I am able to visit only the Kapitolyo and the Libis branch. For Kapitolyo, it is a garage converted to a restaurant and can be really full of customers during lunch time until around 3:00 in the afternoon which only shows that many keeps coming back for their good food. Try it for yourself. For Libis branch, price can be a few pesos higher because of the location which is now occupying 2 spaces in a span of 6 months.
In August 2014, they have updated their menu with new offerings from drinks, pancakes, sandwiches and congee.
Kanto Freestyle Breakfast New Menu:
For the drinks, I prefer the Iced Mocha and Iced Latte for they are not that sweet and the bitterness of coffee is still there. While the Karamel Frappe-eh is too sweet for me but maybe will do for others who prefer their coffee to be sweet.
From all that was served to us, Open Face Longganisa with Caramelized Onion (PHP 95.00) is my favourite because of the complimenting taste of the salty longganisa and sweet onions. A suggestion could be to serve it with rice, I used to eat hotdogs with onions so this could be another version.
For the Ube White Chocolate Ganache Pancake (PHP 95.00), the white chocolate has overpowered the Ube already.
For the sandwiches, Croque Monsieur (PHP 85.00) and Croque Madame (PHP 85.00) are both upgraded versions of Ham and Cheese in three layered sandwich with either tomatoes or eggs on top. This is recommended for your heavy snack.
The Bacon Congee with Poached Egg (PHP 85.00) is indeed a good addition to the menu, loved that crunchy bacon is added to our regular congee.
