I’ve always been curious about Kanto Freestyle Breakfast. They serve stuff that the snooty, glitzy-patooty food blogs don’t write about, LOL. Think about blueberry pancakes, eggs benedict and croque monsieur served at dirt-cheap prices. Meaning….below one hundred pesos!
Fortunately, I was in Eastwood City a few days ago. Their branch at the Intrepid Plaza in C5-Libis is right before the entrance to Eastwood. I was happy as bee because finally, I was going to try something that my friends have been recommending to me for a long time (one of those instances where I fell behind in foodspotting, hehe).
The place was so nondescript you wouldn’t even notice it if you don’t look too closely. The view from where I sat: “Love My Six Pack So Much I Cover It With a Layer of Fat” 🙂
Everything that my daughters and I ordered cost P99, though the most expensive items on the menu were P115. Kanto’s appeal is how they inject the gourmet touch to the dishes, even while being affordably-priced.
The open-faced longganisa sandwich had lots of onions and generous drizzles of pesto and cheese sauce.
The three stacks of Goya Chocnut Ganache Pancakes were a treat, mostly because of the finger-lickin’ toppings. Couldn’t have enough of this. A must-order when you’re in Kanto.
Bacon, eggs and French toast. A bit tiny in my opinion, but one can always order extra.
The fried rice with tuyo, white cheese, eggs and tomato pesto were generously served. It was my first time to encounter such a combination with the dried fish…click pala 🙂
Overall I wouldn’t hesitate to eat in Kanto Breakfast … if only there was a location near me. They serve comfort food with the extraordinary touch, and that’s a good thing.
