KANTO FREESTYLE BREAKFAST



For a lady who loves breakfast, hearing about Kanto opening a branch in Marikina made me restless. I just had to go there asap! And so asap we went. Hehe!

The lovely cabin stands on the corner of Aquilina and Col Divino streets, the biggest landmark would be the Marikina Engineering Office. Kanto is about 200m from there. (For you Marikenyos who did practice driving near MEO, you know the area, aminin!! Laging may nagpra-practice driving doon, kasama na ako, years ago.) Montalban, San Mateo and some SSS jeepneys pass by the place, so when you see it turn left to the Engineering Office, ready your eyes to the right and watch out for Kanto. Here is how it will look like:

 Ain't that a cute little cabin (beside this cabin is a spacious parking lot and car wash, too)

 The menu! I will be trying the freestyle breakfast next time (choosing what goes with what for my breakfast plate). For this visit, we tried the Kanto Boy breakfast sets.

 Simple place, gourmet food. VERY affordable prices. We're fans!
 
 The ideal breakfast drinks: Royal and Sprite (kids, do not try this at home)

My Kanto Boy plate: Vigan Longganisa (90 PhP) served with two eggs any style (I asked for scrambled eggs), garlic rice and tomato pesto.

Dadi's Kanto Boy plate of  Batangas Beef Tapa (90 PhP)

 I almost forgot to ask Dadi to take a photo of me... Hehe!

 Capping off the meal with some luscious fried Oreos (50 PhP)... Nyam nyam nyam!


All in all, we spent 260 Pesos for a yummy breakfast for two, drinks and dessert included. I can't wait to visit Kanto again and try the freestyle breakfast... and make you want to come here as well, of course ;-)

We have been KANTOFIED!!!

  3. Where else can I find a Kanto branch? I love the concept of 24/7 all breakfast. Best food to cure a hangover.

  13. Im from taytay pano ko pupunta sa marikina branch?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hi Ivory! from Taytay, you can get off Marcos HiWay na McDo, then walk sa footbridge, may sakayan ng Montalban- San Mateo dun... Take that jeep and then sabihin mo kay Manong na ibaba ka sa Marikina CEO (City Engineering Office), or pababa sa Aquilina (though I doubt alam nilang lahat ang street na yun). Anyway from CEO it's about three blocks na lang na lakad, Kanto Breakfast na. While walking look for Col Divino and Aquilina street signs, the cottage is right there. Re-opening ng Kanto Freestyle is targeted by November 2013 ;-)

    1. hi Chiela! from engineering office, 4 na kanto. Walk to the left. If facing the engineering office, to the right. You are in aquilina street... so as you walk (or drive or commute) you will see 5th st., then 4th st., then Bonifacio st., the Col. Divino na. you will notice this is where vehicles turn para mag concepcion. Kanto Freestyle is cottage-like, with an area for car wash din. ;-) Cheers!
