Beyond a destination for bites that don’t break the bank, Kapitolyo has become a capital of diverse dining, from local to foreign cuisine.
Even more convenient, Gastro Park is your go-to place for many a craving and cuisine. Since it opened last year, this new addition to Kapitolyo has taken food crawls to a whole new level, offering a variety of cheap eats in a festive setting. Open daily from 12PM to 12AM, it’s perfect for an afternoon alfresco lunch or after-work drinking session with friends.
To prove that you can explore a world of taste on the cheap, The Start serves up a bunch of Gastro Park offerings for just 1,000 pesos.
Brickplate’s Sweet Yet Cheesy pizza is pretty straightforward. The “cheesy” part is from three kinds of cheese, and the sweet? The unusual but delicious drizzle of honey. It’s their bestseller for a reason. But to make this meal even sweeter, you can pair it with their Louisiana Pasta with a smattering of Cajun shrimps.
Para is the first jeepney food truck in Manila that serves Filipino sandwiches with a tasty twist. All of their burgers come with a side of homemade ube and saba chips.
We first tried out their savory The Filipino Burger which consists of grilled 1/3 mixed longganisa patty, melted slice of cheddar, singkamas slaw, and Para’s homemade barbecue sauce.
Another must-try: a Double Adobo burger made of shredded chicken adobo, pork adobo flakes, fried egg, crunchy garlic flakes, and their homemade green mango atchara.
- Sweet Nothing
The perfect way to end a Gastro Park food crawl is to sweeten things up with Sweet Nothing’s dessert beverages: hybrid indulgences to beat the summer heat.
Their Molten Lava Cake shake is made with 100% chocolate while their Strawberry Shortcake shake packs a touch of vanilla with a cloud of cotton candy on top.
