A Kapitolyo craving for the rainy season: Caution Hot’s noodle soups


Words & Photos by Beatrice Faicol

As the arrival of the rainy season leads us to take cover, our appetite for more soothing fare inspires us to find solace in a bowl of noodle soup. Among Kapitolyo’s eclectic selection of eats, buzz-worthy bowls can be found at Caution Hot on East Capitol Drive, a short leisurely walk from The Vantage by Rockwell Primaries.


The same menu that built a strong following at the restaurant’s first branch in Maginhawa brings the appetizing Asian heat to Kapitloyo. Amid a downpour, deliciousness abounds in Caution Hot’s choice of broths: Szechuan, Asam Laksa, and a crowd-pleasing ramen with a pork bone base, made even more savory with mushrooms and a fried egg topping. With each bowl comes a chance to customize broths to one’s preferred spice level. And for the calorie conscious: an all-veggie noodle soup that’s just as appetizing with silken tofu and vegetarian meat strips.

Beyond tailoring bowls to customers’ tastes, a choice of noodles is also on offer, from the healthier Japanese wheat noodle to thinner egg noodles. While each healing bowl, no matter the style or spice level, is satisfying, a sweet punctuation to hunger can be achieved in Caution’s bao bing, the famous shaved-ice dessert that mixes fruit and jellies, delightfully topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Of course, whatever the weather, dessert is a Kapitolyo must.
