Last Friday, Momo and I sneak in a little date night at Gastro Park at Kapitolyo, Pasig City. I've been wanting to dine here since I was pregnant and finally find the time to do so. Yay!
You will be instantly amuse at the entrance of Gastro Park because of (1) the swing that they intentionally put there for picture taking purposes and (2) the flower/grass and abstract walls that are very instagrammable! Being a park and considering the weather here in the Philippines, you would think dining here would be inconvenient, well they proved me otherwise. The place is well ventilated, i didn't actually feel that I was in an open area the whole time I was eating. Forgot to get a whole picture of the place, sorry I was too excited to order food and am really starving. Will ensure to take a photo when I go back.
So we tried out four food stalls:
They offer Japanese inspired rice toppings, maki and other Japanese side dishes at a pretty affordable price. I tried their Pork Tonkatsu, it is tasty although it didn't taste like Japanese. Considering the taste and the serving, it is quite affordable.
They offer deliciously curated Indian cuisine. If you love spicy food, this is a place for you. We ordered the Beef Masala Curry with pita bread and pico de gallo. I really love the mix of spice on the beef, it's like your taste bud is fully satisfied at first bite but you still want more. What I did not like is that there was too much oil on the pita bread. I have yet to try their other meals, can't wait!
It was a little late for us when we found out that they are offering unlimited shrimp tempura for only PHP199 if you avail of their rice for PHP50. You are reading it right PHP249 for an unlimited tempura!!! Since I'm allergic to shrimp, I just tried their other very unique product, BACON FRIES!!! For only PHP100, you can have four large strips of crispy bacon fries dipped in special jalapeno sauce. Hmmmm... yum!
Happy customer here! I know I said four stalls but I forgot where we bought that Juice in a Fish Bowl drink.
So many reasons to come back, maybe next time will bring Little N! <3 p="">3>
How's your Friday night going so far? Hope you're having a blast! Gonna join my family's slumber party. 'Til the next one!
