Kanto Freestyle Breakfast: Not Your Typical Gourmet

I have been in Manila for more than two months for my training and haven't really explored much since the weather was really unpredictable. After pigging out with Ramil and Edgar of Pinas Muna, Mervs of Pinoy Adventurista and Eric of Byahilo in Pasig City, we decided to try this popular 24/7 gourmet "karinderya" (eatery) called Kanto Freestyle Breakfast (KBF) located in Mandaluyong. After braving the rains and almost near to our destination, we didn't expect that flood would force us to eat at Mercato Centrale in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig.


The weather was better the following day and I asked Ramil and Edgar if they wanted to have a very late brunch at Kanto Freestyle Breakfast. We met at Shaw Boulevard and tried another route going to the eatery only to get lost going around Mandaluyong City. Little did we know that the access road was under construction so we had to take a detour. Finally, we reached KBF at around past 3:00PM only to be informed by the staff that they are having their general cleaning and we had to wait until 4:00PM for the next shift of staff.

Since we were already there and didn't want to waste anymore gasoline, we decided to stay and rest for a while browsing through their menu. The menu have three (3) main categories: Freestyle Breakfast that includes all the available viands, the Kanto Boy Breakfast that includes garlic rice, 2 eggs cooked either sunny side-up or scrambled and tomato pesto added to the viands, and the Pancakes / French Toast / Atbp that includes the other choices including eggs benedict and omelette. Although their food are served in gourmet style, not a single dish costs more than P100.

In a little while, people suddenly arrived from all corners. Our orders were served one by one after 30 minutes and looked really enticing for something that is less than a hundred bucks. We were hoping that the more than one (1) hour wait was worth it.

I made a request for my omelette and asked that ham and cheese be added aside from tomatoes and onions. I forgot to tell the chef though to have the cheese be cooked together with the egg so that it will blend with the other ingredients.

The eatery including its extension was full the whole time we ate, this probably mean that we might need to make a reservation on our next visit. The food are good considering that they cost less than Php100 per meal. Service is quite par. One remark I just want to add is, who does Kanto Freestyle Breakfast endorse, Smart or Globe?

Try these other dishes too, each at less than Php 100.
