Top 15 Most Popular Restaurants in Kapitolyo Pasig City 2014

I’ve got more Kapitolyo restaurants in my latest article, 50 Restaurants in Try in Metro Manila Before 2015 Ends.

Let’s continue the Most Popular Restaurants series! While Quezon City and Makati City are foodie hubs on its own unique cuisines and specialties, anyone will say that Kapitolyo in Pasig City is an area that houses some of the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants, that eventually branched out in other cities as a result of their popularity in Kapitolyo.

2014 helms a year where the food industry reached its peak, with Kapitolyo in Pasig City leading the pack. Let’s take a look at the restaurants that made a name in the industry and raised the bar for other areas to compete with Kapitolyo’s luster for food adventurers and gourmands.

How to Locate the Best Restaurants in Kapitolyo, Pasig City

It’s good to know that Kapitolyo has two main streets, the East Drive and West Drive. East Drive caters to more budget friendly and affordable restaurants, while West Drive will be better off for special occasions and romantic dates. Here’s a Map I’ve created to accompany you in your Kapitolyo food trip. 🙂
