Food Trippin' Boni: Kanto Freestyle Breakfast

Ever since Julianne posted her blog entry about Kanto Freestyle Breakfast, I have been begging her to go there and eat. Yes, the inggitera in me strikes again, I know.

Located at San Joaquin Street in Boni, the place is quite familiar with me since I had been near the area sometime this year when we went there for Lime 88. It was lunch time on a Friday and from Makati, we took a cab going there. It was not that far and traffic is light at that hour. Spare those areas which was currently closed due to road constructions.

The place is not that noticeable at first since it just looked like a small sari-sari store and eatery. There were only a few seats available in the sidewalk and there are no visible signage anywhere, except for a large tarpaulin a few houses away. Definitely, this place is not you are expecting but you'll be surprised in what it offers those hungry customers like us.

This is how it looks like when you go there

It was a hot sunny noon and thank goodness they have a fan set outside. The tables are good enough for two people but an extra one can be added so three can share. You can also opt to combine tables for bigger groups, but it will surely crowd the place. Thank goodness we were the only customer dining in at that time, since some go for take-outs.

This is where you order your food.

Their menu is quite simple and most are breakfast food like pancakes and silogs. Since it was lunch time, we decided to have the rice meals, however, there are a lot there that I do want to try. Maybe next time, but for now, our feast that noon is the Batangas Tapa and Tocino with some pancakes for dessert.

Their Menu

You'll wait quite while for the food to be served as they cook it when you order. As it was served, I was surprised on the plating. It was as if we are not in the side walk of San Joaquin as the presentation was like that on an expensive restaurant. It was really appetizing and pretty at the same time.

We had the Kanto Boy Breakfast which is served with two eggs freestyle, Garlic Rice and Tomato Pesto. I had the Batangas Tapa while Maye had the tocino.

Tocino with Scrambled Eggs (PHP90)

The Batangas Beef Tapa was good and so was the Tocino. I opted with scramble eggs while Julianne had the sunny side up. The tocino was nothing extra ordinary. I prefer the tapa better. It was juicy and tender. I guess the nice presentation did a really good job as we eat with our eyes first.

The tomato pesto was something new to me, and surprisingly, it goes well with the egg and the savory meat. With the garlic rice, it is a good combination. We immediately finished the whole plate.

Fluffy Pancake with Goya and Chocnut Ganache (PHP90)

For dessert, we had the Fluffy Pancake with Goya and Chocnut Ganache. It is a stack of moist pancakes topped with a generous amount of Goya chocolate ganache, syrup and sprinkled with a lot of Chocnut. It was really good and yummy and perfect for dessert. I do not know how to describe it more. You just need to go there and have a taste of it too.

Overall, the food here was good. I hope I could taste more on their menu. However, for the few dishes I tried, I was satisfied, not only with the presentation but also with the good taste. The big plus here is the price. It is very cheap and affordable. It was just a bit far but you could manage going there.

Kudos to the chef owners of Kanto Free Style Breakfast, as well as Lime 88. This is a must go-to place.
