“Quality food made affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Try one of their best-sellers "Batangas Beef Tapa" for just PhP90! Very affordable yet, the quality of food is not compromised. It tastes even better!

“Gourmet Filipino Food with a Twist all under Php100”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We went to their new Libis branch which is open 24/7 yipee! Their rice meals are served with Tomato Pesto so that's tomato with pesto sauce and it tastes amaaazing! Their tapa is one of the best and their champorado is great! I ordered a side of Tomato Pesto since I can't get enough of it for only Php30! Their drinks are great too and all are under Php50. I didn't like the Mixed Berry Pancakes but I loved the one with Goya Ganache and ChocNut bits. Too bad I don't work in Libis anymore. I'm in love with their food.

Cons for their Libis branch:
Their small seats makes your butt hurt.
It's such a small and cramped space.
Their service time needs to improve.
Their staff don't have much training.
Limited parking

Pros:
Great Food
Great Price
Free Parking

I will definitely go back there again.

“Love it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

What I love about Kanto Freestyle is the creativity of their theme. It's literally in a "Kanto" -a Tagalog term for street/ avenue. You really have to dine in the street. Anyway, it is a 24hr eatery so it really is convenient! What i dont like though is the location. If you are not familiar in the Mandaluyong area, you will really get lost. We, ourselves need to use a gps in order to reach the place. A must try: Honey lemon chicken, Tapa, Fried Oreos and their pancakes!

“Don't expect too much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Ordered 2 of their kanto boy breakfast (vigan longganisa and batangas beef tapa). Kanto Boy breakfast comes with garlic rice, 2 eggs (you get to choose how you'd like the eggs done) and 2 slices of tomato with pesto sauce. Wanted to try out their dessert (fried oreo or homemade donut with goya and chocnut ganache) but the only dessert available that time was the pancake ("Madumi po kasi yung oil"/ "The oil was dirty" said one of the servers) so we decided to just have iced coffee.
Despite the fact that the place was jam-packed at 10 in the morning, we didn't wait that long for our food to be served. Halfway through our meal, we did a follow-up on our drinks. Then another follow-up. And another (by then we asked for 2 glasses of water as well). Drinks of the other customers who came after us have been served already while our drinks, not even the water, have not been given despite the numerous follow-up.
Finally we finished our food and decided to ask for our bill and to just have the drinks cancelled if they haven't prepared it.
After about 10 minutes, our water and what appeared to be our iced coffee arrived. I expected it to be in a highball glass with ice cubes but it was ice-blended placed in a goblet. And instead of a straw, it came with a teaspoon. Seriously? How do you expect us to drink that when you can still see chunks of uncrushed ice? So disappointing.
But then again for such a cheap price, you shouldn't be expecting a lot. I just hope that they would try to look into this and have someone in-charge (like a manager or at least a team leader).
