10 Things I Will Miss About Kapitolyo

Moving again. It’s still something I am strangely looking forward to, although certainly not to all the packing that comes with it. I’ve moved a lot since I was 19 so I can safely say I’m an expert at dumping all my clothes in several pieces of garbage bags (haha!), but I’ve never become so attached to a neighborhood as I have to Kapitolyo. Yes, I will not miss the house, but the neighborhood. You see, Kapitolyo, Pasig, is a combination of quiet residential and bustling food corner. We live in a sort of cul-de-sac with no annoying sounds during the day and only the singing love birds coming from our neighbors across the street. It almost feels like living in the province, except when you turn right down the road, you enter the busy East Capitol drive and you are immediately thrust in the middle of foodie paradise. Kapitolyo is not just all about food though, so I’ve compiled the top 10 things I will miss about Kapitolyo (in no particular order):

    1. running in Capitol Commons
    2. beef ramen at RamenCool
    3. Cris’ healing hands at Regent Spa, Ace Hotel
    4. burgers and buffalo wings at Charlie’s Grill
    5. sausage platter, bacon slab, beef stew, truffle mushroom pasta at Poco Deli

    6. the Man-Sandwich at Mad Marks

    8. tapa and longganisa breakfast at Milky Sunny

    1. very close proximity to banks
    2. Santi’s at Capitol Commons

We had finally tried Ninak and while the food is good, I can’t say that I will miss it. Ninak's Bagoong Rice   Ninak's Pinakbet with Bagnet

  1. Having moved flats for 3-4 times in a span of 4 years makes me no stranger to packing and unpacking, and I do feel the same way with missing a certain neighborhood (and the fooood! i once lived near a foodie’s haven in taipei but i have to move because of my new job). Happy moving! Hope you’ll like your new place!

    p.s. I searched the Byrd’s Turn Turn Turn in Youtube and the song was indeed speaking to me 🙂
