Kanto Freestyle in Makati Avenue

It’s a Filipino concept diner that brings you Pinoy local breakfasts, street style.

A few of my colleagues have repeatedly mentioned Kanto Freestyle.

I was only able to visit it this week when Ez and I needed a late dinner fix. Since Makati Avenue caters to night life and after party eats, Kanto Freestyle is also open until late. If I’m not mistaken it’s even open 24-hours.

Where is Kanto Freestyle in Makati?

Kanto Freestyle’s Makati  branch is located at the end of P. Burgos Avenue and Makati  Avenue, a few steps near J.P. Rizal Avenue. As far as I know they have a prior branch in Kapitolyo, Pasig City that actually started the buzz.

Kanto Freestyle in Makati is located at the end of P. Burgos and Makati Avenue. It’s already a few steps to J.P. Rizal Avenue.

People might get confused since Kanto is located at the corner of the two avenues.

P. Burgos and Makati Ave. meet twice: one near Jupiter Avenue and the other one near J.P. Rizal.

What’s special with Kanto Freestyle

I believe it’s positioned as a place to get meals after tipsy friends end the night out. That’s why, they’d be open until the wee hours in the morning.

But, more than that, their menu is designed so you can get a taste of Pinoy mix and match diner breakfast experience. You can get some bacon with a classic Pinoy Tinapa (smoked fish) topped with Herbed tomatoes, some eggs– name it and add it to your heart’s content.

… With which, I’ll make sure to take a photo of their custom menu when I go back, okay.

What we ordered

Ez was hungry. She decided to go for a rice meal. I was opting to be a bit more conservative, it was already late.I thought I needed something (subjectively) just enough for a midnight snack.

So my friend here orders crisped Kanto Freestyle Fried Pork Belly. What a Pinoy classic to stare at for a midnight snack.

Ez orders Kanto Freestyle’s Fried Pork Belly (Php 110). It’s an everyday Pinoy street style classic.

After that, her Grilled Suman gets served. It’s a Filipino native snack dessert. It’s made of glutinous rice drizzled with chocolate and ube halaya (I missed the ube in the photo, sad).

She also decides on having a native grilled suman (Php 85) for dessert.  We shared them but boy, was that was h-e-a-v-y.

As I was saying, I was on the decoy to order something light. I didn’t want to drowse off while finishing off a website project when I get home. Apparently, it’s not what you go to Kanto Freestyle for.  Continue reading

Why are you Clueless Commuter?

Traveling without a specific destination seems to be in the genes.

For one, I just know that when I go to a place, there’s a lot to uncover. Then, you will know where to go.

It’s nice hopping on a bus, and travelling a round trip ride.

There are also times when I’m faced with a difficult decision, I hop on a bus and wait for it to go for a roundtrip. By doing so, I find time to think; I learn a new route; and this assures me that in life, I will not easily get lost.

Also, Clueless Commuter does adventure traveling to relieve stress. Going to places one has never been to releases endorphins! I do it for the thrills, although, it could also be in the genes.

Maybe it started during childhood

I was raised to commute. We owned a car, but my father made sure we knew how to go about safely and independently. My father always told us that we’ll never get lost if we look for the main roadways. This was before Google Maps was up our fingertips.

Jeepney baby

Here’s Clueless Commuter chillin’ with my late grandma in a jeepney.

I grew up in Puerto Princesa City, in Palawan, Philippines. It’s a suburban city in a rural town. I wasn’t born there, it wasn’t my first home, but I finished elementary in Palawan.
