Inside Gastro Park Kapitolyo: A look at all 15 food stalls
MANILA, Philippines – Where can you find an aligue-shrimp slaw sandwich, ice cream made using liquid nitrogen, a gigantic shake with cotton candy on top, and a burger patty squeezed between glazed doughnut buns – all in one place?
Already a popular spot for diners looking for different options, Kapitolyo is also home to the Gastro Park, where 15 stalls serve unique and interesting eats catering to every taste or fancy.
The dishes are affordable – you can get a full meal at around P100 – but you may want to bring a group of friends and order plenty to share; that way, you get to try a selection from the stalls.
Though not everything you order may be to your taste, the fun is in trying out the various combinations and creations from every outlet. And if you've ever been out to dinner with a group where everyone wants something else, this is a great solution.
We've tried out a few of Gastro Park's offerings (not everything – there are too many options!), photographed below. Here's a good look at what the 15 stalls have to offer:
