When you want some chill place and yet you don't want to go to the overrated cafes, then check out Estos Kitchen + Cafe in Guagua, Pampanga. It's the perfect 'tambayan' when you just want to hang out for a quick coffee or spend quality time during lunch or dinner.
Estos Kitchen + Cafe generously opens its doors during the 1st Instameet here in Pampanga. They made great food for all the participants. Below are some of their delicious meals. Not to mention these are super affordable too.
The paintings around the restaurant were proudly made by Kapampangan artists. The owner must be an advocate of local artists' talents. Good job!
They first served us salads which disappeared in an instant. I love their Mixed Green Salad as the taste is unique and it's not your ordinary kind of salad.
Mixed Green Salad - P125.00
Classic Caesar Salad P99.00
I like the effort they out in their rice. It's smells nice and I like that it's sticky like the Japanese rice.
Umami Rice - P70.00
I absolutely love their chicken. If there's one thing in the menu that I would order again, this would be it. Better than the iconic 'chicken joy'. The skin was goig to crispy yet tender and the meat was so soft. You'll also have to look forward in tasting the sauce that comes with it.
Southern Fried Chicken - 1pc. P115.00, 2pcs. P165.00
Classic Carbonara- P135.00
Haven't tried most of their pizza but I heard from my colleagues that it's truly nice. I was just too full to take another bite for this came a little late after the rice. Oh carbs!
Four Cheese - P219.00
Shawarma - P260.00
Margherita - P 175.00
Breakfast - P255.00
I changed my mind now on what I said about the Southern Chicken. That will be number two and this ribs will be number one instead. The Short Rib is the counterpart of the steak that I wish to have during the tour but failed to taste so,
Salmon with Beurreblanc Sauce - P150.00
15 hrs. RedWine Braised Short Rib - P245.00
For dessert, they have something unique like the Taho Ice Cream. They put a twist on the regular taho you have every morning. Especially a must-try!
Taho Ice Cream - P55.00
Skillet Cookie Dough - P99.00
The meal wouldn't be complete without the drinks. I prefer their Arnold Palmer. I also like the Pandan but since it isn't as sweet as I want it to be. But if you want something that feels so refreshing and healthy, go for the latter.
Arnold Palmer - P45.00
Pandan Tea - P45.00
Address: Ferdiz Bldg., San Pedro Guagua, Pampanga
Our Estos experience was truly special because of the restaurant's support on the first IG Meet here in Pampanga. It was our pleasure to taste their delectable dishes. I finally found a new spot in Guagua. I will surely recommend this to all my friends around the area.
