I was asked to also review Kape Pilato's food. I've been to a site where it posted several photos of Kape Pilato, and frankly I was enamored. When I saw the menu selection it blew me off my chair. The name might suggest it to be a coffee shop with a Pinoy twist.
When we finally got our order from Kape Pilato. I saw that they don't only serve big but they don't skimp on ingredients, even if it is a home delivery order.

So, I went on searching about it, blog hopping and surveying Google map for it. After which we planned to visit the place.
It's located at San Marcelino St., in Malate, Manila. You have to be driving from Paco, Manila to get to this street, because it's one way.
Located at the ground floor of Orange Nest Hotel, its a quite place to have a meal and of course get your boost of jolt with their selection of local coffee concoctions.
From casual to intimate to very bodacious family and friends gatherings, they can appease you with what it is you need. There are several nooks, or something like special function rooms best for professional meetings or just mingling with barkadas and colleagues.
We began with a huge bowl of Tortilla/Nacho Salad. From it's namesake, it's a salad mixins of nacho chips, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, onions, topped with Mexican chilli, drizzled over ceasar salad dressing. Let me tell you how one can really get full with these alone. It is served on a huge bowl, and the play of the crisp lettuce and chips with the dressing and the chilli plus cubes upon cubes of cheddar cheese. Gloryyyyy!
Well, if you see a photo of a plate of Carbonara, you have to guess, my kids should be with me. Always, a mommy's safe order for the little ones. Pasta Carbonara. Also one good way to just a good dish of it is through my pack (that's what I call the family ready to devour a whole table of grubs, hahaha). And guess what, I went hoe one happy momma. They loved the creaminess of the sauce which clung to the pasta. The pasta cooked al dente, it had loads of bits of bacon, and a gorgeous mound of ground parmesan cheese. Two kids and two kid at heart shared with a serving of these. So more or less, this is good for four people.
But there's always our Kuya Darren to take it home too. So we just had it taken out. After all, with the serving they have we are already good to go.
But of course we can not let a coffee shop be passed by without having to try something from their coffee selections. Luckily, they do have a lot under Dessert Coffee. We tried the Dark Chocolate Truffle Sauce. It's a frappe, a cold coffee shake with Dark chocolate bits, cold cream and chocolate sauce.
