Kapitolyo’s hidden nook is filled with great food and even better prices
The bustling village of Kapitolyo, Pasig City is a foodie haven.
There’s always something to satisfy every craving — whether you’re on a payday high or one of those I-gotta-survive-til-next-payday kind of day.
And thanks to The Round Table by Q Provisions, even a great buffet craving can be satisfied –without breaking the bank. For only PhP295 on weekdays and PhP350 on weekends, you get to enjoy a selection of finely curated dishes by Chef Mia Capay and her team.
We recently joined them at their “Superstar Weekend” buffet, where they had all the bestsellers from their daily spreads — Exclusively Yours Monday, Italian Tuesday, Asian Invasion Wednesday, Filipino Twist Thursday, and Roast Carving Friday — all in one day.
What’s on the menu
Cream of Roasted Squash The smoothest way to ease yourself into eat-all-you-can mood.
Q Salad with Q Dressing They say a colorful plate is a healthy plate. This vibrant salad is tangy and refreshing.
Chicken Tocino Maki with Garlic Chips Pinoy flavors served Japanese style.
Adobo Sa Mangga Just when you thought the Philippines’ humble adobo couldn’t get more Pinoy, The Round Table comes up with this soy sauce-free and vinegar-less Adobo sa Mangga (chicken adobo with mangoes). Their homemade bagoong (shrimp/fish paste) takes care of the saltiness, while the mangoes provide that tanginess. This is culinary innovation at its finest.
The Amazing Roast Beef Carvery Marinated overnight, slow-cooked for four to six hours, and eaten in minutes. Chef Mia’s über tender and tasty roast beef is perfect for the holidays. But it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to experience this piece of culinary perfection. Their roast beef is available everyday at the buffet.
Pasta Aglio Olio This simple-looking dish is quite a delightful surprise. If you don’t like white rice, this is a great carb substitute without overpowering the taste of other dishes.
Inihaw na Manok sa Saha Chef Mia recreated one of Andres Bonifacio’s favorite dishes: Inihaw na Manok sa Saha (roasted chicken on a banana trunk) and revolutionized it by serving it with Cerveza Gravy. Nothing but robust, strong flavors worthy of a national hero — a real hero.
Carrot Cake The cake is moist yet fluffy, the cream cheese frosting decadent. The crushed walnuts provide that added texture, making this dessert even better.
The Round Table, as quaint as it is, is also perfect for intimate gatherings with friends and family, especially this holiday season (although with its friendly rate, you can afford to enjoy their buffet anytime of the year).
The entire restaurant can be booked with just a minimum of ten paying guests. Q Provisions also caters events and parties, so make sure you call for ‘em this season.
The Round Table is located at 56 C&D East Capitol Drive, Brgy. Kapitolyo, Pasig City. They are open from Monday to Sunday. Lunch Service: 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.; dinner service: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. For reservations and inquiries, call (02) 706-1668.
