CAPI­TOL COOL

Real Living (Philippines) - - Real Estate Listing -

Kapitolyo has come a long way from be­ing part of the for­mer pro­vin­cial capi­tol of Rizal (hence the name). Here are the perks of liv­ing in this area:

THE AC­CES­SI­BIL­ITY. Kapitolyo is tech­ni­cally in Pasig, yet its out­skirts strad­dle Man­daluy­ong. It is within spit­ting dis­tance from Or­ti­gas CBD and is a short dis­tance from C5, thus mak­ing it ac­ces­si­ble to Que­zon City, Makati, and even Ala­bang.

THE FOOD. Barangay Kapitolyo has be­come a foodie des­ti­na­tion of sorts, from West and East Capi­tol Drives with its faith­ful haunts Three Sis­ters and Café Juanita, to hip­ster 16 United Street’s con­tainer van eater­ies, and all the old and new restos such as Poco Deli, Cab Café, Char­lie’s, Wooden Spoon, Mama Rosa, Lo­ca­vore, plus so much more.

ALL THE STUFF YOU CAN DO. There is Capi­tol Com­mons and the spank­ing new Es­tan­cia Mall (more restos!), but you can do ev­ery­thing in Kapitolyo with­out leav­ing the neigh­bor­hood. Buy your gro­ceries and get your green tea fix at Pi­o­neer Cen­ter, take a dip at Ace Wa­ter Spa, do yoga at Ur­ban Ashram, shop for dé­cor at Heima, and have your meet­ings at Co.Lab shared of­fices, all at 3 Brixton.
