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.
