The Round Table's best-selling Carrot Cake (P1,800/whole)

My latest epicurean pursuit brought me to bond with a friend for brunch at a newly-opened all-you-can-eat tasting session restaurant in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. Such a foodie-thronged scene is a sweet spot. The district is famous for its inventive dining hubs and The Round Table is just one of the new ones that just opened in the area. For just P199 (for Facebook friends; at P295 regular rate), a guest can be entertained with a roster of inventive menu selections with signature dishes that include Beef Rolls, Q Salad, Adobo Sa Mangga, Roast Beef, Carrot Cake, and more.

From Bistro To Table

The Round Table (formerly known as Q Bistro) certainly was pleasurable for an early dining experience. The good news is that it can be equally memorable in other times of the day and different days of the week as it serves daily themed menus. Imagine being overwhelmed by such unpredictability in the metro where urban coma for dining out can happen regardless of the day!

I had the chance to personally chat with its Executive Chef Mia K. Capay who had her training at the Professional Culinary Institute (currently known as the French Culinary Institute). With her at the helm of the panoply of flavors, the restaurant is able to serve dining guests varied choices of Mongolian, Southern American, Italian, Filipino and Roast Carving.

Specialties Tasted

My appetite was definitely fulfilled with samplings of the restaurant’s specialties. I even had the chance to taste other dishes such as the Rustic Fish Fillet, Pork Hamonado, Chicken Tocino, and Pork Ragout. For starters, I loved the long plate of cheese-filled Potato Polpette that came with a complimenting dip. The sublime taste of the tasty balls gave me a boost to commence with my brunch and catch up with my friend about what we missed out on for the past year. The roast beef (deliciously slow roasted and available every Friday and Sunday) I had with my friend were of belly parts that the restaurant’s kitchen staff attentively assigns as such instead of already receiving them in portions. My friend even quipped that it tasted a lot better than the one he recently had in Singapore’s prestigious Marina Bay Sands.

The East Capitol Drive dining hub can seat less than 30 people and can offer families and friends a pleasant ambiance for good conversations. Over comfort food and subdued (almost pearlescent) lighting, the experience is enhanced. The dining area is elegantly separated from the restaurant’s centrepiece – the “round table” – where the dishes can be obtained. Patrons can even book the whole place for special events at an affordable rate under its catering service called Q Provisions.

Catering Expertise

The personalized service of Q Provisions is also a good fit for homes and offices. Same-day catering can be had for a little more than P500 (minimum of 15 people). The variety is inclusive of soup, poultry, pork, veggie, rice, dessert and iced tea. Its Pearl Lunch/ Dinner Buffet (P400; minimum of 50 people) can be a pleasurable source of intercontinental dishes, fusion-oriented meals, oriental delights, and more. There are other alternatives to choose from when it comes to catering packages, so calling the restaurant will be wise to do for further inquiries. Food deliveries are also done within the Ortigas and Kapitolyo areas.

Make your reservations now at The Round Table and be surprised by its modernized set of international flavors and favorite traditional Filipino dishes. I will surely return there with my family to celebrate my mom’s birthday soon.
