Chicken BBQ Corn Pizza by Buffalo Swing Cafe

You may know Pasig City to be the home of Kapitolyo, a popular dining district of international flavors among foodies. What many don't know is that just a 20 to 30-minute drive away is a community at the city proper where homegrown dining institutions can also be found. One of them is the local favorite Buffalo Swing Cafe (BSC), a neighborhood-style restaurant that's located along Dr. Sixto Avenue in Caniogan, just past the Riverfront Residences if you're coming from the direction of Rizal High School. From Rosario or Ugong, it's easily a 10-minute drive away.

For the past year, more and more Pasig City residents trooped to Buffalo Swing Cafe for its pizza, pasta and wings. From time to time, young couples and students have also found the restaurant to be a great hangout over desserts and milkshake. As for patrons, some of them dine at least twice a week just to satiate their craving for unique chicken wing flavors that BSC is best known for. The best-seller is probably the irresistible Spicy Salted Egg Wings.

As a long-time resident of the city, I've seen a lot of hole-in-the-wall dining joints close down only after a year of operation. BSC, for some bizarre reason (at least for those who have not tried it yet), still stands today near the congested city center unchallenged not even by fast food chain quality food. The community palate seems to still gravitate towards home-cooked and uniquely crafted dishes, all of which BSC offers.

Here are three exciting reasons why Buffalo Swing Cafe works as a dining spot in cutthroat Pasig City:

Honey Soy Wings
Butter Parmesan Wings
Spicy Salted Egg Wings
1. Unique Chicken and Pasta Flavors

For the longest time, its Butter Parmesan-flavored wings took the spotlight among diners. When the crowd-favorite Spicy Salted Eggs Wings became available, it became the star. For some, a great alternative to the two is the oriental-tasting Honey Soy Wings which brings any local foodie kitchen memories of home-cooked meals. The sesame seeds are just something extra on top of the solid flavor. If you're after intense spicy flavors, though, the Hot Buffalo Swing is highly recommended.

Shrimp Pesto
To make your dining more hefty, you can order the health buff-fave Shrimp Pesto or the Mac 'N' Cheese which is popular with kids.

Should you and your friends have a need to indulge on a 40-piece tray of BSC's chicken wings or pasta for a special occasion, the restaurant has party packs. Simply contact the phone number at the bottom of this article to order.

2. Extraordinary Pizza Flavors

BSC has a panoply of pizza flavors from Pepperoni to Bacon and Mushroom, but one that's fast becoming a must-order by diners is its Chicken BBQ Corn Pizza. Ask any Pasig City resident who's into the popular Italian fare and they'll opine that the fresh ingredients and the style of preparation at BSC make all the difference in the high-grade taste.

French Press Coffee
Vietnamese Coffee
Blueberry Cheesecake
3. Terrific Desserts and Hot Drinks

Hot Milk Chocolate
Being a cafe, BSC also has hot drinks and desserts which is almost devoid at the city proper. The nearest Starbucks is way up in Oranbo and there's a so-so cafe serving forgettable cake and coffee in Kapasigan, so the best spot to have a cuppa or a sweet order of anything is in Caniogan where the restaurant is.

You'll be surprised to know that BSC serves Hot Vietnamese Coffee for the well-traveled coffee aficionado and French Press Coffee for those who have the affinity for the classic.

If you're into something sweet, it also has Hot Milk Chocolate. At BSC, chocolate callets are served in a heat-resistant glass where you can pour the accompanying hot milk for an indulgent, rich, creamy experience. That way, one can have a real chocolate drink. The result: superiority in taste as well as a thicker and richer texture.

To add to your drinking experience, order the restaurant's Brownie a la Mode or a Blueberry Cheesecake.

Still not sure what to order at Buffalo Swing Cafe when you're in Pasig City? Maybe it's time to visit the restaurant yourself and finally taste the neighborhood hit that's BSC.
