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.
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|
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.
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.
|Chicken BBQ Corn Pizza|
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.
|Brownie a la Mode|
|French Press Coffee|
|Hot Milk Chocolate|
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.
