Karnitas Korner is a new casual dining restaurant located at Phil-Am Road in Kapitolyo, Pasig City. The restaurant opened last March 2015 and specializes in porchetta which they use in almost all of their dishes, from appetizers to pasta, and to rice meals.
The restaurant used to be an apartment unit in this quiet residential quarter of Kapitolyo. The space was beautifully transformed into a hip dining venue characterized by its ultra modern hand painted walls, long wooden tables, mosaic table tops. See more interior photos in the below gallery.
Diners can choose between the al fresco dining area and the main air-conditioned dining area inside the restaurant.
During our visit at Karnitas Korner, we were able to try three dishes which happened to be some of their house specialties. Their menu is not complicated, there are only a number of dishes to choose from which makes it easier for customers to decide what to order. The prices are also very reasonable. Most if not all are below P200.00.
We also got to try two of their desserts, the Reeses Fudge Brownies (left) and the Snicker Doodle Blondies (right). Both are served ala mode and drizzled with chocolate and caramel. We find the desserts too sweet for our taste but the kids and those who have sweet tooth will surely love these desserts. I personally loved the Snicker Doodle Blondies because of its cinnamon flavor.
Karnitas Korner also serves wines and local beers which are both perfect with their porchetta dishes. But more than a drinking place, Karnitas Korner is restaurant where you can enjoy the company of your friends in a cozy and intimate setting over comfort food and great conversations.
Overall, Karnitas Korner is a welcome addition to the growing number of restaurants in Kapitolyo. They are currently the only one specializing in porchetta making it a dining destination for those caving for this Italian comfort food. We will definitely be back to try their other dishes. We hope that they can add two more pasta dishes and other versions of the Porchetta Rice. See you when you get the chance to visit Karnitas Korner in Kapitolyo, Pasig.
