Like Marikina, Kapitolyo is also considered a home to a number of hole in the wall establishments in the East side of the Metro. You will find a variety of budget friendly (and not so budget friendly) restaurants along the stretch of Kapitolyo in the heart of Pasig City.
Yesterday, we are in the mood for some steak so we decided to have lunch at Rub but then when we arrived Rub at 1PM in the afternoon, they were still full and there aren’t any parking spaces available anymore. Luckily, when we drove a little more we saw Tomahawk on our left (coming from Pioneer) and decided to give it a try.
Though small, they still managed to put a number of tables (5) that can sit 4 people and 1 that can sit 2, 6 tables in total. I like that they didn’t maximized the space to put tables all over the place and left one side of the hall open. That way, customers will still have air to breathe even if the establishment is full.

When we arrived, we luckily were able to avail of their 11AM-2PM weekday promotion. The promo is P199.00 for a Grilled Tomahawk chop which is originally priced at P275.00. Both already have a glass of iced tea with it. However, compared to the chop on promo, the regular priced chop includes 2 sides already.

Though not evident in this photo, their chop is actually an inch thick!
Like what they’re claiming, their Grilled tomahawk chop is indeed an inch thick! Well, both of our orders were so I’m assuming that it is really their standard serving. Just from the looks of it, I can already say that they know their chops pretty well. Though thick, it is grilled to perfection with its juice oozing from the meat with each slice. So tender that we didn’t felt the need to exert an effort to use the knife, or to chew for that matter. About the flavor, I love that even if it is smothered with their signature sauce, it still tasted just right. I also love that “grilled” taste is present in the chop. And one more thing, I’m not really particular with the rice that goes with my orders but theirs is evidently in good quality. I mean a person can tell if it is good just by the color, right? It’s just too white and is cooked perfectly for my liking.
|Onion rings (P145.00)|
Aside from the main that we ordered, we decided to order a serving of their onion rings (P145.00). We would love to try their chili cheese fries initially but we were informed that it is not available at the moment. The serving is enough for two persons. Batter coats each onion ring perfectly, it’s not too thick and not too thin at the same time. They didn’t scrimped in the use of onions, each is sliced just enough. The dip greatly complements the onion rings too. I personally think that we shouldn’t have ordered the onion rings, not because we didn’t liked how it tasted but because we were already full with the huge Tomahawk chop that were served, and finishing a serving of the onion rings became a bit of a struggle. Anyhow, we still managed to finish it though. And besides, who are we to complain about having too much food to eat? J
To those who are interested to try, they’re open only during lunch and dinner:
