Main Street is sure one of the head-turner restaurants in Kapitolyo because it is not so common for the Filipinos to stumble a Canadian comfort food.
With the food that I will get to show, I am confident to share with how Canadian meal taste-like since the menu and the food served is crafted with the chef owner, Adam Tan, who had stayed in Canada long enough to understand their taste buds.
That night, we, the bloggers start off healthy with the Cajun Spiced Prawn Salad. It has its greens but not the boring one. The Cajun spiced grilled prawns are not the only thing that brings flavor to the salad but the orange tarragon vinaigrette. It’s a-must order!
The next food served is one of the well-known dishes in Canada – poutines…. poutato… potato! We got to try two of the poutines on Main Street menu. I actually like both but if one prefers more meat on poutines, the Bacon Poutine is the right choice since the bacon is also homemade and flavorful. Meanwhile, Supreme Poutine is like eating supreme nachos but with more add-ons onto it. It has flank steak strips, cheese sauce, tomato salsa, shredded lettuce and cilantro crema.
Judging from its presentation, I knew that the 3-Pc Buttermilk Fried Chicken is not the ordinary fried chicken meal since it is an 8-hour brined Southern Style with garlic cream sauce. The chicken is crispy but it has a surprising taste I loved. This one may be served with rice or fries.
The Main Street had something that is not the usual thing everyone would encounter since it’s a Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese. Who would have thought that a jam goes well with a cheese! This sounds romantic, isn’t? A GOOEY cheese and a SWEET bacon jam is the perfect example that opposites do attract. The meal also comes with tomato soup.
The Main Street also has seafood and one dish pours tons of it! In Tomato Braised Seafood Stew, there are prawns, mussels, and fish! The tomato flavor is not too strong and the rosemary garnished adds aroma to the stew. May serve with rice or toasted bread.
I was totally mind blown when they served not just one but four burgers! All of them tasted good but I like the Barbecue Burger more since it has strips of applewood smoked bacon. Would it also be too much if I tell that the Barbecue Burger also has a fried onion ring in it?
I also liked the Caramelized and Bleu. So I know some people who are not fond of bleu cheese but sorry I am so this is second on my list. It has arugula, garlic mayonnaise, and caramelized onions so how it was named.
The Classic Cheeseburger has romaine lettuce, sliced tomatoes, grilled onions, cheddar cheese, ketchup, mustard, and pickles.
The Double Bacon is sinful. It has their homemade bacon jam and applewood smoked bacon. The kick of mozzarella cheese adds yumminess to this burger.
A confession to make for the Barbeque Chicken Pizza, I cannot really remember how it tasted so I just better flash here the photo. It is topped with chicken, grated cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, barbecue sauce, chopped cilantro and sliced red onions.
Opposite with the pizza, the Beef Shin Ragu is the dish I can completely remember the taste since it is a unique dash in my palate. I know it’s not the cheese that caught my attention but it’s the impeccable pair of beef shin and their tomato sauce.
The room for dessert in Main Street was quite big. We were fortunate enough to try all of the desserts they offer so I will rank it and my favorite of them all is the Blueberry Cheesecake. The cheesecake is not dry and the sweetness is just right. On the other hand, the Fudge Brownie a la Mode is close to my liking if only the brownie is moist. Lastly, the Apple Crumble is also good but maybe I would like it more if it is drizzled with milk or caramel sauce.
Grayish brick walls, black and white photos, black, brown and white chairs, The Main Street plays with that color tones. The restaurant looks vibrant and youthful but with a closer look, it is recognizable that it was an old house tweaked to keep up to the modern age. They also have function area upstairs and they also hold company parties simply because they can :p I mean, the restaurant is really roomy. As for the price, it is reasonable enough since the portioning are done fairly and the taste and menu are well-thought out. Overall, I would not mind coming in Kapitolyo again to dine-in at Main Street.
