Being one of Pages Holdings Inc. (PHI) new babies, Kampo Grill & Bar is slowing inching in to be the new home for the hungry and braved ones (so to speak). Alongside its big bros and sis like like Mooon Cafe, Lantaw, House of Lechon and many more, Kampo is a new place to watch out for. The whole place depicts a unique ambiance that shows off a cool vibe, like you are actually in a war zone. Known for it’s Military-based theme and interiors, complete with camouflage roof, cargo-uniformed crews, metal utensils, sand bags, and a military tank at the dining area, you’ll feel like going to combat – with their sumptuous dishes as your adversary. How do you like that?
In their newest craze, HOOAH BBQ Fest, Kampo offers Pork Isaw which is basically skewed pork intestines. I first tried pork isaw from the famous Mang Larry’s Isawan at UP Diliman. This version has a Cebuano stamp having the sweet sauce as a giveaway. I must say that Kampo has one of the yummiest Chorizo bbq in town. Would you believe that I finished 3 big balls of Chorizo that night? I’m giving them two-thumbs-up for finding the best chorizo supplier in the metro. If you check their menu, Kampo Grill & Bar offers all our favorite street food skewers served in metal plates and utensils. Dining surely feels like you are in a battlefield.
Chef Glene Sy was very approachable and accommodating enough to talk to us about her childhood memories and inspiration that led her to become a chef. She is one of the staple chefs in PHI who is also a kitchen collaborator of Cafe Racer.
Every Saturday until October 27, 2018, Kampo Grill will be hosting MUSIKGUERRA, Battle of the Bands. This event showcases 32 local bands in different genres battling it out for the grand prize of P50,000.00 and a chance to appear on MYX and be heard on Spotify. The competition is about the bands’ talent and ability perform three covers and two original compositions that are groundbreaking and appealing enough for the three distinguished judges. This music fest is tied to Kampo Grill & Bar’s HOOAH! Barbeque Fest that is also happening every Saturday night. I find it a welcome event for the night owls and music lovers since you will be getting the best of both worlds, smoky BBQ coupled with great music. Rakista’s, unite!
Our satisfied faces says it all. HOOAH! BBQ Fest delivered! We went our separate ways happy and so full. Thank you Kampo Grill & Bar for your warm welcome and friendly staff.
Mark your calendars for Musik GUERRA Battle of the Bands: The Final Battle on October 27. Admission is FREE. Just make sure you grab all your head bangin’ and food lovin’ friends because you are in for a treat.
