Don’t be surprised if you enter through the roof in this restaurant and seeing chairs, dining table and grand piano above your head. I’m talking about the only restaurant of its kind in the metro. The Pan De Amerikana, the first and the only upside down restaurant in Southeast Asia, located in Katipunan Ave., Quezon City.
Open from 6am to 9pm everyday (except Sundays 6am to 3pm) experience the homely, garden-inspired, open-air, non-smoking restaurant. Pan de Amerikana doesn’t just offer the best and authentic 1950’s pandesal but they also serve home-cooked meals which is indeed affordable. The menu consists of different Filipino breakfast meals and dishes such as ILOKANO-longganisa, BICOLANO-express-laing, CEBUANO-sinugba, KAPAMPANGAN-sisig and many other meals such as pasta and mushroom delicacies.
I remember the first time we decided to go Pan De Amerikana. We didn’t even know the exact location, curiosity drives us, happening by chance, we reached the Pan De Amerikana in Marikina which is the main branch.
No. It’s not the restaurant as what I expected and Googled, I mean it’s not upside down. But even if it’s not, it offers same thing in Katipunan branch. Great foods, service and comfortable ambience inside of it, wherein you can dine in a garden setting with waterfalls, treehouse, rope bridge, koi pond, traviesa benches and old antique wood tables.You can also play chess with your buddy for free using tournament sized table pieces or the jumbo-sized 3 and a half feet high plastic chess pieces imported from New York City. The main branch is considered as ONE OF THE FIVE CHESS THEMED RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD. You’ll also see the life-sized wind driven Netherland windmill outside the resto.
Months later, we decided again to go back to Upside down Pan De Amerikana, but this time we’re sure that it’s on Katipunan, Avenue in Quezon City. The other branches are at Wilson street Greenhills San Juan and Makati Avenue corner Constellation st. beside Savory.
Pan de Amerikana is guaranteed to give every customer a whole new experience with every visit.
