Located along the East Capitol Drive in Brgy. Kapitolyo, Three Sisters' Restaurant was established back in 1941. People would visit Three Sisters' Refreshment Parlor for their halo-halo and noodle dishes.
With over 70 years of existence, they are still serving hearty Filipino dishes from the founder, Lola Rosa's original recipes. With such a long history in the restaurant industry and a list of mouthwatering foods-to-try on their menu, Three Sisters’ is one of the suggested place to try in Kapitolyo.
Having read the reviews online, I was excited to try their bestsellers and forget about what diet is.
Blogger Rochelle Rivera beautifully narrated it.
The name Three Sisters', was derived from the radio jingle of a famous brand of talcum powder that Lola Rosa loved. Lola Rosa Francisco, a mother of five, first opened a small panciteria at Poblacion in downtown Pasig on November of 1941. Lola Rosa named it Three Sisters' Refreshment Parlor.
After a month of operation, WWII broke out and her family fled to Antipolo for shelter and safety. After the height of the war, they came back to Pasig, and to their surprise, they came back for nothing. Their house and little luncheonette were burnt down. But, this did not stop Lola Rosa from pursuing her passion for cooking. Driven by her optimism, she rebuilt and reopened Three Sisters'.
During the 70's, Lola Rosa's little luncheonette moved to its present site in Kapitolyo, Pasig. Since then, it became a full service restaurant now called, Three Sisters' Restaurant of Pasig. -

If I were to name my top three choices, it would be their Pork BBQ, Pancit Bihon and Cripy Pata.
Their “must-try” Pork BBQ is one of their bestseller. The pork was marinated with their homemade secret sweet sauce. It is tender and juicy and doesn’t have a lot of fat, compared to our usual Pinoy Pork BBQ. With a price of PHP48 each piece, this is a thrift way to experience the cliché definition of “heaven”. You would definitely beg for more.
Cripsy Pata, served with Kare Kare’s vegetable and paste is one of the best I had that time. Just the word itself, Crispy Pata and Kare Kare, I think I no longer need to further explain why. If you were to blame the dish for another round of rice, it would definitely their Crispy Pata.
