Well-loved Filipino viands such as Adobo, Bistek Tagalog, Teriyaki, and Caldereta are made affordable along with their best selling “Silog” meals like Beef Tapa, Longganisa, Pork Tocino, and Grilled Liempo. They also have their own take on Pampanga’s Sizzling  Sisig, Crispy Pata, Pinoy Barbecue, Beef Pares, Sizzling Chicken, and the innovative dish, Pinoy Burrito (rice, meat and cheese wrapped in wheat flour tortilla) which will truly satiate even those with discriminating palate. Knowing these, you’ll find every reason (even the smallest one) to celebrate and eat out.


The taste and coziness of one’s home on a bowl–we call them comfort food. These are the kind of dishes Boy Kanin had been serving its loyal customers for the past five years that they’ve been operating the said business. Their dishes tickle your tastebuds and somehow feed the soul. Even if you’re away from home, somehow Boy Kanin’s menu offers a feeling of home through their evolving menu. The flavors  they offer are becoming more diverse with the addition of elaborate cooking techniques and unlikely flavors. The Pinoy Burrito, for example, has that Pinoy twist from the typical burrito we’ve always known.

Elevated kaninderya and with new iterations, Boy Kanin’s feel-good dishes do not just sate your hunger but also our longing for solace and the warmth of home.

The brainchild of Mr. Ronald Allan Callao, Boy Kanin was made out of his desire to offer alternative to fast-food meals that cater to the masses. Each meal is made fresh to order, so you can be assured of its quality. No wonder that loyal customers are singing praises of Boy Kanin as one of the best and most “sulit meals” in the metro.

Why so sulit? There’s no need to ask for extra rice because each meal has generous servings of Boy Kanin’s signature yellow rice. You won’t end up feeling ‘bitin’ after having one of Boy Kanin’s meals. Note that your dining experience would not be complete if you won’t try and wash it down with their signature Salabat Ginger Tea. We swear, even if you’re not exactly a fan of ginger, you will like this. Even kids might even like its taste because it’s sweetened with honey. But it doesn’t have that bitter after-taste we usually encounter with ginger tea. The ginger tea perfectly complements each dish. And get this, each time you purchase Boy Kanin’s ginger tea, you are actually helping an entire community by giving them livelihood. That’s because Boy Kanin’s CEO, President and proprietor, Mr. Ronald Callao sources the ginger from a certain community and in the process allows them to make a living.
