Welcome to Kapitana!

Kapitana is one of the Filipino restaurants in the city center of Riyadh. It is located at Abu Bakr Al Razi Street, Sulemania. It is owned by a Filipino businessman, Marlon Dela Cruz who originates from Quezon Province.

“Kapitana” is the chosen name for this restaurant because it is to give honor to the mother of Marlon, a barangay captain in his hometown in the Philippines.

Filipino paintings as decorations inside the restaurant

Due to the establishment’s concept of being a restaurant for the Filipinos, they came up with an interior design inspired by Filipino culture. This concept is evident in the bayanihan paintings on the walls.

According to Chef Jeryl, his inspiration for the menu is to take Filipino cuisine into a higher level. He wants it to look more appetizing and a bit modern pagdating sa plating pero Pinoy na Pinoy pa rin ang lasa.

Here are 3 must-try dishes that would definitely satisfy your Pinoy cravings:
