If you’re ever at the Pinto Art Museum or anywhere near Antipolo, make sure to stop by Sulok Café at Sumulong Memorial Circle, five minutes down the road from the museum.
This tiny establishment, which means “corner café” in Tagalog, is run by an extremely dedicated millennial couple who both quit their jobs and plunged their life savings into starting their own business — Andy Riel Wong (the female half of the duo) used to work in ecommerce, while Rods Escobar (her fiancé) toiled at an advertising agency.
Popular Antipolo food spot, a casualty of the pandemic, to close its doors
As someone who has lived in Antipolo for 23 years, I, along with many friends from grade school and high school, have explored much of the city, including popular tourist-y destinations like Hinulugang Taktak, the Our Lady of Peace and Voyage, or the Pinto Art Museum.
Whenever friends from Manila who want a quick retreat in the city ask me for must-try food spots, though, I always recommend Sulok Cafe.
