Kapatad Kitchen and Cafe was a lifelong dream of the Franco family, a simple and humble Filipino family that migrated to Austin, Texas over a decade ago. The Franco family was originally from Santa Rita, Pampanga, a province in the Northern part of the Philippines which is known for its delicious food and great hospitality. The seven Franco siblings learned their cooking skills from their mother, Francisca, and their father, Zoilo. These recipes were handed down from many generations and made into delicious dishes that are popular all over the Philippines.
Four of the siblings namely Jasmine, Rene, Carmen and Eric, with the love and support of their spouses Rudy, Beverly, Jasper and Margie decided to pursue this dream of opening a restaurant after many years to bring authentic Filipino favorites to Austin, Texas through Kapatad Kitchen and Cafe.
