Although I love shopping, I hate going to malls where everyone seems rushing and running around. While I want to take every stride a walk in the park, the reality blows the serene spirit when you bump into other shoppers or shopping bags.
There are only a few malls that I love visiting – Shangri-la and Robinson’s Magnolia. I am adding the newly opened shopping mall, Estancia in Capitol Commons, Pasig City on my list. My friend and I visited the place for dessert at Larcy’s (more about the delicious cupcakes from Larcy’s on a separate blog post) and I instantly fell in love with Estancia!
What not to love about Estancia?
I was telling my friend how Estancia feels like visiting a mall somewhere in a North American region with a diverse selection of European store favorites. I love the architecture, the warm lighting, and the list of stores which are soon to open.
My friend said that it is a property of Ortigas & Company. Before the opening of the Estancia in December 4th, Capitol Commons is already known for its Gastro Strip which houses different restaurants and pubs.

I also sighted:
The ground level of the Estancia, Manila is dedicated to foodies. You can now dine at Cafe Mediterranean, Jipan, XO 46 Bistro Filipino, Mrs Fields, Cara Mia, and Larcy’s. Soon to open stores are Banana Leaf, Peanut Butter & Co, Seoul Bowl, and Wholesome Tablea
Parking at Estancia, Capitol Commons
There are 3 levels of parking at the Estancia, Capitol Commons. When we went, parking is still FREE. 🙂 I don’t know until when, but I am thinking probably once more stores open, they would roll out the new parking fees.
Restrooms at Estancia, Capitol Commons
My visit to a mall is not complete without trips to the restroom. Haha. Estancia Mall’s restrooms are well-kept, clean and fully stocked. There are paper towels, soap and rolls of tissue in every cubicle. I hate going to malls with unkept restrooms (!!!)
It was literally a walk in the park outside Estancia. The place is perfect for morning jogs, lunch dates and evening walks. There were families and couples hanging around when we went. I am officially envious of my friend who lives across Capitol Commons. It is not fair that he lives in Kapitolyo
where restaurant business is booming – and now they got Capitol Commons – where I heard Unimart Supermarket
is opening soon.
Anyway, that ends the short tour of Estancia, Mall where shoppers can get to enjoy great selection of international stores and multi-cultural cuisine offerings from different restaurants in wider space indoor and outdoor. Chill.
