Diners from Western countries are widely known for their vibrant match of colors and memorabilia that depicts the history of the country’s rich culture of films, music, people, cars, and arts. But who says it can be only seen in Western countries?
Let’s take you to Cavite and experience a diner far from the USual (pun intended).
7twenty7 American Diner is a diner-inspired restaurant that caters a wide variety of Mexican, American, and Italian food with a twist of Filipino food on its menu. Currently, they have 2 branches and both are located in Cavite.
Their main branch is located in Kawit, Cavite. Its roadside location and alfresco dining give off a good mysterious vibe that will surely catch your inner curious cats to explore and dine.
Having a jukebox as its centerpiece and candles on the tables with an accent of good lighting would take you to the past and romantic retro ambiance.
The food is also on par with the good place. A perfect combination of good food and a good place. A combo of Mexican, American, and a surprise of Pinoy food.
These are the food that filled our stomachs while enjoying their place.
Beef Tapa + Adobo Flakes
This dish made an impact making it to a diner’s menu, a Pinoy food that can sit equally with a Western type of cuisine. The beef was soft and the adobo flakes were a bit crunchy building a nice texture in your mouth that blends well with their atsara. Rice alert! This dish comes along with adobo rice topped with egg. A combo that could really never go wrong.
Bolognese Pasta + Wings
Bolognese Pasta is an Italian dish that has a sour taste because of its rich tomato paste balanced with herbs, such as celery and thyme, goes well with cheese of course. Their version of the pasta resembles all those descriptions, truly a must try. Alongside the pasta is a bunch of chicken wings served and poured with Louisiana-style buffalo sauce. A full package of tender chicken with a rich taste and an aldenté pasta with a well-balanced sauce. Perfect!
Grilled Pork Belly
A nice smokey taste with a nice dark finish on the outside. An obvious soaked to the classic sauce coating while grilling. The meat was soft, juicy, and tasty.
Fish Fillet in Lemon Butter
A refreshing dish that balances the all-meat line-up. The combination of its breading and rice complements well with the softness and flavor of the fish.
Creamy Salmon Pasta
Has a classic creamy taste with the freshness of salmon without compromising the taste of other ingredients. Saltiness is brought by cheese and the soft mushroom bound by the creaminess of the sauce.
Pasta and Sub
This made the difference for us spicy lovers with its aldenté noodles covered with the strong sweet, hot, and spicy flavor enticing the buds to eat more. Partnered with a chicken sandwich mixed with mushroom bound by mayo spread extinguishing the spicy flavor of the pasta with its sweet and refreshing taste. A great balance as well.
A unique crepe that brings the taste of the sea. Matched with the tortilla and sweet mayo to complete the combo.
For the beverages, they served us their signature flavored milkshakes: Avocado, Chocolate, and Vanilla. They also have the elite drinks, which include Midnight Cookies and Cream and Strawberry Milkshake.
By the way, they currently have a promo here in their Kawit branch, which is their lunch meals. This is available from Monday to Friday, 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM. Price ranges from 190 PHP to 220 PHP!

After a 10-minute ride from their main branch, there stands another branch of 7twenty7 American Diner in Imus, Cavite.
With its large space, everyone can enjoy the different visuals of the restaurant featuring a dashing red, blue, and pink colors that gives a consistent Western diner vibe.
They also have an events area, estimated to be for 30 persons, and its walls were designed with a rich collection of Marilyn Monroe’s and The Beatles’ portraits, which reminds us how films and music contribute a big part of us.
Also, the place displays a vintage car outside and upon entering the restaurant, invites more customers. But more than the place, the food gives an impact and an experience unique to every dining customer.
They’re probably the same branch but they offer a different and distinguished food listed on their menu.
The first stop is the Jambalaya dish. A mix of cajun rice topped with shrimps, sausages, and chicken. A terrific combination of rich flavors bursting after a spoon-filled experience.
Next is their Classic Cheeseburger which has a juicy beef patty with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, and onions served with generous fries. Truly a classic!
Another one of their best sellers is The Diner’s Original Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf. As its name suggests, prepare yourself for an all-meat experience with its homemade-baked meatloaf wrapped with bacon BBQ served with veggies and mashed potato. A meal that will surely fill your heart and stomach out.
Tuna Pomodoro is another pasta dish composed of Pomodoro sauce, spaghetti pasta, topped with olives, and cheddar cheese. A nice, saucy, and sweet-salty pasta.
For Mexican cuisine lovers, this Steak Burrito is for you. Mexican rice, chili con carne wrapped with soft tortilla that binds it all together served with cheese and sour cream.
A personal favorite is the BBQ Spare Ribs. The meat is soft and tender, melts in your mouth, and falls from the bones with ease. Poured with generous mesquite BBQ sauce with BBQ rice and coleslaw providing a great compliment to each other.
And of course, to cap it off the diner wouldn’t be complete without pancakes. They served the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip which blends well with the fluffy pancake. This one is an excellent experience for those who want to be filled with a new vibe of Western feels, making your eyes and stomach full of flavors and aesthetics.
Of course, we tried some of their refreshing and colorful drinks! Make sure to try all of these.
