The Hao-Q Asian Kitchen Restaurant at Far West Blvd was sold by its owner Young Quach to the Franco family from Austin, Texas this June of 2021 and will now have a new name which is Kapatad Kitchen and Cafe.
We will continue to serve Young’s popular Chinese dishes and will be adding some new Filipino dishes for you to enjoy.
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.
The restaurant will be serving both Filipino and Chinese cuisine to cater to everyone who loves Asian cooking which will now include some of our popular dishes from the Philippines and will be prepared by Chef Rene Franco, one of the siblings and his team. Kapatad is the Kapampangan word for Siblings which represents our family, our cooking, and our values.

Maraming SAlAMAT Po!
