Villa Cafe Kapampangan Resto by Chef Sau & Chef Jam

Villa Cafe by Chef Sau-28.jpg

Chef Sau and Chef Jam have finally opened a Kapampangan resto serving heirloom recipes from their families. It is aptly named "Villa" because of the old villages in Angeles -- Villa Gloria and Angela -- where they grew up.

All the dishes we ordered were rich in taste, plated well, and had that signature Kapampangan quality. Looks-wise and taste-wise, this is the kind of Filipino food that can please an international audience.

The Sound of Music-12.jpg
If the timeless movie The Sound of Music was part of your childhood, you'll certainly enjoy watching it onstage this time around.

The musical features the all-time favorite songs of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, like "The Sound of Music", "Sixteen Going on Seventeen", "My Favorite Things", "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" and "Do-Re-Mi".

Watching this show with your family is a great way to introduce the younger generation to this classic. Don't miss it!

My Family Kitchen (MFK) - a Hidden Kapampangan Resto in Makati

My Family Kitchen-25.jpgMy Family Kitchen-23.jpg

My Family Kitchen (a.k.a. MFK) is the brainchild of Dada Dayrit. Here, people can taste her family's Kapampangan signature recipes, including the delicious ensaimada.

Kapampangans are known to serve yummy food without scrimping on ingredients. Taste is prioritized over price. Since the Dayrit family owns the apartment block where the restaurant is located, much of what you pay for really goes to the quality of the food.

When we were looking for the restaurant along Kamagong, we missed it the first time around. A bit hidden, it has an apartment-looking entrance and its signage can't be easily read. Nevertheless, it's worth the trip. :)

Sophie's Mom: A Modern Neighborhood Bakery

Sophie's Kitchen-7.jpg

Marie Antoinette Rosal is Sophie's Mom. Sophie is one lucky girl because her mother can create the yummiest treats. It's a good thing then that her mom decided to open a "Homestyle Bakery and Confectionary" so that the rest of the populace can taste them.

Located on the young and chic Santol St. in San Antonio Village, Makati, the bakery offers cakes, cupcakes, mochi truffles, mochi ice cream and specialty breads like Spanish bread. The place is open as early as 6am and items are baked fresh everyday.

Imagine a wonderful mix of Sonja's Cupcakes, Mochiko, Dezato and a neighborhood bakeshop (with a modern twist) minus the dine-in option -- that's Sophie's Mom.
