La Carinderia in General Luna, Siargao: The Island’s Go-to Restaurant for Filipino-Italian Comfort Food
Born out of Italian Head Chef and Owner Stefano Tomasiello’s love for Filipino home cooked meals, La Carinderia was established together with his Filipina wife, Priscilla, out of Stefano’s passion for the concept of traditional dining at small local eateries in the country, where the restaurant took its name from.
The idea of Peppy Olive started with the owners' realization of how healthy meal options are very limited and a little too expensive. Thus, they thought of creating a fast-food type stall that encourages everyone to eat healthily, but with a very reasonable price. At Peppy Olive, they serve feel-good Mediterranean meals such as salads, pitas, rice meals, smoothies, falafel, kebab, and more.
If not because of a Filipino musician’s liking for the originally Middle Eastern foods like kebab (grilled meat) and falafel (deep-fried ball), this one of the best-loved restaurants of the community in Los Baños in Laguna would have not existed. Since 2011, Chubby Habbi’s Mediterranean Grill has been offering foods inspired by the best of Mediterranean cooking.
Serving continental cuisine for five years now, Black Olive is a Mediterranean wine café with a coveted list of everything you would like to experience in one place. Inspired by the owner’s many travels, Black Olive was born by recreating the best out of every adventure they have been to – whether it is the food, the ambiance, or the music.
