Hunan and Guangdong Cuisines at Fantaste Restaurant
The idea of putting up a restaurant serving single clay pot rice brand in the Philippines came from a couple who upon traveling, discovers a small restaurant that uses clay pot rice cooked under charcoal. The idea soon became a reality and Fantaste, a Cantonese and Hong Kong style cuisine from Hunan and Guangdong in China, was born.
Almost a year later, Fantaste has been a favorite among the Chinese restaurants found in Makati. Serving food from Guangdong (Cantonese/Hong Kong Style) and Hunan (spicy), Fantaste makes sure to keep their meals as authentic as it can get.
