    Taupe is a fine dining concept that blends local and global ingredients to elevate the flavors of classic Filipino dishes into an art form. This means a harmonious fusion of flavors and stylish plating all in one culinary masterpiece, made possible by no other than Chef Francis Tolentino.

    Chef Francis uses premium ingredients such as blue crabs from Cebu, clams from Manila, oysters from Aklan, tiger prawns from Roxas, and chocolates from South Cotabato, among others, to create his signature tasting menu, complete from appetizer to dessert.

    Other notable high-quality ingredients Chef Francis uses to add rich flavors to his dishes are apahap or Asian sea bass, featured in his version of Ceviche, as well as batwan, a type of local fruit used to add a sour flavor to dishes, just like Chef Francis’ version of 36-hour Kurobota cooked in sinigang style.
