  • Family heirloom recipes can possess greater value than any material treasure. They are, after all, a symbol of family traditions and a link to our cultural heritage, passed down from one generation to another. This is what makes up Fely J’s Kitchen in Makati, a restaurant that honors Felicidad de Jesus-Cruz’ treasured recipes!

    Felicidad or Fely J is the mother of Larry J. Cruz, the founder of the LJC Restaurant Group that houses Filipino favorite restaurants such as Abé and Lorenzo’s Way. Her recipes are inspired by her many travels and showcase her personal touch, described as “fresh, natural, and attractive”. This allows diners to experience authentic Filipino flavors passed down through generations.

    Among the must-try Filipino and Asian fusion dishes include Fely J’s version of Bistek Tagalog ng Kano made of thinly sliced and pan-fried U.S. Black Angus sirloin in soy sauce.

    For another main course that you can share with your friends and family, Fely J’s version of Tilapia with Sweet Plum Sauce is also among the signature dishes of the restaurant. This goes alongside their Crispy Patang Bawang, featuring  crunchy, deep-fried pork leg, served with a special dipping sauce!

    To balance the flavors and add a rich umami depth to your entrees, pair these with Fely J’s Dilis-cious Rice that highlights the crunchy texture of deep-fried dilis (anchovies) with taosi (fermented black soybeans) on a generous serving of steamed rice.
