Excerpt from Indulge section of InFlight July-August 2012 Issue. Written by Lei Chavez.
“Villa Café is a quaint two-storey 60-seater restaurant in Yakal Street, Makati City. Coming here feels like visiting grandma’s house for her hearty homemade meals. Framed pictures of the owners during childhood days and personal messages and reflections on cooking and family life, are hung on walls, and smooth jazz music wafting in the air add up to the homey ambience. There’s an open kitchen to let you take a peek at how your food is prepared.
Homemade Kapampangan specialties using family heirloom recipes recreated by owners Chef Sau del Rosario and Chef Jam Melchor. “Everything is locally-sourced, organic, and sustainable,” says Chef Jam. The sauces are handmade and most ingredients come directly from Pampanga.
A full course meal of appetizer, main course and dessert will set you back about P1,000 (about US $24). This definitely gets a double thumbs-up for good Filipino food.
