"There are so many different challenges that Filipino restaurateurs and entrepreneurs are still trying to figure out.

Filipino food has been celebrated and adored in different niche areas just by us, Filipino people, for many years. The challenge was if we want to make a business out of it and sell something that’s Filipino inspired, we’d have to be creative and come up with a menu that makes sense and is relatable."-- Alex Retodo, Photo: @rawbeez
