Chef Dennis, a Bicolano, a pastor, a teacher, “Chef Rabbi” as what his friends and students would call him, the owner and chef of Chef Rabbi, shared his humble beginnings of not too long ago with us.

There, he realized that he loved doing it and all the more, loved to serve his customers the food that they want…

His first customer was a blessing. He did not just walk in 15 minutes after Chef Dennis first opened his restaurant; he also ordered takeouts for his brother to try, which led to many more visits and recruits to the place.

A few days after, another group of people came in and enjoyed his food so much that they decided to come by every week. 3 months after the opening, they had already tried everything, so they asked him to cook dishes other than the ones Chef Rabbi was already serving.

Aside from the fact that Chef Rabbi already has a variety of food on his menu, he also allows food requests, as if you were at home, in your own kitchen, with a personal chef. (Requests will have to be notified in advance, of course, to give time for market and preparation.)
