If there’s one thing that the ongoing Enhanced Community Quarantine has taught me, it’s learning how to appreciate the little things. It’s a chance to rest and unwind, to spend time with family, and to be grateful for what we have. Just think— we’re blessed to be at home, while our front-liners are out in the field risking their lives for us. While other less fortunate people are thinking of what to eat next, we have a well-stocked fridge and food on-hand.

And I think that all this is something that we should be thankful for.

While we do want to go back to the simpler times, the harsh reality is that we can’t. But even when faced with the uncertainty of the future, we too can have a temporary moment of reprieve by enjoying home-cooked meals with Friends and Family.

Friends and Family

Friends and Family is a restaurant located in BGC that serves comfort food dishes— a nostalgic taste of Filipino cooking. It’s a blast from the past that pays tribute to Manila’s neighborhood eateries and diners back during the days of your parents and grandparents. And although they add a creative twist to some dishes, the taste is familiar, comforting, and heartwarming all the same.

Choosing to focus on Filipino cuisine, Friends and Family specializes in Pugon-style cooking, a rustic and artisanal process were dishes are slow-cooked in an oven for smokey flavors. Some bestselling dishes include their pork barbecue and isaw for those who miss street food, while their meaty dishes include Lechon Kawali and Sizzling Bulalo Steak. On the other hand, hearty soups include their Chinese-style Maki mi, Spanish arroz caldo, and a modern take on the breakfast porridge: Ube Champorado.

Available for Takeout and Delivery

Amid the ongoing Enhanced Community Quarantine set in Luzon, Friends and Family reopened on March 25 to accommodate deliveries. That means from 11 AM to 7 PM, hungry patrons can get food delivered to them via FoodPanda. But if you’re in the area for important errands, they do takeouts as well.

(Pro Tip: FoodPanda offers free delivery throughout the quarantine!)

Friends and Family is managed by Raintree Restaurants, a hospitality management company known for F&B solutions to hotels, restaurants, and malls. Raintree features a conglomerate of different restaurant concepts under their belt— each one boasting of an innovative twist tailored to their market. They currently operate over 30 restaurants, food halls, and hotels in 12 different locations with over 1,100 staff employed.
