Once you enter the doors of Gourmet Gypsy Art Cafe, you will instantly notice their diverse ambiance and global cuisine, giving no doubt that its owner Waya Wijangco loves travel and variety. Everything from the Afghanistan carpets to the Asian paintings and exotic sculptures to the luxuriously decorated atmosphere is a testament to that fact.
The restaurant is located in Tomas Morato and is another successful addition to Quezon City’s food hub. It is perfect for a casual date with a special someone or a classy food trip with your barkada. With its elegant interiors and lavish outdoor gardens, you will surely enjoy dining here.
What makes this restaurant truly a standout is its advocacy for people with special needs. This is no surprise since its owner Chef Wijangco is also the founder of the Open Hand School for Applied Arts, a vocational school that has programs geared towards the mastery of entrepreneurship, academics, social and community skills to ensure that students can become independent members of society. The restaurant therefore also serves as a laboratory dedicated to providing employment opportunities to its students.
The restaurant’s menu boasts of global cuisine inspired by Wijangco’s travels. With an Asian, Mediterranean, Latin and American-inspired menu, her restaurant proves that you don’t have to travel far to enjoy culturally authentic cuisine. I tried some of their bestsellers and came up with a list of dishes that you should definitely check out!
