Where to eat?
A question usually asked amongst family or friends when eating out, and a decision so hard to arrive at, specially if one member has a different preferred cuisine. But worry no more. Whether dad prefers baby back ribs for dinner but brother loves to nibble some chicken wings, Happy Tables got you covered. This is a one-stop family hub in QC that houses 17 food stalls serving 17 distinctive cuisine.
Experts in the food industry, Mr. Oye and Ms. Marissa thought about the idea of extending the Filipino custom of salo-salo sa kainan when they put up this hub, hence arriving at the name: Happy Tables. The name simply depicts the common scene you see in every Filipino houses, restaurants, food parks—family and friends exchanging stories over great food.
Mr. Oye and Ms. Marissa also make sure that guests are served by a warm welcome by personally accommodating them and manning the hub. That’s hospitality at its best! Despite the past-faced environment of the local food industry, they want to remain with a truer approach to preparing food— which takes time to get the fullest of flavors. Hospitality plus food quality— where else would you go for your next resto-hopping?
