The recent pandemic has brought about challenges to most businesses. Most started closing down or retrenching. ALPHA Massage and Wellness, a home service massage, wasn’t spared from this fate, and employees started to fear losing their jobs. But how in the world are you supposed to bring home service massage online?
It is in this time of uncertainty that owner Gio Carillo had a eureka moment, thinking: why not step out of their comfort zones and create something new? Soon after, they launched ALPHA’s Kitchen Home Delivery. Now, they offer a variety of Filipino dishes that are so good, you won’t believe them if they said they were originally therapists and not chefs!
Their signature Crispy Bagnet Kare-Kare is something that even a person who doesn’t like nuts (like me) will want a second round of. The creamy peanut sauce paired with the tender meat and leafy greens made me go wow. Oh, and don’t forget the bagoong that comes with it! Their bagoong perfects the dish.
Apart from kare-kare, here’s another saucy ulam for you to have at home: Bicol Express. I claim this as my favorite from their offerings. Boy, the spiciness of the dish blends just right with the coconut milk, never covering its taste nor making it nakakaumay. I especially love how the meat doesn’t lose its flavor while still being tender.
Spicy Salmon Pesto Pasta
I’m not kidding when I say that the Spicy Salmon Pesto is the epitome of hindi tinipid. If you’re so done with takeout pasta, where the number of clams or shrimps are counted by the gram; then this one’s for you. The fish, sauce, and other ingredients are never lacking for the noodles; and the savory flavor is just right. It also brings about a little bit of spiciness to spike up the flavor.
What is a meal without dessert? ALPHA’s offers Filipino favorites that are too good for us to maintain our diets (huhu). First comes the Leche Flan, the creamy and soft texture of which melts in your mouth. It’s a bit sweet, though; so if you prefer lighter desserts like me, the next one would be a better fit for you.
Their Maja Blanca has a smooth and delicate base topped with latik that is not too sweet nor overpowering. If you’re someone who likes cold dessert, you can also leave it in the fridge for a few hours before eating it!
ALPHA’s Kitchen Home Delivery Menu
I know that there are a lot of choices to choose from their menu and it’s kinda hard to choose, but don’t worry. You can choose the bundle package of 5 Full Medium Tubs for only Php999, so you can try more with one order! I mean, you do the math. If that’s still not considered sulit, I don’t know what is.
