It’s Filipino food served with a twist!
There’s a familiar taste and story associated with Filipino food. It may be something you’ve often had growing up or it was a dish taught to you by your mother. More often than not, they’re made with recipes passed down from your lola— heirloom recipes, if you will. So, from an energizing almusal to a filling lunch, all the way down to merienda and dinner, each one is hearty, nutritious, and made with love. That’s why it’s called comfort food.
But if you’re looking for Filipino comfort food with a twist, Lola Cafe is here to deliver… literally! This house-turned-restaurant first started out in Tomas Morato, and has expanded to include branches in Mandaluyong and Pasay. Known for modern-style dishes like the Crispy Tadyang Rice Bowl and Truffle Lengua— rich and creamy slices of ox tongue with the earthy taste of truffle— Lola Cafe is your go-to for something innovative yet nostalgic all the same.
Plus, who can ever forget their bestselling Bone Marrow Sisig? It’s a creative twist on the classic meat, onion and chili combination, but this time, it’s served on a beef bone. It event has grilled bone marrow for extra meatiness too!
And you can get a hold of these right now! Starting April 5 (that’s today!), Lola will be opening up their Scout Lozano branch for pick up or delivery from 10 AM to 6 PM. How awesome is that?
