When you order this homemade food, you won’t want to put your CUCHARA down

Although most of us are stuck at home, not everyone still has the time to cook our meals. Some of us still have to attend to piling up work while we juggle various household chores. If you have kids then that’s another story.

So, if you’re craving for some good old Filipino comfort food, you can turn to CUCHARA Homemade.

CUCHARA Homemade is a small start-up family business that was concocted in 2019, a little while before the pandemic. Although it is new, it is the first time the family dove into the food business.

Way back in 2006, the family opened a catering service which was named “Lady chef.” Generally, the operations were overseen by the parents of the owners of CUCHARA. Although Lady Chef grew drastically, the business was paused when their Mama was diagnosed with diabetes. After a while, the operation of Lady Chef went to a full stop and it eventually perished.

In 2019, the family had an idea to start and open a new food service business but didn’t know where to start or what to call it. Suddenly, out of nowhere, one of the sisters in the family came up with the name Cuchara.


Cuchara — it’s the first thing we ask for if we need to taste something. “May kutsara ba?” “May serving spoon ba?” “Penge po ng spoon” These are the questions we hear almost anywhere when food is involved. So, they thought why not? It does make sense, we all need cuchara!

Their only hope is that everyone will enjoy every cuchara of their dishes.
