Our Story Begins In The Summer Capital of the Philippines......
Our resident cook is so in love with cooking, that after graduating from a nursing school in Baguio City, he started a small restaurant along Marcos Highway called "Asian Delights". In a short time, he gained many loyal customers and branched out to two other locations in the city, including one in Mines View Park. People flocked to taste his flavorful foods and delicacies, especially his "halo-halo", which was dubbed "one of the best in Baguio". His original "Pinoy Mochi" is still a sought after dessert in gatherings in the City of Pines.
Closing his restaurant to migrate to Central Florida was heart breaking for June. But soon his passion was rekindled, he showcased his innate talent for cooking at gatherings with family and friends. His friends' faith in his calling prompted him to pursue his destiny. And thus, "Pistang Pilipino" is born.
