Juan Pastry: Deliciously different takes on our favorite Pinoy food at El Fresco Food Park


Juan Pastry is barely a month old and it has been drawing lots of foodies, food lovers and the like at El Fresco Park in Quezon City. I like their take on chosen Filipino food, familiar yet with a different preparation and well-thought way of serving.
