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.

Pancit in Bagoong Balayan with Spanish Sardines – the Pinoy ‘Pancit’ (rice noodles) but flavored with ‘Bagoong’ (shrimp paste) and topped with Spanish sardines. A unique version of  balanced savory flavors.
