Comfort is a taste we’ll always find ourselves cravings for.
We may journey through the city in search of new flavors to excite our appetites, find new favorites, and bring those restaurants and cafes’ impact on our palates with us to set our standards higher, but nothing can ever replace the familiar taste of comfort that can only be found at home.
A team of food photographers in the Philippines, I Shoot Food Manila has recently made the acquaintance of an aspiring addition to the city’s cafe scene. Founded by a family with a genuine love for food, Cafe Poblacion is slowly building itself to soon become a haven for diners who enjoy places that make them feel at home. For a food photographer, Manila is a great venue for food ventures; but even our ISFM team, which has encountered a lot of delicacies by different brilliant chefs already, would agree that there are certain hungers that only home can fill.
They turn home-cooked favorites into modern-style dishes that you’ll surely look forward to. What started out as grandmother’s cooking hobby eventually became a daughter’s passion, and now a granddaughter’s blooming business. With recipes made richer as they were handed down from one generation to the next, our team was able to witness various fresh ingredients forming a meal masterpiece.
To a food photographer, Philippines is known for its classic cuisine that look good and taste even better. One of such classics is Kare-kare, a traditional Filipino stew made complete by a thick and luscious peanut sauce. Its crispy chops of lechon kawali is complimented justly by the positively overwhelming taste of peanuts and their own version of bagoong for a fulfilled finish.
And because we are genuine lovers of food as well, our food photographer appreciates Manila restaurants that think outside the box and innovate to make dining experiences a little more exciting, as if seeing and tasting an old and all-too-familiar food for the first time again.
Come home to Cafe Poblacion!
