One of the perks of my job as a PR practitioner is I get to dine in some of the coziest restaurants. If an appointment brings me and my colleagues to a certain area, come breakfast, lunch or dinner time, we usually treat ourselves with a hearty meal.
When we had a meeting in the Serendra area, we chose Abe to answer our gastronomical prayers.
Abe (ah-beh) is the restaurant dedicated to Larry Cruz’ father, the late artist-writer, gourmet and bon vivant E. Aguilar “Abe” Cruz. The restaurant serves traditional Filipino food, mostly of Capampangan origin, and gourmet dishes inspired by Abe’s travels around the world. At Abe, food is prepared and served with a great deal of love while its concept and design provide the ideal setting for friends and family who wish to dine comfortably and have a good time.
You can never go wrong with Abe as the restaurant belongs to the LJC group of restaurants, that also include Abe’s Farm, Fely J’s Kitchen, Lorenzo’s Way, Bistro Remedios, Cafe Adriatico, Cafe Adriatico Express, Cafe Havana, Larry’s Cafe & Bar and Polka Dot Bakeshop. Yes, you can say that LJC knows food.
I can say that Abe’s restaurant offers relatively affordable Filipino food that can be compared to other Filipino themed restaurants in the metropolis. What I like about this is that it serves true Filipino food and I always believe that Capampangan dishes is one of the best dishes our country has to offer.
Aside from official functions, I can also recommend Abe’s to family and friends who just wants to enjoy good, authentic Filipino dish, in the company of their loved ones.
