Having a great hearty meal is one of the best things about being human, the incessant need to sustain ones appetite can be an overarching experience. Dining in a buffet is exactly that of an experience, with a vast selection of food and unlimited access to great cooking. If there’s one thing about the Filipino spirit, it’s the ability to enjoy food with people and making it a collective memory.
There are several buffets that lurk around Metro Manila and in some places outside of the city, specifically in Tagaytay, Baguio, Cebu, and Davao among many other popular places in the Philippines. One notable buffet Filipino families and “barakadas” come back for is Chef Laudico’s Gueverra’s Filipino buffet in San Juan City, Metro Manila.
Guevarra’s first opened back in March 2013 and is owned by popular Filipino chef, Ronaldo Laudico. What makes Guevarra’s a Filipino staple aside from the comfort Filipino food many locals and tourists enjoy, is the ambiance of the restaurant. The former ancestral house turned dining establishment welcomes people to “come home” and experience true Filipino lunch and dinner like no other.
The restaurant is located at 387 P. Guevarra Street, corner Argonne Street, Addition Hills, San Juan City and is open from Monday to Friday from 11 AM to 2 PM for lunch, and 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM for dinner. Rates start at Php 399 for a weekday lunch, Php499 for dinner, and Php 599 for lunch and dinner on weekends, except Sundays.
