Chef Laudico Guevarra's Grand Launching

Going to Chef Laudico Guevarra's grand launching was not something I was expecting to attend.  It was posted in the Pinoy Bloggers FB page.  Thanks to Ms. Ma Joy Calipes-Felizardo, I got to attend this very momentous event.  

Present during the ribbon cutting were very important people.  Check out the photos below.

Bobby Yan was the emcee for the afternoon.  Beside him, one of the finalists of X-Factor Philippines, Mark Mabasa.

Not to be missed are the paintings done by artist Vincent Padilla with the theme "Time Taken by Brushstrokes."  Here is one of those paintings.  

Also, Vincent did a painting of Chef Rolando and Chef Jacqueline while posing for him.  And finished it right then and there.

Artist Vincent's 9-year-old daughter, Cezanne Vermeer Padilla, played classical tunes and wowed the crowd with her amazing talent.

There were actually two ribbon-cutting photo ops this blogger experienced.  The second one was where the buffet was served.

Of course, the event wouldn't be complete without the buffet that was prepared for the guests.  Mayor Guia Gomez takes the first serving of one of the many delicious and delectable dishes.

Here are the dishes that were carefully prepared by Guevarra's by Chef Laudico.  These are just a few of them.  There were more than meets the eye and your dining experience would never be the same again.

Chili Crabs

Crispy Pork Pochero

Pakbet Bagnet

Seafood Palabok

The Mango Crepe

While we were having our taste of the delicious food, there were dancers entertaining the guests swaying to old tunes with their very nice costumes of the historical times, a la Maria Clara style, which really were eye-catching.  

To sum it all up, I'm sure you'll find Guevarra's by Chef Laudico a place to be if you want you and your family to have that very homey ambiance, thanks to Spanish and Chinese influenced interiors and enjoying the food of your choice to your heart's delight. 

Or if you have a certain theme for your company which is very 1940-ish in nature, this is the place to be as there are function rooms that could serve your company's needs well. 

If you want to have your important occasions held there, their rates vary from Buffet rates and Kids' Buffet rates.  For the buffet rates, Weekday Lunch (Monday to Friday), it's P399 + 10% service charge.  Weekday Dinner (Monday to Thursday), P499 + 10% service charge.  Weekends (Friday Dinner to Sunday Dinner), P599 + 10% service charge.  

For Kids, this is actually cool, for kids three feet and below are free.  For kids three feet to four feet, 50%.  Kids at four feet and above at regular rates.  Don't you think that's a fair price?
