TINAPAYAN FESTIVAL, House of Breads – Speaks of Real Bread Flavor and No Other

Tinapayan Festival

When a small business turns into something near to an institution in a community after years of being there, it only means one thing – there is something definitely good in it. For Tinapayan Festival: House of Breads, bringing the real value and importance of bread to the public is their main thrust.

Situated at the corner of Dapitan and Don Quijote Sts. In Manila is a business that has been there for nearly 3 decades. What started out as a simple bread store is now an establishment that serves both soft and sweet dough breads to the public. Owned by Mr. Lucito Chavez, this panadero – as he calls himself, is a person truly dedicated in making his breads nearer to the consuming public and true to what a sweet and soft dough bread should be. His aim is to make people truly value this staple food in terms of nutrients and the craftsmanship that goes with each piece created and served.

Tinapayan Festival is currently serving loaves – standard and specialized, cakes, savory breads, cookies, sweet and soft dough creations such as cheese rolls and ensaymadas. They have a bread creation for nearly all occasions.
Whatever bread creation you choose, Tinapayan Festival stays true to deliver to you good quality bread; not too sweet or salty, simply just right for all ages. You will taste real bread flavor and the added flavor ingredients in every bite; such is the experience you will have when you try their specialized loaves, cheese rolls, ensaymadas, and other bread creations. They also make sure that what is served to you is freshly baked for the day. Tinapayan Festival bakes their bread the whole day, every day.

Enjoy a wide variety of loaves! From your standard American loaf (commonly called as tasty), to cheese loaves, to ube loaves and even wheat loaves – for the healthy minded individual, they have something for you. As a gift, either to yourself, your family, friends or love ones, choose from their wide selection such as ensaymada – regular or special (either with red egg, with ham or ube), cheese rolls – regular or premium, ube twirls, potato breads, banana cakes (sliced or whole), bars (caramel, blueberry or strawberry), round cakes (almond cheese cakes, cheese dinner roll, holiday bread, black forest, etc), brownies, cookies and pianono.

2015 Best Ramen in Manila by a Japanese Reviewer

Gaku Nakamura is a self-styled Japanese Ramen Consultant living in Manila. Last year, he listed his top 10 ramen with Ramen Nagi topping the list. But with a number of new and authentic restaurants popping up, here is some of Gaku-san’s top ramen for 2015!

#5 Mendokoro Ramenba

MUST TRY: Shoyu Tonkatsu

Gaku says: “Mendokoro has tonkotsu-based ramen with chashu. The restaurant looks just like a Japanese-style kitchen and it reminds me of a good ramen restaurant in Japan, Afuri. The taste of the broth and chasu is very nice.”

#4 Mitsuyado Seimen

MUST TRY: Cheese Tsukemen

Gaku says: “Tsukemen soup is yuzu flavor and the noodles are thick. I have never thought that cheese can fit wih Tsukemen, but you will be satisfied once you taste it at Mitsuyado!

#3 Ramen Daisho

MUST TRY: Miso Ramen

Gaku says: “The best Miso ramen in Manila! It is located along Shaw Blvd. Although not located in a major mall, lots of people go there just to eat Daisho’s delicious ramen. Not only ramen, but their gyoza are also delicious.”

#2 Ramen Nagi

MUST TRY: Butao Ramen

Gaku says: “Nagi’s tonkotsu-based broth tastes like real Japanese tonkotsu. If you’re a first-time visitor, try Butao. When you’ve eaten half of it, try to add their Fire sauce to change the taste. You can also change the firmness of the ramen and the toppings based on your preference.”
