A diplomat, a war veteran, a respected statesman, Carlos P. Romulo was a man who left an indelible mark in our country’s history. Romulo Café, the restaurant that now bears his name, gives us a glimpse into another facet of his life, that of a loving father and grandfather who held court over family gatherings overflowing with good food.
On July 26, Saturday, 9am-1pm, The Maya Kitchen presents Alessandra Romulo Squillantini and her husband Enzo Squillantini who will share heirloom recipes passed down from their great grandmother, grandmother and uncle.
The dishes include Ginataang Sigarilyas with Tinapa (winged beans cooked in coconut milk and topped with smoked tinapa); Adobong Manok sa Gata (boneless chicken cooked adobo style with coconut milk); Tito Greg’s Kare-Kare (oxtail and tripe stew in a peanut-based sauce served with steamed vegetables and Romulo Café’s house bagoong); and Tropical Turon, pineapple turon served with lemon sauce.
