Remembering how this all started, she shares how Cafe Voi La was such a huge success that when she was asked again to create a new concept for Evia Mall, she said that that would again, have to be another story – and that’s where she got the name for this new restaurant of hers.

As you enter, you’ll immediately notice the eclectic and whimsical interiors. Ica, who’s also a design enthusiast, let her imagination run wild as she tells all sorts of stories through the walls filled with inspiring quotes, the colorful sofas, the patterned lamps that hang on the sides, and other cute and quirky elements around every corner.

Growing up in a hacienda, she recalls how she watched with admiration as her yaya whips up delicious meals for their family and was even taught how to cook at the age of two! The dishes she offer are inspired by her travels in the countries where they all originated. Although she never enrolled in a professional cooking class, she always had this burning passion for cooking and believes that everything she creates in the kitchen comes from the heart.
