Chef Laudico Guevarra’s, by chefs Roland and Jacqueline Laudico, is a 1920s heritage house converted into a restaurant and events place where guests can enjoy an upscale but affordable Filipino buffet dining experience. It’s for special business meetings or big family celebrations. It’s not a place to treat your friends if you’re on a tight budget. We recommend the angus beef tapa, kare-kare, grilled gindara and cream dory with mango curry sauce.
