Do you want to travel back in time to try 1913’s version of Pancit and experience the difference from its modern day counterpart?

Most of us no longer explore the pinoy culinary tradition and this can be blamed on the popularity of Italian and Japanese food.

Authentic Pinoy Food @ Travel Cafe Philippines
