THE “P” TALKS!
BY: Pilar Mateo
ONE just can’t miss doing the food business in Manila. Especially celebrities and their kin.
Jericho Rosales‘ manager Marinez Elizalde hinted us on the new business the actor’s son, Saint and the mom ventured into.
Kai Palomares and Santino Rosales ventured into a warehouse dining business called KAISAINT. A combination of their names pronounced as ka-ee-san. It is located at KM 14, West Service Road Merville, Paranaque City (It’s worth braving the traffic for it! ).
It features unique art pieces by David Francisco, Cris Villanueva, Zarin Carbonell, Anna Palomares and both Kai & Santino’s works. KAISAINT is about art, food and space. It is not your usual restaurant experience since there is much to see while indulging on their Asian-Western selection at its retro warehouse-style place.
Customers will pay and order at the counter while tables are free-seating in the ground floor area and no attendants stand by your side (your conversations remain private ).
KAISAINT will have the 2nd floor of its restaurant as a multi-purpose area which can be used as a meeting room, private space, parties and special dinners at a minimal fee. It offers the option of a buffet set up or set meals for 15-30 people. The owners refer to it as the White Room because it is painted in white color as opposed to the ground floor with black and gray shades.
Kai and Santino welcome you to their warehouse dining and aim for you to feel at home as they opened it last March 2019. Their employees are from all walks of life and culture. It is noteworthy that they hire people without the restrictions of age, gender, culture, looks, disability and the like just as long as they are honest and able to work. Another plus is that KAISAINT will offer discounts to corporate tie ups, solo parents, students, persons with disabilities and senior citizens with the show of their corresponding identification card.
Follow KAISAINT art.food.space on instagram “@thekaisaint” and facebook “Kaisaint art food space” for updates and special promos.
Is Saint still not joining the bandwagon? Of actors and singers. Just like his Dad! Or he is better as an athlete? Or model?
Whatever he dips his fingers into, definitely he will rock our world.
For the now, try out his and his Mom’s comfort zone.
THE BROTHER OF actor Rey Abellana who is foremost a singer, JOJO also opened his own restaurant.
Called ABELLANA’S INASAL TO GO, it had its soft opening last April 11. It is located at 389B Bgy. Culiat inTandang Sora Quezon City, near Tara Condominium.
Jojo’s take on his new baby.
“Matagal ko ng plano ito, Tita. Ngayon ko lang naharap.
“Basically, it offers Inasal chicken, Kansi Bulalo ng Ilonggo, Boneless Bangus, Liempo… It’s all grill style for to-go…
“It’s my specialty tita yung ihaw ihaw hilig ko po sya talaga ever since. Ako ‘ata mahilig magluto sa amin.”
Not busy with projects, he is just waiting for calls to guest on TV shows.
“Separated na ako, Tita for more than a year. But yup I have 3 kids already one girl, two boys, 15, 12 and 8.
“I hope you can visit and taste my specialty!”
Support his to-go-inasal!
