Chef Laudico Guevarra’s Offers New Yuletide Dishes this Christmas Season

The Filipino love for food is legendary and the holidays are definitely no exception. From Christmas hams to lechon, no Filipino Christmas celebration is complete without delicious food for loved ones to share.


The holiday season is in full swing and can be felt all across Guevarra's. Every inch of the restaurant is decked in red and green holiday cheer. Inside the restaurant, the ambiance is equally festive. The mood extends to the buffet table where dishes especially whipped up for the season await guests.


 “We prepared items that are popular during Christmas,” says chef Rolando “Lau” Laudico. The line-up includes Orange Chicken Galantina (chicken stuffed with seasoned pork meat in orange sauce), Pata Hamonado (pineapple-cured fresh pork ham), Roasted Turkey with Castañas and Chorizo, Menudo Pastel Pie (menudo meat pie in pastry crust) and Baked Macaroni Kaldereta (baked mac with beef kaldereta).

 “We incorporated a lot of queso de bola and ham,” he adds before pointing to the Queso de Bola Croquettes (edam cheese croquettes with surprise filling), and Ham and Cheese Ensaymada Sandwich.


 “We are also serving embutido because that’s a Christmas staple in our home,” he shares.
 “We have traditional items, that people look for during Christmas,” injects chef Jacqueline “Jac” Juarez-Laudico. So the dessert section features Bibingka and Puto Bumbong. “I included the Crema de Fruta  (cake with fruits, cream, and gelatin) because that’s something that I was making and selling when I was in high school and I remember how everyone ordered so much during Christmas,” she waxes nostalgic.

Here are some of the new Christmas dishes that you can try for a special Christmas dining experience with family, friends, and your significant others, as offered by Guevarra's.

 The 30-plus Christmas dishes will be rotated on different days and be made part of their regular buffet of 80 Filipino favorites. “No matter how often you come over, you will always find something new,” chef Lau guarantees. And with the extensive selection, every craving of every member of the family will be satisfied, making Chef Laudico Guevarra’s ideal for big group celebrations.


 The Yuletide dishes were revealed during a Christmas lighting ceremony witnessed by a few special friends and members of the media. During the meal, singers JV Decena and Joaquin Garcia filled the air with music as guests sampled the new creations.  The choir from Children’s Joy Foundation (CJF) also serenaded the crowd. CJF houses disadvantaged children and has been a beneficiary of Chef Laudico Guevarra’s for several years.
