No less than Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat supports Anthony Taberna’s efforts to promote Filipino food through his restaurant.
The event, wherein it was announced that Anthony’s Ka Tunying Café is now full-service restaurant simply called Ka Tunying’s, was also attended by reporter Pia Gutierrez; TV hosts Tina Marasigan, Ariel Ureta, Pat and Roxy; model and mommy vloggers Melissa Ricks and Helga Krapf; beauty queens Angelee Delos Reyes and MJ Lastimosa; comedians Long Mejia and Janus Del Prado; and “Guerrero 2” movie stars Mia Suarez and Genesis Gomez.
Richard Poon, Rapido, AC Bonifacio, Nico Nicolas, Jiro Custodio, Ai Dela Cruz and Deo and Bambi performed special numbers.
Together with its new look and logo, the all-new Ka Tunying’s carries the tagline “Panlasang Makabayan.” The relaunch of the restaurant was held at the SM North The Block.
The aim is to preserve and promote Filipino food when most Pinoys are saturated with an array of different global cuisines and food trends. Ka Tunying’s mission also reinforces the Department of Tourism’s global campaign to support our rich cuisine and dining culture with the hashtag, #EatsmorefuninthePhilippines.
Ka Tunying’s recently opened its 9th branch (at the NAIA Terminal 3 Domestic Area) and, soon, its 10th branch (in Tagaytay). Ka Tunying’s provides bread to passengers on board Genesis Bus.
