5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch

I traveled all the way to Batasan Hills to attend the 5 Loaves and 2 Fish Launch. There is no place that is far for a person who loves food, right? :D

The name of the restaurant sound's familiar. It came name from the bible Mark 6:41.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch

Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept bringing the bread to the disciples so the could distribute it to the people. He also divided the fish for everyone to share. - Mark 6:41 

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch

As soon as I entered their resto, I already felt a homey vibe. It is how the owners wants their customers to feel. Besides, all the dishes were the owner's specialty at their home. The design is a combination of charm and warm, modern and rustic. The design also shows elements of wood. They offer comfort food that is not only good for the heart, but also good for the soul. 

Yes, you heard me right, dishes here are all homemade by the owner Ms Dinah Grace. It was all leveled up by Chef Jay. I loved how they displayed the food during the launch. It came with different verses from the bible.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch

Before the program started, the Lavosh was first served. According to Ms Dinah Grace, this is their banner or their bestselling item on their menu. She is really proud of this that she had won at the last Ultimate Taste Test 2011 presenting Lavosh.

The Lavosh (Luh-vosh) P250, is an Armenian unleavened flat bread. It is a cracker, a thin crisp bread that originated in the Turkish region. Mostly used to scoop up food. a perfect appetizer to whet your appetite for a starter, best with our assortment of gourmet dips and spreads! Their dips is consists of  Chicken Liver Patee, Garlic Oil with Dulong, Pesto Brulee and Fresh Tomato Coriander Salsa. I love the Chicken Liver Patee on this bunch.

The program started with a simple prayer from the owner. Ms Dinah Grace then introduced on how the 5 Loaves and Fish started. She remembered she was always an assistant of her mom from the kitchen. Moving forward, when she got married, her husband encouraged her to continue cooking and attend cooking classes. Even at parties she usually cooks and had the lavosh for the visitors. They first had a small cafeteria in Tiendesitas but lo and behold come July 2015 they finally have the 5 Loaves & 2 Fish. The name was not the initial plan, but when they tried to register their chosen name, it was already taken. So she prayed hard for the name that will reflect their beliefs and something that will strike up a conversation. And it led her to the bible, John Chapter 6, Mark 6:41.

Finally let me show the food that was served during the launch.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - High 5 Salad

High 5 Salad - To Share P265. The intense sweet-sour flavor of balsamic-vinegar and guava puree lend a pleasant and unique taste to this medley of salad greens, sundried tomatoes, candied nuts, diced guava fruit, grated parmesan cheese.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Vongole

This is their Vongole Pasta P299. It is light yet tasteful. The clams are fresh and sauteed in garlic and extra virgin olive oil with white wine and a wedge of lemon.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti

Right here is the Chicken Parmesan Spaghetti. Chicken fillet topped with mozarella cheese plus their house-blend tomato sauce. This is another favorite of mine.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Lengua Estofado

My first time to try Lengua Estofado! It was made from ox tongue and it was really delicious! So its not surprising that this is one of their bestseller.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Salpicao

Their Salpicao P375 was really tender and tasty. Cubes of beef terderloin, overload garlic, cooked in olive oil and their house-blend seasoning.

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Salmon with Four Cheese

If you don't like salmon, you might think twice when you taste their Salmon with Four Cheese P385. Fillet of baked salmon, topped with melted cheese on a bed of mashed potatoes. This is one of my favorites.

Our meal will not be complete without the desserts! The cakes are their specialty. I can guarantee you that this is the best thing ever!

Aside from their not-so-sweet blueberry cheesecake, I also loved this Dulce De Leche Salted Caramel Cake. It is not too sweet but still you will crave for more!

5 Loaves & 2 Fish Launch - Tablea Cake

The Tablea cake was oozing with original tablea chocolate. The bitter taste is there and also the sweetness. 5 Loaves and 2 Fish highly supports LOKAL. The cacao that is used for this cake originally comes from Davao.
