(Inside Manila) In between the homes of famous Chinatowns—Manila and Quezon City—hides a little temple where you can relive and glorify your love for spicy food.

Despite the steaming competition of Chinese restos along Banawe area in Quezon City, a hole in the wall Szechuan Fusion Restaurant, Templo, had joined the race with its modern menu as a clever game plan.

While they serve the classic xiao ‘mai and yeung chow fried rice, the Templó team have incorporated upgraded their ancestors treasured recipes into the menu, making them a cut above the rest. 

“Yung karamihan ng food na sineserve namin ay galing pa sa mga ancestors ng business partners naming Chinese—so talagang family recipe talaga nila. Tapos, minomodernize  namin at mas pinasarap para mag fit sa generation natin ngayon,” Mia Pangyarihan, former Sexbomb group member and Templo’s co-Owner, told Inside Manila.

The actress turned businesswoman also shared that they have kept in mind the customers’ satisfaction while they were building the Sichuan-inspired resto.  

“Lahat ng nasa menu ay pinagisipan, sinigurado naming perfect at ma-appreciate ng bawat customer na kakain dito,” she added.
