Rural folks in the Philippines love to congregate in small make-shift huts or street corner stands and share endless gossip, chit-chat, and local news over home-cooked meals and specialties served on improvised counters and seating areas. These favorite hangouts are known as “pondahans.”
“Pondahan Fusion Restaurant, Café & Bar” lends a unique and friendly atmosphere that blends flavor, effects, texture, sights and sounds that provide a different dining experience.
