Newly opened boutique restaurant in Cebu City, “One Claypot House,” serves all-time favorite Southeast Asian cuisines
Recently opened on May 2012 in Cebu City, boutique-restaurant “One Claypot House” serves a fusion of various all-time favorite dishes from the Philippines and also from the neighboring countries of Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand.
This quaint-looking shop boasts an excellent, cozy ambiance for families who want a quiet time together, couples who are on romantic dates, and yuppies/teenagers/groupies who wish to catch-up all day long, while enjoying delicious dishes that can be shared together.
Head cook/Owner and Cebu-based, Winston Desierto, 32, came up with the idea of “One Claypot House” while working for his hard-earned money in Singapore for almost four years as an Interior Designer in a furniture shop. “Being an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) is tiringyet-fun. At the end of the day, you really have to work hard to earn a good pay. This forced me to save up, to dream big and have a business of my own one day, and do what I really like which is cooking,” says Winston.
Before flying to Singapore, he previously runs his own boutique shop where he does fashion/wedding ] design and tailoring for various clients including some Cebu socialites and famous personalities. With Winston’s background in design, passion in cooking, and exposure to Southeast Asian dishes in Singapore, “One Claypot House” came about. Most of the food in the menu are his very own favorites that’s why he worked hard in studying how to cook each one of them.
Located at the very heart of Cebu (#68 Don Gil Garcia St. Capitol Site 6000, Cebu City, Philippines), the restaurant is easily accessible from people working around the areas of Cebu Doctors, Provincial Capitol Building, and even those living within the vicinity.
When you visit, the must-try dishes include the famous “Lah-Lah-Lah Claypot” (Claypot Rice) from Singapore which mixes rice, a staple of most Southeast Asian countries, and pork/chicken and Chinese sausages. Other favorites are: Thailand’s “Sawasdee Noodle Salad” (Glass Noodles) which suits those who wish to try out a sweet-soury-and-spicy noodles; Malaysia’s “Milky Fried Fish Soup,” a healthy, milky soup perfect for health buffs; the “Tempting Seafood Pasta” and the “Super Meatballs” to answer various Pinoys’ pasta cravings.Winston adds, “Our marketing strategy behind the restaurant is through word-of-mouth PR and social media. We are hoping that people can come by our resto, take pictures of themselves while eating our dishes, and upload them on Facebook or blog about it.” After all, the ambiance of the restaurant and the food here are really worth sharing to other people.
