Just in time for his birthday last July 9, empoy opened his new restaurant, Wayback 90’s, in baliuag, bulacan.
“Apat kaming magkaka-partner sa business na ito,” he says. “’Yong isa sa mga ka-partner ko, may dati nang existing business. Kaya lang, parang binitawan ng ibang kasama niya, kaya sinalo namin.”
empoy says he was the one who thought of the restaurant’s name: “Kaya Wayback 90’s, kasi batang Nineties ako. Kasi, minsan na lang kami magkitakita no’ng mga ka-batch ko. Parang ito ’yong pinakatambayan ngayon ng mga magkakabarkada no’ng Nineties.”
the restaurant features one wall dedicated to Nineties memorabilia: a Nintendo Family computer console, Gameboys, brick Games, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, and several pieces of yo-yos. Its menu includes Filipino and Asian fare, such as gising-gising, pinaputok na tilapia, sizzling sisig, and oriental chicken. “open kami for lunch hanggang dinner. ’Tapos, ’yong seven p.m. onwards, puwede na silang mag-unwind, ’yong sinumang galing sa trabaho.”
empoy’s Mommy cecil and his stepfather, Jing de Guzman, also have a catering business called tito Jing’s Pancit at Iba Pa. “Mga lutong bahay ang specialty,” empoy says.
Mommy cecil, who took up a cookery course at teSDA (technical education and Skills Development Authority), takes orders for packed lunches and platters. In fact, the flavorful seafood pasta empoy serves the YeS! team was made by Mommy cecil. “Gumagawa din kami ng pancit palabok, bihon, canton, saka mga kakanin,” she says.
customers may contact Mommy cecil at +044-767-7152.
