Oh, I have to tell you about this Lasagna I ordered from a small business in Facebook called Cita’s Special Palabok, Lasagna, Kananin atbp. (and many more)! It was so creamy and the flavors just melted in my mouth. Every bite was super satisfying and my only regret was not ordering a bigger pan! It was so delicious that I needed to savor every bite because I knew I’ll be crying when it was all gone.
And Cita’s doesn’t only sell Lasagna, they also have variations of Palabok and Pancit Canton, Lumpiang Shanghai, Pork Barbeque, Tofu Sisig, Kakanin etc. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Super perfect for a party, right?
Since we’re technically still under quarantine because of the pandemic, social gatherings are still not encouraged. But, that doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate with our families at home. Celebrate birthdays, anniversaries of your family members and special occasions through the best way there is… With a lot of food, of course! Isn’t eating the best form of bonding activity there is?
Or even if you’re just hungry and want to feast at home, you can order anything from Cita’s wide selection of Lutong-Bahay (Home-cooked meals) and all-time favorite Filipino dishes! Trust me when I tell you that whatever you order is sure to make your tummies happy and your cravings completely satisfied. If you can’t finish your meal, refrigerate and reheat for later. Genius!
Cita’s is based in Mandaluyong and cater to most cities within Metro Manila. I would suggest you guys to order their biggest pan of Lasagna. I also like their Palabok, Barbecue and Lumpiang Shangai. Well, I like everything really so just order everything you can! They also sell big servings so better inquire first if they’re enough for your family. Also make sure to order them ahead of time, at least a day before you completely devour them.
Story Behind Cita’s from the Favorite Apo, Colin
Cita’s Lutong Bahay, named after our beloved Lola Cita was established during the first week’s of pandemic by my Titas, her 3 daughters. They have been cooking and selling pre-ordered food for years to close friends and relatives. The dishes they make have always been a staple to our family gatherings. We rarely order from restaurants because for us, our Titas cook the ultimate best version of our favorite foods. No competition there!
Since the pandemic started, small businesses have been popping up to get through the current situation. And to help our family gain extra income and continue to provide food for our friends and relatives, my cousins and I decided to set up a Facebook page for Cita’s Lutong Bahay. At first, we only offered few specialties in our menu to make sure that each tasted as special as the ones served in our own table. We were thrilled that everybody loved the special Palabok and Lasagna our Titas made! We already knew that these taste the best, but we were still surprised by the outpouring support and positive feedback that we not only got from friends, but from strangers who have tried our food for the first time. Not only did they become regular customers, but our food has become their favorites too. Now, we offer about 21 menu items!
Cooking has always been part of our family tradition and being able to share dishes we know and love is such a wonderful experience. Cooking for Cita’s got a lot more meaningful for our whole family, specially that we are doing it for our Lola.
What are you waiting for? Order from Cita’s today!
I’m sure a lot of families can relate to Cita’s story and I hope that we can continue supporting small Filipino businesses, especially during this crucial time. Guys I swear, you can taste the warmth and love from the dishes cooked from Cita’s Lutong Bahay because it’s truly fueled by their family’s love and care for each other. Sweet, right? I might just cry again. Hahaha.
