Celeb couple opens city resto
Barely two months in operation, Filipino singer-songwriter Chito Miranda and Neri Naig’s new restaurant in DMCI Homes’ Outlook Ridge Residences along V. delos Reyes St., Outlook Drive, Baguio is consistently attracting a crowd of diners, both tourists and locals.
The couple’s new business venture, a franchise of the Lime and Basil Thai Restaurant in Alfonso, Cavite, had its grand launch on May 22 after holding a soft opening for one month.
Apart from savoring good food and enjoying a scenic view, guests were treated to a mini-concert by Chito who performed timeless Parokya Ni Edgar’s hits during the restaurant’s grand launch.
Chito and Neri along with their business partners, chefs Orvin and Sigrid Sayos, were elated to see the venue packed with customers eager to taste Lime and Basil’s delicious Thai dishes.
Orvin and Sigrid, owners of the original Lime and Basil Thai Restaurant in Cavite, were overwhelmed with the welcome their new restaurant has been getting since its soft opening in Baguio.
Unlike Orvin and Sigrid, Chito and Neri already knew people in Baguio would troop to Outlook Ridge Residences to enjoy Pad Thai, pomelo salad, and vegetarian Thai dishes, among other Lime and Basil favorites.
With the Lime and Basil brand already famous among Tagaytay foodies, Neri said the challenge for them and their business partners was to find a place in Baguio with a similar ambiance, perfect to enjoy good food and appreciate the cool breeze and panoramic view of the country’s Summer Capital.
Out of 30 properties they visited in the city, Neri said only DMCI Homes’ boutique leisure condominium fit their requirements for the location of their new restaurant.
For Chito, there is no better location for their restaurant than at Outlook Ridge Residences.
This makes him all the more confident more people will pat-ronize Lime and Basil Thai Restaurant Baguio City. – Press release
