Great eats at Peach Boy, Mandaluyong

I sometimes envy the residents of Mandaluyong: they often seem to be right smack in the middle of things. Almost every foodie destination is accessible, whether you go east, west, north or south in the metro.

And as if these people don’t have enough advantages when it comes to foodie destinations, a new and exciting one opened right in their turf.

Located at the corner of Calbayog and D.M. Guevarra Streets is Peach Boy, a delightful and Instagrammable resto serving up a fusion of Asian-American dishes everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

You might be wondering how the restaurant got its name. Well, one of first-time restaurateur and avid foodie Paolo Q. Rama’s favorite desserts is the peach cobbler, a confection made of peach slices and syrup poured into a pan then covered with batter or crumble before baking. You would be right in assuming that the peach cobbler takes pride of place in his restaurant’s menu.

Paolo also drew inspiration from the popular Japanese folk hero Momotarō or Peach Boy, a young boy found inside a large peach who eventually grew up to seek for and fight ogres terrorizing his village with the help of some animals he befriended on his journey.

The restaurant does take you on an interesting culinary journey with dishes ranging from favorite Filipino breakfast items to Hawaiian-Japanese fusion dishes and classic American sandwiches and pastries.

With the help of award-winning chef and consultant Sonny Mariano, Paolo came up with an exciting menu influenced by some of his favorite cuisines from different cultures, as well as demonstrates the versatility of the peach as an ingredient. Together with fellow foodies, I was able to taste a wonderful curation of these dishes during Peach Boy’s recent media event.
