Wild Bamboo @ SM City Iloilo

I admire young entrepreneurs, for me they have their motivation and goals in life planned. It's definitely moving forward and trying to prove themselves. Meet Paolo Sarabia Treñas, 19 and one of the sons of Cong. Jerry Treñas. I see him as a business-minded individual who just got his big break in doing business that is actually part of his course. Even though he spends time studying in Manila, his enthusiasm and burning desire to succeed can be seen in his eyes.

He took over his mom's spot at the populous food court of SM City Iloilo and he's glad that his other siblings are there to support him. I'm sure his parents are really proud of him.

He just opened Wild Bamboo last Wednesday and told me that a lot of people really lined-up to try their Japanese offerings. Of course, my besfriend Krishia and I had to visit and meet him there personally after having a few conversations online. As expected, he was hands-on in the preparation of their food and I see their staff eager to know their food very well. When I approached their counter to see what to eat for lunch, I was amazed. I surely missed dining at the foodcourt where the food is already there in front of you and you'll just have to choose and pay. But this time it was Paolo's treat for us. He even gave us desserts from Carlo's whoch is available at their counter.

In a competitive world of business where you stand side-by-side with other food establishments in the area, one must really try to do his best to offer quality food at an average price. I'm sure this guy has just started and I'm very honored to be their guest at Wild Bamboo.

"I'll be returning soon, hungry for more!"
