Before Valentines, Isla Sugbu Seafood City at the Grand Convntion Center of Cebu welcomed guests, members of the media and bloggers to their Blogcon. Along with Flavours of Iloilo, we arrived on time for lunch at the Tsay Cheng grand Chinese restaurant. A city tour around Cebu City's famous tourists spots was done after the lunch.

THE VENUE
A few minutes before the event started, we arrived at the restaurant still located at the Grand Convention Center of Cebu and had some time to take photos of the place. I was so impressed to see how it was so spacious, well-lit and designed with a bountiful supply of seafood from the rich Visayan sea. Most importantly, I didn't notice any fishy odor.

The crabs, angel wings clam and other shellfishes that they have ready to be cooked are all in good shape and definitely looks fresh.

Kuya J | SM City Iloilo Northwing

A few weeks after opening at the Northpoint of SM City Iloilo, Kuya J flew its brand ambassador singer-actor and businessman Jericho Rosales. The members of the local media, bloggers and customers had a chance to meet, greet, have selfies and listen to Jericho sing live.

A passionate food-lover himself, Jericho is very glad to endorse Kuya J restaurant and share some of his favorite dishes such as Crispy Pata, Kare-kare and coffee after a hearty meal.

The company's CEO Mr. Winglip Chang answered a few questions thrown by the media like "Does the J in the restaurant's name stands for Jericho?"

"Actually, the most common Filipino names starts with J such as Juan, Jose  and a lot more. So it's just a fitting tribute."

 After successfully launching itself as the country’s bagong bida, Kuya J Restaurant undoubtedly gained a deluge of supporters who can’t help but fall in love with its delicious cooking. But more than that, if there’s a pivotal thing that the restaurant earned, it’s the incredible warm reception and the overflowing love of the customers.   

It is clearly evident how customers have expressed their approval for Kuya J after trying its heartfelt cooking. It has received overwhelming messages of appreciation and satisfaction, which are posted in social media and spread through word of mouth. Because of this, Kuya J’s heart was definitely filled with incomparable joy.  

But of course, this great affection from the customers stems from Kuya J’s mouthwatering dishes that are always made from the heart, coupled with remarkable service.  
Come to think of it, maybe love is the secret ingredient—the reason why its customers adore its dishes and keep coming back for more. If it’s true, then you can only expect Kuya J to add more of it this year, as its new campaign expresses every Kuya’s love for food. You know what they say; the way to a person’s heart is through the stomach.

Aside from that, what exactly is in store for the brand this 2016? Well, for a start, because Kuya J has received an incredible amount of support, it will gladly give back the love by opening up 80 new stores in various parts of the country, specifically at SM Davao; Solenad 3, Sta. Rosa Laguna; SM Cauayan, Isabela; Lucky Chinatown Manila; Ayala Serin, Tagaytay; Otis, Manila; and SM Cabanatuan to name a few. 

Take note: that’s just the beginning of more things to come.  
All in all, Kuya J Restaurant will be spreading a tasty kind of love throughout the year. And since we believe that in this world, all we need is love, the restaurant believes that the addition of Crispy Pata, Lumpia Presko, and Kare-Kare and a whole lot of offerings won’t hurt.
