FROZEN 'LUTONG BAHAY' MEALS FROM KITCHEN CITY
Kitchen City has created frozen meals of top Filipino dishes such as beef caldereta, kare-kare, adobo, bulalo, sisig, paksiw, sinigang, laing, and gising-gising.
Prices range from P250 to P550 for a family serving good for four to five people.
One of the biggest canteen concessionaires in the country, Kitchen City's decision to serve frozen meals is its way of continuing to provide employment to over 300 staff in the commissary.
The company delivers in Metro Manila, Rizal, and parts of Laguna and Cavite, and will soon open hubs in Bulacan and other cities.
Orders can be made through the Kitchen City website or Facebook page, or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
