Razon’s of Guagua promises good times ahead

by | Food, Lifestyle

By now, most everyone in Dubai has gotten word about Razon’s opening in Karama.

Indeed, news that the best halo-halo in the Philippines is now available in the UAE created excitement such that suddenly everyone was at Razon’s in Block 2 of Wasl Hub to check it out.

“The Razon’s family together with our partners here in Dubai and the UAE want to extend our sincerest gratitude to all of you who have overwhelmingly supported us by coming to our opening,” said Jose Razon, Executive Vice President of the Razon’s Food Corp.

“However,” he added, “We would like to apologize for whatever shortcomings we had in terms of service and we promise to give you better service in the next few days that you will come and visit us.”

There have been several posts on social media from unsatisfied quarters who claimed they experienced delayed service. In light of this, Razon assured corrective measures have been put in place to address birth pains.

Razon also expressed hope more OFWs will come to have a taste of their authentic Filipino dishes.

“Hopefully, we will see you soon in our restaurant. Mangan ta na!,” said Razon.

Ambiance:

True to its origins in the Philippines, Razon’s of Guagua in Pampanga province, brings both cozy interiors as well as several spots to eat directly outside its shop. All of the staff were trained and brought from the Philippines to serve and welcome kababayans with our well-known hospitable and welcoming smiles.

Food:

Since all ingredients came directly from the Philippines, each bite of each item served brings in memories of your Razon’s experience back home. First timers are in for an amazing treat as each of Razon’s offerings cater to palates of various tastes.

Their signature Pancit Luglug is a package of deliciousness with firm noodles, a huge share of their signature sauce and toppings that add in a whole different dimension of flavor. Their Kapampangan Kare-Kare brings in the authentic taste of crisp and fresh vegetables with beef that’s so tender, it has soaked up the taste of the Kare-Kare. Add to this the usual side of their bagoong with each bite and you’ll have yourself asking for another portion of rice.

Their beefsteak and chicken caldereta also hit home with their blends of unique tastes that you can only create if you get ingredients back home, which adds to the nostalgia factor.

And now comes the champion – Razon’s Halo-Halo.

Filipinos, and even people from other nationalities have always wondered how the simple mix of shaved ice, milk, saging na saba, macapuno and leche flan create such a unique, remarkable taste. The mixture of the ice and milk alone already give initial yummy feels. The leche flan on its own taste really creamy with just the right amount of sweetness.

The ‘secret’ technique is to scrape all the way to the bottom to allow the shaved ice to mix thoroughly with the bananas, the leche flan, and the macapuno to give your tongue the ultimate Filipino dessert experience.

The Verdict:

OFWs, most especially Kampampangans who have been here for years without going home should not miss the opportunity to have a taste of Filipino Food that really strikes those memories of more carefree days back home. Never ever forget to order their Halo-halo!

The Filipino Times spoke to Jose Razon, Executive Vice President of Razon’s, who mentioned that this is just the beginning. “We want our kababayans to have a taste of our halo-halo and become fond of it. Our partner will take us all over Dubai and the UAE to bring joy to our kababayans through our halo-halo.”

Waleed Abdullah, local partner of Razon’s of Guagua in Dubai echoed this statement and said: “The vision for Razon’s is (to offer) real Filipino food that’s owned, managed, and operated by Filipinos. Ingredients are shipped from the Philippines so it’s a real authentic taste. We aim to establish multiple branches all over UAE and we hope to expand to the Middle East as well.”
