The affable and hands-on owner, Evelyn Wise, shares how she puts hard work and passion into her restaurant business. “Every time, I am at the kitchen, cooking and concocting sauces, I feel like dancing — dancing with my wok,” she smiles. Though she lived in Europe for almost 20 years, when she returned home it was clear to her mind that she wanted to put up her own Filipino restaurant. Cooking is like second nature to this native of Nueva Ecija.
From its meticulous ingredients to the way it’s cooked, Tia Belle’s food absolutely stems from the all-important Filipino trait and that is hospitality. “We want to be of service to our fellow countrymen while keeping and incorporating the important values and traditions of what being Filipino is all about,” she quips.
