The Sunday afternoon drive up to Antipolo City turned out to be a pleasant surprise! We found the Pinto Art Museum (PAM) and Cafe located in a sprawling property called Silangan Gardens. It was a wonderful escape to be surrounded by nature, culture and good food.
Patron of the arts and founder Dr. Joven Cuanang displays his collection of artworks from promising and established artists. Antonio Leaño designed the museum and turned every nook and cranny of this property into a masterpiece!
The Pinto Cafe is operated by Bizu. The menu heading “Siraulo”is quite funny as Dr. Joven describes his place as madness. The food selections are limited but really good. Love Chef Alexander Tanco’s truffle oil tagiatelle (P 355); and for P595 the set menu comes with soup, entree and dessert. Must try the lamb shanks!
