• 10 Must-Try Dishes at Dekada Historic Filipino Cuisine

    Dekada prides itself in Filipino dishes cooked the old-fashioned way
  • Dekada Historic Filipino Cuisine, a Filipino restaurant located at the 2nd level of Glorietta 3 in Makati, may make one feel like he is lost in time, what with dishes named after historic events and heroes, but co-owner Ricky Laudico affirms it. “Dekada is our tribute to the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. We were so fascinated with history and with Filipino dishes that we tried to match them. In fact, our marketing team is trying to get in touch with descendants of our national heroes, and we imagine it would be great if we can prepare the favorite dishes of Juan Luna, Bonifacio, or Tandang Sora.”
