61-year-old Bryan Reano was working as a waiter in Paris for 15 years when he met the love of his life, Rosalinda.
Never mind that she was a thousand miles away. Distance didn’t stop them from falling in love.
They met online three years ago and it was not long after that when Reano uprooted his life to start a new one with her.
After selling his house and car, he moved to Bacolod city to be with Rosalinda for good.
Sadly, Reano fell on hard times but he used his years of culinary experience to reinvent the beloved Pinoy merienda dishes Turon and Lumpia.
They secret to their unique dishes is using specially made fruit jams, aside from the usual banana and jackfruit, for their turon and various viands such as chicken curry for their lumpia.
They now happily sell their own brand of the beloved pinoy merienda dishes side by side with pride.
The popular morning show, Abs-cbn’s ‘Umagang Kay Ganda’ featured their heartwarming story.
