The Historic Little Quiapo Restaurant

BF Homes in Parañaque City is a foodie's heaven. The place boasts of restaurants offering different cuisine. But just when you think you've seen it all, you're missing something if you haven't been to that historic Little Quiapo restaurant.

Their little branch in the south is hardly noticeable, but you'd be surprised by how big the place is, in terms of history. At first, I thought I was just hearing ho hum bluff mode stories 😂 but after a little research, this brand is definitely huge despite it's humble look. 


Little Quiapo was founded in 1949 and had its roots from an ice cream vendor offering his homemade dessert in hospitals. He was able to start a restaurant in U.P. Diliman after saving enough funds. It was then called Rendezvous and was later renamed to Little Quiapo because the place was often packed with people (diners), like Quiapo.

Because of the brand's origin, they're still proud of their signature ice cream and palabok recipe. 


With such a long history though, I wonder why they have not expanded like most food chains. I can only believe that they probably want to preserve heritage and not make the name too commercialized. But who knows?

As of the moment, I've found two branches; one, in BF Homes, Parañaque City (42 Aguirre Avenue Corner Lirag Street) and another in Diliman, Quezon City (90 Malakas Street). 

The website/app MunchPunch listed another Parañaque location (Bustamante Commercial Complex, Doña Soledad Ave., Don Bosco) but I don't remember seeing it or haven't noticed it. 

I also came across a website pointing to an Illinois, U.S.A. branch. See I'm guessing the latter is related since they have referenced the same founding year (or decade)?


Apart from their famed ice cream and palabok, they serve other Filipino dishes with their own twist.

Little Quiapo Menu

Below is kare-kare; one of the rice meals in the menu. It can also be ordered in full as kare-kare is one of their signature dishes. 

Next is the Comida China. It's another rice meal which probably pays homage to Chinese food (since comida literally translates to kitchen). It comes with fried chicken, Shanghai rolls, and Shanghai fried rice. 

They also serve burgers & sandwiches, noodles (in various sizes from short orders to S/M/L/XL/2XL), all-day breakfast, soups, salads, vegetables, pork, chicken, beef and seafood. 

Even the drinks served are of Filipino blend (like mango). 


The place exudes a homely feel; like dining in your own home. It's not easy to find it though but good ol' Google Maps or other navigation apps can help.
