“A meal is best enjoyed when shared, and here, there’s always something for everyone,” so goes the menu of 8 Parker Willis, a new space for comfort food in Alabang run by the Serrano family. It is a principle that they live by, and is reflective of the serving sizes of their dishes, which range from original recipes by the matriarch, to ones inspired by childhood memories to those loaded with cheese.Named after the address of their childhood home, the restaurant is big on the Pinoy trait on sharing copious amounts of food with family and friends. Their lineup includes a stand out Salted Egg Fried Chicken with pancakes, which is their twist on the famous Chicken & Waffles combo. The Raclette Lamb Burger—the size of which is so large that people rarely get to finish—is a favorite of their regulars. Undeniably cheese-obsessed, 8 Parker Willis is also happy to add Raclette cheese on anything you order upon request. (Ed: We tried it, and we regret nothing.) And similar to eating at home, everything here is fresh and made from scratch–from the pickles and bread to the cured salmon. For dessert, everybody orders their Matcha Lava Cake or the Banana Milk Chocolate Mousse. They’ve also partnered with a BF Homes favorite, Magnum Opus, whose quality beans make for a good cup of coffee.As longtime residents of Alabang, the Serranos make sure that 8 Parker Willis reflects “the south vibe,” a relaxed atmosphere that pervades in their neck of the woods. It’s a cozy place where you can chill to jazz music throughout the day, whether during a lazy morning or a night sharing a bottle with your friends.Produced by Alyssa Castillo
