Ozamiz resto gets two thumbs up from Chef Bruce Lim
One of Ozamiz’ popular restaurants, Johann’s Cuisine, was lauded by renowed Chef Bruce Lim, citing its kinilaw na laya’s distinct flavor profile.
“I like it (Kinilaw na Laya, a fish that is found only in Ozamiz) because it’s different. It has a flavor profile. The fish itself is fatty but it doesn’t taste malansa (fishy). Sometimes fatty fish can be quite malansa [but this] is not and I think it is because of the Tabon-tabon (a tropical fruit). It really has this nice refreshing taste because I think it’s [because of] the Suha. It’s really good. I can’t wait to see this [in the] mainstream,” said Chef Lim’s when he was asked to comment about Kinilaw na Laya served by Johann’s Cuisine during the Dine Philippines 2016 that was held in Davao City on October 4 at the SM Lanang, Sun Star reported.
Johann’s Cuisine is a very popular restaurant, situated along Bañadero Highway in Ozamiz City, and is known for its Lechon Baka.
Chef Johann Dagandara, owner of Johann’s Cuisine, was thankful for the appreciation of his dishes.
“The feedbacks are very good. I am very glad at ito ay nagustuhan nila… sulit ang biyahe namin dito sa Davao [from Ozamiz City],” Chef Johann said in the report.
