Food Trip: Jonas Pares, Mayon St, Quezon City

IMG_8579
I was introduced to Jonas and its famous “pares” in 1999 during our church wedding preparation. That was the first time I ate “pares” and since then, we always eat at Jonas every time there is an opportunity.

Even Daniz grew up eating “pares”…she like it very much. Daday already made his own pares recipe which is almost the same with Jonas, and in time I will post it here.
"PARES is a pairing of rice and beef coined by the owner to speed up the service for the value meal of fried rice, beef stew and soup, and the name caught and since then JONAS has been called the 'original pares' place."

Jonjie's memories of Jonas was way back in the early 1980's when it can only accommodate a few customers at a time...and the rest had to stand in wait for whoever will finish first.
