The South American Cuisine is now in Cebu: Santiago Restaurant

A Unique Taste of South American Cuisine!
With his approach to achieve success by being unique in the field of food business, Days Hotel owner Chef James Concepcion has built restaurants that would cater the the picky taste of the Filipino. One of these is the Ziggurat Food Temple in Makati popularizing authentic Indian, Mediterranean, African, and Middle Eastern cuisines. And now in Cebu the "Santiago Restaurant", claimed to be the First and the only South American Restaurant in Cebu. In this way, he is making his food businesses to stand out and be easily noticed in the market.

Santiago Restaurant offers the crossroad cuisine of South American Countries such as Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, Bolivia and Guyana. The good thing about South American Cuisines is that it shares the same ingredients with the Filipino Foods, from fresh seafoods, pork, potatoes, corn, okra, tropical fruits, spices and the rice.

Their prime recipes are Civeche and Vatapa. They also rice recipes like Arroz Carne de Argentina (similar to China's Chao Fan). Desserts like Tres Leches and Coco Flan.

The restaurant's name came from varied reasons:
a.) The owner is Chef James, in which St. James in Chile is Santiago.
b.) Santiago City is the Capital of Chile
c.) Santiago is found mostly in South American Countries
d.) In Britain, James is Santiago

Enjoy a day eating while listening the beat of Latin American Music. It feels like you're having a Breakfast in Chile, Lunch in Brazil, and a Dinner in Argentina.

Recommendation: Target market is not yet known. I would suggest that they conduct a market study to determine if how many percent are Cebuanos, South American Tourists and other prospective customers. In this way, they could consistently deliver quality service with the biggest market share and improve selling efforts on the least.
