“Our mission is handcrafting restaurants & establishments that are dedicated to creating a good time for everyone, every single time.”
With a mission to “Handcraft restaurants & establishments that are dedicated to creating a good time for everyone, every single time,” the Moment Group is a Philippine-based company behind a collective of some of Manila’s leading restaurant concepts. Having grown up around good food and restaurants their whole lives, the Moment Group composed of restaurateurs Abba Napa, Eliza Antonino and Jon Syjuco, have developed a keen understanding of the constantly evolving Philippine market. That’s precisely why they have successfully owned and operated some of the country’s tastiest and most popular homegrown concepts such as 8Cuts Burger Blends, Manam Comfort Filipino, ‘Cue Modern Barbecue, Bistro M and Bank Bar. The Moment Group has also partnered with rising star chef Bruce Ricketts for the chef’s table Mecha Uma, and Ooma. The international partnerships have been equally strong with Phat Pho Manila from esteemed Cebu Chef-Restaurateur Jason Hyatt, the American-Italian Linguini Fini and the globally well-loved and 5-time Michelin-star awarded international brand, Din Tai Fung.
Backed with sound business sense and a keen understanding of the constantly evolving Philippine consumer market, the Moment Group has been able to create and operate brands that draw “lines” in both the F&B and retail scenes. Since it’s inception in 2012, and with over 20 years of combined restaurant creation and ownership, the Moment Group has been able to establish a vast network across the major cities in the Philippines and the Asian region, gaining continuous access to the best commercial real estate in the country, extensive cross-industry credibility, strong government and media affiliations as well as solid financial backing and resources.
