A conversation with TMG co-founder Abba Napa, who stands by saying people matter most in the world of restaurants
TMG co-founder Abba Napa was included in Tatler’s Gen. T list and had this to say of her profession, “Creating a restaurant from your imagination and bringing it to life is an amazing thing to do because it is extremely challenging what with all the moving parts.”
Here are some tips from our very own co-founder, Abba Napa, and our friends, Mary Grace Dimacali of Mary Grace Cafe, Jo Manalastas of Spot.ph, on how to keep your customers loyal to your restaurants.
An apostle for gastronomic innovation, The Moment Group is in constant search for food ideas worth one’s salt. Their latest venture is a peek into their own private playground: the Mess Hall.
Located at the ground floor of Moplex—TMG’s headquarters and central kitchens—Mess Hall is an addition to the rapidly expanding food movement along Pasong Tamo Extension. The place acts as a cafeteria in adulthood, from the self service counters to the long communal tables. A perennial pop-up of their ingenuity, Mess Hall will be serving up and dishing out meals from The Moment Group’s personal concepts—beginning with Manam. Featured in Mess Hall’s Manam spin-off are 19 of the restaurant’s choice diner favorites, from the Sinigang of Short Rib and Watermelon, to Oxtail Kare-kare, to the Lechon Batchoy.
Like any of TMG’s other homegrown brands, this spectacular first setup is only the beginning for what the Mess Hall has in store for curious diners
