Café 5845 Now Open For Business.
But for a country to set a first in the world is something else.
5845 is the number that shook the culinary world last December 14, 2009. It was when the Magsaysay Center for Hospitality and Culinary Arts (MIHCA) and Kraft Eden Cheese successfully created 5,845 unique cheese-infused dishes in one day.
With this record-breaking milestone, Filipino ingenuity was celebrated at its prime.
But the desire of the two renowned institutions to commemorate Filipino culinary creativity does not stop there,
That is why Café 5845 opened for business.
“It is the world’s first cheese café that will serve the most number of cheese dishes at 5, 845,” Chef Giovasco C. Barlao, VP and Head for Operations--MIHCA proudly says. Mounting and marking yet another first in the culinary world is more than just bringing prestige to the country. “We wanted to share to our fellow Filipinos the joy of tasting 5,845 unique cheese-based dishes that we prepared for the World Record event,” Chef Barlao shares. “Which means we get to share our great passion and love for food with them,” s/he added.
With pasta such as Penne Amatriciana with Shrimp & Mushroom, BBQ Pork w/ Cheesy Bechamel Sauce as one of the main courses, Vegetarian pizzas to satisfy vegetarian guests and of course, sandwiches such as Chicken and Cheese Panina lined up in the menu, guests are sure to indulge in a unique dining experience.
Moreover, the café’s architectural design is reminiscent of a quiet and classy European café–complete with an impeccable view of the Manila Bay by its side. “We also considered design and location because they are vital in giving the whole venue a full 360,”
Being the first of its kind in the world, Café 5845 stands as yet another testament of the world-class culinary talent and passion Filipinos greatly exhibit.
