North Park goes beyond the usual Cantonese cuisine – it’s uniquely Chinoy concocted to Pinoy tastes

Ambiance and looks change, but not well-loved family recipes generations have come to love. It’s all-time favorites perfected over time and served in portions and prices that guarantee value and satisfaction that keeps people coming back for more.
 
“Sulit sa busog.” North Park goes beyond the usual Cantonese cuisine; it’s uniquely Chinoy concocted to Pinoy tastes. Better than any contrived theme menu, North Park restaurants dishes have been tested by time and have earned the trust and approval of thousands of regular patrons.
 
“Ever since, it’s always been about comfort food,” explains North Park group proprietor Raphael Soon of his family’s business. “We are a family of foodies and cooks,” he testifies. Their food is nothing less than what they themselves would cook and eat. Today, they still personally train each chef to insure quality and consistency.

This is a homegrown business, not some franchise from other countries.– Rafael Soon

“This is a homegrown business, not some franchise from other countries,” North Park group of restaurants proprietor Raphael Soon attests. Their food, their service and their values are what set them apart from the artifice of themed restaurants and the faddishness of trendy bars. Not only is North Park about a cool and modern ambiance, it’s also old-fashioned and well-loved cuisines.
 
The culinary repertoire that North Park restaurants offers are recipes perfected over generations by a family of food-lovers. The Soon family remembers serving mami and siopao even before the Second World War. “We started Golden Peking in 1974. We brought Peking Duck to the Philippines,” recalls Raffy. The first North Park establishment opened in T. Pinpin Street, Binondo China Town in 1988 as a seafood restaurant.

When we started North Park, we didn’t think it would grow this much.– Rafael Soon

“We started small scale as a noodle house because it was easy to operate,” confesses Raffy. Starting from humble beginnings has allowed North Park restaurants to organically grow and to maintain its honest-to-goodness ambiance, taste and service.
 
“When we started North Park, we didn’t think it would grow this much,” confides Raphael Soon of his family’s business. The North Park group of restaurants today includes Next Door, Tiananmen Bar and Kopi Tiam. These restaurants have common dishes as well as unique menus. Each caters to specific sort of diner, whether they are large families, young urban professionals, trendy bar-hoppers or coffee aficionados.
 
As North Park continues to grow, it continues to foster its homegrown feel and authentic comfort food menu making it the modern Chinoy restaurant we all love.
