A Date with Dad: Celebrate Father's Day at Myron's New Home in Ascott Residences Makati

Everyone's favorite since 2008 now has a new home...


For Ramon and Monica Eugenio, it's a culinary journey that began at the long-running Salcedo Market more than twelve years ago with their ready-to-eat gourmet items like US Certified Angus Roast Beef, Roast Australian Leg of Lamb, and a selection of pastas, signature dishes that formed the core for the menu of Myron's when it opened back in 2008 at Greenbelt 5. Since then, Myron's has been a favorite among local diners, its reputation built by its signature steaks.  Now, Myron's is the lead dining concept in an expanding group that includes Miguelito's in SM Mega Mall's Fashion Hall, Franco's in Rockwell, and Flying Pan at Citadines Salcedo (for more on The Flying Pan and Franco's, see my previous posts, The Flying Pan Has Landed: Now Serving Comfort Food Daily at the Heart of Salcedo and Franco's: Reconnecting with Comfort Food). At the very core of each dining concept of Myron's Group is the single-minded culinary philosophy and vision, to make a difference in the dining experience of every guest by committing the highest quality and greatest value for every client, every team member, and every shareholder. And this is taken to heart at Myron's newest location at Ascott Residences in Makati. With Father's Day coming up soon, there's nothing quite like the classic dishes of Myron's to celebrate another family milestone...
