Franco's: Reconnecting with Comfort Food

Familiar and comforting, yet new and inventive. Classic flavors with a playful twist. At Franco's, you can reconnect with your favorite comfort food, and discover new favorites along the way...

Burgers, pizza, and premium steaks, all in one spot, Franco's is the kind of place where you can enjoy classic comfort food all day. In fact, it's the kind of place where you'd like to stay the whole day...

Located at Powerplant Mall, Franco's is the latest concept from Mon and Monique Eugenio, the creative duo behind Myron's. Named after their youngest, Franco's exudes a playful warmth that complements its new line of signature comfort food.

Toy soldiers, a vintage toy train, even a set of Hardy Boys fill the shelves and display cabinets, and almost immediately one can sense a connection. And at Franco's, the food strengthens this connection combining familiar flavors with playful twists.

Tinapa-Cream Cheese Cigars (P 125), crisp spring rolls stuffed with rich cream cheese and smoked fish, served with a vinegar dip. A refreshing and playful twist on the familiar cheese stick, with just the right layer of smoky flavor from the smoked fish.

Onion Soup (P 160), a hearty and comforting broth topped with rich cheese, a perfect starter to any meal at Franco's. Served hot, the real fun begins when you pick up the soft, stringy cheese.

The Barcelona (P 240), a rustic thin crust pizza topped with chorizo, cheese and caramelized onions. The sharp notes of the chorizo are perfectly balanced by the rich and creamy cheese and the subtle sweet flavors of the caramelized onions, all on a perfectly crisp crust.

Sisig Baguette (P 230), a freshly made baguette filled with beef sisig (yes, it's beef), lettuce, and tomatoes, served with fries,and yet another cool and playful reinvention of classic flavors.

Using beef instead of pork adds a richer flavor, making this sandwich unique and different. Leave it to Franco's to surprise you with new flavors...

The Italian Burger (P 320), a premium beef patty seasoned with Italian herbs and spices topped with cheese and tomato on lettuce and a freshly baked bun. Inspired by the classic Italian meatball, the Italian Burger is a refreshing new take, familiar yet new and different. The rich flavors of the premium beef patty combine well with the buttery bun, delivering rich flavors in every bite. The freshly baked bun is soft, and remains intact even as it absorbs the juices of the beef patty. And with the perfectly seasoned patty, you don't need to add any other condiment. Seriously good.

Classic comfort food with a playful twist, in a homey, casual spot. Always a winning combo. Congratulations to Mon and Monique Eugenio for another winning concept, and an awesome dining experience. Find your old favorites, and discover new ones, only at Franco's.

Franco's is located at the Ground Floor of  Power Plant Mall, Estrella Street corner Rockwell Drive, Poblacion, Makati.
