About Kulinarya

KULINARYA GLOBAL is a duly formed family corporation that has varied interests in restaurants and other foodservice operations. Since its incorporation in 1999, KULINARYA GLOBAL has consistently adhered to its philosophy of providing food and service that meet established quality standards. The tagline of the company is simply: “Serving good food everyday…”

KULINARYA KITCHEN is the pioneer restaurant under KULINARYA GLOBAL’s menu of quality restaurants. It first opened to delight diners in Katipunan, Quezon City in September of 1999. Diners gravitated toward KULINARYA KITCHEN’s unpretentious menu selection and new world charm.

Two years later, it relocated at Power Plant Mall Rockwell Center, the address of fashionable Manila. Loyal patrons from the Quezon City branch followed KULINARYA to its new home; growing up with the menu they always found comfort in.

In February 2008, KXP (Kulinarya Experience) opened at Robinsons Place Manila – Midtown Wing. The new restaurant concept aspires to let more people experience the same Kulinarya quality at more affordable prices. The menu is fresh, exciting, affordable, and served fast in a relaxing atmosphere. With the success of the first KXP, it opened its second branch at Rockwell Business Center Ortigas in 2013 and at The Commercenter Alabang the following year.

Corporate, diplomatic and socialite clients revere KULINARYA’s contemporary take on catering services. Events are made more special with modern buffet and bar set-ups, unique serving glass sculptures, professionalized service and personalized menus. Kulinarya Global has also managed the food and beverage operations in several prestigious membership clubs in the country in the last 5 years and has since developed a reputation for dependability and flexibility to meet the club members’ satisfaction.

Weaving a conductor’s wand to the myriad tastes and flavors of KULINARYA GLOBAL’s restaurant and foodservice ventures is Carlo Mesina, President and Chief Executive Officer.

Chef Patricia Mesina named as “New Chef to Watch” by Gene Gonzalez (The Best of 1999, Manila Bulletin) and regarded as one of Manila’s Five Young Culinary Innovators (Sunday Inquirer, 2000), is the Corporate Chef. She graduated with honors from the Center fo Asian Culinary Studies under Chef Gene Gonzalez and Pastry Chef Jill Sandique. Chef Pat, according to Sandy Daza (Passion for Cooking, Philippine Daily Inquirer) could easily give many foreign educated chefs a good run for their money.

The fusion of all the talents in KULINARYA GLOBAL enables it to consistently stay steadfast in their mission – putting good taste in everything we do.
