'The Food Project: La Union' is Absolute Food and Feed Goals

La Union has been sweeping people off their feet for the past couple of years. What’s not to love about 'Elyu'? You can listen to the waves or ride them, the sunset is breathtaking, everyone here seems to be so chill, life here is slow and laidback, yet it's also fun and entertaining. Plus, you’ve probably already heard of the various must-try food and drinks when in Elyu.

The Food Project: La Union is the newest addition to Elyu’s superb food scene. It opened last March and it’s already gaining popularity from both locals and tourists. Owned and manage by Khenrik Tan, a young entrepreneur who’s a steady foodie and has a keen eye for great interior designs, it’s no wonder why The Food Project has plenty of IG-worthy corners and notable food choices. Chefs from Singapore and a high end hotel in the north were hired by Khenrik to screen all would-be tenants during the early stage of The Food Project.

On top of that, they also have a posh nail lounge where you may rest and relax in between eating and drinking to your heart’s content!
