Kayu Kitchen+BarThe second half of 2016 is an exciting time for 32 Sanson by Rockwell as the community comes to life with the opening of two homegrown restaurants from the Alvarez-Sy family, a Cebuano family passionate about sharing their love for food.
From the Cebuano word kalayo, which translates to fire or passion, Kayu gives Cebu a dining experience that satisfies the five senses, staying true to the passion that is common in Cebuanos. Kayu pays tribute to the richness of Cebuano culture while incorporating elements from Californian cuisine, creating unique and succulent flavors that burst on the palate.
A new addition to the culinary landscape, Kayu is also owned and managed by Francis and Marisse Sy, and their son, chef Izzy Sy, who is responsible for the restaurant’s savory offerings. Izzy pursued his great passion for food in the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, California. He spent two years at Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s restaurant, Morimoto, where his inclination for reinventing food and flavors was ignited.
Kayu Kitchen+Bar is a perfect fit for 32 Sanson, where the love for family and food is celebrated, bringing to life the distinct Rockwell lifestyle.
Kayu Kitchen+Bar is located at 32 Sanson by Rockwell, 32 Sanson Road, Lahug, Cebu City. For inquiries and reservations, call 516-5842.
