5 Loaves and 2 Fish
The name of the restaurant, 5 loaves and 2 fish was taken from a verse in the bible. This reflects the couples, Dina and Anthony Miro’s deep faith as Christians. Ms. Dinah Grace M. Miro, one of the owners has been cooking for her family ever since. The primary product of the restaurant is the Lavosh, which was first introduced to the public in Mercato Central. This homemade recipe of Dinah was able to land as one of the top choices in the Ultimate Taste Test in Mercato Central.
When she decided to open a cafe, she had two business names in mind when they decided to register, but both were taken already. She prayed hard for inspiration and guidance. And decided on a name that is bible-inspired, and at the same time, has a connection with “unleavened bread”. Lavosh is a healthier alternative to chips and junk food and can be consumed as a snack. It comes in a variety of colors. A specific ingredient gives the lavosh its distinct color. (pink lavash has beetroot, the orange one has carrots and the green one has spinach) The platter of lavosh comes with an array of interesting dips such as Pesto Brulee, Garlic Oil with Dulong, Chicken Liver Pate and Tomato Coriander Salsa.
