Lipa City – An emerging term “glocal” has been getting a lot of attention these days. A word fusion of global and local, it can be understood as a local product with an international appeal.
Local entrepreneurs such as the owners of Man Pomade, JingZai Takoyaki, Sushi Teriyaki and Evolution Coffee Roasters thought of ways on how going glocal can be a very good business move.
Opened last October 1, 2016 at the Annex Building of SM City Lipa, Man Pomade have been getting a great following in its product lines of men’s grooming essentials. Their main product of course is the pomade which are differentiated by its hold, texture, scent and gloss. Formulated and packaged differently from the usual pomade that we used to know from our lolo, Man Pomade is a perfect part of any man’s grooming essentials.
Jin Zai Takoyaki
Located at the ground floor of the main building of SM City Lipa, Jin Zai offers a popular Japanese dish – takoyaki, which is s a ball-shaped Japanese snack made of a wheat flour-based batter and cooked in a special half sphere-mould pan. It is typically filled with minced or diced octopus (tako), tempura scraps (tenkasu), pickled ginger, and green onion. Jin Zai offers a variety of flavors and sauces to fuse with Filipino taste.
Evolution Coffee Roasters
A quaint coffee shop located in the ground floor near The SM Store and SM Supermarket of SM City Lipa, Evolution Coffee Roasters offers coffee drinks and pastries which was personally developed by its owner. The coffee shop also sells single-origin roasted coffee beans from Columbia, Mexico and Asia.
As its name suggests, this store offers sushi and teriyaki. Sushi is the Japanese preparation and serving of cooked rice, combined with varied ingredients, chiefly seafood, vegetables, meat, and occasionally tropical fruits. Styles of sushi and its presentation vary widely, depending on the taste of its maker and of course of the one who eats it. Made to complement the Filipino taste, Sushi Teriyaki is a must try food place located at The Foodcourt area of SM City Lipa.
