The Luneta Ice Cream and Guapito Beer, a product by Dennis Rogacion and Rhea Topacio, a Filipino couple who lives in Netherland, is becoming more popular in the said country, giving Pinoys in Europe a sweet taste of home.

Summer in the Philippines motivated the couple to create a brand of artisan ice cream, which named after the Luneta, also known as Rizal Park, a historical park recognized for being a great place to spend time with family, especially during the holidays.

“We want to offer everyone, Filipinos and Europeans alike, the kind of food that makes someone feel good. Our products give you that cozy feeling, whether you are having a bad day or enjoying a good time. For our Filipino customers, it gives them a sense of being home, a reminder of how home tastes like,” Rogacion stated on their website.

To make Luneta Ice Cream available to the general public, the Filipino couple makes sure it is seen at every culinary festival in the Netherlands.

“Our ice creams are made with no additional artificial emulsifiers or stabilizers. Most flavors are hard to find and some are even unique to the European palate. You could say that this is our way of introducing the goodness of Filipino food to the Europeans albeit in a very sweet way,” Topacio shared on their website.

Luneta Ice Cream is already making a name for itself in the competitive ice cream market, having won two National Prizes at the De Nederlandse HORECA (Hotels, Restaurants, and Café) Prijzen – the 2020 Food Truck of the Year Award (Ice Cream category) and the Gold Award for excellence in product and service.

The Pinoy ice cream may be bought in the Netherlands’ largest Asian store.

In addition, the pair created Guapito Premium Beer, the first Filipino beer brand to be manufactured in the Netherlands. It’s different from the normal Filipino brands in the market, and this blond beer gives the Filipino tongue a unique flavor.
