Wency Cornejo opened his small resto called Carmela’s at the JJ’s Commune, Loyola Street, Bo. Obrero, Davao City.
JJ’s Commune is the new complex near Plaza Del Carmen and Casa Panolee.
As Wency would say just look for the red door straight from the entrance of the new complex and you’ll easily find Carmela’s.
Do you see that red door straight ahead? That’s the one!
They have ran out of Carmela’s Enzayms when we got there so we just decided to have a quick dinner. I just wanted to try their fried chicken wings crusted with Chippy… yes Jack ‘N Jill Chippy hence the name.
Jack ‘N Jill Chicken with Mac N Chiz Curls at Carmela’s by Wency Cornejo…
It is served with macaroni topped with roughly crushed Jack ‘N Jill Chiz Curls. The chicken skin crusted with Chippy and the mac n Chiz were really good and delicious. However, the chicken inside was still a little raw.
My guess was right that Carmela’s is named after his mom Carmela “Mel” Tiangco.
Carmela’s open at 11AM till 9PM on Tuesday to Sunday. They are closed usually on Monday for their rest day.
Their Enzayms or ensaymadas are really good at P130 for a box of 6. They do have a buy 1, take 1 offer around 7PM, if I am not mistaken.
Update: They are adding new dishes in their menu which we would love to try next time we get to come back in this new resto in the city. Hopefully we could also get to try their cakes and catch their enzayms still available.
Carmela’s is again at the new complex called JJ’s Commune where you can also find other newly opened establishments like The Boardroom, Marbled Restaurant and Bar, Cafe Blooming Days Roastery and Flower Cake, Little Madam Spa, and Stre3ts Urban Lifestyle Pub.
