Eat List Star Finalist: Neilkhan Bautista

Top 10 Finalist



Neilkhan Bautista is a 25-year old restaurateur from the Philippines, who discovered his love for cooking at a young age. Even as a teenager, he preferred spending hours in the kitchen learning cooking techniques and recipes from his mother, while his friends were more interested in the latest video games. Neilkhan’s cooking style is a blend of the old and new, with a focus on traditional Filipino and modern French elements. His newly launched burger joint has received rave reviews from diners. But to him, the ultimate compliment when he cooks is when his mum goes “Serap!” – which means ‘delicious’ in Tagalog.
