Lola Maria’s Story
A place where guests can talk business yet find pleasure in great food and good company, the restaurant at The Legend Villas Manila would’ve made Lola Maria proud.
Doña Maria Florentine Villanueva Rosario, the inspiration behind Lola Maria Restaurant, was the maternal grandmother of Legend Hotels International Corporation chairman Wyden R. King. She was born on September 11, 1901 in Vigan to then Governor Jose Florendo Villanueva and his wife, Maria Florentine.
Truly a woman well beyond her years, Lola Maria managed her father’s social and political affairs at an early age. Later on, she started building a family with Judge Constantino Angco Rosario. She then entered business as Vigan’s first dealer of Socony gas station and later became known as one of the biggest jewelers in northern Philippines, reaching even far-off markets like Mindanao and Hawaii. She did all these while keeping family ties strong through the years.
All Lola Maria learned about family and business management, she passed onto her children and grandchildren, instilling in them the family motto “Purity, sincerity, and honesty in thoughts, words, and actions” in every summer vacation and family reunion.
For a fine host that Lola Maria is, with every get together comes a feast. In between each bite of classic Filipino food prepared with love in their home in Vigan, she filled the hearts and minds of the little ones with memories to treasure forever.
And now with Lola Maria Restaurant at The Legend Villas Manila, we hope to inspire the same degree of longing for home and family with every meal. Here, a dish is not just dish; it can be a pot of sinigang your mom served on rainy days, a plate of binagoongan your dad loved to bits, or that nutty kare-kare you cooked on their anniversary — a heartwarming surge of memories that renders balance to the business and corporate scene of Mandaluyong.
