Owners Kim and Marou Gloria were both former bankers who decided to take the risk of opening their own restaurant out of their love for food and cooking. Being both Marikeños themselves, they addressed the local’s need for good comfort food and casual dining restaurants by opening their first Miguel & Maria branch in Lilac Street. Their vision is to bring the same experience that they usually have when dining at casual dining restaurants to Marikina at a fairly good price.
