Marison’s is a casual dining, modern Filipino restaurant in Antipolo that has been around since December 2013. It is owned by Atty. Mary Assumption Villareal, whose family nickname is Marison. The Idea for the restaurant came about during Marison’s youthful years. She wanted to have her own restaurant, but fate and circumstances led her to a different career path. Upon her retirement in 2013, she thought of doing something different from being a tax lawyer for the last 30 years and revisited her dream of having her own restaurant.
The main idea of the place is to elevate Filipino cuisine and offer a dining experience at par with offerings from Manila. At that time, the only family restaurants in Antipolo were Max’s, Pizza Hut, and Shakey’s’ and Antipoloenos would have to travel to Manila just to dine out. Marison’s is primarily known for their flagship product, the Crispy Tripe Kare-Kare; the Sinaing na Tuna, inspired by Batangas’ Sinaing na tulingan; and their melt-in-your-mouth Crispy Pata.
