This Mediterranean concept redefines fast food with preservative-free, grab-and-go meals
Medley: Modern Mediterranean proves that you don’t need artificial flavoring to make a good meal
Medley: Modern Mediterranean is redefining the phrase “fast food” through grab-and-go meals designed with meat lovers, vegetarians, and vegans in mind.
Like the name implies, Medley is an assortment of Mediterranean-inspired dishes ranging from falafel sandwiches to Levantine chicken rice bowls—but it’s also more than that. “What that means to me is, it’s a variety of all the recipes and all our life experiences, as a family, combined into one place,” says founder David Tweg.
Headed by David Tweg and his father Michael Tweg, Medley was borne from three generations of Tweg family recipes combined with the Israeli father-son duo’s experience running a 24/7 falafel shop in El Nido, Palawan and a kiosk at the Legaspi Sunday Market.
After six to eight months of research and preparation, the Twegs curated a menu of dishes that, while Mediterranean at its core, also took the Filipino palate into account. So while some dishes are authentically Mediterranean (like their beef kofte bowl), others put a Mediterranean twist on familiar Asian favorites (like their seared tuna sashimi salad). Served with only fresh ingredients free of preservatives and artificial flavors, all under 15 minutes, orders can also be customized to your preference.
“I believe food should be enjoyed in its freshest and untreated form, just good food made with love—the way nature intended it,” says David. With ingredients sourced directly from local farmers in Baguio and Tagaytay, sustainability also seems to be on the menu. By the end of the first quarter, David says that they aim to get all of their products directly from local farmers, joining other restaurants in their farm-to-table efforts.
Medley is open 10 AM to 11 PM daily. You can find them on the Ground Floor of the Fully Booked Building, B6, Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City.
