Joel’s Place is redefining the grocery experience. Unlike the conventional routine of simply coming in, selecting groceries, then  proceeding to checkout–Joel’s Place combines the essence of a modern grocery, specialty store, and a restaurant  into one place. A ‘grocerant’ is what they call this new lifestyle food concept. Envisioned by founders Donnie and Cristopher Tantoco, they wanted to make everyday luxuries accessible in a Filipino setting. In Joel’s Place, you can enjoy the convenience of shopping for fresh produce and pantry staples while having the option to dine within the same space.
