The best Filipino food can be found in eateries known as "carinderias", which reside in open-air markets in the Philippines. Junior brings the flavours of homestyle Filipino food with its authentic menu. Established in 2014, this venture came about thanks to the collaboration of four talented Filipino-Canadians: Award winning international DJ & Co-founder/owner of club Peopl, Jojoflores and his brother DJ Toddy Flores, along with Dr. Julian Somera & David Pendon. These four entrepreneurs wanted to bring the authentic flavours of the Philippines to Montreal's new restaurant area on Notre Dame street, in an easy-going and friendly setting. Artist Gene Pendon painted the tables and panels which frame and decorate the room. The restaurant opened under the name Junior as a nod to the ubiquitous boy's name used throughout the Philippines, as everyone back home knows a Junior!
