Recommended by Tampa Local Alexis Suarez Pinoy St. Pete is born of the vision of Raquel “Jingle” Baluyut. Although originally from the Philippines, Jingle has spent a lot of time in Miami but believes that home is truly where her family is- so she moved to the Tampa Bay area! Good vibes and good energy are more than just phrases to Jingle- they are a lifestyle. Her desire to create a welcoming environment is evident by the vibrant flavors found within her dishes. Jingle is from the Tarlac Region of the Philippines. Her culture is interwoven within each dish. You will taste ingredients and flavor profiles that are unique to that particular region such as adobo, vinegar, and ube. To Jingle, family and community are everything. Your visit to Pinoy St. Pete will leave you feeling like you are a part of our extended family- greeted with a smile and leaving with a belly full of decadent dishes. We can’t wait to see you again!
