A Matter of Taste and Faith

By: Mary Luz Mejia

Mayette Murillo is living her dream. The tireless entrepreneur and owner of Mayettes Fine Foods on the Danforth believes that her determination, hard work and unwavering faith in God helped her get to where she is today. The seventh child of fourteen siblings, Mayette grew up in a sleepy fishing village where she helped sell her father's daily catch at the local market. Walking through rice paddies with her load of fish, Mayette recalls looking up at the sky and seeing planes glide overhead. She promised herself, one day I'll fly away and discover the world too! I'll be someone some day.

 

 True to her word, Mayette completed a business administration program, eventually working for United Nations offices in Manila. It was during this time that she met the man that would be her husband. When she moved to Canada with her then-husband in 1980, Mayette always cooked for new friends as a way to gather people around her home. They kept encouraging her to open a restaurant; they planted the seed but Mayette wanted a 'sign' that this was the right move. "I prayed to God to give me a sign and that night I dream I was watching a space shuttle launch from Cape Canaveral. There were presidents from all over the world there, Princess Diana was there and so many famous people. We were all clapping during lift off and I took that as my sign to open my restaurant," explains Mayette.From a prophetic dream to endless hours spent honing her craft, Mayette has earned the reputation of one of the best Filipina cooks in Toronto.
Her specialty is Filipino food
