MANILA -- Did you know that Ejay Falcon has ventured into the restaurant business?

The actor has been busy handling Okane Charcoal Grill House with his girlfriend, Jana Roxas, as he waits for his next showbiz project amid the quarantine.

The Korean restaurant, located at Banawe in Quezon City, reopened for dine-in and takeout last June.

In an Instagram post over the weekend, Falcon assured the public that their restaurant "is thoroughly sanitized, with each table having plastic partitions."

"We also observe proper social distancing to make sure you have a worry-free dining experience," he added.

In an interview with the entertainment website Push, Falcon said Okane serves fusion Korean food.

"Matagal ko na pong gustong mag-business at nagkataon si Jana gusto niya din talaga. Then may kaibigan po kami na masasabi ko na maayos na mga tao sa buhay namin at napagkasunduan naming magtayo ng restaurant. Nag-meeting kami then finally, nagawa po namin ito," he said. 

"Ramdam namin na ang dami talagang gusto ang Korean food, and talagang masarap ang Korean food. Kahit noong gumawa ako sa Korea ng guesting para sa isang K-drama, talagang masarap din talaga 'yung food nila," he added. 

Meanwhile, Falcon was also asked by Push if he is planning to switch networks following the non-renewal of ABS-CBN's franchise.

He stressed that he will not leave the Kapamilya network during this trying time.

"Sa totoo lang, sa ngayon hindi ko pa iniisip o ine-entertain ang kaisipan na 'yan. Maraming bagay ang walang kasiguraduhan sa ngayon. Marami ang pwedeng mangyari. Pero kailangan ako ng mga Kapamilya ko ngayon," he said.

"Kailangan naming magtulungan at palakasin ang loob ng isa't isa. Hindi ko sila maaaring iwan sa laban. I'm taking it one day at a time," he ended.
