Aside from showbiz, Matsunaga also talked about his love for Filipino food during the opening of Stan’s Tinolahan + Grill.

When asked by Cebu Daily News if he cooks, he said, “Yes, I do! Adobo. Kahit pansit kaya ko rin ‘eh. Sinigang … monggo is one of my favorites!”

Matsunaga is also focused on his restaurants and food business with non-showbiz partners: Naxional (a South-American diner),  Sobremesa (a fusion of Filipino and South American cuisine) and The Healthy House (a healthy food delivery).

With his busy schedule, does Matsunaga still have time for love? “Pray na lang tayo na darating siya para mas mabilis!” he said.

Both figured in a controversial breakup in February 2017.
