Event Overview

Did you know? Food industry outlets from Eater to Food Network have named Filipino cuisine the leading food trend of 2017! More importantly, October is also Filipino American History Month and to celebrate, join us for a unique, all-inclusive Filipino experience of a food, music and fun! Kamayan is a Filipino style of eating where a menu is laid out across a table of banana leaves and guests eat with their "kamay" (hand). 

Enjoy a communal dining experience as we lay down a bed of rice across the table lined with fresh banana leave and build up a sweet and savory Kamayan feast. Chef Joelen of What's Cookin, Chicago?! has designed a menu that incorporates a combination of both authentic and modernized Filipino dishes to highlight our culture's past, present and future. Regardless if you are familiar with Filipino cuisine and culture, this is a unique, hands on way to get learn something new.
