Kamayan - A Hand-to-Mouth Filipino Feast
Cooking and eating in the Philippines has traditionally been an informal and communal affair centered around the family kitchen. Unlike many of its Asian counterparts, Filipinos don't eat with chopsticks. This is very much due to its history of Western influence from the Spanish.
The word kamay means "hands" and is where Kamayan originated from. This style of eating is a source of pride whereby the dinner is traditionally laid out on a banana leaf and you eat the entire meal sans utensils.
Join us at Baldwin Village's beloved Filipino eatery, Platito for a traditional Kamayan dinner. Platito means small plates and describes the way dishes are presented. Think Filipino tapas bar. However, for one-night only we are breaking with tradition and chef Karlo Cunanan (formerly of Momofuku) will roll out a whole feast on the table for everyone to enjoy with craft brews from Belgian Moon and Lagunitas!
Tickets are $60 and includes drinks and gratuity.
