We know that it’s been quiet on the kapaMEALya front, but that’s only because great things are going to be happening in the near future.
We have lots of catching up to do!
The last event we did back in December was for Noche Buena. It was a great dinner held at Intramuros Restaurant with an attendance of 20 hungry guests. We had everything from pineapple ham, queso de bola, and sopas. Our friend Kenrick Mercado created a fabulous video of the event, which you can check our here:
You really get a sense of what kapaMEALya is trying to do with Filipino food and connecting with folks who enjoy eating it. In the video are Joanne, Chris, Lara, and Keaton.
Another event that did a great job at promoting Filipino food in SF was the 2nd Annual Kulinarya Filipino Cooking Showdown which was held on January 21st at the Carnelian by the Bay Restaurant right by the Ferry Building. Here is Chef Ron Bilaro’s take on the competition’s amateur division shown on TFC’s Adobo Nation:
Chef Ron and I judged the competition along with three other food advocates. I didn’t get much facetime in this video, but you do get a good at my right side stuffing my face with the delicious dishes that were presented to us! I was so happy to have represented kapaMEALya at the event.
Our next event is this coming Saturday on February 25th at the old Mercury Lounge space. The restaurant is no longer running, Chef Dom was so kind to lend us the space for a little potluck. It is a great opportunity to meet with the community and enjoy food together.
Please RSVP ASAP so we know who is coming with what and who:
