Join this exciting food crawl to get an insider's perspective on Filipino cuisine!
Trek the streets of East Village to discover Filipino favorites and hidden gems with a local. We'll eat through a curated tasting menu at each restaurant and chat with store-owners and staff who bring these amazing dishes to life.
Along the way, we will talk about the influences that shaped Filipino cuisine, how these dishes fit in Filipino daily life, and the story of Filipino migration to the US. All inclusive of food, but beverages are extra.

Hi, I'm Raf! I was born and raised in the Philippines and I moved to New York five years ago. As a passionate foodie, I have searched for New York's best Filipino restaurants and I want to share them with you. I enjoy telling stories about Filipino culture using a culinary experience to fellow foodies. I have written about Filipino food and hosted private Filipino dinners where I tell my guests about what makes our cuisine so amazing. Another passion of mine is cooking. Check out @houseband_material on Instagram. Looking forward to meeting you!
