Banquet (20+ Guests)
chinese, filipino, californian
Being of Tsinoy (Filipino Chinese) decent, We are celebrating the Chinese New Year with dishes inspired by our upbringing. The word "kamayan" derives from the word "kamay," meaning “hand.” It is a celebration with the whole family — or even the whole village — getting together to share a meal using their hands. It is a communal meal where a spread of rice and different "ulam" are presented on banana leaves. The different main dishes showcase the freshest of the region where the meal is prepared. PINOY HERITAGE believes there’s no better way to build community than to eat together, with no reservations!
