Event Details

Join us for a unique dining experience celebrating modern Filipino cuisine! Meet new people, eat delicious food and drinks, shop from women-owned vendors and sing your favorite song for us on the karaoke mic!

What's kamayan? The term "Kamayan" itself translates to "eating with hands" in Tagalog. It is the elaborate, large format Filipino meal served on banana leaves and featured on Vice, ABC, Bon Appetit and Food & Wine. As the trend of Filipino cuisine continues to rise in the U.S., there is no better intro into the culture than a Kamayan dinner, a traditional Filipino communal feast where participants enjoy traditional and modern dishes including fresh fruit, grilled vegetables, meats and seafood served on rice over a bed of banana leaves. Embracing the rich cultural tradition, guests are encouraged to enjoy the meal entirely by hand, using their fingers instead of utensils.

Event Producer & Creator of Goddess Magick, Marian Bacol, along with Jeepney's Chef Nicole Ponseca (James Beard Finalist) and special guest chefs Leicel Ros and Nancy Dominguez of Sili, team up to collaborate on a special Spring seasonal menu.

Co-hosted by the Miami chapter of ACE NextGen, a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating lifelong relationships for wealth, learning, network and community for Asian-American entrepreneurs in the growth stage.
