Filipino Kamayan Feast Eaten with Your Hands
No Plates. No Utensils. Just Your Hands.
"Kamay" is the Filipino word for hands. "Kamayan" is the traditional Filipino way of eating with your hands. Now you can have the opportunity to experience modern Filipino American cuisine with a very traditional and communal Filipino way of dining: Kamayan, "with your hands." Your communal table will be completely covered in banana leaves, then a bed of rice will be laid out in front of you. Then from there, your meal will be sequentially "plated" around that bed of rice. Once complete, you and your group will have an entire meal laid out in front of you to eat kamayan-style.
Enjoy this unique and cultural dining experience for your birthday, anniversary, reunion, special occasion or just...because.
