Progress, not perfection.

Filipino restaurant gets New Yorkers to eat ‘kamayan’-style

A restaurant in Manhattan is a living showcase of one of the ties that bind the Philippines and America: food. Thursday night is “kamayan night” at Jeepney, a Filipino gastropub brought by the creators of the hit Filipino restaurant ‘Maharlika.’

With a minimum party of four, foodies experience the real deal in dining Filipino style without plates nor silverware. Guests eat with their bare hands and before they’re seated, a maharlikan crew meticulously builds a foodscape of one’s favorite “ulam” on top of a mountain of rice served on banana leaves.

The food extravaganza comes with lumpiang shanghai as appetizers, huge portions of longganisa, tocino, bicol express, chicharon bulaklak, and dampa fry on white rice.

NYC here I come.
