Check out the BAON Nights menu!
As the chatter grows louder, people of various colors, nationalities, and generations, sit together in a room anxiously waiting for the first course. The evening continues as the servers enter the room, plates in hand, with the first Filipino course of the night. The featured chef of night welcomes the crowd, and introduces each dish accordingly. After the delicious dinner, consisting of different interpretations of known and famous Filipino dishes, the crowd mingles, and enjoys the rest of the evening. This is the experience of Manila Nights.
Manila Nights, created by the owners of Baon Bistro, is a monthly pop up restaurant dinner series. The main goal of the dinner is to showcase the creative minds of talented Filipino chefs, cooks, culinary students, and restaurant owners. With every night having a different guest chef, each cuisine experience is also different, and you are invited to attend multiple dinners. Filipino food originates from multiple cultures, such as Malay, Spanish, Chinese, and American influences, and each chef features their own individual versions of Filipino cuisine, based on their personal culinary backgrounds, experiences, and influences.
Beginning on Sunday July 5th, 2015, Manila Nights is pleased to have the first chef, Allan Pineda, formerly of Kimchi Café, and future chef of Baon Bistro. Some of Allan’s dishes for the dinner include a dimsum sampler with pork adobo siomai, sinigang soup dumpling, calamari with buffalo adobong puisit sauce, and his take on kare kare and ginitaan. The second pop up restaurant seating on July 26th, 2015 features Yana Gilbuena of the SALO series. Yana, who is based in New York, has been travelling the US and the Philippines doing pop up dinners, and is currently touring Canada. For seats and more information on the upcoming events, search Facebook “BAON presents Manila Nights” or contact Allan at 204-996-1572 or Amanda Pineda at 204-955-6691.
