He’s the owner of the restaurant pleasure nice to meet you you this is the king of the Filipino Community here right yes he a little bit so what are we doing in the back so we have a lot I’m I prepared like a lot things so we can

Introduce Filipino cine in a in a good way you is my favorite part of uh visiting restaurants the kitchen man oh wow you already started so yeah so I no I prepared it oh wow wow so we have two ways of Kare just beef and this is like

A a special thing thing it’s crispy PA Kare Kare Kare too but it’s crispy PA so this is so meat with vegetables you have eggplant this one is going to be deep fried o wow deep fried on the side then you well you eat it it’s like you dig

And and and put some sauce and everything like vegetables but this one is the traditional it’s all mixed up then you just eat it this is our barbecue Filipino barbecue we’ll cook it too we we pre it we have the um the Panet which is noodles pet that’s pet

Yeah that’s P oh okay so the whole thing is pet this one this one this making what I see is it’s very vibrant lots of vegetables in your Cuisine it is yeah it’s all mixed up it’s it’s healthy food too they thought it’s all all pork but

We we actually have like a lot of vegetables also so this is cig so we use pork okay from the se but you can order fish or uh chicken or tofu but what is it C cuz I I guess I’ve seen two different versions the traditional cig

Is actually the snout and the ears and liver oh my gosh that’s the wild uhhuh yeah that’s what I offer in Kanto in in in my other restaurant so this is the lpia mhm so the lumpia is a spring roll and it’s a this one’s actually very long

Almost like a cigar very thin and long when I went to Manila I went to the Chinatown there and I had the big big ones you know huge so this one is I think that’s the one that you’re looking for we have something like that which is vegetable

Lpia okay and this one is a fresh vegetable lumpia so it’s big also this is going to be the final one the Leon I’m I’m still preparing it but uh I can show you and we’re not going to do a bule fight today not bule fight yeah

That’s something very special they do in the Philippines a lot of my friends have done a video it’s like a huge thing and then you you throw food so there’s two version of that one is budal fight which is it came from PMA which is a Philippine military in in in the

Philippines that when they say budal fight the first Bud fight is actually a newspaper on the floor and the military they will put all the food there and they will scream bule fight then they have to grab what food they can grab because that’s a but the the traditional

Way for um for something like that is kamayan which is really a Filipino pce whenever you’re in the beach or in with the family you prepare all the food in the table and you eat in the Banana Leaf I’m going to do it one day yeah no you

Can do it here I can do it here I actually grew up in the Philippines so I moved here when I was 14 and then Hulu which is like the most southernmost part of the Philippines where they um you know they have the houses on the stilts

And stuff like that and they they they do like free diving for food and things like and and that’s where the kids learn how to they they learn how to swim before they walk in this in this area yes yes so that’s where um my mom is

From and then she moved to Manila to study for University everybody does right yes and then um so here in I I would say like here in um in Florida there’s a very small community but my dad is definitely one of the pillars of of the community because he’s very much

Involved in like Filipino anything Filipino or involved like Chamber of Commerce um any festivals even we did an U Fest um in Smorgasburg and Winwood so he helped lead that as well so and moving here from um the Philippines is definitely a culture shock for me because obviously America is very

Different um the one thing that I noticed about America versus the Philippines is that Americans are very wasteful and in the Philippines we have this kind of like I guess comaraderie with the environment and just kind of taking care of our own kind of culture um although the life is hard over there

It’s still kind of like I would say everyone kind of is for each other a collective kind of um well let me ask you do you speak uh the main language yes I speak Tagalog tently um and I yeah grew up there and spoke toal all the way and so you were

Born in Manila yes I was born in Manila got it so I know there’s 7600 Islands the second largest island nation in the world after Indonesia which is amazing no I’m excited can’t wait to try the Halo Halo adobo adobo that’s their chicken and pork a language that’s like

A dialect of Spanish in the Philippines yes so there is a dialect called chavacano um in the Philippines and it’s mostly spoken in zamonga area which is the southern most like one of the southernmost part islands in the Philippines and it’s one of the closest

To Spanish so if I I actually saw a video like somewhere that somebody was speaking chabacano to a person who has in Spanish from Spain um and and they actually like understood each other it’s just different diction that they use but it’s the same language almost so the Spanish colonized the Philippines I

Think 300 years 15 16th century until like 1898 I think that’s the independence um and in that time it wasn’t just Spanish the Spanish came from Mexico for my understanding so they have it’s a different type of Spanish that came over it wasn’t just Spanish it

Was like Mexico as well yes there’s also some people from Mexico um that had come through but the first first Spanish people that do that did came here was mellan the Portuguese like um I guess yeah I mean they went to maau they went to Singapore they went all that

Area exactly and then they told everybody the the Spain that um that they found the Philippines and then the people from Spain come started coming over here but actually the Mexican people that had came over um started around like 1700s so um because of there’s still a

Good amount of actually um um connection between the Philippines and Mexico that not a lot of people know about and there’s actually a kind of like a shrine somewhere in um bar Navidad in Mexico on the Pacific side and it’s like their Shrine of Philippines and Mexico um

Connection that’s where they um kind of just I guess where the the ships would go into and from the Philippines so and for my Miami peeps never call a Filipino un chinito they are not Chinese they are Philippines obviously Asian but uh but yeah we heard that a lot of people do

This so yeah there’s a lot of people I mean it’s okay I mean that’s that’s our brothers and sisters I know I know but U we’re definitely more I guess like such like a mix of all cultures and that shows in the food so Chinese influence Indonesian um also like the Spanish

Influence we we we put a lot of like sweet like sugar yes we have flan obviously um and so um the the Indonesian um I guess um influence is really kind of that’s where our roots are really from like um we are we are Muslim first as a country before we were

Catholic so um there’s definitely that type of um history that not a lot of people talk about in the Philippines that’s the Lumia and this is the ton so what’s the difference between ton and Lumia this is banana this is vegetables this is going to be glazed with sugar

Later oh so to ton is a dessert it’s a banana wrapped wrapped in a spring roll wow yeah this one is vegetables amazing yeah vegetable spring roll and so we’re frying this one we’re frying this we’re frying the other authentic uh lpia and we have this another uh fresh lpia so

You have the three Lumia in the Philippines and I think this is the inspiration or that was brought from the Chinese correct yeah yeah some of the best Lumas of my life Fusion it you Fusion it because we have a lot of banana in the Philippines so we and we

Glazed it in the in the and sugar and you also have a lot of manga right mang mango is uh but they call it manga yeah manga is the national food so the Philippines is like a mix of every culture so what does it mean to be a

Filipino I know it’s like the Spanish came you have Amar Indians you have Indonesians were there I mean so for you what is the Filipino well Filipino is really um you can say Filipino is very a humbled person which is we we love to actually entertain people and if you go

To the Philippines everybody is smiling so so that’s uh a difference I guess of a Filipino with with regards to um like ethnicity we are very humbled we are very proud of being a Filipino and um just helping other people also we’re we’re happy doing that like if you go to

The Philippines you lost your wallet or so you can still live and they will still feed you wow yeah so from my understanding the Filipinos are like the Latins of Asia because of the Spanish and the Mexican Connection yes so yeah I think we were the first one that was

Colonized by by Spanish in Asia and actually melan was killed also in in U in the Philippines so wow yeah he was killed there by by Lapu Lau which is our datu in in the southern part they colonized the um the lon and bayas for first the

Last um uh thing that they’re doing is the minda which is a lot of Muslims he was kill there got it yeah that’s the South that’s the south southern portion of the the Philippines which is uh loon H not loon uh mindo I heard they cleaned it up though so I’ll

Go there next time yeah oh yeah it’s good it looks good right good food yeah good food right here we have adobo the national dish of the Philippines you got pork soy sauce bay leaf some other ingredients in there vinegar as well look at this Beauty look at the fat that

Layer it’s perfect love this uh gravy on top just got to keep simmering it and then on the side pork blood stew it actually looks like a the the ink from the squid ink in terms of like the the darkness almost like a purple and you have a chili philippinos aren’t like the

Rest of Southeast Asia they’re not super heavy with the chilies you go to Thailand some of other countries super hot Philippines it’s more I guess it’s a milder spice right but they have spices but way milder so you were born in the Philippines you left when you were 14 is

There a huge uh difference between the generations in terms of Filipino Americans like let’s say your father for instance they grew up over there and had you over there yes so definitely there is a big difference in the generations um I would say the Philippines the first

Generations for example just like me um we’re very connected to Our Roots and very connected to the culture and traditions um I would say if you grew up in America and you were born in America as a Filipino you are there’s this sense of craving as well on the culture and

Looking and finding yourself in the culture because sometimes you’re too American and sometimes you’re too Filipino or things like that in different settings so growing up here I think I have a good amount of both because I have the firsthand experience of the Philippines growing up there we

Didn’t grow up in a very rich family as well we have I have the most authentic experience growing up as well so now here coming through in um growing up in the Philippines for the rest of my ad adolescent life um it’s definitely become um making me proud of where I’m

From more um making me want to become kind of like a taste maker for my friends putting them on to adobo and Leon and all those things so it’s really fun to be around with other cultures as well yeah and I’ll say one of the best things about the Philippines is

Everybody this age group speaks English so if you’re 30 or under everybody speaks English and everybody is connected on the phone it is it really is like one of the most connected countries yes definitely yes I actually when I was grow growing up in the Philippines I went to an international

School so I definitely had you know a good amount of exposure with English language but that’s like a lot of the Filipinos as well even if you didn’t go to International School you will still get a good amount of Education America I’m going to ask you guys should I go to

To paste yourself I’m going to got two pieces let me try this some rice flavors in a little bit yeah one of the things that you’ll notice in Filipino cuisin is that they don’t use their hands or Chopsticks um they use utensils but they use their hands for The Bu FIP for the

Well the typical really is in the house it’s by hands yes if you’re like eating a fish with the rice you know breakfast that’s you eat with the hands but you know usually it’s spoon and fork and we got that from the Americans yeah um and um we don’t use knife like that

Actually you don’t use fork and knife just spoon andk Spoon and Fork Spoon and Fork yeah I’ll show you how how it works so we do that and we use the the corner of the spoon to actually cut no need for uh knife that’s it oh mine’s so

Tender get some rice nice little bite oh I love with the peppercorn mhm yeah nice glazy sauce on top that mhm like claz so that’s soy vinegar and ber mhm oh I love the national dish there’s a special vinegar that you also use on that one okay so it’s a

Keen to try something with blood so so if you like blood sausage that’s better you know it’s funny cuz it does have that that element of the Marcia yeah yeah but no rice in it so you add the rice yeah yeah yeah but it tastes better tastes delicious yes it it

Reminds me of the the squid ink even the texture does we have that too you do have that the squid Inc adobo adobo oh wow yeah next time we also have the the jumbo squid Calamar oh my gosh yeah yeah I mean there’s a huge Seafood aspect

That we haven’t even D into yet my restaurant has the the biggest selection in in South Florida for Filipino dish W yes yeah I’m the only crazy one that offers you’re the only crazy one no that’s great I mean we do need this you know that’s one thing that when we were

Looking at the um you know the demographics in terms of how many Filipinos are not that many more passing through because of the cruise ships but in this area in particular there’s a lot yes I have an opportunity actually of getting uh the businesses on the to take

Care of the CR people but I chose to actually introduce Filipino food in in in in South Florida in land so I can cater for to introduce it better for the non-filipino also so good small little it’s like bits of everything in here then you grab the Thai Chili do

Little too hot woo that is hot might need water that’s hot it’s hot dude this little gu the tii chili milk he needs milk I know really any milk but it’s okay we’ll have the halahal later that’ll fix me I love the this one the most just cuz I like that sauce man

Though chicken heart chicken Liber yeah everything whatever but the authentic really on the street is the barbecue pork no it’s amazing I love the sauce love pork Smokey juicy as well yes the food’s amazing yeah I’m super happy mhm it’s a very different style from the

Rest of Southeast Asia h yes our food is like really family style y so it’s not like the Americans that you order your own meal and that’s your own blade yeah we sh so for us is like we we order food for the family that’s how we eat that’s

Why I’m having problem now on how will I serve this to the non-american is it like a bowl style or family style but most of the most of them really wants like their own meal got it yeah not Filipino but they uh so Philippines always share that’s why I make I make uh

Like uh the Panet with the Lumia with the meat together got it so it’s like a meal one one meal there you go that’s uh the national noodles the national noodles mhm every um birthday or any celebration we always have this the lumpia and the barbecue oh yeah yes that

Three so what do you call these noodles is this chain no no it’s beon pet p pet yeah mhm man it’s hard to get a small bite here trying there you go oh they’re beautiful so that’s match with the Lumia barbecue sometimes bread sometimes bread sometimes bread we put a inside a

Hawaiian roll mhm with that and then that’s that’s it try it with the lemon yeah try it with that and you’ll see the difference man I’m stilling that chili that was a hot chili my gosh let’s try with lemon so you also you said you use a lot of lemongrass in the

Philippines we have lemongrass that’s inside the inside Leon mhm well these noodles I mean what am I doing here bro way better with that yes mhm in the Philippines it’s calaman C camman see it’s a h a small lime but it’s very strong it’s has a a a

Distinct taste yeah it’s it’s like kind of like a keyme but a little bit sweeter smaller like sweeter what do we have left Kar Kar and K two ways so we have two ways so what’s the difference here this one just is beef only mhm mhm with

Bok choy the green beans and the we we fried the eggplant but inside you have U it’s orinal it’s really oxtail but we have beef only here thank you so much eggplant fried eggplant too I haven’t used a spoon as a knife in a long time I’ll tell you cuz all all my

Filipino friends are like man how come you haven’t bought a place of maati I’m like yeah yo yo who’s paying for that bill it’s expensive now well Airbnb yeah yeah no of course of course just leave it as an Airbnb here we go so it’s peanut yes it’s nice with a B

Choy nice and crunchy yeah lots of moisture in there so you have to get this the shrimp paste a little bit a like too much uh just a little you little it does smell different it’s very strong oo it’s actually intense one with the vegetables mhm it will taste like tast

Like shrimp times two yeah times two I mean it’s very pungent yes it’s like a very very very intense yes but it’s good shrimp shrimp paste is another thing they use all over Asia yeah everybody uses another one is just pork knuckle deep fried so we have a version of

Chicken of this also all of this we have chicken version chicken Bion you also have some some of them you have fish version the knuckle right all the collagen the tendons that that’s what makes it good for me there go it’s the tendance oh my God skin also and dip it

With the um the sauce this is beautiful at this piece this is a huge piece actually wow so crispy so right here this is like chich cha Ron you have some meat some fat vinegar yes so much more flavor yeah I made a verion of pork for the beep

Version of Kare so I made a crispy P which is a popular really um so bar food I made it to aare so you can actually eat it with rice with the stew with the vegetable so it’s up to you how you want to eat it either

You want it to be fried only or you want to with the vegetables or with the sauce yeah yes so I made like another version of that got it yeah cuz all bar food always fried because it soaks with alcohol it helps it helps cuz if not you’re like always it’s drunk yeah

Speaking of did you want to try a red horse we have red horse red horse I’ll try a red horse I’ll try one yeah I’ll try it I’ll try one red horse is their is their National Beer this is the red horse beer the red horse send me like come F come

Guys look look at the inside see all the seasoning in there as well what a monster this feeds like 20 people this is a big bite right here bro the seasoning the moistness it’s very unique it’s insane Anthony berdan said actually this is the best lechon that he ever had

The the Filipino Leon the Filipino Leon oo that’s the seasoning that he tried I mean it’s different I I love Cuban Aon uhhuh but this is something different uh-huh like that that flavor inside the lemongrass as well we were in Windwood also a special event for filippin and
