Filipino Food Movement Introduces
Mabuhay Nights

A bespoke Filipino pop-up dinner series will takeover Newtown's Sydney Cebu Lechon. Say mabuhay – hello and welcome – to the Filipino Food Movement’s inaugural Mabuhay Nights. This pop-up dining series will showcase the depth and variety of Filipino food and culture in a succession of events.

Mabuhay and G’day! An Australian introduction to modern Filipino food

I’ve always thought of food as the gateway to a culture, and I’ve loved finding out more about my Filipino heritage through the Filipino Food Movement Australia (but much more on that later). I’ve met other Filipinos with a shared love of Filipino culture, who, like me, use food as the means of understanding a people (all hail King Anthony Bourdain).

Experience a taste of The Philippines
in Sydney

The month of May marks a turn in weather, a cementing of routine, a month between the beauty of the Easter break and the respite of the Queen's birthday long weekend. You just want to get away, head to an island paradise and experience something different, possibly sip some sweet coconut juice while you're at it.

When you insult Filipino food,
you insult Filipino culture

Will Mahusay, owner of Sydney Cebu Lechon, has broken the mould and opened in Newtown. "Sixty per cent of our customers are non-Filipinos which tells me that slowly but surely our food is getting recognised," he says.

Mabuhay Nights, a unique dining experience featuring coconut

The Filipino Food Movement’s inaugural  pop-up series will highlight the magical taste of coconut. Head chef, Andrei Balingit and up-and-coming Filipina chef Dhanae Dizon will create a unique dining experience and lead diners to one of a kind culinary journey through the Southern region of the Philippines. They will use seasonal, local Australian produce paired with the humble coconut. Sydney-based Filipino Food Movement Australia's Bambi Manlulo tells us more.
