Sunda Plans Celebration of Filipino Cuisine

So, of all the places I've eaten, I have a handful of favorite memorable meals and among those is one I had at Sunda (read about it here.) The place is chic and classy. The food is delicious and unforgettable.

Sunda has a special event coming up that sounds delightful and features the food of the Philippines, where owner Billy Dec's mother is from. The dinner highlights Filipino culture with a feast that can be enjoyed sans silverware, as is tradition in the Philippines. The Kamayan feast will include:

Whole Crispy Fish
Lechon Kawali
Shrimp and Chicken Adobo Skewers
Dinaguan (Pork Blood Stew)
Crispy Soft Shell Crab
Lumpia (Filipino Eggrolls)
Tomato Onion Salad
Garlic Vinaigrette Dipping Sauce
Halo Halo Dessert (Mini Version of the “Sunda Sundae”)

The spread is served atop a bed of rice and complemented by a featured cocktail, the Manila Mai Thai with Tanduay Dark Rum, Tanduay Silver Rum, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, Orgeat, Gingerbreat Hibiscus Tea Syrup and Lime Juice.

The dinner takes place Sunday, July 12 from 6 - 8 p.m. at Sunday, 110 W. Illinois St. in Chicago. Tickets are $50 per person and reservations may be made here.
