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.
You don't need annual leave and a plane ticket for an island getaway. Clear your diary for the night of Wednesday, 8th May 2019, and nab a ticket to The Philippines via The Filipino Food Movement's inaugural Mabuhay Nights pop-up dining series, celebrating Filipino cuisine in Sydney.
For just $90, you'll be treated to a 6-course Modern Filipino Sharing Menu, including snacks and bottomless rice, with each course showcasing one of The Philippines' often-used ingredient, coconut (told you the evening would be like an island getaway).
Filipino-Australian chefs Andrei Balingit and Dhanette Dizon have curated a menu that borrows heavily from various influences regions of the country known for Aklan in the Visayas, home to the wide-eyed Tarsier, the famous resort island of Boracay and the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. Menu items include Adobong Pusit, Binagoongang Baboy, Binakol na Manok and Maja Blanca.
