Taglish Filipino-American Eatery Coming to Lotte Market
Updated: Sep 9, 2019
The Taglish menu will be an homage to the former Culinary Director of Bento Group Chef Michael Collantes‘ Filipino heritage and American upbringing.
The menu will offer a glimpse into the American side of Fil-Am food with longanisa burgers and fried chicken, some modern takes on Filipino classics, and some original dishes.it will also feature familiar Filipino cuisine staples including Chicken Adobo (the national dish of the Philippines) marinated and braised chicken with garlic, soy, and vinegar, Kare Kare (a slow-cooked-falling-off-the-bone oxtail and peanut stew), and Lumpia (crispy pork spring rolls).
The word “taglish” is a slang term that refers to the main spoken language of Filipinos — an intertwining of Tagalog and English.
