Dinner and a Show! Watch a movie about Filipino food while eating Filipino food in Toronto


One of the things we love about living in a city like Toronto is that there is never a shortage of fun things to do. Take for example this project from our friends at the Reel Asian International Film Festival. Together with Eatable Films, they’re showing a new film called “Ulam” at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema on Monday November 12. 

In Alexandra Cuerdo‘s new film, the next generation of Filipino American chefs and restaurateurs talk about Filipino food and culture. 

Ulam is Pilipino for main dish, and Filipino cuisine is ready to take centre stage in the North American food scene.

From the singularly unique experience of eating with your hands to Filipino staples like adobo, lumpia and pansit, watch award-winning chefs like Nicole Ponseca, Charles Olalia and Alvin Cailan talk about their visions on how they plan to take Filipino food to the next level.

Lamesa Filipino Kitchen, one of Toronto’s best Filipino restaurants, will be on hand to serve food featured in the film.

After the screening, the film’s director will be joined by Toronto-based chefs Robbie Hojilla, Rudy Boquila, Daniel Cancino and restaurateur Les Sabilana in a Q&A moderated by Reel Asian International Film Festival’s Kristine Estorninos.

Ulam is co-presented with Eatable Films as part of the Reel Asian International Film Festival.

Tickets are $49 which includes appetizers and cocktails, as well as dinner and the show.
