About Filipino Food Week
Celebrating Filipino Cuisine
This June 9-15, the Philippine Consulate General in Honolulu will be spearheading the Filipino Food Week here in Hawaii. During FFW, participating restaurants and chefs in Oahu and Maui will incorporate Filipino food in their menu. Participating establishments shall feature special Filipino food items to be sold for lunch and dinner, happy hour, lunch/dinner, or any other combinations at the option of the restaurants.
This year’s FFW will highlight Filipino dishes which use coconut as an ingredient. Restaurants will prepare at least one dish (either appetizer, pupus, main course, dessert, or drinks) inspired by one of the Philippine’s most popular ingredients.
