"LOCO MOCO & SH*T" OPENING FOR ONE NIGHT ON OCTOBER 21
SEATTLE, WA—Hawaii & Philippines-themed pop-up restaurant opening for one night at Seattle’s Inay’s Asian Pacific Cuisine on Monday, October 21st.
The pop-up event, titled ”Loco Moco & Sh*t” is curated by Chera Amlag and Geo Quibuyen (Prometheus Brown of Seattle rap duo Blue Scholars). In August 2013, they spearheaded the creation of Adobofest: an adobo cooking contest and block party in Beacon Hill. It was attended by over 250 people featuring 20 competing cooks. Last month, they partnered with Inay’s Asian Pacific Cuisine, the longest-running Filipino restaurant in Seattle, to host their first pop-up restaurant “Gumbo & Sh*t,” which was a rousing success attended by over 100 enthusiastic diners.
With the blessing of Inay’s owner “Kuya” Ernie Rios, Chera & Geo are now launching an ongoing monthly pop-up restaurant event in the restaurant under the project title “Food & Sh*t.” Aiming to bring a fresh, modern and playful take on homemade Asian-Pacific Islander food to the burgeoning Beacon Hill neighborhood, Food & Sh*t will be a monthly event (every 3rd Monday) featuring different themed menus each month and live music. This month’s menu is a culinary homage to Chera’s upbringing in the Philippines and Geo’s childhood in Hawai’i before both settled in Seattle, featuring a menu including:
Jicama and Green Mango with Bagoong Dipping Sauce - 5
Tako Poke Carpaccio - 7
