Event Description

This is a one-of-a-kind vegan filipino feast on banana leaves. We’re a 3rd year Smorgasburg vendor featured in NYTimes, VICE, Refinery29, Insider Foods, and Gothamist for our vibrant fruit sorbets, flan brûlée cupcakes, and frozen dessert bowls.

The Filipino tagalog word kamay means ‘hands’, but our hands-eating-optional vegan kamayan dinner feast in Manhattan’s East Village will feature an array of meat alternatives from exotic mushroom varieties such as oyster and snow to homemade seitan and tofu.
