A Filipino Food Festival, Billed As L.A.'s First Ever, Is Coming To Eagle Rock
Filipino food has been on the city's mind, so it’s only fitting for a new Filipino food festival to drop in on Eagle Rock next month.
Organizers are billing “Eat. Play. Move.” as the "1st FILIPINO FOODIE FEST." It’s coming on October 7, and will happen at the Eagle Rock Plaza, which is already home to Filipino options such as a Chowking and a Leelin Bakery & Cafe.
It looks like the fare will take traditional flavors and present them with a different slant—on the event’s social channels, we spot sisig chilaquiles, adobo paella, and a lot of ube-infused desserts. So far, the lineup of participants include:
Organizers say on the event's Facebook page that there will also be live musical events (hence the “play”) as well as some “fun fitness related challenges” (hence the “move”). The event runs on October 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (though you’d probably want to get there early), and is free of admission.
The Eagle Rock Plaza is at 2700 Colorado Blvd, Eagle Rock.
