It was bound to happen. A food truck and wine pairing, the cuisine of the masses with the high-brow staple make it an intriguing combination. But what makes the Manila Machine and Domaine LA event this Sunday extra unique is that the wine shop's Whitney Adams and Jesse Brawner will be matching food from the popular Filipino food truck with Italian and French wine.

Apparently not such a crazy idea since, as noted by Manila Machine's Nastassia Johnson Filipino food possesses "a wide spectrum of flavors influenced by Malaysia, China, Spain, Mexico, and even the United States," and the truck's "contemporary take on traditional street and home-style Filipino dishes...can provide endless matches with a variety of wine styles."
