Filipino food usually isn't usually paired with wine. Actually, we've never seen it paired with anything more than San Miguel beer. So when LAist was invited to Six Taste's Filipino food and wine event last Friday at the Far Bar's lounge in Little Tokyo, our interest was piqued.

The five-course tasting menu, set up in stations around the lounge, included traditional Filipino comfort food like pancit (noodles), lumpiang Shanghai (deep fried pork egg rolls) lechon kawali (pan fried roasted pork belly) and chicken adobo. Desserts included Manila Machine's ube cupcake and The Park's Finest BBQ's rice-cornbread mashup bibingka. The veggies were scarce, but the crowd didn't seem to mind. At all.
