Be More Pacific Filipino Kitchen and Bar One Year Anniversary Dinner
November 15 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm - $35
Giovan Cuchpin and Mark Pascual’s Be More Pacific brick-and-mortar Filipino spot is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a special anniversary menu, and more on November 15th at 7 p.m. Chef Salvador “Buddy” Melgarejo, who grew up in the Philippines and is known for his innovative interpretations of Filipino classics and comfort food, is debuting four new dishes in addition to roasting a suckling pig. Austin’s über-popular Be More Pacific serves authentic Filipino fare and is located just off trending Anderson Lane.
The anniversary celebration on November 15 begins with a suckling pig starter (while supplies last) and moves on to a mini-kamayan plattercurated by Melgarejo that features pork ribs three ways (adobo, asado, and Filipino barbecue); and debuts five new dishes, including binagoongang gulay (squash, long beans, eggplant, and red onion sautéed in shrimp paste); ginataang gulay (pork with squash, long beans, eggplant, and red onion stewed in coconut milk); kilawin (Filipino ceviche made with tuna); pares (Filipino beef stew); and bicol express (pork sautéed in shrimp paste and coconut milk atop green mango). The dessert feature is a Be More Pacific fan favorite, halo-halo, a specialty ice cream made with Amy’s Ice Cream and ube, a sweet purple yam that is used in many traditional Filipino treats.
There will be a raffle, giveaways, and a limited amount of free T-shirts. Reserved tickets now on Eventbrite for $35 per person (plus tax,+ fees). On-site tickets are $43 per person. Alcohol and gratuity are not included in ticket prices. And of course, kids eat free.
