Frequently Asked Questions
What is Kamayan?
"Kamayan" is the traditional Filipino way of eating with your hands.
Our Kamayan service is a cultural culinary experience that is fun for the whole family. Kamayan is a traditional way of eating in the Philippines. The word "Kamayan" literally means to eat with your hands. The food comes out family-style and is plated on banana leaves that cover your whole table. Your choice of rice will be plated in the center of the table, and all of the traditional dishes will be decoratively placed for everyone to share. There will be no plates and no utensils, your dinnerwill be really "hands on." ;)
Why do I need to make a reservation for a Kamayan?
Our Kamayan menu is food not typically found on our daily menu. We need time to shop, prep, marinade your Kamayan feast for your group. We put in a lot of labor and effort to bring you the kind of Kamayan experience that is currently only found at MFK.
Are your prices for a certain number of people per group?
All Kamayan prices are for each individual person, we do not have any group pricing.
