From 10 am to 5 pm, dozens of food trucks and vendors will descend on the plaza serving up food like your Lola used to make. (I should say “almost” because no one can beat my Owa’s chicken adobo, just saying.)
The vendors confirmed so far are:
|Ninong’s||Hopia Like It||Grill City|
|Johnny Pacific LA||Eat Bolo||Kindness and Mischief|
|Rice and Shine||Kitchen 1726||DK’s Donuts|
|Cakies Love||Ensaymada Project||Helado’s Pops|
|Bsweet||Paella Paella||Baked Desserts|
|Benadditz||Mini Kabob||Baon Truck|
|Spoon & Pork||Manini Grindz||White Rabbit|
|Thai Mexican Cocina|
And don’t forget that inside the mall, there are other Filipino food options including Chowking, Grill City, Jollibee, Leelin Bakery & Cafe and Rick’s BBQ.
The organizers of EAT. PLAY. MOVE. know that while Filipino cuisine is really tasty, it’s neither the lightest nor the healthiest fare around so they’ve added “play” and “move” components to counteract the “eat” part. PLAY. features musical performances by a variety of Filipino talent including singer-songwriter Jeremy Passion, YouTuber Megan Delacey and beatboxer EVMB.
MOVE. involves fitness activations for all ages, including Zumba, yoga, fitness tests, competitions. Personal trainers will also be on hand to assist those who need help moving or for those who want to set up training later.
Consider yourself warned: You now have ample time to work out, drop a few pounds and/or find the right stretchy pants to wear to the festival on Oct. 7.
