A Filipino pop-up restaurant has opened up at the Food District at Square One in Mississauga.

Kumain Kitchen, which prides itself in showcasing Filipino flavours around the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), will be at the Food District from now until Mar. 1, 2023.

Guests who visit the pop-up can expect to see various menu items such as classic desserts and dishes from around the world made with a Filipino twist.

Some of Kumain Kitchen’s menu items include its sinigang chicken sandwich, ube chicken waffle and fried chicken, fried chicken with gravy, chicken inasal, furikake boneless fried chicken and more.

Along with savoury items, the menu also features options for those with a sweet tooth such as milo drinks, buko pandan and ube karioka.

“The inspiration behind our menu was our desire to highlight that Filipino food can be beautiful, artistic and full of flavour,” reads Kumain Kitchen’s pop-up page on Square One’s website.

“At the beginning, we saw that there wasn’t a lot of Filipino small business out there. So we took a leap and started one.”

Currently, Kumain Kitchen does not have a restaurant location but continues to do pop-ups, food markets, food festivals and other events.

While the team hopes to have a physical Kumain Kitchen location in the future, they currently offer delivery, pick-up and catering services.
