On Monday, March 23, The Spotted Pig will host its fourth annual Filipino Night, where April Bloomfield and her sous chef Edie Ugot will create traditional Filipino dishes all evening in honor of chef Ugot’s Filipino heritage.
Favorites from previous years will be mixed with a selection of new Filipino dishes. Highlights from the upcoming menu for the evening, which will be available alongside the restaurant’s à la carte offerings, will include lumpia Shanghai (crispy egg rolls with ground pork and vegetables, served with a sweet chile sauce); kare-kare oxtail stew with peanut butter and vegetables; and shrimp ginataan, a curry with coconut milk, fermented fish paste, squash, and long beans.
For dessert, the chefs will create polvorones, a traditional Spanish and Filipino toasted rice cookie, as well as purple yam and pandan ice cream.
San Miguel Filipino beer and authentic Filipino sodas will also be available.
Dinner will be served from 5:30 p.m. until 2 a.m., and tables are first-come, first served.
