Fun “Hands-on” Kamayan Experience @ TK Restobar – Restaurant Bar

When and how was the last time you enjoyed a delicious meal with your hand? My recent Kamayan (which literally means to shake hands or to eat using your hand) at TK Restobar was a novel yet entertaining experience, and definitely a great way to enjoy Filipino cuisine! This is quite a new concept to many of us, so, what to expect? You need at least 4 people to make this happen. For the price of $25 you get a mountain of finger-licious fried chicken, grilled pork in coconut sauce, tofu meatball, spicy flavory beef stew, pineapple and tomato salsa and so on plus banana jackfruit fritters for dessert! I almost needed a friend to roll me out of the place lol.

I highly recommend any novelty seeker or anyone who already enjoys exotic Southeastern Asian cuisine to go and try. I’m already planning to bring my entire family back.

TK Restobar is also famous for their Ramen Burger but I personally have mixed feelings about it. The bun was a bit soggy and sort of falling apart. The patty marinated in a sweet soy-based sauce with fermented vegetables and scallions doesn’t seem particularly unique. But it was for take-out so I’d say still give it a shot!

Gather 4 human beings, hoof it to the Côte-des-Neiges hood and go on an incredible Filipino food adventure at TK Restobar!
