Islas Pinas, Filipino Food and Heritage Village, at DoubleDragon Plaza

Yesterday, we were able to sample the "Best of the Philippines," at the newly opened Islas Pinas in DoubleDragon Plaza at DD Meridian Park in the Bay Area. Islas Pinas, an indoor food and heritage village, is the newest tourism destination in Metro Manila featuring Filipino food all over the country, and distinct cultural, heritage, and tourist sites recreated in a 2,500 square meter space that can seat up to 700 persons.

Islas Pinas is a collaboration between the DoubleDragon Group, and Chef Margarita For├ęs, Asia’s Best Female Chef of 2016, whose mission is to bring Filipino cuisine to global prominence. Islas Pinas is a project that aims to inspire love for the Philippines and to cultivate patriotism by showcasing the country’s beautiful sites and diverse regional cuisines

ALAMAT or legend, tells the story of the different regions of the Philippines through its signature dishes. BILAO is coined after the woven winnowing basket where comfort snacks like pansit (fried noodles) and puto (rice cakes) are usually served, while PANADERYA offers neighborhood bakery favorites such pan de sal and kalihim. TUSOK-TUSOK, on the other hand, offers urban street food finds like barbecue on stick, isaw (grilled chicken intestine) and kwek-kwek (fried quail eggs).

Isaw, Chicken Feet, Pork BBQ, Kwek-kwek, Fish Ball / Squid Ball, Kikiam, are some of the items you'll find at Tusok-Tusok.

PANULAK or beverage is where the samalamig (cold drinks with different flavors) will be available. Lastly, PAMPANG or shore will allow guests to enjoy chosen fresh catch cooked to their preference.
