Filipino food has undergone a renaissance in the past decade. As Filipinos immigrated and assimilated to the United States, many aspects of Filipino culture were lost in the generations after. In an effort to rediscover their culture, young Filipino chefs and entrepreneurs are exploring their identity and redefining Filipino food in what is being called the Filipino Food Movement. The goal of this movement is to give Filipino food a platform to be recognized and celebrated.
At Bonifacio, we want to share the experience of an unapologetically authentic Filipino meal - homemade with an emphasis on ingredients and presentation. Whether for a special meal, a relaxing gathering of friend or exploring new flavors - you’re welcome at our table.
Bonifacio came from our love of food, cooking and feeding people. Like many Filipinos, it’s our way of showing we care. There’s a phrase used in many Filipino homes - Kumain ka na ba - which translates to “have you eaten yet?” Walk into a Filipino home at any time of the day and you’ll be greeted with “Kumain ka na ba?” It’s our way of saying hello.
