Canada's Filipino Restaurant Month | Metro Vancouver Restaurants Prix Fixe Menus

From April 1 to 30, participating restaurants will feature Filipino prix fixe menus that highlight the unique variety of Filipino food, ingredients, and chefs throughout Canada. A more detailed blog post and list of all participating restaurants in Canada are available here.

The Philippine Department of Tourism and Philippine Consulate General in Calgary announced Canada's First-Ever Filipino Restaurant Month.

The project is jointly executed by the Philippine Embassy in Ottawa and the Philippine Consulates General (PCG) in Toronto and Vancouver. The event aims to bring Filipino cuisine to the mainstream Canadian market, inspire Canadians to explore Filipino food, and develop a better appreciation of our culture. The event also wants to promote Filipino restaurants in various provinces across Canada and encourage dining at local restaurants.
