About Miguel Reyes

Miguel was born and raised in the Philippines, growing up with strong influences from his Ilokano family from the north. Miguel distinctly remembers all the fiestas his parents would bring him to as a child and the weekends spent chasing goat or counting cattle and tilapia fish in the farms. Food was always central in all of his family's gatherings and this is what inspired Miguel to leverage food as a conduit of bringing people together, sharing conversations and having a good time despite everyone's busy schedule. Miguel aims to share these Filipino dishes with every fellow Californian to enjoy!
