I absolutely loved our Kamayan Cooking Class w/ Casto! This was a unique double date night for me, my boyfriend and our friends who were a married couple. The food is ABSOLUTELY GOOD (We can never get enough of Filipino food) & you get good value for your money because you get to prepare & learn how to make the dishes, eat them & take them home if you don't finish them! Even though all of us have tried and cooked Filipino food like lumpia (egg rolls), pork belly & bbq before (2 of us are Filipinas, 1 is half-Filipino & 1 Puerto Rican-American), this was still a unique experience because we learned new cooking techniques and new ingredients that we could do ourselves at home. The ambiance is very homey & very much like Filipino hospitality--cozy and full of food and conversations. We felt at ease doing the tasks in the kitchen while sharing stories about our experiences in the Philippines and our quests for cooking & finding the best Filipino food in the DC area. We recommend this to anyone who wants to learn how to make easy, flavourful & yummy Filipino food, to anyone who's tried cooking Filipino food before but wants to learn new stuff and to anyone who just wants to share the art of Filipino cuisine to others and eat (a lot!)! We wouldn't mind doing the whole experience again, but potentially with a different menu so that we can experience more of Casto's cooking & learn more!
