FILIPINO FOOD FOR EVERYONE
After establishing B Sweet, her catering company, dessert trucks and dessert bar, Chef Barb Batiste is FINALLY bringing her savory cooking to the masses. Her first focus... Filipino food! Chef Barb has been making Filipino food with her mom, aunt and grandma since she was a little girl. The Big Boi menu features Chef Barb's versions of Filipino classic recipes and her childhood favorites. Stay tuned for monthly specials as well.
Filipino Food Movement
Filipino cuisine is a rising star in the food world, but the question still lingers, what exactly is it? The dishes draw inspiration from the Spanish culture. The typically sweet, salty and sour ingredients come together to accommodate nearly every palette. it is so hard to describe the cuisine with just one dish since it is so diverse, but no list of Filipino food would be complete without Adobo, the national dish of the Philippines.
What's in a name?
Why "BIG BOI"
If you have been to Chef Barb's B Sweet Dessert Bar, then you know how much she loves her dad and honors his memory. His name was Angel, but was fondly nicknamed Boi. Funny enough, MANY Filipino families have a Tito Boi, Lolo Boi or simply a Boi.
So to pay homage to her father and all the other Boi's out there, we chose Big Boi as the name of the restaurant.
If you look closely at the seal, you will see that it is 2 upper case letter B's that are entangled to create a heart. The 2 B's represent Big Boi, Barb Batiste and the unwavering love.
