For Krizia Cherece, making traditional Filipino food brings her back to happy memories. From a young age, Krizia could be found helping her mother in the kitchen and celebrating with her friends and family over longstanding recipes like lumpiang sariwa (vegetables in an egg crepe wrapper with peanut sauce) and pancit bihon (stir fry noodles with vegetables) — just two of the delicious dishes you’ll find at Wengay’s Kitchen. The unique restaurant stall can be found at Spice Bridge, a unique collaborative space that brings together the culinary talents of eight different immigrant-owned businesses. In contrast to Filipino fusion restaurants, Krizia is passionate about sharing traditional, authentic recipes that have been passed down through generations.
Pro tip: The ube ensaymada is a must order! It’s a dense bun filled with delicious ube jam.
