Vancouver, 23 April 2023 - In the final stretch of the 2023 Filipino Restaurant Month in Canada (FRMC), the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver continues to promote Filipino restaurants and their signature dishes.

In Vancouver, Pampanga’s Cuisine, Plato Filipino and Shameless Buns were visited by the Consulate team.  Consul Analyn Ratonel brought her family to sample Pampanga’s famous sisig while Consular Assistant Celso Magpile, together with his family, decided to dine in at Plato Filipino for lunch.  Last stop was at Shameless Buns in Vancouver where Consular Assistants Edwin Batallones and Kervin Mon Perez sampled Shameless prix fixe meals.

The FRMC is the Philippine Posts in Canada’s Common Cultural Calendar Project spearheaded by the Philippine Consulate General in Calgary and Philippine Department of Tourism – San Francisco.  For the entire month of April, select Filipino restaurants in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, and beyond are offering affordable Filipino meal sets.

Diners can still visit any of the FRMC participating restaurants until April 30 for a chance to win local and national prizes.  END
