Filipino Kamayan Feast Oct. 3

BENSON – When’s the last time you ate with your fingers in public?

Tayo is hosting a pop-up Filipino Kamayan Feast Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 6:30pm at The B Side of Benson Theatre, 6058 Maple St.

“Kamayan” is a Filipino word that means to “eat with your hands.” During the Oct. 3 public feast – the first of its kind in Omaha – long tables will be set and covered in banana leaves, which act as a substitute for plates. A bed of rice will be placed on the banana leaves across the entire table to act as a foundation for the entrees.

The cost of the event is $30 per person, which includes two apps and five entrees plus rice. To purchase tickets, visit and click on the “get tickets” link.
