This is our award-winning dish that earned the Grand Prize in 2019 of EPACS' Vegan Cooking Competition.
Ginatan is a traditional Filipino dish made with pork, shrimps, pumpkin and beans then stewed in coconut milk steeped with fermented shrimp paste.
We are doing a Matariki special featuring indigenous NZ & Māori ingredients given the Filipino treatment:
Roasted hangi-style pumpkin, kumara with blistered beans, kōwhitiwhiti (seasonal)
and burnt greens, stewed in a karengo-flavoured coconut-based veloute then sprinkled with horopito flakes.
Served with rice.
Please note that we are a pop-up experience, and our format is a hybrid between a takeaway / casual dining. All items can be taken away, or you have the option to consume these onsite once served to you. We operate in a small but gorgeous and quirky gallery-slash-art studio in the heart of Eden Terrace, and as such, we have limited seating capacity in the venue if you choose to hang around and enjoy your kai onsite.
Please be mindful of social distancing guidelines and that you may potentially share a huge table with people outside your bubble.
Current COVID guidelines apply in whichever setting we are operating, so please if you are not feeling well or have been sick -- as much as we would love to have you with us -- kindly stay home coz we all want to spread the love & kindness, not the germs :)
Drinks and additional items can be purchased onsite for your convenience, including non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages from the day's menu. We can only honour EFTPOS or online banking at the day.
These are tough times for everyone, especially for our hospo warriors in the industry. It has been a roller coaster of a ride since the start of the pandemic, and we are just grateful to be getting back on our feet. Thank you for all the love and support for us here at Luntian, and we promise to keep on serving you kai straight not only from our kitchens... but from our hearts.
Maraming salamat po (thank you -- in Filipino ❤️) x
