Chef Monsod (pictured below), known for her Asian-inspired à la carte menu, is adding two exceptional dishes that pay tribute to her Filipino roots: Cebuano lechon with pickled mustard seed, jus, peach salsa, and herbs, and grilled whole fish with fish sauce caramel.

To sweeten the deal, executive pastry chef Laura Warren is crafting a unique Thai tea tiramisu that promises to be the perfect finish to your meal.

Plus, a portion of the proceeds from these specials will benefit AAPI Women Lead, an inter-generational organization that strengthens the social and political power of AAPI communities through the leadership of AAPI women and girls in solidarity with other communities of color.

See you there!

Mark your calendars and celebrate AAPI Heritage Month at ANIMAE to enjoy these delectable dishes while supporting a fantastic cause!
