Kainbigan Filipino Comfort Food
Chef Charleen Caabay has been spreading her native Filipino food around the Bay area for years. She's done so through a catering service, by cooking at well-known venues, and even while running a weekly pop-up restaurant in Oakland. It was in Oakland, too, that Charleen finally dropped anchor and opened her brick and mortar shop. She named it Kainbigan, which is a combination of Tagalog words meaning "Let's eat, my friends". And here, diners certainly eat. They enjoy made-to-order dishes such as a garlic noodle special with a secret house garlic sauce, adobo dishes loaded with braised meat or veggies stewed in a soy-based sauce, and stir-fried rice dishes. Breakfast enthusiasts can also try silog: a Filipino breakfast of house-made tocino (sweet cured chicken), tapa (beef), or longanisa, served with garlic rice and a fried egg on top that Charleen cooks up no matter the time of day.
