We all love a good snack to pair with a cocktail or an ice-cold beer, but in the Phillipines these appetizers—called pulutan, derived from the root word “pulot,” which means to pick up—are part of the culture.
Since last year, local chef and musician Dylan Ubaldo and his team have been working to introduce Baltimore to the flavors from the Southeast Asian island country through their pop-up, Calasag, with menus offering dishes like BBQ skewers, fried fish, coconut rice, pickled mango or papaya and much more.
Tonight they’ll return to R. House, taking over Remington breakfast sandwich spot Ground and Griddled and turning it into a Pulutan Party with food, karaoke and drink specials. Come prepared to sing some hits, drink and taste some of the same street cuisine you might find walking through the cities of the Phillipines. A note to our night owls: Calasag should be serving well past midnight.
Starts at 9 p.m., R. House, 301 W. 29th Street, Facebook event.
