Manila Galleons dinner brings together two cultures


Next month, in observance of Filipino American Heritage Month and National Hispanic Heritage Month, JSix chef Anthony Sinsay will collaborate with chef Javier Plascencia for a dinner called “The Manila Galleon.”

The dinner, Sinsay said, “will explore the relationship between the two cultures” of the Philippines and Mexico. The Manila Galleons were Spanish trading ships that for more than 200 years linked the Philippines and Mexico.

“While ships from the Philippines carried crafts and goods like china, silk and spices like clove, cinnamon and curry to European nations via Spain, galleons from Mexico to the Philippines carried new world silver, livestock and other metals …,” Sinsay said.

The six-course dinner will be held Oct. 11 at Jsix with tickets running $85, with $35 supplemental charge for beverage pairings. To make a reservation, call (619) 531-8744.
