Some food photos of the Filipino dishes served at the LASA Pop-up Restaurant at Elysian on July 31, 2015 in Los Angeles. 

Filipino-Americans Chad and Chase Valencia give food-curious LA diners a pop-up dinner experience of their gourmet interpretation of Philippine cuisine. I was glad to be there with friends to finally experience it. 

What a mesermizing dinner! The reinterpretation of Filipino food was impressive. I haven’t experienced a whirlwind reinvention of food since Chef Ludo Lefevre started the Los Angeles fine dining pop-up dinner craze with his Ludo Bites. 

Believe me when I say that not one dish at the LASA Pop-up by Chad and Chase Valencia was short of extraordinary. Their food is a must.
