Carrying the tradition of a Filipino feast, Mama Sita served plentiful tasting portions including arroz caldo, chicken inasal, paksiw na bangus, pansit palabok, sitaw & tofu-stir-fry, caldereta, champorado, sisig, barbeque, and the newly introduced adlai paella.

Adlai is an ancient heirloom grain that needs to be preserved. The Department of Agriculture states that adlai is a great alternative for rice and they see a potential for it to be the solution for our national food security problem. Not only will it help feed our people, adlai is also a grain packed with medicinal purposes.
