noun. Food or other provisions taken to school, work, or on a journey.
Baon is a word that is really deep in the Filipino culture — food that you travel with or food that you take with you, from taking it to lunch to having it be something you bring from a family party. Baon is a reminder of our home, our family, and our love for each other through comforting Filipino food.
We welcome you to our humble lunch counter in Downtown Los Angeles to experience what baon is to us. We serve the comfort food that we grew up with as Filipino Americans, and we carry on the essential flavors of our Filipino culture. We invite you to take a seat at our counter and take a deeper dive into Filipino cuisine or fulfill your cravings that remind you of home.
