In support of independent food establishments hard hit by the ongoing pandemic, music events organizer UNKNWN launches a dining experience featuring special takeaway menus. 

13 restaurants, including OTO (in photo), are serving specially made takeaway set meals for the weekend food event HAIN. 
Happening on Sept. 17-19, “HAIN: Takeaway, Together” features 13 restaurants in Metro Manila. As the event is named after the Filipino word that means “to set the table”, “to serve”, participating restaurants have prepared takeaway menus exclusively for HAIN. The organizers started accepting orders on Sept. 9 and will be continuing until the 19th. 

“One of the main goals of HAIN is to boost the morale of our community during these trying times. It’s really nice seeing everyone joining forces, from restaurateurs and chefs to diners and even our creative friends, to make this initiative possible,” says HAIN co-organizer Ash Rye.

Participating restaurants include Angel’s Kitchen, The Bowery NYC Comfort Food, Lampara, OTO, Borough, Nic’s Park Terraces, Hai Shin Lou, Futur:st, Square One Hospitality, Cheech & Chang Hong Kong Roasts, TETSUO, Mijo Comfort Food, and The Bistro by Element Boutique Hotel.

“We also want to show that these struggling but surviving restaurants are endlessly creating and adapting, and that ensuring our industry’s place in the future would require a collective effort,” added co-organizer and Futur:st cofounder Samantha Nicole. 

The set meals are available at www.hain-mnl.shop for P1,500 each. Fifteen percent of the sales from the event will go to Rise Against Hunger PH. 

Event partner indoor farm Future Fresh will be providing the participating restaurants with hydroponically grown and pesticide-free greens. HAIN is also working with IFEX Philippines and Sustainability Solutions Expo to provide sustainable food packaging throughout the weekend. 

Each HAIN kit will also come with a complimentary Singleton of Dufftown 12 Year Old Pocket Single Malt Scotch together with custom cocktail recipes concocted by each partner restaurant. The meal kit also comes with a video-on-demand highlighting the offerings of each establishment.
