DO YOU KNOW? Cañao-Adivay Bar and Restaurant was formerly known as Bokod Lunch from 1993-2005. Mr. Erico Bestid, the owner and a proud Bokodian who belongs to the Ibaloi tribe named it after his hometown Bokod, a municipality in the province of Benguet. During those years, three branches of it operated at Dagohoy, Magsaysay and Lakandula streets, Baguio City. As his business gained popularity among Ibalois from other municipalities like Itogon, Kabayan, Sablan, Tublay, La Trinidad, and other tribes in the Cordilleras like the Kankanaeys from Bontoc and the Ifugao miners, he changed the name into Canao-Adivay Bar and Restaurant in 2006 for inclusivity. On the same year he moved to a single, wider space at Lakandula Street. By this, nobody is left out.

Mr. Bestid envisioned an everyday Cañao and Adivay where anytime, anyone can come. His purpose is to introduce, promote, and keep the Ibaloi culture and delicacies in the commercial urban world. This is evident in his Cañao-styled ambiance, menu, and beverages.

The Cañao (pronounced as kan-yau) is a festival or ceremony, a liturgy or service, a rite or ritual and offering in the highlands of the Cordilleras–in the Luzon area of the Philippines. It is a celebration for productive activities where animals are offered in thanksgiving. This is also done during marriages, healing, birth, death anniversaries, special occasions and voyages where prayer plays a significant role. Cordillerans or Igorots invoke spirits with offerings of animals, food and other material things prescribed by the native priests .

Adivay is an Ibaloi term which means “coming together”. This literally means gathering of people to socialize by means of a dance (tayao), song (badiw), or telling stories and jokes where food and ricewine (tapey) are served.

Mr. and Mrs. Erico B. Bestid, owner of the Cañao-Adivay Bar and Restaurant, dance with the beat of the gongs (as part of the Adivay, "come together") around pigs about to be butchered in celebration of a Cañao (a festival, ceremony, ritual) offered for the digging out of their parents' remains for reburial from being buried six feet under into a tomb out of what was left after 1-2 years, an Ibaloi culture still practiced by some in Bokod, Benguet. It is from this occasion the name of the restaurant was derived.
