BEEF MAMI

Just cause it’s heating up outside doesn’t mean we don’t love a nice steaming bowl of mami. We used fresh noodles for this classic Pinoy fave.

We can’t thank you enough for all the support and love you have given us this year despite all the challenges we all have to overcome.😃👏🏼💯



We would also like to thank the small businesses who collaborated with us and gave us the chance to work with them. Please continue on supporting these small businesses because they need all the help right now. Shop small, shop local.☺️



As for us, we have been reshifting our focus again on the frontlines of this pandemic and we are looking forward to be seeing all of you on next year’s popups! We also have been blessed with growing our Mekeni Family with twins which we are truly excited about!❤️❤️❤️



We are ready for a new chapter, exciting opportunities and challenges ahead. Mekeni 2021! (Come on 2021) we are ready!💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽 Happy new year to all!💋

Ugly delicious.




A throwback to our very own chicken tocino layered with sunny side up eggs, atchara and garlic aoili sauce. Cozied up with this warm, fluffy and lightly toasted pandesal bread from @thepandesalplace. Good times indeed.

Grilled Yellowtail collar with Java Rice and Eggplant and Salted Egg salad


Back on the islands, my family would look forward to my cousin,Ate Lyn. She would visit us from Davao bringing tasty “pasalubongs” for the whole family to enjoy. Large boxes and crates of durian, pomelos,durian candies and everyone’s favorite: fish collars. Davao, being one of the top exporters in Asia of Bluefin Tuna, nothing came close to getting the best quality of fish around. We would throw it on the grill and season with sea salt, let it grill until it would get crispy and a little bit of char on the outside, cut some calamansi and mix with soy sauce, garnished with chopped “siling labuyo”, get a scoop of steaming white rice and pop a bottle of some ice cold beer.
“Hay naku, sobrang sarap!” (Oh my, So delicious!).

“When someone cooks for you, they are saying something. They are telling you about themselves: where they come from, who they are, and what makes them happy.”
-Anthony Bourdain



This has always been us from the beginning and always will be. It’s not about what’s in or what’s hot. It’s always about us telling our story, how we always wanted to share what makes us happy and reminds us of home hoping we also do the same when you try our food and how it brings back all the good memories. It’s not about the likes or the clout. It’s always what’s deep inside our hearts. Because for us making good food that our nanays, lolas and titas used to make and to be able to share and recreate that for everybody is the ultimate happiness that we can attain. We owe it to them to do our part to keep their passion and enthusiasm going by offering these family recipes not just to the filipinos but to everyone out there.💯🇵🇭❣️

Meet the duo behind Mekeni Filipino Kitchen!

We are a husband & wife team. John Richard was born and raised in the culinary capital of the Philippines, Pampanga (Macabebe, to be exact). Marie is a true born Texan, 1st generation FIL-AM. Los Angeles was where we met and fell in love. After more than 14 years in the City of Angels, we now call Dallas our home. We LOVE the Philippines SO much we go ‘home’ every other year. We are inspired by every trip back. Because both of our families hail from Pampanga, we were brought up around amazing food. We are excited to share our love for the Philippines with YOU through our cooking. Mekeni is a Kapampangan word meaning “Come here / Come Toward”. We invite you and welcome you to come eat at our kitchen.
