KAMAYAN - The CASA manila WAY
NOW AVAILABLE FOR TWO DINERS OR MORE!
CASA manila’s popular Kamayan, hand to mouth communal dining was introduced for the first time to Toronto, in 2012. Replicating a tribal celebration theme with distinctive drumming heralds the Kamayan feast laid on fresh banana leaves while you enjoy drinking from real coconut cups. Ours is not a “boodle fight” which is a military term for mess hall eating. The CASA manila way is where we place each inidividual portion directly in front of the Kamayan diner to maintain the hygienic aspect of communal dining. Bonding with family and friends, having fun eating with your hands is an amazing dining experience. Now available for two diners or more!

A Message from the C.E.O., Creative Director & Menu Engineer
Since 2010, my hope was to amplify “what is Filipino” and celebrate the unique diversity of regional and cultural influences found in our food, décor, lifestyle, hospitality and people. Authentic Filipino cuisine cooked the classical way is a blending of cooking methods and ingredients from Spain, China, America, Mexico, Indonesia, and South Asia found in our many recipes, while remaining unmistakably Filipino.
Preserving and promoting our culinary tradition is important to me and is expressed in CASA manila's signature recipes, family style dining, and especially in our communal Kamayan hand to mouth feasting. Our restaurant decor depicts the eclectic feel of the Philippine Islands from the tropical vibe to the colonial influences so you experience the "Pearl of the Orient"
right in the heart of GTA
My culinary philosophy is called “Nature to Nurture”. Simply put, the least we tamper with Mother Nature’s goodness, the more our food will nurture our bodies. We limit the use of MSG, salt, artificial flavoured powders, processed ingredients, and oil. We take other labour intensive steps to make our dishes cleaner and healthier, without compromising the rich, full body of authentic, home-style cooking. We have brought Filipino cuisine into the 21st century by offering vegetarian and gluten free options. We welcome and accommodate those with food allergy sensitivities.
CASA manila embodies the Mabuhay Spirit which means “Welcome and long live!".
We look forward to welcoming you to be our guests.

"Worth the extra trip while visiting from New York --- My husband and I heard about Halo-Halo on an Anthony Bourdain show and I have been curious ever since. While in Toronto we wanted to explore different ethnic foods. On our last day (a Sunday) we drove to CASA Manila - adding another hour of driving to our trip home.
It is a good thing we called ahead for reservations because it sounded like they would be busy. We ordered the pork spring rolls, garlic shrimp, Shrimp/Chicken/Beef Noodle dish, Pork Belly, Halo-Halo, and the flan. IT WAS HEAVEN!
The food was so fresh! The garlic shrimp was my favorite - the sauce was so light and highlighted the freshness of the shrimp. The pork spring rolls and pork belly weren't greasy but filled with flavor. The halo-halo was incredible and the waitress seemed genuinely happy to have us try it, another member of the wait staff looked proud when they brought it out. Every single item was cooked perfectly!
The staff was very helpful but not outwardly as friendly as other restaurants. The decor was very eclectic but had a degree of charm.
I would not hesitate to visit again - it was really very good!"

So far my best experience of Filipino cuisine --- As someone who lives downtown I often take advantage of having access to a car to try out restaurants that have been recommended to me but are a bit too much of an adventure to get to by transit. This is exactly the kind of place that is well worth trying to find a friend with car. This is by far the best experience of Filipino food that I've had in Toronto so far. The dishes are full of incredible tastes and are just large enough to enjoy without overdoing it. That said it would seem that they even have a lunch-time buffet sometimes on holidays which has got to be an even better reason to make the drive up there!

We held our parents wedding anniversary luncheon at Casa Manila, and Mila took care of our party’s every need. She anticipated our crowds’ needs, gave helpful suggestions to everyone’s tastes, while making our event an unforgettable one. And the food? Phenomenal! Plentiful, without sacrificing quality. Filipino food can sometimes be heavy and overly processed. Not here. Flavourful, with loads of fresh options, there was plenty of choice for all. We will definitely be back!

CASA Manila has the best Crispy Pata in Toronto: crispy skin, tasty meat and lean. Beyond the good food, my family and I enjoy the Intramuros ambiance and the creativity that the restaurant's owner Mila infuses the place with.
