The Bamboo Cookhouse to Bring a Taste of the Philippines to 2019 PopUp @ American Tobacco

Filipino Immigrant To Prepare Fusion Cuisine Based In His Roots for Hungry PopUp Customers, March 1-27

(Durham, N.C.) – “Mabuhay!”, an enthusiastic greeting meaning “hello, welcome, live life”, is how The Bamboo Cookhouse, a Filipino-inspired food truck, greets its customers. The Bamboo Cookhouse is the latest eatery to fill the space at the American Tobacco Campus’ PopUp space in Durham.

When Madz Ingleman, owner of The Bamboo Cookhouse, noticed a lack of Filipino cuisine in the Triangle, she knew she needed to turn things around. She began The Bamboo Cookhouse, a food truck that serves the Durham and Raleigh areas, as a way to share the spirit of the Philippines through unique takes on Filipino classic dishes.

Their signature fare includes Pork Sisig, a citrus-marinated pork dish served with rice, and Lumpia, Filipino-style spring rolls, but the menu includes a delicious array of noodles, rice, and meats.

Ingelman believes in community and will be donating a portion of sales during March to Hemophilia of North Carolina, a non-profit organization that aids those affected by a bleeding disorder, in support of Bleeding Disorders Awareness Month.

Ingleman grew up in the Philippines and worked in resorts in Singapore and Florida after college. She then moved to Chicago, where she met her husband, Tim, and had her son. She and her family moved to the Triangle just a few years ago, where she decided to showcase Filipino culture in the area.

The American Tobacco Campus features local entrepreneurs in a PopUp experience that brings unique flavor and culture to the Triangle through good food and community.

    • Monday-Wednesday 11a-3p
