You Don’t Want To Miss This Mouthwatering Ube Festival Happening Sunday In SoMa

Enjoy this characteristic Filipino ingredient in everything from horchata to cheesecake.

Kapwa Gardens, a new Filipino outdoor event space in SoMa, is back this weekend with an awesome culinary event! Yum Yams will present a wide selection of dishes featuring ube, a purple yam from the Philippines that’s been taking Instagram by storm for months now. The brightly-colored root vegetable has a slightly nutty, vanilla taste, making it especially delicious in desserts! You can get tickets now for this “celebration of all things ube,” happening on Sunday, July 11 from 12pm-5pm. 

Here’s what you can expect to see at this ube extravaganza:

  • Ensaymada bread rolls with smoked gouda ube, plus other pastries from Pinoy Heritage’s Abaca
  • Ube horchata, ube Bibingka, and ube steam buns from Barya Kitchen
  • Ube pan de sal, croissants, tarts, and more from the Bread Basket
  • American-style ube cookies and treats from Buko Bakes
  • Ube cheesecake, cupcakes, flan and more from Marley’s Treats
  • Magnolia Ice Cream
  • Ube sweet bread, shortbread cookies, and donuts from Suamalie Ano
  • Vegan ube baked goods from Ube Mami
  • Art, self-care products and more from Mandala Organic and MicheleDraws
