Kaliwa - in Tagalog, means, left. My husband, chef Armstrong is left handed and as a Filipina, I wish to share with you three cultures under one roof - something a little left from the norm, a little ‘Kaliwa.’ 

Kaliwa pays homage to the ancient culture of my homeland, the Philippines. 

We offer culinary tribute to two other Asian cuisines, Korean & Thai whose customs have formed our roots as a family.

We do our best to ensure quality and authenticity of ingredients. Ingredients are sourced from the relevant country and all components—from spice pastes to gravies and blends—are made in house.

We intend for Kaliwa to be a representation of the beauty of three strong cultures with common threads.

We hope you enjoy that which comes from the heart.
