    Barrio Fiesta Restaurant

    Since 1952, Barrio Fiesta has provided the Filipino people with the authentic taste of true Filipino cuisine.

    It must have taken a lot of courage when Sixta Evangelista Ongpauco, founder of Barrio Fiesta, decided to turn her home on what was then Highway 54 (now Epifanio de los Santos Avenue or Edsa) in Caloocan City, Philippines, into the first Filipino fine dining restaurant, with a menu made up almost entirely of native delicacies

    Like the Filipino tradition it has been named after, Barrio Fiesta was, for a whole generation of Filipinos, a place for festivities, celebrations and the gathering of families and friends. Many milestones were marked by a visit to a Barrio Fiesta branch in the Philippines.

    Barrio Fiesta became the venue of choice for events and occasions people hoped to remember for a long, long time, if not forever. Weddings, graduations, christenings, birthdays – celebrations were not true celebrations unless they were held at Barrio Fiesta.

    Milpitas, California

    In 1992, the Ongpauco’s brought and opened The Original Barrio Fiesta of Manila in Milpitas, California. Since then, Filipinos and their friends have come to love the taste of authentic Filipino cuisine.

    Once inside the Barrio Fiesta Restaurant in Milpitas, California, you will be transported back in time to the Philippines with its ornate and festive ambience – each piece originally brought here from the Philippines and geared towards complementing the sumptuous feast you are about to partake in!

    Filipino way

    Barrio Fiesta enhances bonding among kith and kin by serving food in typical Filipino fashion. Everything is placed in the middle of the table to be shared by everyone, the way it is done in homes, instead of being served portioned out on individual plates.

    The cooks at the Barrio Fiesta Restaurant in Milpitas, California, were all trained extensively from the Barrio Fiesta Restaurants in the Philippines. This is our way of making sure that you really enjoy the “Taste of Home!”
