Calasag follows two first-generation Filipino-American entrepreneurs home to the islands, exploring culture and identity through cuisine, as they work to bring Filipino food traditions back to Baltimore.

Maryrose and Dylan have been working together as Calasag for two years. This pop-up restaurant in Baltimore City enables a passion for Filipino cuisine to connect both young chefs with their heritage. The business has grown over the years, but the two are taking it to the next level and planning a trip home, in order to learn about Filipino culinary traditions. Street food, ingredient origins, and the town of Calasag itself await the two, as they seek to understand their food culture and legacy.
