'Buko': Pop Up Restaurant
'Buko' means young coconut in Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines. As a young child, Mordido was likened to the coconut for having three cowlicks, similar to the Buko's three dots. Just as the Buko, he was headstrong and very stubborn. Today, this stubbornness translates into his persistence to defy the status quo and to constantly push boundaries in cuisine.

What and Where is Buko?
Buko is a pop-up restaurant, we do not have a fixed premises. It is our goal to take a small team of chefs lead by Mordido to showcase our food in existing establishments around Auckland, New Zealand, and eventually, the world. Our menus will utilise the very best of what the area has to offer, paying respects to traditional and modern techniques and flavour combinations, with a special nod to Mordido's upbringing and ongoing inspirations.
