The American brunch experience meets Filipino hospitality and flavors at RICE & SHINE.

Filipino hospitality means that guests eat well, always leaving the table busog (full) and with even MORE food to take home. Everyone’s treated like family and becomes family.


RICE & SHINE takes traditional Filipino dishes and blends them with American brunch. We want to share the culture and history of Filipino cuisine with those who are unfamiliar while offering something fresh for those who grew up eating it. “If ya don’t know, now ya know.”


At its core, Filipino cuisine is food for the soul. The spirit behind RICE & SHINE is to pay tribute to Filipino food tradition.


RICE & SHINE is a ticketed, prix fixe event with most courses served family-style.

Long Beach resident AC Boral has been sharing his unique perspective of food with the world since 2012. From RICE & SHINE to concept menus like a Wu Tang Clan tribute dinner, AC has fed thousands across the country.

AC’s approach to food is fun, creative and delicious.. He considers breaking bread a holistic experience, taking care to think about music and energy of a meal as much as the food itself.
