Synopsis

Every region in the Philippines has a cuisine unique to it, and the island of Negros is no exception. Forget your diet if you’re planning to visit—from piaya to chicken inasal to guapple pie to kinilaw, Negrosanon food is irresistible.

Namets! follows the ongoing flirtation between Jacko and Cassie, two Negrenses who grew up in Bacolod City, and whose lives revolve around food.

Trouble starts when Jacko loses his Italian restaurant, Puccini’s, to a giant cockfighting debt. The moneylender Dolpo takes control of Puccini’s and hires Cassie as a consultant for a total restaurant makeover.

Cassie re-visions Puccini’s into a place that serves traditional Negrosanon food, and we are treated to the full panorama of Negrosanon cuisine and the idiosyncrasies of Negrosanon eating. Along the way, Jacko and Cassie find time to (finally) fall in love and set aside their differences.
