Word on the Street (WOTS) is a Filipino-American catering company based in San Francisco. Our goal is to put a culinary twist on traditional Filipino food and show its adaptability that then invokes nostalgia for those already familiar with Filipino cuisine and also draws in newcomers with our unique offerings. Because our food is not strictly traditional, we aim to reach a wide range of customers, including those who are calorie counting, watching what they eat, but don't want to sacrifice good flavors through our Meal Prep menu!
Word on the Street recognizes the importance of supporting other local small businesses both here in the Bay Area but also local in the sense of our Filipino neighbors all the way in the Philippines. We do this through the vendors we chose to work and collaborate with and the ingredients we use.
In a time where most information is shared via social networking and digital media (which is awesome because that's how you're reading this right now!) we also value personal connections. Starting with our friends and family, we hope to bring back that type of real connection through "word of mouth," eventually rippling out into our community and yes, out in "the street," centered around our food.
