1939 12th Street, NW

Earlier this week we reported that Barkada, a New Natural Wine Bar, would be opening just off U Street:

“Barkada, a Filipino slang word meaning a group of friends…”

The first comment from Camille was:

“Nothing about this wine bar is Filipino. Absolutely NOTHING.

Interesting that they’d choose to use this word yet they don’t have anything remotely connected (socially, culturally, historically) to the country it originated from.

Wine, cheese, charcuterie, tinned fish?… none of their offerings are Filipino.”
