Dine LBC in Long Beach is expanding beyond its annual restaurant week event beginning in August by connecting diners and chefs for exclusive monthly pop-up style events.

The first two of the Dine LBC pop-up events are scheduled for August 5 and August 6 ina currently undisclosed downtown Long Beach location.

Garlic Rice

Long Beach Chef AC Boral is first up and will be offering a family-style brunch both days titled RICE & SHINEfeaturing Filipino family favorites with a contemporary twist.


The brunch menu is eight courses and includes: Halo Halo Parfait with mango yogurt, pili nut granola, melon and crispy rice, Bagel with Ube Cream Cheese & Ensaymada Butter, Pork Sisig Chilaquiles, a Chef’s Special Entree (TBD), Garlic Rice, Tomato & Duck Egg Salad, Longanisa Scotch Egg a soft-boiled egg wrapped in Filipino breakfast sausage, coated in pinipig crispy rice and deep fried, and Auntie Rose’s Sweets for guests to take home.

Long Beach resident Chef 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.

“I’ve been doing pop-ups for a few years now in downtown LA and Venice, but haven’t hosted one in my own hometown,” said Chef Boral. “Long Beach diner’s palettes are getting more adventurous, and the pop-up concept is such a fun one that I wanted to introduce RICE & SHINE here.” The RICE & SHINE brunch is $45 with an option to add bottomless Rosé Mimosas at $20.

Tickets may be purchased only on-line up to the day of the event, and the mimosa option may only be purchased when the ticket is purchased on-line. There will be no cash sales at the event. The brunch will begin at noon and seating is limited. The “secret” location in downtown Long Beach will be disclosed to diners three days prior to the event.

Future Dine LBC pop-up events will range in price and style, including everything from $45 brunches to $85 five-course ethnic meals. Pop-up dining events are expected to be held once a month, with future featured chefs announced soon. Long Beach chefs interested in hosting Dine LBC pop-up events may email info@dinelbc.com to apply.

Dine LBC  also works with owners and management of unique spaces around the city where chefs can host their events, and produces the dinners.

“The unique space represents a creative outlet for chefs and place of discovery for diners,” said Henry. “Local chefs can still pick a location of their choosing—a private home, friend’s restaurant, farm, art gallery, etc.—or they can use our network of spaces where we offer that extra layer of support and organization so they are able to focus on their food and the dining experience they want to create for guests.”
