These are the best kind of stories. Youth. Passion! Barbecue! Darren and Charlene Young moved to St. Louis from LA -- and Darren discovered a hidden passion for real, authentic barbecue. Charlene suddenly noticed that she missed the Filipino barbecue fests of her LA family and world, and so with an abundance of energy, and desire to make friends with new neighbors, they began hosting backyard Filipino barbecues. They were very popular! It morphed from backyard, to catering and on to sold-out pop-ups. Now, The Fattened Caf is a full-fledged company with its BBQ sauces and longganisa on sale online and at 67 groceries throughout the midwest. Who even knew that Filipino BBQ was a "thing"?
