It's technically only the third day of the holiday season, but already dinner parties and reunions are filling up the last page of our calendar. One of the most sought-after events this month? A pop-up by The Moment Group and Aaron Isip. Originally slated for a four-day December 7 to 10 run, seats were booked so fast that the organizers had to extend until December 11.

Isip is a Filipino chef based in France. He heads the kitchen of Parisian eatery Dix-Huit and, in 2015, was awarded the prestigious Trophée Espoir of Ile de France by Gault & Millau. He's been noted for his flawless French techniques, Southeast Asian and Latin influences, and Filipino-rooted flavors. 

His pop-up will be held at The Moment Group's recently opened Test Kitchen, located right below their headquarters, the Moplex. 

Here's a mouthwatering glimpse of what to expect from the exciting collaboration of the country's most prolific restaurant group and the acclaimed international chef:
