'Taking on The 315' with Oompa Loompyas

Not to be confused with the adorable characters from Willy Wonka , Oompa Loompyas is an emerging spot for authenic Filipino food. Garlic fried rice, pancit, or loompya, Oompa Loompyas offers authentic Filipino dishes with a twist of other ethnic cuisines.

On this special episode of The 315, Syracuse University graduate students Bailey Arredondo and Darrell Cunningham take over the show for a look at Oompa Loompyas' authenic Philipino fusion food. They'll discuss the various items on the menu, how they get made, and the inspiration for all their hard work.
