Just like home cooking! Squid guisada, lechon, babinka - yum! Get there before the lunch crowd comes to avoid long lines. There is also a mini market inside the store. They keep expanding their inventory.

I hardly give in to indulge in Filipino food because, it's hard to find a good place to eat it. But for a quick fix, this more than hits the spot. Turo, turo style. However It is not like some places that cook the life...More
