Our first stop in LA and it was such a good choice. Authentic, albeit slightly fancy Filipino food. Food: 9 Drink: 9 Ambience: 7.5 Service: 10 Value: 8 A tad bit pricey, but the execution and presentation is spot on. The outside of this place looks unassuming, but the inside is actually very quaint and clean. Cebu Lechon: so good...crispy... More

Went in for some takeaway. Puncit and Lechon were very nice. The owner was very helpful, throwing in plenty of sauce and additional rice. All very nice to eat.

I went with two native Philippinas and food was delicious. I had the chicken curry with coconut milk - fantastic. Service was a bit weak - server would disappear for long periods and seemed to have a bit of an attitude - but food was so good - easily overlooked. Music and ambiance was nice.

My husband and I found it by accident. From the outside it doesn't look too fancy or like a proper restaurant. Once inside you are transported to a relaxing and eclectic atmosphere. My parents tried the Filipino food for the first time and they were hooked. Mum is really picky and she enjoyed every single dish served. Congratulations to the... More

Arrived here to meet some business colleagues and arrived early. Decided to start without them with empinadas and the lumpia shanghai - Both were delicious.. We also had the pork lechon kawali which was very tender, melt-in-your mouth and flavorful. We met the owner and he is a really nice guy - he spent time talking to us and checked... More

Came here today with a friend for breakfast. What can I say... Best Filipino restaurant in LA by far... The courteous warm service and cozy ambiance is awesome... I ordered the Ilocano longanisa breakfast with garlic brown rice.. Yum! We ordered the leche flan and ube halaya for dessert... Very rich in flavor... The owner is also very hands on...... More

My GF took me there just for old time sake coz I use to live around the corner. The restaurant is really cute and there was a guitar player playing Filipino songs in his guitar. The food was really good and good portions. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
