We lived for many years in the Philippines and were thrilled to find a nearby restaurant offering authentic and delicious Filipino dishes at reasonable prices. Entering the restaurant, we encountered a cafeteria-style arrangement of about a dozen entrees. The owner greeted us, introduced himself and asked if it was our first visit; upon learning it was, he explained all of the entrees and offered samples of whatever we wanted to try before ordering our full meals. We sampled a few, then chose five entrees to share, served with steamed white rice. We ordered Dinuguan (A Filipino stew made of pork meat cooked in pig's blood, vinegar and spices), Filipino Pork Picadillo, Chicken Adobo and Pork Adobo, and a beef stew. All fantastic. The Dinuguan was a first-time experience for us, and was husband's favorite, with the Picadillo a close second. Both adobo dishes tasted completely authentic, though we found them mild compared to others we have tried. The beef was flavorful and tender. The two of us struggled to finish everything served. Total for all: $17 plus tax and tip. Such a fortuitous find, and totally delightful experience.
