Our region boasts tons of Filipinos—they’re the fourth-highest foreign-born population in the county—but oddly few Filipino restaurants. This joint on Rainier is our best, run by a chef whose food tastes authentic and full of love as Manilan home cooking. Try the pandan fried chicken, with just the right crunch and a hint of sweetness from the coconut-ginger-soy marinade. Pork dominates the Spanish-influenced menu: pork belly, pork hocks, pork chop. Plus a little oxtail. Vegans need not apply. Takeout’s huge in this dingy diner.
