Take yourself on a culinary journey to the Philippines in downtown New Westminster. I had the pleasure to taste my way through many dishes on the menu at this restaurant. My friend Jason joined me, as he is Filipino, he provided the knowledge behind the dishes.
The Sizzling beef stew with tomato sauce, served on a hot plate with red and green peppers and other vegetables; this was one of my favourite dishes.
Eggplant Omelette, such a unique dish and again another favourite, the eggplant was so tender.
Squash and string beans with coconut sauce, topped with shrimp, a very tasty dish,
Crispy milk fish, this is a type of fish from the Philippines that I hadn’t tasted before and this was a dish that I loved, it was deboned before frying. Normally it is covered with salted egg, I had that on the side.
Lumpia, a traditional Filipino dish filled with pork.
Jackfruit in coconut milk, topped with shrimp
Mackerel in coconut milk, here you get the whole Mackerel and it has many bones.
Chicken and pork adobo, this is the most popular dish in Philippine culture, here it is topped with quail eggs.
Pancit – a popular dish with noodles and meat.
Known in the Philippines as Canteen style, this restaurant serves up quick meals to go as well as a La carte plated dishes for dine-in.
