Local friendly take-out spot with fried & popcorn chicken. The real surprise is the delicious Filipino dishes like pancit (stir-fried rice noodles with chicken, cabbage and carrots), spring rolls, and halo halo.

Popular and homely Filipino restaurant - a real experience. Relaxed and friendly, and the style of eating is with one's hands. Banana leaves go directly on top of the table, and then a layer of sticky rice is doled out and covered with an array of items, mostly barbequed fish and meat. On the side there are spring rolls, plantains, okra, mango salad, and cantaloupe.
