This is a great place to go for traditional Filipino food. As the joke in my family goes, all of our family recipes are actually directions to places like this. We get to have our traditional 'home cooked' foods without all the work. (They also do Catering. ) It is also a good stop for supplies for when we do want to make it ourselves as it is primarily a store. If there is something specific you want, you should order in advance off of the catering menu or get there early. Especially on the weekends. A stop on the way home from work for dinner will leave you with a minimal amount of choices. You should go in with your expectations set that this is not your average American store. Don't expect everything to be in English. This isn't a place that is for people who are not fairly familiar with the food. It is very busy and as a result, other customers can get annoyed if you take up too much time. Don't expect customizations either as items are prepared in advance as there can be quite a bit of cooking time involved. Another reviewer commented about the lack of vegetarian options from their take out counter, however that is not very common to Filipino food. If you have diet restrictions, you should check out their menu here first and look up what is in them. It will save yourself any surprises later. There is a fair amount of fish options, as well as beef and chicken.

I found the food a bit heavy on the oily side. Perhaps if they offered more vegetarian items or vegetable stews or something.

The food here is from a take-out counter at the back end of a grocery store; it's not an actual sit-down restaurant. The food is great, however. They have all your standard Filipino items like lumpia, pancit, fried fish, various stews. It may seem a bit pricy, but the food's well worth it.
