Lourdes - New Filipino in Woodside

Sunnyside Rover | Apr 14, 2005 05:37 PM

Noticed this place a couple weeks ago and was finally able to try it out Tuesday night.

I was accompanied by two close friends, who first introduced me to Filipino cuisine a couple years ago at Ihawan. The place was virtually empty when we arrived around 8pm. The immediate area is a bit desolate, so it's not surprising that they weren't getting a ton of business on a Tuesday night. The space is a little fancier than the other Woodside Filipino restaurants, with an open area for dancing/karaoke.

The menu was quite long, including an extensive drink menu (the waiter convinced the only filipino among us to try the Chinese Torture (?), whose selling point was that it came with a free glass). We ordered the Beef Kalderetang, Lumpia Sariwa, Laing, and BBQ Chicken. Everything was delicious. And all three of us thought the BBQ was better than Ihawan's, quite an achievement.

I'd certainly recommend it if you're in the neighborhood. It's at the corner of 58th Street and 37th Avenue, in the industrial area of Woodside between Northern Blvd. and the LIRR.

Has anyone else checked it out yet?
