The super-friendly, family-owned Filipino restaurant Alejandro’s has a great crew in the kitchen, says grc, including chefs from the well-regarded, now defunct Barrio Fiesta. Alejandro’s, which has been open about six months, is a good place to get a range of Filipino specialties.
A West Valley secret, says Veggietales, is Nipa Hut, a fast-food joint with amazing garlic fried chicken. Give your craving a day of rest, though–they’re closed on Sundays.
At Davao Tuna Grill, you can get healthy Filipino food without all the typical grease, says Silent Android. Who knew it was possible?
Salo Salo Grill may have the most consensus as a good all-around Filipino restaurant right now. Of course, their specialty is grilled dishes, but you’ll do well with their other dishes. Veggietales warns, though, that the pancit is disappointing.
Some are happy with Max’s of Manila, for the famed fried chicken–crispy yet juicy, says Danimal n Hustler–and crispy pata. But Silent Android insists, “If you’re Filipino, you will hate Max’s in Glendale with a passion.”
