Authentic Filipino Cuisine

YumBunni | Apr 21, 2010 07:21 PM

Magic Wok's main menu is Chinese, and I only heard about its Filipino menu by chance (my family is Filipino and a friend of my father's asked him if he'd tried the place). Anyway, however we got there, I'm glad we tried it.

Fair Warning: When you first drive up, it looks a little iffy. That is, the neighborhood isn't great. But if you can get past that, and get to the food...

Ohhh, the food! It's AUTHENTIC FILIPINO. It had my parents telling stories about "back home." What better recommendation can I give you than that? It's like eating at your Lola's house without actually having to hop a plain back to the islands.

The service is friendly, and the prices are reasonable. I can't remember all the dishes we tried, but they got my favorite (kare-kare) just right. And for dessert there was halo-halo.

If you're in the area, and you're looking for something a little different, try the Filipino Menu at Magic Wok.
