Filipino food in Woodside

I was in Queens for lunch a couple of days ago and randomly wandered into Baryo, on Roosevelt Avenue near 39th Avenue (really close to Sripraphai). They had a lunch buffet that wasn't transcendent, but decently tasty. The least gringo-ey item was a green vegetable dish that was very bitter. I liked it at first, but my palate got tired of the bitter sensation after a few bites. I also had a couple of chicken chunks with nice crunchy skin and flavor, and a barbeque pork that was fine. The rice options were white rice and fried rice; the fried rice was pleasingly subtle and non-greasy.

It's occured to me that I know little about the knot of Filipino restaurants around this section of Queens; a long time ago I ate at Ihawan and liked it, although the hours there make it difficult to plan to eat there easily (I live in Brooklyn, so Queens outings can't be too spontaneous). Any thoughts on the state of Woodside Filipino? Thanks.
