Tita's Iwahan | Filipino Plaza - Stockton

Melanie Wong | May 6, 201802:05 PM    

A couple weeks ago I dropped by the newly opened Tita's Iwahan Filipino Cuisine intending to pick up dessert after dinner. It's upstairs at Filipino Plaza.

The place was packed for a meet and greet with a county supervisor candidate. The staff were focused on feeding that crowd, so I can't give much of a report.

The main set-up is turo-turo steam table of prepared food where you point to what you'd like to order.

The only dessert available at the time were these turon, 5/$3. Filled with meaty jackfruit, fried to a crackly crisp and glazed with brown sugar syrup. Very nice version, and they stayed pretty crunchy until the next morning when I had the last one for my breakfast.

Since this spot did such a good job with frying the turon, I tried to order some Shanghai lumpia. But all had been dedicated to the buffet line for the candidate meeting. So I introduced myself to the campaign staff and helped myself to one, along with a dab of sweet chili sauce. Again, greaseless and fried very well though the pork filling was not that interesting.

The items on the steam table looked appetizing enough and the two fried items I tried were pretty good. Tita's Iwahan deserves another try for the regular offerings.
