Filipino Retaurants

I want to try Filipino cuisine soon for the first time. Can anyone recommend a place and some good menu choices?

I've heard of Pin Pin on Fraser and Rekados on Main. What do you guys think?



Thanks!

PinPin - pretty good and decent price
Rekados - good food but expensive
Sandy's Cuisine - good food and fair price
Aling Mary's - ok food, cheap, but atmosphere is not that great
Josefinas - good food, fair price
Aling Inings - good price, ok food
Goldilocks - expensive food, ok taste

I recommend Pinpin for taste n atmoshpere and Rekados if ur going for a little more class.

some of the good ones (keep in mind most filipino foods are fatening so when eating filipino food, make sure ur not dieting) are:

-Kalderetang baka (stew Beef w/ potatoes)
-Kare Kare (ox tail in peanut butter sauce)
-Crispy Pata (crispy pork hock)
-Lechon Kawali (Roast Pork)
-Bangus (boneless milkfish)
-Sinigang (tamarind soup)
-Adobo (stew pork or chicken)
-sisig (sizzling stir fry pork or guts)

I'm gona second Princess' vote on this one. Goldilocks pretty much has the whole Filipino Bakery thing sewn up.

Don't expect it to be a great atmosphere tho. Its not bad, but its just a bakery with some chairs in a lobby. The kitchen part with the actual dishes seems a little tacked on.

I tried Josephine's on Main yesterday. Food was pretty good, although they were running out of the stuff they have in the warmers.

The only menu is the one on the wall, with no descriptions of the dishes or photos.

I guess the restaurant is aimed at filipino clientele.

Good prices. Slow service. Good food.

Pin Pin was closed due for over a week for holidays. ;(

if you're not sure what to get, find the oldest person behind the counter and ask them for recommendations -- she probably cooked everything there and will be more than happy to find something for you

if there's one thing Filipinos do almost better than anyone else - it's display genuine hospitality

Millions of flips in van and so few places to eat.
I miss the filipino foods my Inang (in law) used to make pancit, lechon, chicken adobo, I even used to eat some weird pigs brain soup when she made it.
My favorite was fried needle fish mmmmmmm comfy food memories.

^ Add Chowking and Seafood City to that. They're all OPEN at Tukwila's Southcentre Mall, a bit south of Seattle. I for one, want to go 'cause I haven't had Jollibee in a long time..

Surprised no one suggested you guys try dinuguan (DE-NU-GU-UN).

It's a pork blood stew. Yes, it doesn't sound appetizing but try it on a bed of rice before you knock it.

Also try pancit palabok. Seafood sauce on white noodles with fried garlic, sliced eggs, green onions and pork rinds on top. Squeeze fresh lemon wedge over top before you mix.

Both dishes are great at Josefine's on Main.

Ongpin does have their own, but I found theirs quite dry. Complete opposite of greasy...very crispy and crunchy, though, if that's what you're looking for.

A lot of my white friends like it before I tell them what it is.

Balut, yeah, gotta agree with you there. I'll eat the penoy (yolk) at the bottom but the actual fetus.... no thanks.

I used to hate dinuguan when I was a bit younger, but the taste grew on me. "Chocolate" pork for the win.

Goldilocks is very overrated when it comes to their hot dishes. PinPin, Cucina Manila, and Aling Ening come very close to "authentic" Filipino food.

If you want a great experience, go befriend a Filipino and get over there for dinner

Rekados doesn't taste very authentic.
Pinpin was dece.

Van needs a legit made-to-order Filipino place instead of all the shiet that's just kept in the warmers all day (turo-turo).

Also, dinuguan is nasty hahahaha. Or maybe I'm too whitewashed?

hm strange. i found ongpins completely the opposite. not crispy but more wet compared to pinpins. pinpin seems to chop their pork face/liver/whatever into tinier pieces while ongpin keeps them in pretty big pieces. pinpin still gets the vote for the best sisig in my opinion. ongpin does have better daing ng bangus though
