A Taste of the Philippines

Perfect For:LunchQuick Eats

This Filipino food stall in West Loop’s French Market has some of the best lumpia in Chicago. Their egg rolls are impressively balanced, with a savory flaky wrapper filled with a flavorful combination of moist ground pork, garlic, onions, cabbage and carrots. When dipped in their housemade sweet and sour sauce, it’s the ideal midday snack that will make you forget about the now-smushed PB&J that you tossed in your bag on your way to work. If you’re looking for a full-on meal, get their chicken adobo or bistek with tender beef chunks in a lemony soy sauce gravy. Both are delicious, and have been paid a visit by a fairy who dusted them with fragrant crunchy fried garlic bits. If you’ve saved room for dessert, then you can also grab some ube donuts to round out your meal.
