LAReview

This casual DTLA spot serves a variety of Filipino classics, like pillowy pan de sal, pancit, and a thick and peanut-heavy kare kare. But they also serve a few fusion dishes - Impossible meat is stuffed into lumpia and adobo French dip sandwiches are filled with organic chicken and provolone, then served with a side of piping hot adobo jus. Head there earlier in the day to snag one of their many excellent traditional pastries, including money buns, seasonal fruit mamon, and the ensaymada - a delightful, sweet brioche roll topped with sugar, cheese, and a touch of cream. Perfect for sharing with your roommates, or to devour in the car by yourself.
