Tony's Barbecue of Alhambra
Located inside a 99 Ranch Market, Tony’s BBQ is an order-at-the-counter Filipino stall and one of our favorite quick lunch spots in Alhambra—it’s also a convenient snack spot if you’ve committed the cardinal sin of showing up to the grocery store hungry. Despite being a small operation, the menu is quite large, with dozens of different barbecued meat, rice bowls, and combination platters. We love the pork and chicken skewers, which arrive perfectly cooked in sweet marinade and come with java rice, pickled papaya, and soup. And don’t leave without a box of their bibingkinitan, miniature baked rice cakes wrapped in sweet banana leaves and filled with everything from ube to macapuno.
