Lutong Pinoy Filipino Cuisine

$$$$
Written by

The first thing you’ll notice about Lutong Pinoy is its extensive menu - from ukoy (vegetable fritters) to sisig (they can do bangus or tofu alternatives) to chicken afritada (chicken braised in tomato sauce) and bulalo (beef marrow soup). It was opened in August 2013 by Darren Mendoza, a former software engineer, who was born and raised in Pasay City, Philippines and is a self-taught chef. The colorful banderitas that line the counter and bright green and red walls covered with photos of a jeepney and the Mayon Volcano immediately reminded me of fiestas in the Philippines. And the fiesta plate (viand of choice + pancit + rice + lumpia + shrimp crackers), at $14.99, allows you to try a bunch of different things here without spending a ton. They also serve flavored fries—a popular snack for most people growing up in the Philippines. Celebrating a birthday or a special occasion? Why not opt for a Boodle Fight(the Filipino tradition of eating food atop banana leaves with the hands)? You can have it for dine-in or takeout for $99.99 (good for three to five people). They also have a second branch at Pembroke Pines in Broward.
