Depending on the day of the week, Baon Kainan on Alberta serves familiar Filipino dishes like chicken adobo and brunch food like pork belly tosilog with eggs and garlic rice on Sundays. But what you’re really here for are the desserts, like the wonderfully chewy ube bibingka and daily specials (announced on Instagram). They do fun twists, like braising octopus in squid ink for an adobo that turns the traditional soy-and-vinegar-based poultry dish on its head, or a croque maamsir—it's a creative take on a brunch favorite, with palabok sauce, fish sauce bacon, shrimp, and pickled fresnos.
