You walk in and instantly are transported into any Filipina's house. Grandma, Mom, Auntie, doesn't matter.....
Binegar, soy sauce, pish sauce, garLIC, ginger, chicken, lechon, oh man, it was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. I swear I thought my grandma would walk out of the kitchen any moment. Just like a home cooked meal, literally.
AND, all the ""pood"" and even dessert was under $20 for two people including drinks and dessert. The restaurant doesn't have a lot of space, but that's ok. If you want ""hip"" and no taste for too much money, go somewhere else. If you want to be reminded of home, or experience REAL Pilipino Pood Pirst Hand ""honey"", then you'll go to Elvies.
BTW - Coyote Ugly is just up the street for those of you who want ""trendy"".
Pros: Filling, frugal, SO GOOD!
Cons: more seats, need a bigger stomach, need bigger mouth.
