While a decent enough list, I did get a chuckle that their very first entry (Ninong’s Pastries & Cafe Inc) moved locations a few weeks prior to this list’s publish date. Correct address is:
19524-3 Nordhoff St Northridge, CA 91324
Also thought it was interesting to see LA Rose Cafe was removed from the list in the update, but Silog in Torrance is on the list, along with Jollibee. Now, I certainly like Silog and all, but to call it “Best” or an “Essential” Filipino restaurant is a bit of a stretch, IMO, as is leaving it on the list while removing a local institution like LA Rose Cafe.
Jollibee, while certainly an easy case to be made for being “Essential,” just isn’t really very good, IMO.
Also would have liked to see a take on Gerry’s Grill in Artesia, but I’m assuming it and Max’s vie for the same “spot” on the list, with Max’s taking it.
Oh well, such are the limitations of using nice round numbers like 19 in listicles, heaven forbid we land on one with a vulgar number of restaurants like 22.
