Arko International Food in Glendale - no it's not Armenian

Wow never thought I’d say this but Filipino mixed rice can be very tasty. Stopped by Arko International Food supermarket in Glendale for lunch yesterday. There’s a terrific prepared food section with a huge selection of traditional Filipino dishes. As far as I could tell, clientele is almost exclusively Filipino and the place was mobbed during lunch.

Pigged out on a combo plate of pork sisig, caldetera (beef stew like), a side of banana blossoms, chicharrons and lumpia. All in all pretty tasty.

2018 looks set to be the year for Filipino food in LA. Quick bump and plug for the excellent OG joint in Glendale - Arko International Food.


They have mais queso ice cream in their freezer section. Pork porchero was very good, although I think the one at Fiesta Sa Barrio might be a bit better.

Huh…did you change your mind on that flavor?

No. I never said the ice cream was good. Just that it was there.

i tried the sisig (sp?) & adobo combo today. a little pricey, but tasty.
