Opened last week, it’s supposed to be a soft open for now with the full launch next week but when we dropped in, everything was moving quickly.
EaterLA has done a writeup and I’m not going to rehash what they said. Just some quick impressions on my part.
We all got the two item combo for $15 which seems to be a better deal than the one item for $8. Portions are generous considering the Westside tax. I had the Tocino and Sisig and went with half and half rice and pansit. Combos also come with a pan de sal roll.
Overall, I thought the quality was also very good. Nothing greasy or oily. All the flavors were good but my group of Filipino friends all thought the flavors leaned towards the milder side probably to make it more accessible for mainstream tastes. There wasn’t as big of a vinegar punch, etc. on the various dishes.
However they do put out fish sauce, vinegar, banana ketchup and soy sauce at the table to allow you to punch it up as desired.
It’s a nice option to have on this side of town and would seem to fit well with their goal to have it be mainly takeout.
