We visited Kusina Filipina last spring before we began our blog... so it was time to go again, and this time to blog it.
The people here are so friendly and very helpful in helping you make selections of your food if you are trying something new. Most of the selection are of pork, chicken and beef, but there are shrimp fish and vegetarian selections too. It's not a big menu and it does contain some unusual items like jicama, yucca root, milkfish, jackfruit and tofu.
We remembered that last time we were here it was rather foreign tasting, the tamarind soup in particular, but we liked it, even though we had never had that before! Apparently it is a taste that grows on you.. because .remembering the flavor from the last time we enjoyed it even more.
"Happines in a Bottle!"
For dinner we ordered Pansit Bihon and Shrimp Sinigang.
The Bihin is a sort of stirfried thin hair noodle with vegetables and meat.
Geo loved it. He loves sea food, and he loves soup and this was the best of both worlds. I think he is an islander at heart.
This is also a very educational restaurant... authentic ethnic, I say. I learned that the Philippine Island have 7107 Islands of which 4000 are inhabited.
Then, for dessert we had their flan, our hostess told it it wa a Filipino "version." of flan at that! This was truely amazing... Geo called it FLANtastic, and I agree.
I think this would be a great place just to come and have desserts! They make something here called a Halo Halo... I would love to come and try that sometime. It is made with red beans, Jackfruit, shaved flavored ice and flan and the flan.. is "flantastic"... so it must be an incredicble dessert!
