Isla Pilipina is located in a small strip mall and is easy to miss. But you should make a point of seeking it out, because the food is impressive. Order the house specials like the longanisa sausage or the mixed adobo with chicken and pork (marinated in a tasty garlic, vinegar, and black peppercorn sauce). This place is casual and good for groups. Just make sure to BYOB.
