The food from this Panorama City restaurant is the equivalent of finding your old Nintendo DS in the back of your closet and proceeding to play Cooking Mama: Dinner With Friends for two hours straight: super comforting, and something we all need a little bit more of nowadays. From extra crispy pork pata to a rich and thick kare-kare that goes heavy on the peanuts, the food here is clearly inspired by the rich tradition of potlucks in Filipino home cooking - dishes that taste like they were made by a friend’s mom, or could be found laid out at a birthday party. If you don’t live in the Valley, the journey out here can be a little far, but we’d commit to that drive any day, just for a cup of their bulalo soup – a traditional dish made with beef shank, potatoes, and cabbage that’s rich, nourishing, and could probably bring you back to life after a ten-hour TikTok binge. Head to their website to place an order for takeout.
