This small Sawtelle shop covers the entire spectrum of Fiipino food - traditional dishes, fusion creations, and even a house-made spam that tastes exactly like the one you’d find in a can, but meatier and served with a sweet, banana ketchup. Created by Barb Batiste, of the neighboring dessert shop, B Sweet, this restaurant offers everything from chicken adobo to pickles marinated in papaya radish, to a hefty pork sisig that comes drizzled in spicy mayonnaise and served over rice. It makes for the perfect lunchtime meal, or leftovers to break out in case of emergency.
