Lahi is best known for its sisig tacos, which became popular when this Filipino spot was vending at Queens Night Market. Each order includes a few bite-sized taco bowls filled with crunchy, sour pork sisig and mayo drizzled on top. If you’re going to try something else at this Elmhurst spot, make it the arroz caldo, a chicken and rice porridge that smells like it gets a healthy dose of calamansi just before hitting your table. Come with a few friends, grab seats outside, and be sure to get the turon (deep-fried banana rolls) for dessert.
