Filipino bakery with a small buffet of meat dishes.

Restaurant Details

Tucked into a strip mall just north of Lincoln and California is this tiny Filipino buffet and bakery. Display cases are filled with gooey treats like turon, plantains wrapped in pastry and dipped in caramel; espasol, sweets made of rice flour and coconut milk; and karioka, dense, chewy rice flour balls, deep-fried and dipped in caramel. Pan de sal is a mild soft roll, and hopiang are savory round pastries filled with either mung beans or pork. Desserts include kutchinta, a kind of vanilla pudding, and bibingka, a small round cake cooked in a banana leaf and swirled with cream cheese. A turo-turo, or steam table, offers Filipino meat, chicken, and fish dishes.
