    How often do you go to Filipino restaurants?

    At 3.4 million Filipinos make up the 2nd largest Asian population in the US just after Chinese (3.8 million).

    Despite this number there's a lack of Filipino restaurants. How often do you guys go to a Filipino restaurant? I would think the market is big enough to support more Filipino restaurants.

    I go to Viet and Chinese restaurants at least twice a week. I'd try out Filipino but there isn't one available in my town.

    I looked on yelp and found 2 Filipino food carts.

    Here are photos that customers posted. Does the food look authentic?

    This one looks like chicken skewers, pancit, and lumpia.

    The food is authentic and they happen to be the three most popular dishes sold in Filipino restaurants abroad if I'm not mistaken.

    That's what I'm talking about. This is the real shit right here. If I'm ever in the neighborhood, definitely stopping by Captain A's.

    What drink goes well with this? I'm thinking lager or whisky.

    There are no Filipino restaurants where I live, but the last time I visited my mom, we eat at a few local spots, our tried and true (busy casual restaurants frequented by locals). But we actually ate at Vietnamese restaurants more. Living at a place without Filipino food has forced me to learn to cook, so I don't really miss it - I cook Filipino food at home. But I have no idea how to cook Vietnamese food and there's tons of Vietnamese restaurants back in my hometown that I miss (since they also don't have real Vietnamese restaurants where I live).

    What I really loved seeing is all the new Asian dessert bars popping up in San Diego. I got to visit a few, but didn't get a chance to visit Snoice, a Filipino dessert bar. There's been a growing interest in Filipino food in the US. Filipino American chefs are cooking up some wonderful modern Filipino food and not just in Hawaii. #filpinofoodmovement is real.

    That pancit and BBQ doesn't look authentic to me. That lumpia is questionable as well.
