Casual and inexpensive, this East Valley diner offers Filipino-style grilled meats and side dishes, all top-notch. House favorites include the liempo, a marinated and grilled pork belly that tastes very much like Southern pork cracklings, and a super-tender, fall-off-the-bone barbecued chicken smothered in a tangy tomato sauce. The barbecued beef is marinated overnight and has a crispy crust and a tender middle. It’s to die for. Better sides include Filipino-style macaroni salad and tangy grilled eggplant that’s served ceviche-style, cold and lightly sauced with tomato.
