Casa Filipina Bakeshop

Since 2006, Casa Filipina owners Tony and Tess Menendez have been serving traditional Filipino food from this cozy West Valley restaurant. And though the savory offerings, including pancit bihon guisado, chicken adobo, and lechon kawali will satisfy your Filipino food craving, it’s the sweet side of things at which this restaurant excels. Don’t leave without a few of the plastic-wrapped ensaymadas; these rolls come topped with sugar, butter, and shredded cheese and make an excellent breakfast or mid-afternoon snack. The bakery case also offers Filipino rolls called pan de sal, Filipino-Chinese buns called siopao, and a decent selection of American desserts.
