Filipino restaurants don’t often have Lumpia prepared.

 

Asado Pork Steamed Bun $2.75
The most popular bao is almost $3.
Filled with pieces of pork and chunks of fat inside soft bao.
The portion size hasn’t changed over the years
but the price is going up!

Another classic Bao favorite. The chicken is minced into a ball, very different from the Asado.

Halo Halo $7.95
Filipino shaved ice. A combination of flavors, textures.
Ube Purple Yam Ice Cream, Jackfruit, Coco String

Lumpia pretty good.

Halo Halo, good portion size. The ice in Halo Halo was a little chunky.
