Maybe we’re not just stroking our own egos on this blog. Apparently folks from outside the neighborhood are taking notice.
It’s no secret that the Foster-Powell neighborhood is becoming a culinary wonderland, and today’s deal makes it worth putting FoPo on your destination list. Head to Tambayan Filipino Cuisine, where $8 gets you $16 to spend on food and drink. This is island food cooked up like an auntie would make, set to please the palates of natives and newcomers alike. House favorites include spicy chicken adobo, bistek Tagalog — Filipino steak with soy sauce and fried onions — and yes, even Spam. Finish with the halo halo special, a dessert staple that’s a mixture of shaved ice, evaporated milk, and fruit, served with ice cream on top. This up-and-coming area may have once been known as Felony Flats, but the only crime going on these days is not getting this half-off steal.
What a great combination of tags: culinary wonderland, FoPo, up-and-coming, Felony Flats. Sounds like Foster-Powell to me.
If anybody’s been to Tambayan, feel free to leave a review.
