PinPin

Right after I watched Manny punch the crap out of De La Hoya, I had the urge to go eat Filipino food. My favorite Filipino restaurant in Vancouver is Pin Pin on Fraser Street.

For our celebration dinner we ordered lumpia (mini spring rolls - 5 bucks), lechon (fatty pork - 10 bucks), adobo (chicken- 10 bucks) and pancit (noodle dish - 9 bucks). which was more than enough food for two people. The lumpia was good, but this time it seemed like it spent a little too long in the deep fryer. The other dishes were solid and acted as a good remix from their Chinese neighbours. I am pretty sure I also saw Balut (fertilized chicken egg) on the menu which is a delicacy to the Filipinos but a challenge item on Fear Factor.

The service at Pin Pins was OK but fairly inattentive. They set us up with a pitcher of water so most of our needs were taken care of once the food arrived. Walking in we got the strange look that had the feeling of who are these non Filipinos in a Filipino restaurant.

Bottom line, Pin Pins offers solid food for a reasonable price. It is a great alternative when you are feeling like eating Asian food but you are tired of going to your regular Chinese spot.

Lumpia rules!!!!

hi, you may want to try Rekados Restaurant at 4063 Main Street, for another take on Filipino food. The resto if more of a bistro style, more hip, more stylized "Pinoy" food which caters to non-Filipinos. HOpe you could go there someday. Charlie is the owner/head chef.
