Filipino Breakfast served Anytime in NoVa
At Seven Corners, Falls Church, in the Medical Arts Building on Sleepy Hollow Rd., there is an old diner called the Fairfax Inn. They started serving Filipino food a few months back, and now they have two menus, one American, and the other is Filipino Breakfast served anytime. So what does that consist of?
In my case I ordered the Daing Na Bangus (marinated milk fish). It came with two eggs, wedge of tomato, slice of canteloupe, and a small bowl of pickled ginger. All for $7. It was a good meal, maybe I didn't enjoy it as much as the same dish at Karaoke Idol, but the food was well prepared, fresh, and tasty. The manager recommended the marinated beef for the next time, and I will definitely go back.
I'm almost positive they do not. And I can't imagine where they would get a supply in this country.
They actually sell Balut (aka Hot Vin Lon) in Eden center at the supermarket. I was even at the Grand Mart down the road onetime and the big sale on eggs turned out to be duck or chicken fetuses instead.
Coincidentally, if you're interested in Filipino goods, a pinoy market is profiled today in the W.Post.
Wow, that surprises me. I'll have to look out for it on menus.
Yes, I saw that article. There is also a very discreet market on Lee Hwy in Arlington that I've passed by a million times without noticing, until someone mentioned it on Chowhound.
