Filipino Food in New Orleans?

I have been craving some good old-fashioned Filipino food... any restaurants within the vicinity?

I have done some research on the web and found an old Gambit article regarding an Ely’s in the quarters that served Filipino food. Is it still around post-Katrina? If so, how’s the food?

Thanks in advance for any information!

  1. I don't think it was around pre-K. How old was the article?

    The only option I know for Filipino food is Asian Pacific Cafe, and that's pretty limited. It's mainly a sushi restaurant, but I think the owners are Filipino. Last time I was there, they had a few Filipino dishes (adobo and one other). This was a few months back. They might have expanded the menu by this point.

      2002. A girl could always hope.

      Is the food any good? Pricey? Thanks for the info.

    2. I thought the adobo was tasty. Can't remember the other dish. I'd have to dig out the menu.

      I would call it a good neighborhood sushi place otherwise. I wouldn't cross town for it.

        Ewwww. I don't agree. My dining companion was Filipino and her comments are not printable. We were both disappointed. The Lumpia were greasy, greasy. For contemporary American sushi, okay.

          Too bad. I was there almost 8 months ago. No doubt things have changed.
