Filipino Restaurant in West Hills/Canoga Park Area?

I'm wondering if any Hounds might be able to direct me to a Filipino restaurant I passed while driving through the West Hills / Canoga Park area a few months back. I can't seem to remember what street I saw it on, and I didn't catch the name of the restaurant. I've spent a couple of hours since that day driving around trying to find the darn place, but I haven't had any luck. All I can recall is that it was a small place that said "Filipino Food" somewhere on the window.

Anyone know where the heck it is..??

I'm in the mood of a plate of pancit, and I'd like to try this place out.

By the way, if you know where it is AND you've eaten there, reply with your assesment of the place, as well as the address..

Many Thanks!

  1. The place is Nipa Hut on Sherman way, just west of Topanga Cyn. It has been hit or miss each time I'm there... But I will list the stuff that have been right on:

    Gralic Fried Chicken
    Pork Adobo
    Pancit Palabok
    Chicharron Bulaklak
    Daiing Bangus

    Eh, needs some work:

    Lechon Kawali
    Beef Caldareta
    Pancit satanghon
    Paksiw na Lechon

    Pluses, super cheap- you can really stretch your dollar; the food is piping hot, and they have a condiments (suka, patis and liver sauce)station that I totally abuse.

    Let us know what you think of the place after you eat there.

    1. re: Veggietales

      There's another place by there on Canoga right off Sherman Way. It's called ManilaTown. Pretty good, cheap food. Here's their site:

    2. You might be better off going to Pano City or Glendale for good Filipino food.

      1. There used to be a place on Winnetka just south of Saticoy, but I don't know if it's still open or not. Haven't looked at it lately.

        1. Nipa Hut is on Sherman Way, west of Topanga.
          Manila Express is on Saticoy, east of Winnetka.
          Stargazer, a Filipino-owned Asian buffet place, is on Fallbrook, north of Victory.

          1. Its New Manila Express along Winnetka corner Saticoy. I used to live by there so I would pick up food if I was too tired to cook. They have great food. The owner is really nice and accomidating. I think the have the best sisig in town.
