Has anyone been to Bahay Natin on Venice in Culver City and is it any good?

      Those are called "Lumpia Shanghai" and are always filled with meat. They look like small and tightly rolled no?

      I went once toward the end of the night for them, I guess, as there were only a few items left. Got the pancit, which lacked flavor and had the chicken adobo, upon recommendation by the guy who was working. It was a bit too salty for my taste, but it may just have been an off night. Also got this banana thing that was sweet and soaked in a sugar syrup, since I thought MAYBE it would be like the plantains at Versailles. Tastes a little gingery to me, and the texture was a lot harder. I may go for takeout again (but towards the beginning of the evening lest they run out of choices)... but it's iffy
