    I only know of on Filipino restaurant, Lutong Mekeni on University in St. Paul (not that I have searched for others). I haven't tried it yet. I think it's only open on Saturdays. I was actually hoping your post was a review!

      There's mention of a Sunday buffet at the Pines Market in Circle Pines, but I haven't had reason to go that far north on a Sunday.

        I just found the Pinoy Brunch in Circle Pines Facebook page and it says no brunch today (June 9), but I think this might be one of the only Pinoy food places in the cities...unless it comes out of your own kitchen! Some pancit and adobo....yum!....OH WAIT...I think I saw some adobo at an Asian grocery store deli...I'll try to remember where and I'll keep looking!

          It was Subo, but that went out of business quite some time ago.

          If you are into the food trucks, check out Scratch Food Truck. The chef, Geoff King, is Filipino and the truck usually has food through that prism. I think Geoff also cooked at Subo too.

            there is a great pix of a roasted pig on their facebook page. Is this served at the restaurant, or just a catering option?

              You'd have to email them as ask. I really don't know. I haven't seen the Scratch truck in a while so not sure if it is still in business or if they are just focused on catering. But when it comes to that type of cuisine, this was the only one that I could think of in this town.
