Engeline's Filipino

They have a sign in the door looking for a Filipino chef. Does that mean it's not a good time to go?

Also their sissig is listed on the menu as "pork belly with lemon and hot pepper". I thought sissig was pigs ears and snout?

Is this place still good?

Ihawan was an option but they told me we can't BYOB and they don't serve any. :(

        Looks good for the future but we got like 10 people..

      2. Tito Rad's should be the answer here, as it is for most inquiries regarding Filipino food.

          Any place have enough space for large parties and also prepare whole pigs?

            Engeline's does. I saw the whole pig on the menu and I think it was $250. Not sure about the large parties.

            And we went and the food and service were both excellent. Nice and accomodating staff.

            I would stay away from the goat. A little tough. Other than that it was all great.

            i agree that tito rad's is the best Filipino restaurant in these parts, hands down. Except that Ihawan has the best BBQ.
            I had a whole bangus stuffed and grilled at TR the other day, it was fantastic. It was a special.
            Tito Rad's Xmas time does the most whole pigs. Manny's does whole pigs and has enough room for a large party.
