Philippine Oriental Market ("POM") -- new look. Cherrydale, Arlington

The Philippine market that has been there for a gazillion years looks like it has spiffed up, has a new sign "POM" and is advertising take-away foods.

It is next to the Cherrydale Dunkin' Donuts and across from Cherrydale Safeway.

(By the way, just near Dunkin' is a new little gift shop with new and vintage things -- including culinary serving pieces. I bought serving spoons in my old Oneida shell pattern. She has other serveware and dishes).

  1. They have always done prepared food, I think.

    A friend of mine from the Philippines who lived in Arlington and did not cook used to go there all the time for carry out food.

    1. Thanks for this tip. I go by there all the time, and had long ago written off this place based on its dusty appearance. I look forward to giving it a try.
