Oriental Mart


This little underground Filipino food mart has gone beyond an addiction. I told Leila (the chef/owner) that I may need an intervention. I have walked by this place for a couple of year and sadly never stopped by to give it a try.

Okay, so I will go on the record and say that yes, it was years of insanity on my part.

Reading this menu, I was definitely sold and patiently waited for Sunday to roll around…
