WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE STREET LOCATION AND WHY?
We would have to say our favorite location is Starbucks HQ. Since we first started in this location, we have had amazing experiences!

The most popular item we have on the menu would be our appetizer, Pork Lumpia (Egg Rolls), then the Inihaw (Grilled Pork Spare Ribs). This plate is always served with steamed white rice and Pansit, which is a noodle dish cooked with veggies and chicken broth.
