A Taste of Home at Isla Filipina

Anyone would have driven by this place a hundred times and had no idea what they were missing. It is in a little strip mall (with parking lot) on Lawrence just off Western. The service is very friendly and the menu looks overwhelmingly delicious. BYOB, too, with a liquor store conveniently located next door. I mean, you can't beat that. What better place to get together and to enjoy the food most of us had been missing or had never tried! For the price, portions, and most importantly taste--I doubt you could find a better spot for Filipino fare.

      Hi-saw your comment on my halo-halo pick but could not find the comment line. My phone is still a Samsung SG3.

      I used the Samsung Note 3 but your pic looks brighter! Maybe you took it at a different angle...I think the light was behind you...great pic!

    Hey, guys! I am planning on getting there earlier to secure seating for us. It is a very small space anyway that I doubt we would miss seeing each other there but just in case, I will provide my contact info on the day of the event. If you need to contact me sooner, just leave a message / comment here. Thanks for the message, Roxanne.
