is for FILIPINO, a de­li­cious con­uence of Span­ish, Chi­nese, Malay, West­ern and Indige­nous in­uences that’s Van­cou­ver’s next hot culi­nary ticket. Bao Down is your easy-ac­cess gate­way, fea­tur­ing steamed buns and tacos laden with Filipino in­gre­di­ents; Pin­pin and Ku­mare both bring the feast­ing in tra­di­tional fam­ily style. Choice eats: crispy papa and siz­zling sisig for pork lovers, bis­tek Ta­ga­log with a cala­mansi for beef lovers, and chicken inasal. Lit­tle Ong­pin serves, ar­guably, the Lower Main­land’s best halo halo (shaved ice and con­densed milk), and new­comer Flip­side Desserts ups the sweet quo­tient with uniquely Filipino ­avours. Pro tip: hit up Aling Mary for pan­desal. If you time it just right, these Filipino rolls will be fresh out of the oven, warm and ­u„y with just a hint of sweet­ness.— Joie Al­varo Kent
