Straight from the airport we had breakfast here as this is highly recommended by the husband's good friend. It was yum!! You'll have lugaw (as we call it in Filipino) or rice porridge as appetizer plus champorado as dessert. Carbs overload. We love it here....More

I will keep coming back to this place whenever I am in Chicago. They served authentic filipino breakfast. Everything in one plate with one price. Easy 5 star ratings. For taste, presentation & completeness. But wait, they also served american food.
