Toronto’s restaurant scene never lacks diversity, and when it comes to Filipino cuisine, it’s not too hard to find in the city.

When describing Filipino cuisine, it’s important to recognize and understand its roots: a blend of Spanish, American, Chinese influences, and many more.

There’s a certain beauty to Filipino eats, almost a melting pot of delicious flavors from different influences. That’s what makes it unique.

From sweet and salty foods to dessert goodies, here’s a list of Portland restaurants that serve up delicious Filipino cuisine:
