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 Seattle restaurants that serve up delicious Filipino cuisine:

Hood Famous Bakeshop

Hood Famous is guided by community building, sustainability, and education around Filipino food history and culture, and it aims to source ingredients locally. The bakery and cafe offers unique, handcrafted takes on traditional and modern sweets and baked goods.

The family-run restaurant started as a catering service and has now blossomed into a Filipino restaurant and food truck. The restaurant aims to make its customers feel at home, and you’ll be transported into a loving Filipino family room as soon as you munch down on your first bite.

Musang brings people together with its Filipinx-inspired food and experience. Here you’ll find twists and new takes on traditional dishes. The restaurant and staff are community-driven rather than chef-driven, which makes Musang a place to come sit at the table as part of something bigger than simply food.

Much like Musang, Archipelago delivers Pacific Northwest cuisine through progressive Filipino American flavors. Each week brings a new menu, meaning that you can go back every seven days and always experience something new.

Manila Sunset

The fact that Manila Sunset is a chain shouldn’t deter you from their delicious eats. With incredibly reasonably priced dishes, you’ll be able to enjoy a starter, entree, and dessert for under $15.
