When Kapit Bahay Filipino Fast Food shuttered on Spring Mountain Road last year, the combination food counter and retail store had lasted as a Chinatown Plaza mainstay for almost fourteen years.
Original permits had originally named Kasumi-An as headed into 1,667-square-foot space, but Lutong Bahay is already establishing itself as a quick dining option for hard-to-find Filipino dishes, with a breakfast menu already promised to be on the way.
Sourced from “grandma’s traditional recipes” diners can place à la carte orders, or opt for combo deals featuring rice and a choice of beef, pork, chicken and vegetables.
Among the house specialties, deep-fried pork lechon kawali, spare ribs adobo, squid, deep fried milk fish, plus a collection of desserts.
Meat options include afritada chicken stew, chicken served with jack fruit and coconut milk, beef stew, barbecue pork, menudo, and beef steak prepared with onions and lemon.
Lutong Bahay, 4115 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 104, 702-901-1873. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
