Washington Post features Pinoy resto that’s winning the mainstream
The Washington Post recently did a feature on Filipino restaurant Bistro 1521 which opened in Arlington only in July this year.
According to the article, the restaurant, which is owned by five owners who mostly belong to same family, is earning rave reviews among its patrons for serving delicious Filipino food that provides the flavors and comfort of home.
Among its bestsellers, even though it’s the most pricey item on the menu at $65, is the ihawihaw special which features grilled shrimp, pork, chicken, salted eggs and tomatoes, and reminds Pinoys of the traditional boodle fight best shared with friends and family.
Other items on the menu that are winning the hearts of Pinoys and Americans alike are the adobo, karekare and the lumpianghubad, which is especially popular among vegetarians. (ANGEL ONG)
