Haven't had that food before--

We're having a going-away party for a temp co-worker (who has really amazing "handsome Japanese guy with long hair" hair, and I shall miss his hair). Going to Mang Dedoy’s, a Filipino restaurant. I've never had Filipino food, so I shall look forward to this experience!

Let us know how the food is; don't think I've ever had Filipino food either!

Turned out very tastey--but I'm having a hard time classifying it. It was very western (meat and onions, fried pork, etc). Bit of a hodge-podge.

All I know is that Baleet is the "treat with feet" and wow lookee there, I've just found my line on what I will and won't eat. 8-)

Noted. Avoid "Baleet."

Filipino food... I think I've had that once or twice.

I'd rather guessed you had! I love that icon, still--tried to make one saying "I-yeena", but it fell apart. Maybe if I used a TLK hyena it'd be easier.

Hm. I'd reccomend getting pancit and chicken or pork adobo as sort of the most basic stereotypical stuff. Possibly longanisa (sausages, especially good with garlic eggs and rice as breakfast). I think you'll probably like the stuff, but y'never know.

I did have the pork adobo, it was tastey, but I didn't get to order anything. Mr. Going Away picked everything in advance. Fantastic eggrolls, though--very narrow and crisp.

I am very curious to know where this place is! Even though I cannot eat there currently (diet and all), I have friends that are Filipino and would love to know! :)

It's near the intersection of Anderson Mill and Parmer, but we took a really complicated route and I can't locate it again. What's your diet, BTW? If I'm bringing food, I might be able to work around it.

Laird and I are trying the South Beach diet thing.

I'm also looking for diet friendly restaurants, or at least the ones that have dishes that are diet safe. Suggestions?

Hmm...well, my best eats have been Cheddars' low-carb steakburger platter, that Asian restaurant we all ate at a few weeks ago (ask them to hold the rice), any place that specializes in breakfast (omeletts are a good thing--Magnolia Cafe, The Omlettry, and Kerbey Lane) and the Plucker's club chicken salad (the bacon and dressing's a bit of a cheat). Once you get to stage two you can splurge occasionally and go to Firebowl or Pei Wei (ask for brown rice) or Olive Garden (ask for whole wheat pasta).

Shanghai River has a great bunch of low-carb chicken and vegetables. Mongolian Barbeque is PERFECT for south-beachers.
