Needs to improve

I ordered a few items here both for dine-in and to-go... I should sayI was not quite impressed at all. The Kare-kare had only one small piece of beef and a huge slice of tripe and a few pieces of string beans and bokchoy which were swimming in brown sauce. I had to add peanut butter myself as the sauce was hardly peanuty at all. I also ordered Mixed Pancit noodle dish and my, it hardly contained veggies or chicken or shrimp or pork or shrimp balls at all which is what they advertise on their menu. Taste was bland and it was a bit oily. I also ordered Fresh Lumpia and had to return it as the filling tasted and smelled old and awful. I checked to see and the filling was just mostly carrots and the wrap was tough. I've tried the Fresh Lumpia in Zugba in Surrey which is just more of a stand in Hen Long supermarket a few months ago and it was a looot t better but then I live far away from them now. Then I also ordered Chicken Inasal Bacolod Style. Now, it was not really bacolod-style because it was a bit wet and burned. I lived in Bacolod for a long time and I know what is Chicken Inasal. I also ordered Chopsuey... this one is a hit and miss. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's overcooked. Also, hardly any shrimp at all. As I know, Chopsuey has to have cabbage strips and chinese bokchoy and also quail eggs. I do hope they improve the quality of their food because there are not too many restos that serve excellent Filipino cuisine. Filipinos should have at least one excellent resto that the Filipino community would be proud of this side of Metro Vancouver!

We were there this evening at Java Jazz. It was our first time to try it out after my husband craved for Filipino food... We were not disappointed at all! The owner Salve Dayao was a most gracious vivacious host who not only made us feel welcome instantly but also entertained us with her stories of their singing travelogue around the globe. And the food was excellent! Although we wanted a little bit of light to shine down on what was on our plate to better appreciate it with our eyes, our tastebuds were not disappointed at all! We were gustatorily satisfied with her version of "Crispy Pork Binagoongan" topped with a special kind of coconut sauce, sprinkled with green onions, diced tomatoes as well as cubes of slightly green mangoes--OMGoodness, just glorious! Her "Beef Oxtail Kare-Kare" and her homemade shrimp paste were such a superdelight to my culinary senses as well! It has been a while I appreciated Filipino food this good--twas so heavenly my husband and I forgot all about our rice-fast and devoured the last morsel of this delicately prepared aromatic rice.
Highly recommended! (and this does not even include the rhythms of the live jazz music played by their wonderful musicians!)
