Filipino Food in Singapore

We held a Pinoy Potluck farewell dinner for a friend last Friday. As cooking has never been one of my strengths, the only way to survive hosting a dinner party was to order food from a nearby restaurant.

This involved a quick trip over to Lucky Plaza, shopping mecca for all things Filipino. Most of the Filipino food places at Lucky Plaza aren't impressive; Kabayan and others are more cafeteria-style karinderias than anything else. So I opted for GP Asian Restaurant on the fourth floor, a pricier Filipino place that also serves Thai cuisine. The P&G expatriate Filipino community hires GP to cater for unofficial functions, so I'd tried some of their food before.

The best part is, they deliver. The food arrived hot and about fifteen minutes early.

GP was a good choice. Their lumpiang shanghai got good reviews from Jill and Karen. As usual, I ordered too much food and guests brought even more, so we had lots of crispy pata and lechon manok left over for everyone to bring home.

We made sure to save plenty of space for dessert... Donna's delicious home-made turon and Mina's yummy flourless almond chocolate cake.

I don't often go out for Filipino food in Singapore, preferring to eat chicken rice, wonton noodles, or chilli crab (when in Rome...). But the next time any of us gets a craving for bagoong or daing, we're going to GP.
