It’s easy to drive right by this Filipino banquet hall and bakery, nestled behind a gas station on Peterson and Western. Menu items meld Asian and Spanish cuisine, and most are available on party trays for the frequent events held here (and at the $10.95 Sunday brunch buffet from 11:30 AM to 3:30 PM). The baked goods include carioca, Filipino beignets; puto, a rice-flour cake; kutsinta, a brown rice cake; bibingka, a luscious cake cooked in a large banana leaf; and the house specialty, a cake made from ube, the purple yam native to the Philippines. There are also steamed buns to carry out, along with flaky empanadas filled with chicken, beef, or pork.
