Manila Sunrise Gourmet
Mesa, AZ 85202
Phoenix New Times' Description
This counter service eatery in a Mesa strip mall features a small but tight menu of traditional Filipino dishes, a deli case of desserts and snacks, and a small buffet, or turo-turo (the Filipino term for “point-point”) of daily-changing selections of Filipino fare. Featuring an abundance of pork, rice, and dishes spiked with vinegar, garlic, and soy sauce, look for items such as the noodle dish, pancit palabok, tender chicken inasal with a uniquely flavorful marinade, and the Filipino comfort dish, dinuguan, featuring fatty and crispy pork belly pieces covered in a clingy and thick sauce of pig’s blood, garlic, and vinegar. At the end of the meal, don’t miss a sweet slurp of the traditional Filipino parfait, halo-halo.
