Growing up in the Midwest and then Seattle, we lived for Mom's food. She cooked "kitchen sink" style; and her food was always a fusion of the American comfort foods we loved and that were handy, and also, accented with the flavors she grew up with in Zamboanga City, Philippines. That meant a lot of vinegar, soy sauce, and Spanish preparations. Nothing super fancy or experimental, just melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
Fast forward 25 years, Filipino food is on the US foodie map, and we have an 11 year old Asian speakeasy/resto serving Filipino-style, American comfort food, Knee High Stocking Co. And our newest food baby -- Jeepney Cap Hill (opened Summer 2018), the first Filipino-style American comfort food walk up window in Seattle.
Thankfully, our family twist on Filipino food is being well received: named 'Best Filipino Food in Seattle' by Yelp reviewers and covered by Eater Seattle, Visit Seattle and Capitol Hill Times.
