Venue Info

Since 1991, people have been driving from all over the city to Zarlitos for a taste of the restaurant’s award-winning poke. Zarlitos specializes in traditional Filipino cuisine but has a decided penchant for Hawaiian-style poke dressed in the sauce of your choosing (choose the spicy garlic). Also on offer is a long list of traditional Filipino proteins (like sisig, longanisa, and spam) that can be enjoyed in taco, burrito, torta, or poutine form, as well as globally influenced dishes like pork or chicken adobo enchiladas and fried rice with eggs over easy.
