Halo Halo Filipino Kitchen
It wasn't widely publicized, but Halo-Halo actually edged out Pepita's Kitchen by a matter of days this past June to become the first of just two Filipino restaurants currently open on the Strip. Despite being a grab-and-go food court counter in the Grand Canal Shoppes, Halo-Halo manages to exceed expectations—most notably with the crispy-style lumpia, which comes with the traditional chicken or pork filling as well as Wagyu beef or a blend of lobster and shrimp. Other small bites, including chicken empanadas and adobo sliders are reasonably priced for the Strip. The restaurant is named after its signature dish, Halo-Halo, a dessert that stacks together fruit, flan, beans, and ice cream. If that seems like too much, try the turon, a sweet play on lumpia with banana and caramel. It works as either a snack or dessert.
