Dishes from the Pearl of the Orient Seas
There is a huge Filipino community in Sydney, and while there are many Filipino establishments in areas like Blacktown west of Sydney, you can't find much Filipino restaurants around. In the CBD, there is one. Only one though.

The next nearest Filipino restaurant from that one in the CBD is Pamana in Chatswood NSW. It is almost hidden at the corner of Help and Railway Streets, a short walk from the Chatswood train station and bus interchange. The effort to find it, however, will be worth it.

Dinuguan or the pork blood stew is a popular Filipino dish. Don't be thrown off by the color, it is best taken with crispy pork and rice.

Dinuguan is a savoury pork blood stew, typically with elements of the lungs, kidneys, intestines, ears, and the like. The one being served in Pamana, however, has none of these. The dinuguan is reinvented with crispy pork slices.

Bicol Express is one of the few spicy dishes in the Filipino menu

The Bicol Express is an original dish from the Bicol Region, a peninsula south of Manila in the main island of Luzon in the Philippines. Bicol Express consists mainly of coconut milk, pork, and a lot of chilli. Filipino food is usually sweet, and this is an exception.

Crispy pata - the pork knuckles that can knock you out

Crispy pata is another popular Filipino dish. It is usually pork knuckles deep fried to perfection that every bite means a-crackling! No wonder heart disease is a major killer in the Philippines.

Lumpia Shanghai - the Chinese origin of the Filipino spring roll is obvious from the sound of it. But the taste is definitely much better than spring rolls.

For more Filipino food, come to Pamana Cafe and Filipino Restaurant at the corner of Railway and Help streets in Chatswood. It is a short stroll from the train station and the bus interchange.
