Filipino-style fried rice to go, please!

By Mei Qi

I made a lot of memories when I visited the Philippines in 2011, but one thing that really stuck with me was how garlic fried rice was everywhere – and how tasty it was. Which is why I was so excited when I saw this new Filipino restaurant open in my neighborhood in the Heights featuring a tony of tasty food options, including garlic fried rice. I'm there!


Well, Be More Pacific did not disappoint me on that amazing fried rice front. They got fancier, too. Can I have an order of the S.C.C.L.B.F.R. please! What on earth is that? It’s the spicy coconut curry lime bacon fried rice and it’s worth memorizing so you can order it and thank me. Of course, if you want to go with something a little simpler, get the silog: your choice of meat (I recommend the homemade spam) served over garlic rice with a fried egg. Hearty and delicious and perfect for takeout!

(And don't forget to treat yourself to some caramel flan for dessert!)
