New Restaurant Opens At Annapolis Mall, Offers Traditional Filipino Food
ANNAPOLIS, MD — A new family-owned restaurant in the Westfield Annapolis mall serves traditional Filipino food in a fine-dining atmosphere.
Lasang Pinoy, located across from Chipotle, held its grand opening on June 30.
Lasang Pinoy replaced Nando's PERi-PERi, an African chicken restaurant that closed its Annapolis mall location around the new year.
A husband and wife from Prince George's County opened the 140-seat Lasang Pinoy because many Filipino restaurants lack authenticity, the Baltimore Business Journal reported.
“It's time for the world to really find Filipino cuisine and bring it to where it should be… it’s really underrated,” Co-Owner Neil Nichols, husband of Filipino-born Quiza Nichols, told the Baltimore Business Journal.
Lasang Pinoy's appetizers feature grilled meat skewers and mini rice cakes called Puto.
Main dishes run from $18.95 to $32.95.
Entrée highlights include Pancit, a rice noodle stir fry, and Lechon Belly, a stuffed pork belly. There's also a whole fried snapper fish called Piniritong Isda and Chicken Inasal, which is marinated in lemongrass, garlic, orange soda and oil.
For dessert, there's a purple yam-flavored ube ice cream and a creamy Leche Flan caramel custard served with fruits.
Brunch offers sweet grilled pork sausages called Longsilog and Tocino, a thinly sliced pork cured in sugar that's served with garlic fried rice and fried egg. Sunday brunch runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Only brunches and desserts are available during this window.
Lasang Pinoy plans to get a liquor license soon. For now, its specialty drinks are 10 juices and four smoothies.
The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The kitchen closes at 9 p.m.
The eatery is still hiring full-time cooks, bussers, food runners, servers, bartenders, hosts and dishwashers. Interested applicants should email email@example.com.
