Looking for Filipino Food in Brisbane?
Best Friends, Kainan sa Valley is an offshoot restaurant outlet of the popular Best Friends Philippine and Asian Food Store, these may be the reason, aside from the easy accessibility, that the place is has become one of more popular eating place of Filipinos in Brisbane. The place is a “Turo Turo” style eatery on a food court set-up, the place is noticeably clean despite the fact that McWhirters Centre is an old shopping center. I was only able to try their Dinuguan and Laing a personal favorite but looking at the food selections, the food are indeed visually appealing and it will definitely make any Pinoy that primarily go to shop for Pinoy goodies hungry. They do also have a large selection of dessert and other Pinoy native delicacies to try.
Adjacent is Café de Manila the coffee shop outlet of Best Friends which offers bakery products and Pinoy baked goodies and Pinoy cakes. It is an alternative option for someone who may not be hungry for a full Pinoy meal, and prefer a piece of Pinoy cake and a cup of coffee.
For the record this is not a paid advertisement, Overseas Pinoy Cooking do not do paid post.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs. Bon de Chavez for giving me permission to take pictures which were used on this post.
