Bautista’s Filipino Kitchen – Waikiki International Marketplace
I’ll admit, I’m no expert when it comes to Filipino food, but Bautista’s certainly gives me the impression that they’re doing it right.
Bautista’s has 3 locations on Oahu, but my many visits have been exclusively from their take-out counter located in the Waikiki International Marketplace, which is a nice convenience for the many local Filipinos who work in nearby hotels.
Clockwise: Pork Guisantes, Dinuguan, Longanisa and Pancit (Open image in new window for full-size view)
Their take-out selection includes all the favorites including Pork Adobo, Guisantes (pork & peas), Pinakbet, Longanisa (a tasty, slightly sweet sausage), Kari-kare, Lumpia, Longanisa and my favorite.. DINUGUAN!
My favorite is the Dinuguan, that brown stew located in front of the Longanisa Sausages on the right. Theirs is the “soupy” Tagalog style. Yum! You can simply point and choose (or ask about) which items you’re interested in.
Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous. Entrees are served simply with 2 scoops of white rice. You can also order items in containers ala carte.
