At Casa Manila, named the best Filipino restaurant in blogTO.com's Best of Toronto, the scents of garlic, coconut milk, and tamarind slip among rustling walls of potted plants. Grass-thatched windows and bamboo shoots hint at the fistfuls of veggies that accent braised meats, grilled pork belly, and sizzling garlic shrimp. The dishes all display the exotic style of Filipino fare, which combines Malay, Spanish, Southeast Asian, and Chinese influences. Warm-hued lights, draped in fabric, illuminate the plates, providing a cozy, tropical ambiance.
