Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of the Philippines, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Filipino creations with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of traditional Filipino cuisine at Quiapo! Quiapo!, with locations in Mississauga and Scarborough.
Committed to authentic homestyle cooking, Quiapo! Quiapo! arranges meals with strict adherence to recipes, ingredients, and methods from the Philippines. Arrive at the bright, clean turo-turo style dining room and observe your meal options first-hand, as you press your nose against the glass-guarded display of entrees. "Turo-turo" translates to "point-point," and it is encouraged to tell your food-scooper exactly what your belly craves. Set combos include rice and one item ($5.99–$6.99), and the rest of the menu is composed of pay-per-container helpings in small ($4.99–$6.99), medium ($7.49–$9.49), and large ($12.49–$13.99).
Aim your index finger at a mouth-tingling dish of choice—such as pork and chicken adobo, merienda of pancit, halo-halo, fried tilapia, or sisig—and receive it with the same quiet dignity one displays upon winning a Louis XVI mahogany armoire at Sotheby’s. Meals at Quiapo! Quiapo! may be taken out to enjoy at home or devoured in the restaurant in a cozy, home-away-from-home setting, far from the lingering threat of a sloth invasion.
