Review | Platito

The first time I tried Filipino food was at Vanessa’s house. Vanessa is a friend I’ve known since high school. We met at a house party and although we didn’t attend the same school, I knew we would become great friends when “Anything for you” by Snow came on and we both hit the dance floor.

Vanessa is the type of friend who welcomes her friends into her family. I attended countless of bbqs and parties for a special occasion or no occasion at all. But who really needs a reason to get the family together and feast.

And feast we did.

At these parties, her moms and aunties would continuously offer plate after plate of food. Even if I declared “no more!!!”, they would give me more. It was a sign of affection.

I also remember the warmth, generosity, kindness and laughter percolating throughout the room.

And that’s the exact feeling and experience I had when trying out Platito, the newest kid on Baldwin Street in Toronto.

Me … A Very Happy Customer!

You won’t find an audacious fusion menu which is a good thing.

Platito sticks with traditional dishes including crispy and chewy lumpia (spring rolls), lechon kawali (fried pork belly with pickled papaya); pancit (glass noodles) and kare-kare (tender beef thickened with peanut sauce).

Toronto, a city with an infinite appetite, has seen trendy Asian foods like pad thai, pho and ramen.

Now it is pancit’s turn to rock our palates.
