"🇵🇭 Psssst .. have you heard the news? Fans of Chef @mlmanzke's Filipino dishes (adobo fried rice, arroz caldo, halo halo) have a lot to look forward to this summer when @sarisaristorela opens at the @grandcentralmarketla!! "Sari sari" means "whatever" or "variety" in Tagalog, and sari sari stores in the Philippines are equivalent to corner stores/bodegas here in the States. To read more about this new project, follow the link in our profile! Don't forget to follow @sarisaristorela to keep up with all of the updates! #SariSariStoreLA _____ #RepubliqueLA #sarisari #filipinofoodmovement #MargaritaManzke #comingsoon - 📸 of the Adobo Fried Rice by @indulgenteats"
