The fried chicken skin and garlic peanuts look amazing. And the prices seem pretty reasonable.

I haven't been to the Nestor area before but I think it's worth a visit to try this market out.

I've been looking for another Filipino place that offers that garlic vinegar sauce too


It's in the same parking lot with the Save A Lot food store (which is a great place to eat in) and next to Oasis Ice Cream (which is wonderful stuff) and right across the street from Baja Oyster and Sushi (which is now my favorite place for mariscos), Faye. Lots of Filipino markets (Seafood City), small restaurants (Tita's) in the Chula Vista and National City area as well as this part of San Diego (Chow King and Jollibee are chains but started in Quezon City, Philippines and serve familiar food for ex-pats)


Hi cathy - yay, you guys were able to go to Kababayan! i really like the chicken skins there!

a few doors away from oasis is "Dona's Filipino Food (I don't know if the sign still says "Hawaiian" but they don't serve Hawaiian food there at all) if you ever are in a need of a filipino food fix.

correction - crispy pata is the fried pig leg.

@faye - that dipping sauce is so easy tomake. just use coconut vinegar (can be found at seafood city; i like the 'datu puti' brand) and smashed garlic cloves. you can also kick it up by add one or two thai chilis.


The chicken skins are the perfect snack, carbs! We saw Doña's and thought about going there for a light lunch, but had eaten before driving South-next time, or the time after that. (Leg skin...? I corrected the post; just knew none of us thought it would be as interesting as the other choices and we didn't even order it).
