My boyfriend and I came to Lasita about 2 weeks ago on a Friday evening with 4 friends. We ordered sizzlin’ pork belly sisig , pancit Kang Kong (noodles with spinach, mushrooms & garlic-calamansi sauce), chicken Inasal (whole)& pork belly lechon (full lb). ????????????
I love coming to Lasita for pork belly. Each bite is balanced with tender and juicy meat from the inside and crispy skin. The pancit (noodles) dish was also good and refreshing with the veggies and lemon. It was my first time trying the sisig. Each bite is quite flavorful from the juicy pork belly with the egg, onion, chili and lemon. The rotisserie chicken was also flavorful as it has been marinated with lemongrass, garlic, spring onion, and ginger. I also tried the calamansi juice for the first time and I really like how it wasn’t too sweet and refreshing for a warm evening.
Don't forget to also try their wines. The staff members are really nice and welcoming and they can definitely give recommendations for wine. ???? Lasita also has a nice outdoor patio dining.

Wonderful restaurant with delicious food and great staff. The environment is cozy and the decor is Filipino in roots. They take both brunch and dinner reservations off Resy but you're also able to call in. Weekend brunches are worth going to for the brunch specials and great entrees. Make sure to order the crispy pata dish if you go for dinner and ask for their wine selections.

Real rating is more like 4.3-4.5

Lechon was good juicy and fatty.

The singing chips were okay. They tasted more like shrimp chips

Sisig had really good flavors. The garlic fried rice complimented both the sisig and lechon.

Has a nice little setup and the friendly atmosphere along with an attentive staff.

Have you ever wondered what the food in heaven tastes like? The first bite of the Pork Belly Lechon at Lasita will take you there. Please allow this humble food enthusiast to try and describe the experience.

The skin has a crunch like chicharrones, the belly as tender as the finest prime rib, and in between, the fat that melts away and overwhelms the palate with the most perfect essence of pork flavor. I had to close my eyes and let the purest of food joy sensations wash over me as I took my first bite.

The atmosphere of the outdoor seating area was remarkable. The music played an important role in setting the space apart from the rest of the courtyard. It felt like an oasis of comfort and relaxation.

The staff we exceptionally kind and patient with us as it was our first visit. They encouraged us to share dishes family style which we did using the extra plates provided. My wife and I shared the lechon plate and the pork belly sisig. The sides and dipping sauces were refreshing and very necessary to reset the palate between bites of the mind-blowingly flavorfull lechon. The sisig was also amazing. This one experience elevated it into my top ten favorite foods. I highly recommend ordering the calamansi juice. The exotic citrus flavor was a joyful way to refresh the palate between bites of lechon. In conclusion... food heaven!

Fun Facts: Lasita was formerly Lasa. About six months ago they remodeled and revamped the menu to offer dishes at a lower price point. The same chef/owner an the same team runs the place.

Lasa had been featured on Buzzfeed's Worth It show pork episode featuring the lechon. Also, they said that whenever Anthony Bourdain was in town he would eat at or order catering from Lasa.

So do yourself a favor and give this place a try soon.

Such a vibe. The food, the wine, the atmosphere. Make sure you sit inside so you can be one with the art and music.

We tried so many things on the menu and it was all delicious. My favorites were the atchara, roasted squash, garlic fried rice, pork belly and ube ice cream.

Our server shared his top picks for wine (see pictures) and they were absolutely incredible with the food!

We arrived at 5:50 on a Saturday and had a four person table inside by 6:30. Reservations are not needed and I don't even know if they take them. Worth the wait.

Check out the cookbook store at the other end of the shopping center while you're there.

Parking is under the building. $10 max.

Picked up some amazing pork belly lechon with garlic fried rice to-go. Can't wait to revisit to explore more of the menu and some natural wines!

Much respect to lasita for perfecting a very modern take on filipino flavors. The dishes are all well thought out, and the flavors that i grew up with definitely shine through and does not shy away.

I'll say though that I wasn't able to place in an order ahead of time through doordash, and it was inconvenient to have to wait outside the restaurant for my take away order. I wish I knew about the toast tab order ahead option.

Had heard about this place a lot over the last year. Finally went in last night and had the pork plate with rice, picked vegetables and long beans. Beautiful food and atmosphere. Staff are super knowledgeable and set a beautiful tone. Wine selection seems to be mostly biodynamic and I loved the bottle they helped me choose. Dessert was 10/10, too. I’ll be back!

From the second we walked up to the outdoor waiting area, the team was extremely gracious. I went with my sister because we were told this was the best spot for a lechon sandwich.. We ended up getting the lechon plate and it was AMAZING. Half chicken plate pictured - (Pro tip: order extra mojo sauce and an extremely well priced natural wine)

Could be a long wait if you come around prime meal times, but worth it for really good Filipino food. The staff and servers are inviting, very courteous, and professional. I was surprised by the decor once we were able to dine inside - outside is very unassuming but indoor decor is very chic. I had the half lb. lechon entree w/ garlic rice and it was delicious. We also ordered a bottle of wine (very summery and refreshing) and the calamansi pie - very tasteful! Looking forward to coming back for future lunch dates!
