Hidden away in Coquitlam’s tangle of suburban shopping malls, Kulinarya feeds a steady stream of expatsÑit’s one of the only Filipino restaurants in the Tri-Cities area. Snack on a dish of garlic-laced corn nuts as you peruse a menu of traditional favourites. Sisig arrives at the table in dramatic fashion on a hot cast-iron platterÑthe minced pork and onion mixture, topped with a raw egg to stir in, sizzles to a perfect crisp. Priced at a budget-conscious $9, Kulinarya combinations available before 5:00 pm include chicken adobo or hearty beef kaldereta stew served with rice. Deep-fried banana spring rolls drizzled with caramel sate the sweet tooth. Closed Mondays.
