Talk about bang for your buck. On a recent trip to San Diego, a buddy of mine recommended Tita’s for some legit Filipino food. Upon arriving, it seems like your typical turo-turo style restaurant, nothing fancy or visually stimulating. However, it became the game changer once I took my first bite. The BBQ chicken and pork here is absolutely phenomenal. It’s lathered in the delicious marinate, skewered, grilled, and charred to perfection. Easily some of the best BBQ you can get around. I’ll be daydreaming about these BBQ sticks when I’m back home in LA. Their pork adobo was also an absolute winner. The perfect tenderness of the pork and the ubiquitous adobo sauce slathered over white rice is something special. Amazing flavors for even the uninitiated.
For $7.50 you get a 2 item combo, and at most places that’s usually enough for myself. At Tita’s, a 2 item combo is enough for 2 people and you’ll have left overs. In other words, they hook it up FAT. I ended up coming back here the next day for food for the trip back. They also cater for big parties and even do the whole roast pig. Definitely check out Tita’s for some cheap delicious food that will hit you right in the dick. And no, they aren’t family of some kind.
