I was very excited to go to Barrio Fiesta with my Filipino friends Isabel and William. I had very little exposure to Filipino food before, so I was mentally pumped to try all the new stuff they were going to throw at me. Let me say it now, I was not dissapointed. The restaurant is on the East side of Eagle Rock Blvd in Eagle Rock. The parking is a bit tough, as the good-sized restaurant only has a small valet lot. There's plenty of street parking in the residential zones a block away -- but the downside is that you have to breathe in the incredible smell of food as you walk to the restaurant.

Service was very attentive and very friendly, the atmosphere is... well, festive, with very colorful walls and decorations. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and there was a violinist playing along to a CD, he wasn't very good and I wished they just had something else for music... because, really, I don't need to hear a violin version of "Like a Virgin" when I have hard core authentic Filipino food to keep me occupied. I will certainly be back to try more stuff, the menu is extensive and I know we barely scratched the surface. Big thanks to Isabel and WIlliam for being our guides!
