Manila Filipino Restaurant

While you hear all about Japanese and Chinese restaurants, and even Thai places to a certain extent, Filipino food is just as great. And thanks to Manila, Millington is home to some of the best Asian food in Tennessee. If you’re unfamiliar with Filipino food, don’t worry — nothing is too over the top, and if you’re good with Chinese food, you’ll feel right at home here. One of the most popular dishes here is the bistek (a Filipino-style steak). But if you’re looking to expand your horizons a bit, the Sisig is marvelous. It’s a bit sour (thanks to its lemon juice and vinegar), and with the pig’s head, this dish is a wholesome entree. For dessert, be sure you try their Halo-halo. It’s both mouthwateringly sweet and a work of art at the same time.
