ATLANTA, GA — It is really difficult to find authentic traditional Filipino cuisines in Atlanta. Atlantans need to taste Filipino’s Lechon kawali, halo-halo, ube desserts, and most importantly, their lumpia. Luckily there are two Filipino restaurants currently operating in Atlanta. You can check them out below.

- Estrellita:

580 Woodward Ave SE Atlanta, GA 30312 | Wednesday - Sunday

(404) 390-3038 | Email:

Estrellita is an authentic Filipino restaurant located at Grant Park. They serve bistek, Lechon kawali, balat ng manok chicharron, lumpia, and pancit. They also have weekly specials including Filipino pork BBQ and inihaw na baboy.

“The Ube Ice Cream was beyond excellent. Creamy and colorful and made in-house, I would go back just for the ice cream. It's the best I've ever had in the USA,” said Kim D. on Yelp on her Turon with Ube ice cream order. She also recommended the balat ng Manok as it is “perfectly crispy and delicious to dip in soy sauce and vinegar”.

- Kamayan ATL:

225 Rogers St NE Atlanta, GA 30317 | 12 p.m. - 9 p.m. Wednesday - Monday

(678) 982-7647 | Email:

Kamayan ATL is a family-owned pop-up restaurant serving traditional Filipino cuisines. They pop twice a month in restaurants around Metro Atlanta. A lot of people love their ube flan cake, halo-halo, pork adobo, chicken skewers, and pork lumpia. You will need to book a table to have their food. They also open at the Van Gogh Expo at Pratt Pullman Yard as a food vendor with no tickets necessary.

“The pork was perfectly cooked. It was super soft and melt in your mouth. We had it accompanied by the green beans which had excellent flavor; just a little tinge of spice on it,” said Lily H. on Yelp.

“We got lychee juice as well which paired nicely with everything. We were too full for the ube flan cake while we were there, but we took it home. It was great, super fresh flavor. The ube pairs so well with the flan”.
