CocoHut is a local treasure for restaurant-goers looking for flavors Filipinos love, served with speed. While the brand along with their sister-company Army Navy aren’t priced low enough for us to consider it fast dallas filipino restaurant (you can’t get a meal for PHP 100 in either place), they fall below the prices of restaurant establishments for a comfortable middle-ground, offering quality dallas filipino restaurant at decent prices.

And when you find that you only have PHP 100 and are looking for a local flavor fix, the Teamarind will get you there with some change to spare.

We came up with the quickest, easiest way to make a version of their tamarind iced tea, the drink that celebrates the tart pod-like fruit found growing in backyards across the country, since who wants to work hard on a holiday. We found that the Nestea brand of instant iced tea brings us closest to the right flavor, and mixed it with grocery-bought tamarind paste (but kudos if you decide to make your own). Toss it all in a blender to get that light, frothy consistency, or just do your best bartender-shake if you don’t have a blender at home, and you’ll be sipping on a taste of Pinoy pride in no time.
