  • Goldilocks: a Filipino's delight

    Any good Filipino is very familiar with Goldilocks :) It is a staple part of his or her vocabulary.

    This one is special, because it's the only one in this part of North America. This is a Filipino-based franchised bakery/restaurant specializing in - you guessed it - Filipino food. There are stores all over the Philippines and all over California...but this is the only one in the great Northwest.

    Maybe it's pathetic that I come here all the way from Seattle just to get some decent Filipino sweets.

    Favorite Dish: baked goods:

    pan de sal - traditional filipino bread
    ensaymada - sweet bread with fillings inside
    siopao - meat filled bun
    cassava bibingka - amazing dessert, made from yucca and macapuno
    leche flan - think of flan, just a bit more solid

    hot foods:

    lumpia (fresh or fried)
    chicken adobo - typical dish
    sotanghon guisado
    dinuguan - for the more adventurous
    bangus

    You wonder why so many Filipinos get diabetes? Come to delicious Goldilocks and you'll see why. Gaze in awe at the rows of sweet cakes, pastries, and filipino desserts. Open a can of condensed milk, mix with 3 cups of sugar, and 2 sticks of butter. What have you got? None other but one of these oh-so-delicious yet artery-clogging delicacies!!

    Favorite Dish: desserts:

    cassava
    macapuno roll
    leche flan

    Goldilocks Filipino Restaurant & Store

    A visit to Goldilocks is both a culinary AND visual treat! They have a well earned reputation for offering some of the most elaborately adorned cakes available in Vancouver!

    Favorite Dish: I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the story with two VT members of Filipino ancestry. They gave me a detailed description of each & every delicacy.

    Definitely a Yummy place to go!
