Exploring Filipino Restaurants in Toronto

Although Filipinos make up a large portion of the immigrant population of Toronto, their cuisine has flown under the radar in comparison to other ethnic cuisines. Nonetheless, Filipino restaurants can be found all around Toronto, most of which serve home style Filipino food. Instead of comparing several of these, I decided to look at three restaurants of different types:Remely's - an "authentic" restaurant serving home style Filipino food; Max's - another "authentic" restaurant that is also part of a chain originating from the Philippines; and Lamesa - a "modern" Filipino restaurant. I will analyze and compare the three, in addition to exploring the communities in which they are found, to see how they may help us answer the questions posed earlier.
