My mother and grandmother taught me from an early age that making good food is important, and it is best when shared with family and friends.
I have put that sentiment into practice for over 25 years of service in the restaurant industry. My goal with Milkfish is for our guests to learn more about Filipino cuisine, which I like to call “Southeast Asian Soul Food.” I hope you find it both comforting and delicious.
Filipino food is one of the most unique new cuisines to experience in New Orleans. It represents an exciting fusion of traditional Asian and Spanish culinary influences. From the famous adobo, to the Filipino style chow mein known as pancit, to our version of the egg roll, called lumpia, the flavors are savory and distinct.
I invite you to join us for lunch or dinner and try Filipino food for yourself. Whether you are new to the cuisine or grew up eating Filipino cooking, there is something for everyone, including vegetarian and vegan alternatives for many of our dishes.
With our new, full-time location and expanded menu, Milkfish is currently the only Filipino restaurant in the great restaurant city of New Orleans. I look forward to seeing you at our new home in Mid-City, where I hope you will truly enjoy a taste of the Philippines.
