As a Filipino myself, I just want to thank you for highlighting our culture! Jax actually has the largest Filipino population in the state of Florida.

Wish I could hit more of these up, but I have celiac, too. I can only eat specific soy sauces, and everyone seems to use Kikkoman which I can't do. :'(

Great article with a nice mix of brick and mortars, food trucks, and hole in the walls.

Limiting the list to 10 was bound to squeeze out some personal favorites of residents but one I'll mention is BBQ Sticks, a hard to find hole in the wall at the back of Pete's Bar in Beaches Town Center that many may not realize serves Filipino food. Many years back it used to operate late into the night to accommodate the bar crowd but the food is legit and they even serve breakfast during the day.

And for future articles try to show some love to the area's Vietnamese and Indian communities (just wish Jacksonville had more Korean barbecue places to warrant an article  ;))

^ Ethiopian restaurants could be a good subject too!  There aren't many, but I'm glad they're around.

You know VisitJacksonville could try to market our diversity with some kind of incentive/award program for exploring the diverse cuisines the area has to offer like with that ale trail passport thing they did for the city's brewpubs. I can't think of many cities our size that would have a passport program like that and can authentically stamp Guam like Jacksonville could!

Forgot Bar-B-Q Sticks in Neptune Beach right by Lemon Bar and Pete's.  It's so frequently closed when I try to go there, but was open when I went this weekend for the first time.  Quite good, quite good.  It's set up like a permanent food truck (food shack) with outdoor seating.
