Casa Pinoy has been on our list of places to go for a long while. Apparently, this restaurant has been in business since March 2011.
Casa Pinoy is located on Bridgeport Road, in an industrial area. From the outside, it is a very unassuming place. It’s name indicates that it’s a Filipino restaurant.
But, the sign above will let you that there are a variety of food that you can have here. I brought Arkensen and Nanzaro here merely for the variety of food that we can have. That way, everyone is happy.

We came on a Saturday afternoon. It was not busy. I guess it’s more busy during the week days when the work force around the area come out for lunch. This restaurant seats about 50.
I had a coconut juice with pulp for $2.25. It came in a large can of 500ml. It is very refreshing with mild sweetness. The boys did not order a drink because they wanted to have the $1 McDonald’s ice coffee summer deal after lunch.
I came here for their Filipino dishes. I ordered the Chicken Inasal which was recommendation by the server. This is $8.99.
It is grilled chicken marinated in coco vinegar, garlic and pepper. It is served with rice pilaf. The whole grilled chicken leg tastes better …when dip with the extra serving of vinegar dipping sauce on the side.
Arkensen ordered Fish & Chips. It is $9.99. It came with 2 pieces of halibut with french fries and coleslaw with tartar sauce dressing. The fish is crisp on the outside without a thick coating of batter. The serving of fries is huge.
Nanzaro ordered a Philly Cheese Steak for $9.99. You have a choice of fries or salad. Nanzaro opted for fries.
The sliced beef is topped with onions, red and green bell pepper, mushrooms, melted mozarella and cheddar cheese.
Nanzaro had his Philly Cheese Steak with ketchup. He said James Van Riemsdyk from the Philadephia Flyers eats this way. Nanzaro is a fan of Philadelphia Flyers besides Canucks.
The serving of fries for Arkensen and Nanzaro’s orders were so huge that both could not finish them. So, we had the leftover to go. Frankly speaking, they are not good if not eaten fresh.
