Nestled between a gentleman’s club and a vacant storefront, Tito Rad’s welcomes a steady flow of locals to home-style Filipino cooking. Muted TVs broadcasting Filipino news and tropical paintings perk up an otherwise tired dining room as the attentive staff guides novices through a multipage menu. Start with ukoy, a mound of fried bean sprouts and shrimp cut by a tangy vinegar dipping sauce laced with jalapeños. Tito Rad is famous for inihaw na panga (tuna jaw) and inihaw tuna belly, dramatically presented smoky hunks of somewhat-fishy grilled tuna, improved by the tangy, sweet, spicy sauce. Don’t overlook the other meats, especially the moist and flavorful chicken inasal or the decadent humba, braised pork lathered in a tangy black-bean sauce. Round out your meal with a pungent bitter melon dish to compliment the fatty meats and a mellow pancit (noodle) dish, the ultimate comfort food. Vegetarians beware: All the vegetable dishes include either pork or shrimp, although you can request a special order without them. Desserts are sweet but not overwhelming; Filipino staples include ube, a purple-yam cake or the delightful avocado shake.
