Located just down the road from Knott’s Berry Farm, MFK is a modern, order-at-the-counter Filipino restaurant and your best bet for lunch on a stretch largely dominated by chains. The menu is small, with only a handful of different bowls and two “small bites,” but it still covers an impressive amount of ground. With minced crispy pork, fried egg, and lemon aioli, the sisig isn’t a traditional version by any means, but it is a tremendous one and needs to be ordered every time you come to MFK. From there, round out your meal with some pork lumpia, bistek tagalog (marinated beefsteak), and some “purple drank” (an horchata/ube combo beverage), and you’ve got yourself the best lunch in the neighborhood.
