Mabuhay,

My wife needs to cook me some Filipino food NOW! I need to smell, taste and enjoy her favorite foods.

We are in Birmingham, Alabama. REALLY, there are a few Filipina-American couples here, very few. We have searched the online yellow pages within a 250 mile distance, no results. Even emailed the Greater Atlanta Association of Filipino-Americans, no reply!

We got an extra large ice chest for the car and are ready to travel. Where? Got any store names or addresses or phone numbers.

The Am-Pnoy store here is very, very, small and the item are very limited. We need Filipino Food. :crying:

Thanks to all

Do you have an international store in your area? We have Global Foods and Jays International in St. Louis. That's where I find all our Jamaican foods. They have aisle after aisle of flags hanging from ceilings indicating the country(ies) represented in each aisle. Check for something like that.

You only get one trip

So make it good, make it last 'cause it all flies by so fast

We live in western Kentucky and we go to Nashville to the InterAsian Market & Deli. They have a pretty good selection so it may be worth the drive.

Check them out on the web:

Hi,

The Filipino store has moved from the original location in Atlanta. It was off Tilly Mill Rd. but now is off Holcomb Bridge Rd. It is called 'Manila Mart', and the number is: 770 451 4585.

The store is about 500 sq. feet, very clean and the owners are nice and pleasant to deal with. I think they will even ship some orders.
