Family-owned Bitter Melon Asian Market and its accompanying restaurant, Filipino, are wildly popular in the Fuquay-Varina area (and beyond!) for good reason. Super-friendly owners, Angela and Joel, serve up Filipino cuisine that’s authentic and utterly delicious while offering a great selection of hard-to-find Filipino and Asian food items. Fans rave about the pancit, lumpia, lechon kawali and especially the sisig (a finely chopped pork dish, traditionally made with pig head). See what the fuss is all about—it’s a taste of Old Manilla just outside of the City of Oaks!
