Tita's Pista (Filipino)

When it comes down to good old fashion cooking I prefer authentic peasant food. I just never thought a Filipino food cart in the N. Mississippi area would be the place. Tita's Pista is ran by a hipster Filipino girl named Julia. She's really cool and good at cooking good old fashion Filipino food. And vegans, VEGANS!!! You won't have to worry about pork or chicken or any meat product. There are so many vegan options! Check out the vegan lumpia! Its a spring roll compacted with vegetables, soy meats, noodles, spices and deep fried. The Adobe Soy Chicken with rice is to die for! I just love it how it is savory with bay leaf and vinegar. I also highly recommend the almond pudding with coconut shaves. That is a dessert to treat yourself on a nice hot day. If its your first time, I recommend the $9 lunch meal, two lumpia + pancit (noodle) + a drink and its large portion! Julia is such a cool girl she will compromise things for you if you want to try little bit of everything.
