Located at 9201 Livingston Rd, Fort Washington, MD 20744, Luming’s prides itself in being the area’s best Pansit Malabon & BBQ place. Here you will find a large selection of traditional filipino dishes at great prices.
Cassava Cake is one of the most popular and enjoyed Filipino delicacies or Kakanin. It is made from grated cassava (Kamoteng Kahoy) mixed with coconut milk, eggs, butter and topped with a creamy milk mixture.
Sisig is a glorious dish that is a staple “pulutan” among Filipinos. It has a unique blend of chili-pepper spice, sour vinegar and calamansi juice, and the saltiness of salt and soy sauce. Other herbs like garlic, red onion, white onion, ginger, black pepper, green bell pepper, celery, green onion leaves, kinchai, and kuchai also add to the rich bouquet of aromatic flavor.
Filipino-style boiled and deep-fried pork belly then cut into small pieces.
This place is close to my house and I did not know it existed until today. Great Filipino food and great prices.
I found myself in Fort Washington on MLK day (they were open on the holiday!), and was craving some Filipino food (comfort food for me). I’ve had Luming’s bookmarked since moving to the DMV so I was pretty excited to check it out. Luming’s is “turo-turo” style, like a lot of Filipino restaurants, which means the food is laid out in trays and you tell the person behind the counter which items you want (basically cafeteria style). You’ll find that a lot of the food choices are either fried or submerged in a broth, all of which are tasty. I chose the lechon kawali, which is deep-fried pork that is equal part meat, fat and a little skin. You eat it with a sweet gravy-like sauce and a tamarind broth that you can scoop over your rice to cut through some of the richness of the pork. It’s so delicious! I also ordered fried fish and tocino, but the lechon was so filling that I ended up bringing the other entrees home. The menu also had items that you have made to order. The restaurant is smaller, so while you can definitely order to go, I would not recommend for big groups. The restaurant is in a bungalow and feels like you are eating at a relatives house. The staff are friendly, and come check on you as you are eating to make sure you’re doing all right.
Went there for lunch while working at a nearby client. The place is cozy and the staff is very friendly. I tried the BBQ and the chicken adobo and they were very tasty. I will definitely go back for more.
I was planning a trip to the newly opened MGM at the National Harbor so I naturally searched for filipino restaurants nearby. This came up. It’s a small place but the quality of the food is fantastic! I had a combo of laing, dinuguan and rice. My dad, Mom and brother ordered their combos too. So we had a taste of 8 viands plus extra orders of fresh lumpia and quekiam. Now my mom only eats dinuguan she or members of our family cook. But I was able to convince her to taste it and for the very first time in years of eating at filipino restaurants she liked the dinuguan! She even ordered some to take home! This place is one of the best in terms of price and quality NATIONWIDE. You have to be hungry when you visit Luming’s!
It’s a small eatery where you can purchase filipino dishes and sit down to eat it…if there is space. It’s a tiny tiny place. However if you’re craving or just wanting to try authentic filipino cooking, this is the best place to visit in the DMV. My favorites are the pansit palabok and fresh lumpia, but I haven’t really had a bad dish here. They even had halo-halo during the summer. Oh, and I can’t forget the breakfast dishes served Friday, Saturday , and Sunday mornings- tapsilog, longsilog, etc. (Google if you’re not familiar). Overall love this place. As long as the quality of the food remains consistently good I will be a repeat customer.
