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.
