    As much as I want to love Filipino food, I've never had what I consider to be a great meal (other than breakfast at Uncle Mike's), but I keep trying. Count me in. I'm really looking forward to this meal.

    I'll ask when I'm there in person in a couple days, I don't want to give erroneous info like I did with last outing. :-)

    Very good, I'll put three down as attending

    Actually, 4, if you're in too!

    I believe I was the one who posted the erroneous information last time but if you're taking the fall, a-ok by me.

    FYI, restaurant's website is up & running, menu can be viewed here: https://www.kusinademanila.com/menu

    So many choices, hoping for a good turnout, will be a great chance to try many dishes

    FYI, I had asked a friend of mine who married a Filipino & lived in the Philippines for a stint what he thought of the menu, I added his response to the existing thread in Chicago Restaurants.

    Can I be tentative and let you know as the date approaches? I just never know with work.

    yes, I've booked a larger reservation that we currently have confirmed attendees. Of course I & the restaurant would prefer to know sooner than day of.

    Hi all,

    I'm really sorry to say that I will no longer be able to make it to tomorrow night's dinner. :( An unforeseen obligation has come up and I have to be elsewhere. I was really looking forward to it and am very sorry I won't be able to make it.

    My apologies for the late cancellation.

    I am as well. With a few less folks we'll not have as much variety but c'est la vie.
