LASA by Lamesa opened in September 2016 and is the sister restaurant to Lamesa Filipino Kitchen. Our mission is to share Filipino food with the mainstream.
Imagine a native Malay cook with a Chinese roommate being taught by a Spanish Chef with a love affair for everything American and you will begin to understand what Filipino food is all about.
Filipino food offers a bold combination of sweet, sour, and salty flavours. There is often an aspect of counterpoint in each dish where contrasting flavours such as sweet and salty are paired together to create delicious combinations. Filipino cuisine has had many cultural influences throughout its development. Chinese traders, Spanish settlers, and American soldiers have all contributed to the cuisine.
At LASA we serve up classic Filipino dishes just the way lola used to make. Our food is available for dine-in, takeout, and delivery.
We now offer large party orders perfect for your next fam jam or get together.
The menu is designed for parties of 10-12 people. Many of these dishes require up to 48 hours of preparation time so please allow as much notice as possible. As always we will do whatever we can to get you what you need. For orders of $100 or more we require a deposit of 25% payable by credit card over the phone or in store by cash, debit, or credit.
To place an order please call us at 647-343-1110 or email us at email@example.com
