Lubbock is getting another Filipino restaurant option in the Canyon West Shopping Center (6060 Marsha Sharp Fwy). Casa Manila Filipino Cuisine will be located near fast casual Indian food at Tikka Shack.

Opening is currently TBA but I did spot some signage when I went by last week (to eat at Tikka Shack, of course). However, interior construction appeared to be at its earliest stages so my best guess on opening would be sometime early 2019. But I'm not exactly a construction or restaurant expert.

If you've never had it, Filipino cuisine is an eclectic and delicious mix of influences from China, Indonesia and Spain, along with indigenous ingredients and preparation methods. Expect seafood, pork, spring rolls, rice based dishes and more.
