INFI’s Chicago Neighborhood Eats: Albany Park & Hermosa

Updated: Oct 29, 2021

Filipino food from Subo Chicago

Albany Park: Subo

Cuisine: Filipino

Filipino food has had its moments, yet still flies a bit under the radar for most foodies. Many places lack the ability to balance authenticity with a taste that pleases the general palette, but Subo is an exception. A mother and son team, Rod runs the FOH operations as his mom is in the back adding her Ilocana favor to each dish.

They only have the classics, and no matter breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can transport your stomach to the Philippines.

*Lovers of flaky adobo beware, they bring it to you with the gravy. Which is the only right choice.

Infi recommends: Chicken Adobo is a classic, but their Inihaw na Manok (Filipino chicken BBQ) is also good for any occasion.
