Cavitena in Lomita, California has a new look and new location! The South Bay Filipino restaurant is back at the Lomita Village plaza but in a bigger venue. Previously it was a small turo-turo; where one can “point” to the pre-cooked Filipino items. Their new spot is no longer turo-turo but instead is a full dine in restaurant with a bar and karaoke stage.
Many of the old Filipino favorites that were available at the location can still be ordered here. Filipino silog breakfasts which include garlic rice and two eggs were very popular then and what’s nice about the new location is they have added me even more silog dishes! My favorite is the lumpiasilog which comes with twelve of their delicious and crispy lumpia!
Breakfast is served all day but if one is looking for non-breakfast Filipino dishes; they definitely have a good variety offered. From adobo to pancit to kare kare they have it here! More rice; please :).
The new Cavitena is a great and spacious place to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner and if you’re up for it; you can even go up and sing at their new karaoke stage. It’s truly Filipino good times when there is singing :).
