Rekados Filipino Cuisine (4063 Main, 604 873-3133, no website but somebody has put up a Rekados myspace account!) is a Filipino restaurant with waiter service (something I have been whingeing :-) about for a long time!). And the wait was worth it! I really enjoyed my first visit with my Dad last night. My highlights (besides the excellent waiter service): the crispy pata (roasted pork rind with juicy meat on the inside; $9.95) and the Pancit Palabok (noodles with pork rind shavings, egg, prawns; the finest in Vancouver although I hear Cucina Manila's version is great but I have never tried it since they are always sold out; $8.95)

Had a nice chat with two of the owners (Larry who was serving and Charlie who is the chef) and found out that the restaurant has been over six years in the making! Definitely coming back for a full mini-review!
