Elvie's Turo Turo

Elvie's Turo Turo - 214 1st Avenue (Filipino)
This is the only place I know to get Baluut (fertilized egg), so I'll forgive the fact that it isn't Chinatown. Elvie's isn't fancy - just a few cafeteria tables, and a selection of food. (The name Turo Turo means Point Point--ie: point at the food, and you shall receive--and is traditionally where Filipinos go for a snack (called merendia). The two entrees I've tried so far were blah and undistinguished, but it's worth knowing if only to try the Baluut!
