Kalesa Grill Now Pinoy Fiesta

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Kalesa Grill in Anaheim, misspelling the Filipino restaurant's name as Kasela but not misrepresenting its great take on the archipelago's turo-turo buffet tradition. I visited again last weekend, only to find the dive is now named Pinoy Fiesta. Everything remains the same--layout, menu, television featuring strange Filipino shows--except the colors are now garishly pastel. Maybe to attract the Mexicans in Anaheim? If that's the case, the owners should heavily advertise their longanisa, the pork sausage with the greasiness of chorizo and the sweetness of a good piece of ham.

Pinoy Fiesta, 160 W. Lincoln Ave., Anaheim, (714) 778-1250.
