There be Filipino fried chicken at the end of the line!

If you're Filipino or married to one and you live in triangle enclosed by the 55, the 5, and the 405, then the big opening last month was that of Seafood City in Irvine. Along with it came the first outpost of Jollibee, Red Ribbon, and Valerios in the Irvine area--all of which are staples of Pinoy communities elsewhere. But there were other notable openings we wrote about, too.
