Popular LA ‘isaw’ grill Dollar Hits opens a spot in Queens, NY
Dollar Hits, a restaurant in Los Angeles popular for its isaw street food and other skewered Filipino delicacies, has opened a branch in Little Manila (Woodside), Queens, New York, the Sunnyside Postreported.
Along with skewers of pork, chicken and fish balls, the restaurant is well known for highly affordable “unusual” grilled bites of pork intestines, chicken feet (“Adidas,”) and battered quail eggs (“kwek-kwek”). Filipino breakfasts, fried snacks, and other Filipino delicacies are also available.
When Dollar Hits opened in California 9 years ago, it offered grilled skewered meats and offal for a $1.00 each, but due to higher operating costs they go for $1.50 in New York, according to the Sunnyside Post report by co-publisher Czarinna Andres.
Dollar Hits, which has two sites in Los Angeles, now has a spot on 39-04 64th Street in Woodside, Queens. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Three sisters from Pampanga, Elvie Chan, Josephine Estoesta and Nelita Deguia run the business.
