Dim sum at SizzleMe won't remind you of dim sum in Chinatown. The dining room has just one aisle, and (discounting the dessert selection) the dim sum service has just one cart, wheeled over only on request. But it's hard to beat for an inexpensive introduction ($3.50 per dish) to Pinoy, or Filipino, food. Shown in the first photo below: menudo and ampalaya, or pork stew and bitter melon.
Also: sizzling sisig ($12) chopped pork belly and pig ear grilled with chili pepper and onion (for two dollars more, turn it into tuna-belly sisig); a carnivore-friendly version of the noodle dishes known as pancit; tortang talong (not shown, $6), an especially "meaty" eggplant omelette; pinakbet ($10), a vegetable dish that, typical for the cuisine, is not purely vegetarian. The squash, okra, string beans, and bitter melon were cooked with a pork-and-shrimp paste; fried anchovies mingled throughout.
