The Big Little Store at Gilmore

For last minute chinese take-outs or late afternoon snack, when we’re around Gilmore area, my family heads to The Big Little Store at Gilmore, big brother to Little Store on the Hill.


Big Little Store at Gilmore is where I have my “maki” (meat soup thickened with starch) fix.  I eat mine with tons of chopped garlic (I know bad breath…), a big dallop of chili sauce and a splash of black vinegar all of which are right on the table.  The blend of pungent garlic, spicy chili and sour vinegar is like a symphony of flavors on my palate.  The texture of the soup’s thick and sticky, better eat it while hot or else it’ll turn watery. The meat’s so tender, it takes little effort to chew and the chopped scallions lends a certain bite. 

My dad favors their lumpia salad which is lumpia unwrapped (less mess) and my cousin enjoys their beef noodle soup which is clear, light and gingery with thinly sliced beef and egg noodles.  Great with chopped chili sauce

Both The Big Little Store at Gilmore and Little Store on the Hill serves the same menu and attached to the stores are mini-markets for last minute grocery shopping.
