Location Description:

Walk in here and prepare for weird smells and acquired tastes. Filipino food isn't well-known in South Florida, and this old-looking hole-in-the-wall, tucked way back off the causeway, isn't exactly catering to the masses. A dark dreariness pervades the establishment, which won't offer much incentive for the-not-so-brave. Even adventurous types have likely never encountered the Spanish/Asian hybridization of Filipino food, which, at Pegasus, may best be approached with the turo-turo buffet, offering a chance to sample a bit of everything. Be aware that that everything includes pork cooked in pig blood, fish with vinegar, and beef with liver paste. Since it's close to the cruise ships of Port Everglades with their mostly Filipino staff, it's frequented by folks who know a pancit guisado from a daing na bangus, and they'll be glad to offer suggestions.
