  • Getting your car washed is normally a bit of a chore,

  • but here in Northridge people are getting more car washes than necessary.

  • And that's because of something delicious lurking inside.

  • They always say, "What? Inside a car wash? How come? What happened? How did you get here?"

  • It's really funny because nobody would think that we are here.

  • I'm Lilian, and I'm the owner of Lilian's Bread & Sweets.

  • And we're located inside a car wash.

  • Lilian opened her restaurant in the car wash for one simple reason.

  • She knew that being located in a car wash would provide foot traffic and some new clients.

  • When you walk into Cruiser's, you are confronted by the smells of Little Tree air fresheners, steering wheel covers, and other car cleaning paraphernalia,

  • but you are also confronted with the smell of home-cooked Filipino food.

  • Filipino food is simple but delicious.

  • We eat a lot of pork, chicken, and beef and rice of course.

  • We cannot eat our food without rice.

  • We are famous for our halo-halo.

  • Our halo-halo, they always say, is the best in the west.

  • It is to die for.

  • As someone who ate three halo-halos in 24 hours, I can attest, it's really great.

  • Filipino food tends to be overlooked internationally, but it's gearing up to be the next big thing in the culinary world.

  • On average in a day, we sell about 300 meals.

  • Cooking is really a passion for me, yeah.

  • Because if you are not passionate with what you're doing, then you won't be able to succeed.

  • I'm really so grateful and thankful that I have my team because without them, I am nothing.

  • I think that's my secret.

  • So the next time you treat yourself to a car wash, you can splurge on more than just a pine-scented air freshener.

  • You can splurge on that empanada-scented plate of Filipino food, guaranteed to make your car smell better than a little air freshener ever could.
