Getting filtered data from a tabular with Excel

Building a PowerPivot model on filtered data of a table from a SQL Database is fairly simple. In the table properties you can change the table view to query view and change the query. I haven't found a similar way when using a tabular with Excel (realtime connection).

The only option I have found so far is using the CommandText in the connection properties, but that changes my look and feel of browsing the cube. The retrieved data from the tabular is just like one plain table. This blogpost will describe the way of adjusting the .odc file in Excel and getting the data as a plain table.
