I know that the photo looks desolate, but the joint had only just opened, and I was in a rush. You'll have to trust me when I tell you that this one of the most popular restaurants on the block, and a little slice of Filipino heaven.
The menu features outstanding sharables—check out the crunchy pork sisig and the chicken salpicado—and a few excellent options I remember from The Philippines, like the bone marrow soup. Whack the bamboo when you're done, and you'll get seven years good luck. Maybe.
