Had a really terrific lunch here the other afternoon. I have had only a few experiences with Filipino Food and they all have been enjoyable.. However, this restaurant has gone above and beyond my perceptions.
Sisig-We started with a wonderful rendition of a classic Filipino dish..

sisig.. Parts of the pig head, mainly ears, are perfectly cooked. Then served on these sizzling hot cast iron fajita pans.. Cracked egg on top.. You sit for 5 minutes and wait for the ear mixture to brown on the cast iron pan. Then mix it and hope it browns again.. The dish tasted of a strong soy marinade.. The egg, the pork, mixed with rice.. There was something so comforting.

Beef Soup-Next up, upon the waiters suggestion, we ordered this.. The dish had a super dark and clean tasting beef broth.. Served in the soup was cabbage, bone marrow, and chunks of beef. Soup was very good and enough for three or 4 people.. The beef went well with a spicy vinegar sauce they served on the side

Crispy Pork Belly- Lastly, we ordered crispy pork belly served with a liver sauce on the side.. The pork belly was just fantastic.. Perfectly crisp, a very large portion, and the accompanying liver sauce somehow brightened and lightened the dish? How this is possible, I do not know..
As we were sitting there drinking our beers that we purchased from the Bodega next door, we watched many dishes whip out of the kitchen.. All of the people eating in there, besides our table, were Filipino.
Crispy Pata or fried pork trotter, looked amazing! As did the several of the different fried egg roll looking things..

I might not know all the ins and outs of Filipino food but, I know when something tastes good.. And here the food is really exceptional.. I have to return here some time soon!
