    This is the Momofuku of Filipino food, from a top chef runner up. Order the entire menu, especially the ribs, everything with pork, the coconut rice, and the sisig. Unlimited beers from a keg for $15.

    Ideal for groups so you can try a few different plates, since there's a few really good ones. Can't miss: pork head, pork jowl, sirloin, crispy pata. Not as memorable: duck, beef noodles, octopus.

    Sizzling Sigig, Pork Belly Adobo and Ribs are favorites, but you can't go wrong with anything in the menu.

    If they have them, the special crispy chicken wings made with coconut milk are 👌👌👌. Green papaya salad and Bun Bo Nam Bo are worth getting, and the sizzling sisig with coconut rice is a must.

    The pork belly adobo with the poached egg is a good small plate to start. Love the octopus salad with the hint of pickled jalapeño. Need to come back for the rest of the menu.

    $1 PBR 5-7p, delicious sizzling sisig, sick hip hop soundtrack. Skip the chicharron & go for the jowl -comes w/ chicharron paired perfectly w/ salty watermelon & pork cheek. Don't forget coconut rice!

    Shared the coconut rice, Kao Soi and Pork Belly Adobo with a friend and it was more than enough. Very thick, rich, spicy goodness. Can't wait to come back and try the rest of the menu.

    Eat lots of pork, marvel at the crazy flavors! Sizzling Sisig sunny-side up egg atop pile of sizzling, glistening pork head, mix together = delicious harmony. Gr8 with coconut rice. Leah Cohen rocks!

    I wasn't as blown away by The sissig (pictured w garlic rice) as reviews lead me to believe. It was tasty but fatty (as expected). The khao Soi was absolutely amazing! Drizzle it on the sissig ;)

    If you like pork and intense flavors, this is the place. Best bet is to load up on small plates. Jowls and Sprouts = tender pork jowls plus crispy spro uts. Add a spicy mushroom salad for variety

    A must for brunch. 15$ all you can drink mimosas and 15$ self serve all you can drink Yiengling! Also order family style if you're with a big group.

    Full on flavors of the Khao Soi are out of this world. Pair the lively flavors with a solid light beer and be sure to have plenty of coconut rice on hand. This place is totally, mind-blowingly, good.

    Pork sisig, pork belly adobo, and crispy pata are a few classics in the Philippines, and they did a great job putting their own twist in these signature dishes!

    YUM. Amazing Thai & Filipino fusion food. If you're with a large group, go with the Chef's special so you can try as many things as possible. The Lower East Side cocktail paired perfectly as well.

    Absolutely worth any wait. For a group of four, we did one large plate and three small plates, but could’ve done one more small. Gotta get the duck, Bun Bo Nam Bo, Pork Belly Adobo, & Sizzling Sisig.

    Filipino & South East Asian cuisine mixes with hip hop tracks at this lively restaurant. Spicy and tasty food come in large portions. Good for pre-gaming. Younger crowd.

    The sisik was delicious and so was their mango salad. Must get the garlic fried rice to top it off. It's only a bowl so you may want to order two (or more!) if there's more than two of you.

    The sizzling sisig is a must, and while it is a bit too salty like most versions of this dish tend to be, it is otherwise really well seasoned, and pairs perfectly with a side of coconut rice.

    Sizzling sisig is the way to go here. Comes out on a sizzling plate and you get to mix an egg into the dish. Delicious AND fun!

    Love this place! The ribs, coconut rice, adobo pork belly and the Khao soi are all winners. Wash it down with a Hitachino ginger beer that complements the food perfectly.

    Filipino and Thai fusion served as small plates. Interesting flavors! We highly recommend the quail wings and the crispy red curry rice. Good to go with a group and share a bunch of plates.

    Great (semi) new spot in the LES. Ambiance is chill and familiar, while food was interesting and delicious. Lamb ribs were the winner for us; spicy, intensely flavored while not being too heavy.

    Fantastic thoughtful flavors. Khao soi a must and really not a small plate as advertised. Rich and delicious. Loved the mussels with delicious pretzel-like buns. Also must have the quail adobo!

    bottomless mimosa brunch is the way to go (there's also a bottomless yuengling draft option). reservations recommended, it's small.

    If you want a meal that will make you cry with joy, get the lamb ribs. They come with tzatziki, pickled red cabbage and roti so you can make wraps. So good a lamb would eat them.

    We bring our out of town guests here quiet frequently and the pork jowl over brussel sprouts is always a favorite. I also love Chef Cohen's version of halo halo.

    Sizzling sissig is a must. All the best parts: chewy pig's ear, crunchy skin, and fatty delicious pork topped with a sunny side up egg. Devour over coconut rice.

    One of the best meals outside of Asia I've had in the US. Adding this to my go-to list of awesome, unassuming restaurants in NYC. Get the sirloin and the coconut rice.

    Try the sisig, a typical Filipino dish made with pork head. Less adventurous options include longanisa sausage or sizzling corned beef hash with garlic fried rice. Read more
