MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If a trip to Thailand or the Philippines doesn't happen to fit your budget, a dinner at Kaliwa is in order. Tucked inside the District Wharf, it's not a consolation prize—it's a true feast about as delicious as can be imagined. Chef Cathal Armstrong’s authentic and delicious Korean, Filipino, or Thai cooking is blessed with serious flavor. A classic pancit is elevated with crisp, sweet spring peas, spaghetti-like ribbons of carrots, crunchy chicharrónes, and a tangle of tender noodles. Thai items like pad tua faak yaow and kaeng daeng don’t just bring the spice, but also showcase each complex ingredient in perfect, sublime harmony. The Chef’s Progressive Menu is only a few extra dollars and well-worth the whirlwind tour of delectable dishes.
