MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This highly desirable Filipino restaurant brought to you by dynamic duo, Brandi and Janice Dulce, got its start as a popular pop-up. Its current brick-and-mortar space, tucked into the Temescal neighborhood, might still be small but is ingeniously designed—with whimsical black-and-white palm frond paper lining the walls and saturated pops of teal accents transmitting a relaxed, island vibe throughout the room. Be prepared to cozy up to the pretty bar while you wait for a table-a situation made infinitely more bearable with a Fresh Off the Boat cocktail, humming with rum, red bean, pandan and coconut milk. For dinner, don't miss Janice's Ribs-glossy and slow-roasted with notes of coffee, coconut beer and banana ketchup; or the delightfully crisp lumpia.
