MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

If a trip to Thailand or the Philippines doesn't fit your budget, a dinner at Kaliwa is in order. Set inside the District Wharf, it's not a consolation prize; rather, it's a 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 spring peas, spaghetti-like ribbons of carrots, chicharrónes and a tangle of noodles. Thai items like pad tua faak yaow and kaeng daeng don’t just bring the spice, but also showcase each complex ingredient in its perfect harmony.
The bustling area continues to be ground zero for new construction, but this restaurant remains a culinary anchor. well-worth the whirlwind tour of delectable dishes.
