MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

You’ll need the patience of a saint to dine here as they don’t take reservations and have no phone to prove the point; but good things do come to those who wait. Once inside, the mood is appealingly boisterous; and seats are in the thick of it all—near the kitchen. The chef isn’t letting his fame go to his head and he’s still upping his game, creating many Filipino adobos and other flavor-packed dynamo dishes. Sisig arrives on a sizzling plate with chopped pork jowl and a raw egg cracked in the center for hot and creamy goodness. Then dig into kinilaw na pugita, a ceviche-style dish, followed by deep-fried apples nestled inside spring roll wrappers. There's only one dessert option on the oft-changing menu, but chances are that it will be a great treat.
