Feels more cool than the food is good (hidden staircase, no sign). Pass on the paella, but shoot for the chinese sausages. ps: BYOB.
This Choice Eats attendee brought Adobo & Atcharra: Pork Belly braised in soy, vinegar and garlic with pickled vegetables
Check out Kuma Inn. I think I went here many years ago and downed three giant bottles of sake. don't remember. must go back to check out -- go up flight of stairs
Asian small plates. Dishes you'll definitely want to order: Chinese sausages and the mushrooms with bamboo shoots.
Bring a bottle of wine (small cork fee) and get tons of small dishes including the Chinese sausages.
Easy to miss - go through the red doors and up the stairs! Mushrooms/bamboo was delicious, but the reason to come here is the "hidden" vibe + BYOB!!
the pork buns are recklessy great!
Go to Kuma Inn. Order the Chinese sausage with lime, and the garlic rice. Match made in heaven.
BYOB! That's all you need to know...
Don't sleep on the rice crepes and the chicken wings adobo. Get some sticky rice to ball up and dunk in the wing sauce. Eat with your hands!
In swahili... They'd serve something very different!!
BYOB, great intimate date spot. The edamame are served in some kind of unbelievable oil/dressing. The Chinese sausages and pork buns are a must. If they have the seafood salad special, try that too.
Chinese sausage is great. And comes with a HOT sauce to match.
A great twist on Filipino food. As a Filipino I've never found Filipino food to be so delicate until now. Love the fried pork belly and the pancit was nice and tart. MUST try the thai chili ice cream!
Go to Kuma Inn and get the Chinese Sausage and Garlic Rice. Amazing stuff.
Chicken adobo is really good.
Oh my goodness Chinese sausage with chili lime sauce is heavenly dish. Amazing flavors in everything. BYOB but they have beer and wine too. Yum yum yum.
The best : chinese sausages and the mushrooms with bamboo shoots
White washed filipino food. If you want something authentic filipino, this is not it.
Absolute nom. Inspired by Filipino & Thai influences, Chef King Phojanakong creates tastiness like scallops w bacon & kalamansi & lechon kawali. Go thru the unmarked door & upstairs to find this gem.
Come for the Chinese Sausage, stay for the pork buns
LOVE THIS PLACE! Everything I've had here has been fantastic! The rice crepes and the sauteed chinese sausage are my favorites. Delish! And it's byob so the bill is always so reasonable.
Chinese sausage and garlic sticky rice!!!! Yuuuummm
Meh. It's okay. Just overpriced for mediocrity
byob, $1 corkage
Two words: PORK BUNS. also, BYOB for a small corkage fee.
Tiny asian tapas restaurant - seats about 20 tops. Chinese sausage, pork buns, and coconut rice are some of my faves. Never disappoints.
the chinese sausage and the pork buns are to die for. and byob is always a blast!
Smells SO good in here
Try the Mussels With Coconut Curry and spot it on Foodspotting!
The rice crepes are great. If you need cash (cash only) there is a ATM in the Duane Reade across the street.
love this place. the chinese sausage will change your life. drunken spicy shrimp, pork buns, and the garlic rice are also musts. Do it.
Favorite place to eat in NYC and I'm not just saying that because the owner's a friend. Awesome Asian-fusion.
We were the first people to walk in and we were the last get our food. I would say, they are racist against their own race as everyone is white and I'm Filipino.
Everything is incredible
Try the Coconut And Lemongrass Panna Cotta (via @Foodspotting)
The coconut and lemongrass panna cotta was fantastic but I can't say the same for the rest: inedibly burned pork belly and overcooked octopus. I'm sure it's just very unfortunate but still... :(
Definitely stick around for dessert!
The sauce that comes with the muscles is To Die For!
Doesn't quite live up to the hype but the pork buns are a highlight.
Call in advance to ensure you have a table, I recommend the strip steak if they have it-- it has this universal grandma's homemade flavor that can't be beat.
Drunken Shrimp, Chinese Sausage and Shrimp dumplings! If you take the tuna tartar, make sure you get it before anything else, as it works more like a salad.
Get the drunken spicy shrimp.
Hard to find but well worth it. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend the tuna tartar, Chinese sausage and the garlic rice is fab. Everything was great.
Tiny, but you can find nights to go without much wait. Everything great - especially rice crepes, Chinese sausage, and tuna tartare! BYOB w/ low corkage, but cash only.
