I'd recommend the rice crepes and the tofu, but the wings and the garlic shrimp were forgettable. Love that it's BYOB.
BYOB - grab some beers nearby from Top Hops and have a blast. Anything here recommended on the menu is great but if available all the skate, pork belly, and scallop dishes are fantastic. Cash only!
Rice crepes and Chinese sausage were great!
Small place, unusual collection of shareable plates. Byob. Great food.
Tita Em's Adobong Pal, Rice Crepes, Arroz Valenciana Saffron Rice & Deep Fried Pork Belly Lechon Kawali 😍
The atmosphere is trendy but really relaxed. Bring a group of close friends and share a bunch of these Asian small plates. Picky eaters beware.
Hole in the wall. And up the stairs.
You have to try the pork buns...
a cozy and cool space. Try the Chinese sausage and Byob!
Amazing hidden gem in the LES don't miss the tuna tartare and don't forget to byob!
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.
Village Voice is proud to welcome Kuma Inn to the 2014 Choice Eats food fest! http://bit.ly/1cRzdNV. Creative dishes like noodle crepes with Thai marinara sauce will definitely not bore you.
Everything is incredible
Try the Coconut And Lemongrass Panna Cotta
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.
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!!
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.
BYOB. They charge really low corkage. Around $5 for a bottle of wine.
If you like key lime pie, try the kalamansi custard tarts. It's a soft custard cream made with the kalamansi fruit, a Filipino lime.
Kuma Inn (& 50+ other eateries) will be sampling their fare at our 2013 Choice Eats tasting event on 3/19 - can't wait! http://ow.ly/h6OAc
Chicken adobo is really good.
I would go back if only for the garlic rice. Contrary to popular opinion, the pork bun would only be good if you've never tried any other pork bun in NYC. It's huge and very filling though.
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!
Rice crepes are delicious. Garlic rice okay, its exactly that. Another vote for sausage.
BYOB for a dollar a drink
Place is the jumpoff
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
food is light and delicious. chinese sausage, pork dumplings, coconut rice
I cannot get enough of the mussels in kaffir-lemongrass gravy and the Chinese sausage!!
Chinese sausage and signature tofu dish! Can't go wrong.
Get the Chinese sausage!
Chinese sausage is a must!
small Chinese plate dishes FTW!
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.
In swahili... They'd serve something very different!!
Chinese sausages - yum!
