Two pioneering Filipino restaurants in the New York City have made it again to Time Out’s 100 Best New York restaurants this year.
Purple Yam, a restaurant owned by couple Romy Dorotan and Amy Besa, made it on the 84th spot in the list.
Time Out highlighted the well-loved Filipino dish, chicken adobo, because of its “on-the-bone nuggets braised in a soy-vinegar mixture is simple and remarkably rich with a buttery finish”.
Why go there?
“None of the fare coming out of the kitchen – from the kare kare to the funky fermented shrimp paste – seems to be tempered to win over nonnative palates,” Time Out wrote.
Jeepney or Jeepney Filipino Gastropub, on the other hand, made it on the 98th spot.
Time featured the “kamayan” feast or more commonly known to Filipinos as “boodle fight”, where a banana-leaf-covered table is filled with food and eaten with the use of your bare hands.
Why go there?
“Filipino fare has finally received the attention it deserves because of restaurants like Jeepney, which refuse to tone down flavors for Western palates while introducing the cuisine’s wide array of dishes,” the description reads.
The restaurant is owned by Nicole Ponseca and Miguel Trinidad. This is their second restaurant and brother to Maharlika Filipino Moderno.
Aside from their kamayan feast, they also serve Filipino breakfast meals or “silog” (sinangag at itlog) meals. (Elle Sy)
