Manhattan – SoHo
45 Mercer St between Broome and Grand Sts
Manhattan, NY 10013
The simple decor-wooden tables, swooping curtains and exposed brick walls-belies the exotic Filipino fare that distinguishes this Soho spot. Baconlike strips of air-dried beef marinated in tart kalamansi, garlic and soy are served atop a bed of greens. Crisp pork spring rolls get a kick from sweet-and-sour pineapple sauce, and chicken adobo is a massive portion of dark and white meat braised in sour rice-vinegar and soy sauce. For dessert, steer toward the homemade ice creams, like banana-walnut-praline (yes, that's all one flavor).
