Traditional Filipino food. If you want traditional Filipino, the spots in Woodside, Queens, are better, in my opinion, but not everyone has time to travel out there. On the pricey side as well, but had to try it at least once. I really liked Maharlika's sister restaurant more, Jeepney, which is more of a Filipino-fusion spot.

A cozy restaurant in East Village that serves up Filipino cuisine with a modern twist. The food here is fairly solid across the board; the sizzling sisig is served piping up in the skillet with the typical components of chopped pork parts (that are better off unnamed), chilies, and garnishes and is topped off with a raw egg that gets cooked by all the other components. The garlic rice is a perfect pairing to almost any dish, and you can't go wrong with the lumpia either. Service is friendly and knowledgeable, so you're almost guaranteed a great meal here.

We arrived there 45 mins early and we were informed by the waiter that they open at 6pm so we waited at McDonald's coz we were really in the mood for Filipino food and was hoping that this was better than those Filipino restaurants in Queens. When we came back at 6:05pm the hostess asked us if we have a reservation when the place was empty and we were the first there ones there. So I asked if there was a private party and she said there was none and told us that we can only stay until 7:30. Uhmmm.. wow great attitude even Le Cirque would treat you better. So we went in, got seated and ordered some kare-kare, lumpia and sisig. The prices are really expensive for a restaurant of this calibre especially on the East Village. Crazy. The food sucked. I don't think someone who grew up eating Filipino food would disagree with me after they eat there. Never coming back there again. Mediocre food and bad service. Won't recommend this restaurant to friends. You're better off going to Queens even if it's "jologs" ( I do not know if that word is still used to this day... LOL!)

I'm super picky about brunch and I basically dislike 99.9% of Asian fusion restaurants but this place really does an amazing job of incorporating filipino dishes and flavors into your typical western brunch entrees. The ube waffle was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Fried chicken was cooked and seasoned to perfection. It was juicy and tender mmmmm. Can't wait to come back and try everything on the menu!!!

First-class Filipino comfort food! Everything here is very rich, definitely not diet-friendly, but this is comfort food that's not greasy-tasting. The pork belly sisig with garlic rice was a hearty appetizer with just the right amount of sauce. I wouldn't have thought to cook oxtail in peanut butter, but the sweet and savory combo works amazingly well, and the oxtail had a good balance of meat and gelatinous tendon. The chicken and waffles is a classic must have. Purple yams give the waffles a natural sweetness, and the waffles are chewy on the inside yet crispy on the outside. Perfect!

Maharlika is a fancy twist on traditional Philippine cuisine. The decor in the evening is dimly lit with candles abound. If you've had authentic Filipino food before, you might not like what's being served here. For example the Pork Adobo dish here uses spare ribs when you typically find chopped pork belly or pork chops. There are subtleties like this, but obviously if you can look past it you'll appreciate what's being served at Maharlika. One of the dishes that stood out to me, while an unconvential dish, is the Chicken and Ube Waffles. The chicken was a large, crispy batterless thigh and drum served with purplish colored waffles and a special type of sauce that was very tasty. For those more daring, try the Balut which is a whole warmed duck egg. This is not for the faint of heart. The service is good, but this restaurant is not a place that I would go out of my way for unless it was a special occasion.

Maharlika is a Filipino restaurant that serves as a really good introduction to Filipino Food. Their dishes are spot on - and this is a good place to scratch your sisig itch! Don't forget the Krispy pata! Finish off your meal with a flan. You wont regret it.
