From the outside the restaurant doesn't look like much, but we had a truly wonderful experience. After being seated inside the restaurant, we realized they had patio seating outside, and we wanted to sit outside. Our server was more than accommodating, and essentially created a table for us! (Outside seating was awesome) Food and drinks came out in a timely manner, and the waitress was the best I've had in a long time. Checked on how we were doing at the right times, and made conversation that we wanted to listen to (We've all had the servers that kept on talking but we didn't want to be rude and tell them to move on). Overall, restaurant was great, staff was great, would definitely come back.

CHORI BURGER! This is definitely the best burger I've had in NYC. or maybe ever...the patty is made with beef and sausage, making it perfectly fatty. Medium rare was a little more on the rare side but that's just the way I like it. Topped with spicy banana ketchup and kewpie mayo on a delicious grilled bun...omg perfection. The bicol was also fatty but super tender, and topped with a hearty sauce. We ordered this with garlic rice - you can never go wrong with garlic rice. I'm sure the coconut rice would've been amazing too, since it'd complement the saltiness of the sauce on the bicol. We got a tamale as an appetizer, which was part of the specials for that night. It had mashed up taro & shrimp and was topped with papaya, mango, and dried pork and wrapped in a banana leaf. They said it came with glutinous sticky rice, which was the selling point for me, but it was similar to just plain white rice. I didn't love this dish but my friend did Lastly we ordered the jeepney shake, made with cheese ice cream, creamed corn, and corn flakes. I didn't really like it and it was pricey at $8. It reminded me of a watered down version of the momofuku cereal milk ice cream. The two main dishes (burger & bicol) were HUGE and was more than enough food for 3 girls. Splitting three ways makes for a very affordable, hearty, unique and delicious meal

Great tiki inspired cocktails and Filipino food. The fried fish was definitely my favorite. They also have great music playing/atmosphere.

The concept of this place is the most unique take on Filipino cuisine I've seen anywhere. High class Filipino food with a somewhat western take. As usual, my eyes were too big for my stomach and I ordered way too much...but it was totally worth it. To start we had sinigang sweetbreads, a special. This is traditionally a tamarind based soup, however somehow they were able to infuse the sourness of the tamarind into the meat and serve it as an appetizer, amazing. I also had the balut, a must for any Filipino, served piping hot. If you don't know what this is, you probably shouldn't order it, it might scare you. The waitstaff are super friendly and warn/educate you on how to eat it if you dare. For the main menu, I had the bicol express. Slow roasted pork shoulder in a spicy shrimp based sauce served with rice. The servings are super huge and its probably a given you won't be leaving hungry. All in all the experience was amazing. I'm already plotting my second visit along with what I'll order. It's probably best if you make reservations in advance. This place fills up fast we were lucky to get a table without a reservation.

Filipino cuisine and tropical cocktails. The Bicol Express was really tasty: slow-roasted pork shoulder, a sweet and salty bagoong (fish) sauce, pickled chilies and baby bok choy. Vibe is cool but food is a bit pricey for what it is.

Kamayan Night, expect to drop down at least $60 in tax, tips, and drinks, AT LEAST. Do not be a germaphobe, you will be eating with you hands and with your fellow friends. Make a reservation about a month in advanced and come on time. They will give you about 2 hours to eat until they start giving you a friendly reminder to hurry up and eat your food so they can start setting up for next reservation. Food will be spread on bamboo leaves, our group had chicken, pork belly, sausages, eggplant, bokchoy and rice. Surprisingly the rice was super flavorfull after being on the bottom of everything and soaked up all the drippings and flavor from the meats. Waiter was super nice, honest and down to earth. In the end, our party of 10 only had two bowls of the shaved ice Halo to share between everyone. Our party seriously thought at we should at the very least one bowl for every two person to share. With the money we were paying, we expected to at least have more bowls of dessert among everyone. Great experience, would I pay $60+ again to eat with my hands? No, just give me a knife and fork and put food on a plate so I can feel civilized and be evolved.

The Chori Burger is a MUST but if you want to try some real authentic Filipino food, get lumpia, longganisa, and chicharon bulaklak. Wash it down with some Kalamansi water/seltzer. And don't forget to scream, BALUUUUUUT!!!!

I understand we're in NYC for the price but the taste matters. I ordered bulalo and it was not that I expected. The soup was NOT really made of REAL BEEF BROTH but ARTIFICIAL BEEF BROTH like KNORR BROTH CUBES. I called this as "Bulalo ng mayaman" (Bulallo for the rich). Another one is the soup was not really hot as fire, I believe they re-heated it using just a microwave. We've waited for about 30minutes to an hour including finding seats and table just for 3. They should serve soup based food very hot especially on the winter season. When you go to the Philippines, try Bulalo in Tagaytay, City particular in Leslie's. In there, you will taste, sip the REAL BEEF SOUP OF BULALO naturally without requesting for bone marrow as additional amount. If I could rate this as zero star or negative, I would rate this as that. Really disappointed.
