New York, NY 10002
Village Voice's Description
Improbably concealed in a second-floor loft on Ludlow, Kuma Inn espouses both tapas and Pacific Rim fusion, which might make you yawn and turn the page, only the food is improbably excellent. Varying the fusion terrain, some of the best dishes are from the Philippine canon, including lechon kawali--crisp pork belly with a puckering and spicy soy dip. Anything made with Chinese sausage is also a good bet, such as the flat round omelet made with scallions, sprouts, and sausage. Alas, the wine list is mainly sakes: You'll need an expert to decipher it.
Tips from foursquare
Impress your date at this intimate dinner spot, which offers shareable Asian “tapas” created by chef King Phojanakong. The small plates are also affordable, with most in the $7–$12 range.
Feels more cool than the food is good (hidden staircase, no sign). Pass on the paella, but shoot for the chinese sausages. ps: BYOB.

Check out Kuma Inn. I think I went here many years ago and downed three giant bottles of sake. don't remember. must go back to check out -- go up flight of stairs
Asian small plates. Dishes you'll definitely want to order: Chinese sausages and the mushrooms with bamboo shoots.
