Village Voice's Description

What do you call a pop-up that gets a permanent home? A plop-down? It's a pertinent question for Maharlika, which went brick-and-mortar in the East Village after spending much of 2011 as a temporary, roving Filipino “moderno” restaurant. Having started as a brunch spot, it's unsurprising that the midday meals shine compared with the evening offerings (which aren't bad, but occasionally display a certain amateurishness). Try the Eggs Imelda, porridgey arroz caldo, or the tocilog ilog breakfast, which contains tender strips of 7 Up–cured pork tenderloin, garlic rice, and a fried egg. Much of the food is heavy, but isn't that why afternoon naps were invented?

Tips from foursquare

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the crispy, chewy sisig, featuring pork belly and lesser-loved pig parts, punched up with garlic, onion and citrus. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

  • The New York Times on 11/29/11

    Recommended dishes: Sizzling sisig, arroz caldo, bangus, puqui puqui and kare kare.

    Staff was super nice! Get the Kare-Kare and llongo hot tog. Soo goood.

  • Jake S. on 01/02/13

    If you aren't ordering Spam Fries as an appetizer, you are making a huge mistake.

  • Tim P. on 01/06/13

    The Longsilog is awesome and a great mix of savory and sweet. Sit by the bar and you'll get some awesome insight and tips on the food from the bartender.
